Lili had hoped to inherit her fatherís shares in his grocery store when he died, and was shocked to discover he sold 51% of them to a large grocery chain leaving her with the minority share. She is furious at her fatherís old-fashioned attitude of women in charge of anything. Ken, the man who owns Adamís foods, isnít too popular with Lili as he now has the majority share in her store. Doesnít matter that he is drop dead gorgeousÖ. Or does it?

I would describe this as a cozy romance. The main characters are both good looking business types and the setting is very important to the story. It is one of those easy reads when you are enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon!

As Kenís life starts to encroach on Liliís life, her resentment to him grows. So does her attraction, much to her annoyance.

The story is very typical in its style, but this does not detract from its enjoyment. It is a lighthearted story that doesnít pretend different. The plot isnít heavy or mysterious. The characters are good, well described and interesting. Both have distinct personalities.

Secondary characters are fairly numerous but not totally important to the story as the plotline really centres so much round the hero and heroine, the rest are just to show who features in their lives. Perhaps. Agnes, Liliís Aunt and her Mother, Sarah are the only two who stand out in their own right.

The reader gets a good insight into the running of a large retail outfit. The author researched this very well.

I liked the story; it was a pleasing easy read.
