A Scent of Jasmine


A bitter divorce leaves beautiful Andrea Dusseaux distraught, financially strapped and longing to break away from her monotonous life in New York City. When her old college friend, Mo Callaway, calls from Phoenix and asks if she could stand-in as hostess temporarily for a few weeks at her restaurant, Andrea jumps at the opportunity to try something new and different.


Andrea is thrilled to see her old friend again and is charmed by the restaurant’s gracious setting in an old Victorian house. On day one, a mix up in reservations starts her off on the wrong foot with handsome attorney Madison McKee. But soon, her firm vow to steer clear of a new relationship quickly dissolves when she feels a strong attraction towards him.  Madison falls for her instantly and makes no secret of his intentions to capture her love.  

With each passing day, Andrea’s feelings for Madison strengthen, but then major complications arise when she discovers that he represents a prominent developer determined to bulldoze her friend’s property and erect an office complex.  Betrayed, her dreams crushed again, Andrea’s loyalties are torn.  Should she side with her friend, should she stay and fight for Madison’s love or return to her old life in New York?

She's a genius as an author!

Even the unreal seems real the way she writes it!”
