Peach Kelley brings a little light into the lives of everyone she works with-or so she likes to think.

Overview

Peach Kelley brings a little light into the lives of everyone she works with-or so she likes to think. And she's a whiz at helping her coworkers at Millennium Gift Baskets with their romantic problems. Even though her own love life is the pits, finding a boyfriend is the last thing on her mind-until she meets the new network administrator, Adam Quinlan.

Preoccupied with his own chaotic life, Quin thinks Peach is spunky, pretty...and a big nuisance. But when one of their coworkers mysteriously disappears, the two join forces to dig around for answers. For the first time ever, Peach may have gotten herself into a situation she can't get out of-falling in love.

This book is OK... I was a little disappointed though. I really enjoyed Blushing Pink & Plum Girl so I was surprised this story line wasn't as good.

With her overly perky attitude towards life, Peach Kelley is very popular, even if her own life lacks romance. She's too busy trying to make sure everyone else is happy to be concerned about that. Her latest effort is getting the officer nerd set up with a lady she is sure will make him happy. Unfortunately, he disappears under strange circumstances, and thus, Peach feels obligated to find out what happened. To accomplish this, she needs Adam Quinlan's help, as he has access to resources she lacks. Soon, they are up to their ears in the investigation and finding out two things 1. something rotten is going on in their company, and 2. they are deeply attracted to each other against all logic. ............................... If the plot had focused on either romance or a mystery, it might have worked. As it is, the ''suspense' had a contrived feeling and the romance was shallow. However, Buster, the Bichon was a highly appealing character.

what a fun book! peach was a cutie, she cared about her friends and co-workers so much you could feel how much she wanted things to work out for them. and adam was so sexy and charming, peach and him had a great friendship but were even better as lovers.... there's a mystery plot too that definitly kept me guessing. i loved it!!

In Boston, bubbly optimist creative consultant Peach Kelley enjoys being little miss sunshine; her friends and co-workers think she lives a charmed golden life as she always sees the cup filled. Her upbeat outlook on life makes her popular with her peers at Millennium Gift Baskets. She is especially good at assisting others with blind dates although her own social life is nonexistent at least when it comes to men........................... Peach arranges a blind date for sad sack office accountant Dennis Emberson, a single father with a teenage daughter. She anticipates ¿Pig Pen¿s dad¿ to have the time of his lihe and perhaps even fall in love and looks forward to the post game report, but Dennis apparently vanished. Peach accompanied by the new network administrator, hunk Adam Quinlan begins investigating the disappearance. However, someone wants her to back off and threatens to harm her if she persists. Worse she finds more danger with Adam at her side as she is half in love with him although he has his own woes to deal with even if he is very attracted to the animated pain in the butt and heart Peach..................... Jill Winters latest fruity tale (see RASPBERRY CRUSH and PLUM GIRL) is an amusing romantic suspense with the emphasis on the humor and the romance. The lead protagonist is much more than JUST PEACHY as she keeps the fine tale together. Her counterpart Adam raises her hormone level while also making her concerned for breaking office fraternization rules and more so potentially her heart. Though Peach¿s Pollyanna outlook is too difficult to handle before caffeine, fans will enjoy this amateur sleuth chick lit combine that proves this is an author for all seasons.....................
