"Jill-of-all-trades Maggie is about to fix stuffed shirt James"
James Wyatt, president of Wyatt Industries was all
business. He doesn't understand just why he reacted so
strongly to Maggie Kendall's innocently teasing
question "When was the last time Jamie was allowed out to
play?" BUT he does know that Maggie is the one he wants as
a playmate. Although he cannot stop thinking of her, how
can he consider a serious relationship with someone who
will demand more of his attention than he is able to give?
Maggie started MAGGIE'S MISCELLANY soon after her parents
died as a way to support herself and her younger sister and
brother. Her successful but unique business has her
dressing in many costumes. Just her luck to meet the man
of her dreams dressed in greasepaint for her job as a clown
at a children's birthday party. Can she show the man she
loves that it is possible to have a fun in life and work?
The author gives entertaining descriptions of some of
Maggie's unique jobs and the humor found when involved in a
courtship. The characters are full and the action fast and
entertaining. The conflict Maggie feels about her role in
Jamie's life is well written and no less intense because of
the humor of the story. You will find yourself caring that
these two can work out their personal conflicts and have
the HEA promised by true love. Meanwhile, as is Kasey's
trademark, the secondary characters add a special dimension
to what is already an enjoyable story.
