The book centers around Ellen Brittingham (whom you met in 'Wedding Bell Blues'.) She is one of the bosom buddies and such fun to be around! She loves her friends, fixing cars, fishing, hunting, landscaping, driving a Harley Hog and Kids. She's a girl with a BIG heart. On her way home one day she spies a sunset orange Corvette driven by a very handsome fellow named Adrian Sinclair. He also notices that it's a 'she' driving that Hog. After he runs over something in the road, loses his breaks and ends up in a cornfield, Ellen gives him a ride home which just happens to be by hers. They both sense an attraction to each other and she soon finds out he is a widower, has an 11 year old son named Peter and is engaged to Selena. (Bummer) As Ellen and Pete begin to form a friendship, Adrain is feeling more drawn to Ellen. She has an easy way with his son unlike Selena. But what's a fella to do? Adrain is where he is because of Selena. Ellen is only his neighbor...right? Here is where things get complicated....and FUN! You will love all the secondary characters and of course you get to see all the bosom buddies again!!! I found myself laughing out loud in many places and several funny lines that will stay with me for a long time. I love the way Linda writes. Her easy style makes you feel like you are right there in Piper Cove. I highly recommend this book. You can read it as a stand alone but I think you will enjoy it much more if you read 'Wedding Bell Blues' first. I'm looking forward to the next installment!!!! Great work Linda.

A pleasant read that will be an enjoyable way to spend a day off even though a bit predictable.

How old were these folks riding around on their "hogs" and in their "Vettes"? I gave up after about 8 pages. Too childish in tone.

Stopped reading after the first few pages. It is complement, not compliment. Really, that made it past editing?

One or two odd mistakes is with mother who apparenly was raised observant regarding kosher also a jewish mother makes you a full jew jewish father only then you can claim being half rather odd use of yiddish too and ridiculous wedding as canopy was for outdoor weddings and still done ultra orthidox bubbe

One of the Four Musketeers Ellen Brittingham loves driving a motorcycle but her tomboyish behavior seems to turn off men. She has pretty much settled on the thought she will never meet someone who will embrace the real full Ellen because they will demand she give up her safety helmet for frills. Additionally Ellen has never met a man who makes her melt inside.----------------------- That is until Adrian Sinclair moves in next door. Ellen is attracted to the single dad and likes his eleven year old son Peter, whose mom Carol died giving birth to him. However, now that she finally has found the man of her dreams, she knows she cannot compete with his fiancée Selena a stunning tall blonde software marketing rep besides which she understands Pete must come first.------------------------- The second Windsor's Piper Cove tale (see WEDDING BELL BLUES) is an engaging inspirational romance starring two likable individuals who both understand that Pete comes before their needs. That mantra gives Ellen her only edge against her rival, who is beautiful and brilliant, but misses the key to Adrian¿s heart. The secondary cast, mostly the other three pals, of course Pete, Carol (through Adrian¿s pensive thoughts) and Selena, enhances the deep look at the fully developed lead couple. Fans will appreciate this warm romance.--------------------- Harriet Klausner
