Louise Duncan has been passed over for a promotion because—according to her boss—she's too intimidating. A useful quality in court, he admits, but she scares her own clients. "Take some time off to work on your people skills" is his advice.

Louise heads for Bayberry Cove, North Carolina, and a visit with her best friend. Just as she begins to relax—thanks in part to the intriguing Navy commander who's living in the cottage she wants to rent—she meets a group of women who need her legal expertise and her take-no-prisoners attitude. So Attorney Louise Duncan gets ready to fight for justice.

Unfortunately, the commander is on the opposing team. And he's about to see a different side of Louise.

    (Thanks! But I can say that I did write chapter 3, no one else. And if someone is saying this then I guess they just will know the truthin their heart. If u dont believe me thats okay.)

    Chapter four-Berry
    She woke up with a yawn. Sunlight poured into the den. "Come on! I'll show you around camp!" Said a friendly voice, it was the Riverclan she cat from yesterday the one who had called Toger foxhearted, which he was not! "Okay." Berry agreed. She followed the she cat out of the den, it sirprised Berry to see all the warriors in one den, 'Why don't they all have their own dens? One to share with their mate, of course.' Berry thought silently to herself. But a voice interupted her thoughts "Ah, showing our guest around camp, Riverlily?" It was a strong and sturdy tom. "Yep, I am! Are you heading out on a patrol?" The she cat named Riverlily asked. "Yes indeed. Oh, Im Thrushlight." He introduced. "B-berry." She replied with a curt nod. "Nice name, welcome to Riverclan. I'll be seeing you two around then!" He said before turning to go meet up with serveral other cats in his patrol. "Handsome, isn't he?" Riverlily teased as she caugt Berry staring. "I guess." She admitted sheepishly. "Don't worry everyone in Riverclan is nice. Except for Tangleweed, but he's an elder so I guess he has the right to be cranky. But you might want to still stat away from him." Riverlily advised. Then the she cat lead them in front of a den that smelled of milk and warmth, just then two kits tumbled out. "Careful you two! You're going to get ran over someday, always charging out of the nusery as if you two rule camp. Now behave!" Riverlily scolded though Berry could see she wasn't trying to be mean. "Yes, Riverlily!" They said and ran back into the den they had come from. "This is the nusery, and those two troublemakers are Rainkit and Hailkit. Their mother is Robinwing." Riverlily explained.
    Later that day....
    "Uh... Riverlily? Can I ask you a question?" Berry asked. "Go ahead!" Riverlily said cheerfully. "Why is Tiger so bad? I get that everyone dislikes him for helping that apprentice but why?" Berry asked. "Why? Why? I'll tell you why! But what apprentice? He killed my own sister as an apprentice because she did not love him, and he loved her. Im sorry if this upsets you, but I have to say you look just like her. Perhaps this is why Tiger loves you so....." Riverlily said quietly her head bowed in defeat. "Oh..." Berry said. "Um.. I got to go." Berry lied. "Okay, bye." Riverlily said. "Bye!" And with that Berry disappeared out of camp. Her paws eventually lead her to a river. And under a huge willow she sat, trying to make sense of the past moons. 'I thouht he loved me.. and I loved him... but now I'm not so sure.' She thought sadly.

    End of chapter four. Hope u enjoyed!!!!~Author

    A fun tale

    In Fort Lauderdale, Roger Oppenheimer of Oppenheimer Straus and Baker informs Louise Duncan that she has been passed over for promotion because she lacks people skills. The selected attorney Ed Bennett may have the required people skills but is a toady with half as good of a case record as Louise has. Roger tells her to go on a needed vacation and her job was not in jeopardy so she decides to spend time with her best friend Vicki (see THE HUSBAND SHE NEVER KNEW) in Bayberry Cove, North Carolina........................ Though she plans to relax and not look at a law book, Louise becomes embroiled in a women¿s class action suit; her legal opponent is former JAG attorney turned marine biologist (National ocean and Atmosphere Administration has given him a research grant) Wes Fletcher, representing his family. As the duo battle over legal matters they fall in love, but he wants to remain near the Outer Banks while she has her life back in Florida making the commute too far to forge a permanent relationship..................... This sequel is a fun tale due to the gender wars in and out of the courtrooms. The story line moves briskly forward as Louise ably defends her clients in North Carolina and goes the extra mile to offer solutions to complex problems (something her Florida firm is just realizing the hard way). Although Wes seems like a Renaissance Man (the grant seems farfetched - how did he find time to even fill out the paperwork?), fans of contemporary tales will enjoy meeting THE WOMEN OF BAYBERRY COVE especially the apparent transient newcomer..................

    Another winner from Cynthia Thomason

    The Women of Bayberry Cove is another fun romp by author Thomason. This time two opposing lawyers are the hero and heroine, and both Louise and Wes are strong characters who challenge each other both in and out of the courtroom. Louise battles for women's rights in a small town candle factory that has been run by an all-male board for decades. Wes represents the men who try to convince him that the 'big city lawyer, Louise' is changing the very fabric of their community. The resolution of the problem is both touching and clever, and readers will enjoy how Wes uses the entire town to win Louise's heart. The dialogue is crisp and entertaining, and a couple of secondary plots add variety. The small-town setting is homey and realistic. All in all, this is a fun, fast read with an excellent message for working women.
