Overview

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.

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.

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..................
