Overview

From Sue Margolis, the beloved author of Forget Me Knot and Gucci, Gucci Coo, comes a clever, capricious novel about lust, longing, and sizing up the competition.
 
After enduring her share of commitment-phobic boyfriends, Amy Brown trades in her high-powered PR job and designer shoes to embark on the journey of single motherhood. Now, with a rambunctious boy of six and chaotic shifts serving decadent muffins and high-octane brew at a local coffee bar, Amy could use a fix herself—preferably the sexy, smoky-eyed grande type.

No one is more shocked than Amy to discover that Sam Draper is made perfectly to order: hot, sweet, and delicious. There is just one teeny problem. He’s the architect for the neighborhood’s brand-new Bean Machine, her employer’s fiercest rival. Still, Sam is sexy, fun, and really likes Amy’s son, Charlie. Amy can’t resist the steamy passion—or the feeling that Sam is hiding a secret or two. Could there be something rotten in the beans that make up the Machine’s secret blend? Or is it something more personal? Harnessing her untapped yet formidable journalistic skills, Amy blows the lid off a story that will change her life, but will Sam stick around to share it?

Perfect Blend is as addictive as a Frappuccino—but not nearly as fattening.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Trouble is brewing for aspiring London journalist and single mom Amy Walker in Margolis's frothy, perky latest (after Forget Me Knot). Amy's coffee shop job is threatened when news hits that a Bean Machine franchise will be opening nearby; her love life is falling apart; her six-year-old son, Charlie, wants a father; and on top of it all, the strapping architect working on the evil chain coffee shop has all the markings of a great catch--except for his allegiance with the evil corporation. Then there's Amy's dad, who's dating an erotic poetess, and her mom, who's getting it on with a shaman while trying to get over her divorce. Despite the personal chaos, Amy's determined to break into big-time journalism with a splashy story, and she just might find a juicy one in a swelling local epidemic of man-boobs. Granted, moobs isn't the most appetizing of plot hooks, but Margolis milks as much titillating fun out of the setup as can be reasonably expected. (Sept.)

    Love, love, loved it!

    I've read nearly all of her books and once again she did not let me down. If you are looking for a lite, funny and a bit saucy book this would be the one. Spin Cycle is the first book of her's that I read and I have been hooked since.

    This is a fascinating slice of life in modern day London

    In London Amy Brown left the public relations field to raise her son Charlie as a single mom. Now that he is six years old and in school, she has returned to work planning to become a freelance reporter, but fails to obtain any work in the field. She works at her friend Brian Potter's Café Mozart coffee shop.

    Brian has a commitment phobia as he goes through women faster than his customers can drink a cup of coffee. Amy's other best friend Bel is a struggling actress who earns a living doing electronic messages. She always meets brutes. Amy believes her two BFFs are meant for each other.

    When her opinionated sister Victoria opens her mouth most people including her parents and their significant others ignore her. Architect Sam Draper challenges Victoria's latest assertion. Even though he is building a nearby mega coffee shop for a client, Amy instantly likes and admires him for speaking back while he is attracted to her. However, she also knows that when her boyfriends meet Charlie, they flee.

    This is a fascinating slice of life in modern day London with Amy as the anchor of the entertaining story line. Each of the key players has issues that frighten them, but the underlying premise is as bad as these seem the world will breathe tomorrow. That enchanting generalization also detracts slightly from the specificity of the tsuris like Brian's terror of going bankrupt, Victoria's fear of inadequacy and Amy's efforts to be a working single mom. Still fast-paced with a touch of jocularity, fans will enjoy this lighthearted contemporary.
