HOW SWEET IT IS

Single mom Lizzie Bea Carpenter learned long ago that no white knight was coming to save her. A hardworking waitress at the local diner, she's raising her daughter to be like the independent women in her "Enemy Club"—high school rivals turned best friends, promising to always tell each other the whole truth and nothing but!

Yet part of Lizzie wishes she did have a man's help, just for small stuff, like fixing up the house. Her fairy godmother must have been listening, because Dante "Tay" Giovanni soon appears. He's sexy, kind, and offering assistance—no strings attached.

Slowly, steadily, Lizzie's heart opens. But the grip of the past is fierce, and nothing in life is ever really free. Tay has his own tragedies to overcome, but if he can, he'll fix more than Lizzie's home. He'll show her just how sweet it is to be loved by him.

Lizzie Carpenter lives with her 14-year-old daughter, Paige, in Galton, NY, in the house where she grew up, and has been waitressing in the same diner since finding herself an unwed 16-year-old mother. The Carpenter girls seem content, until word arrives that Paige's long-unheard-from father is coming from Switzerland to get to know his daughter. As Lizzie and her Enemy Club girlfriends bemoan the Ratbastard's possible reappearance, Dante Giovanni sits at the diner counter waiting to restart his life. A year ago, he went through a red light and killed a woman in an oncoming car. Will a bagful of money settle accounts with the woman's daughter, a Galton University student? Tay overhears Lizzie's wish for a handyman who will help her repair her home and then disappear. Is this the outlet for his insomnia as well as his guilt? Verdict In this first of a quartet featuring female enemies-turned-friends, Gunn lets independent Lizzie finally accept help to get her life back on track while her remorseful Mr. Fix-it tries to figure out if he can ever move forward—even at 25 mph. The writing here is crisp and astute; the dialog crackles with witty charm. Gunn is a pseudonym for author Diana Holquist. For all collections.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
