Following three harrowing months of caring for her cancer stricken mother, whose treatments apparently are working and her Dallas boyfriend of two years Brad Foster abruptly dumping her, Casey Tompkins escapes her personal woes and the summer Texas heat. She travels to the EMERALD REFLECTIONS Bed & Breakfast in Belfast, Maine. Casey hopes to write her second novel, but her computer fails to operate. The owners ask their friend widower Alex Kettner to fix Casey¿s laptop. Alex is attracted to Casey, the first female he has shown interest in since his wife Carole died from a brain tumor three years ago. He cannot deal with feelings of betrayal because he loved his deceased spouse whom he was married to for twelve years. Casey finds Alex fascinating, but questions whether she should seek a man when she is on the rebound. Both rationalize that she is here to write a book on an 1853 romantic tragedy. Fate intercedes as they coincidentally meet at the same restaurant and agree to share a table. Soon, love starts to flourish, but is it enough for something permanent? Fans of a charming contemporary romance starring two delightful lead protagonists will cherish EMERALD REFLECTIONS. The story line adheres to its main theme of love blossoming between two deserving, but wary warriors. A subplot involving the tragic 1853 tale of love is not only smoothly incorporated into the prime tale, but actually propels forward the main story. Readers who enjoy a picturesque locale with endearing characters and a straightforward love story will peruse this novel and demand more works by Jim Howell and Barbara Carraway. Harriet Klausner

I wasn¿t at all sure what to expect when I received this book. I¿m glad to say I loved it and can¿t wait to read more by these two. Casey Tomkins is going to Maine for vacation and to try to get out of her writer¿s block. If this trip helps her get over the breakup with her ex-boyfriend, then that¿s just a bonus. EMERALD REFLECTIONS is a wonderfully fast read with just enough romance to be thrilling. This is a story that is sure to please you. Reviewed by Wendy Keel... November 2002

Emerald Reflections is a wonderful, quick read for a lazy afternoon, blessed with great, well-rounded characters and a truly lovely setting, a delight for the senses! The plot flowed smoothly, and while there were no surprises, this rich tale provides several hours of calm amusement to soothe ruffled nerves. The authors have done a great job transporting the reader to a gentler, kinder place, populated with generous and down to earth people. In fact, this reader is ready to hop into a car and drive to Maine¿
