Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Phillips ( Fancy Pants ) recovers from a sluggish start to offer a fun and lively look at lots of `tales' already love, microchips and rock 'n' roll. In 1976, California socialite Susannah Faulconer is engaged to marry an up-and-coming executive in her father's technology corporation when Sam Gamble hustles his way into Susannah's well-ordered life with a revolutionary product: a prototype for a microcomputer, the work of electronics maven Yank Yankowski. Sam, a long-hairedp. 42 visionary, captures Susannah's imagination, and when he crashes her picture-perfect garden wedding, she hikes up her gown and hops onto the back of his Harley. Her euphoria is short-lived as she realizes that neither Yank nor Sam has the requisite business sense to succeed in pk their venture. She digs in, making the most of her upper-crust training and a few library books on business, but it's clear they need a professional. The unlikely entrepreneurs pique the interest of marketing wizard Mitchell Blaine. Mitch sees Susannah as Sam's ``woman trouble'' but when he tries to cut her out of the company, he learns that under the ex-debutante facade is a woman who can play hardball with the boys. (June)

This is one of her earlier books. It's good,but her work is now fine honed and much more enjoyable.

Not my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, but still a good read. Revolves around the upstart of personal computers and is very informative with how PCs really became popular with people at home, but was lacking in the romance department. Phillips is always a go to author for me, but this one was a tad disappointing.
