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.)
