"Perfect Blend" by Sue Margolis:
After enduring her share of commitment-phobic boyfriends, Amy Brown trades in her high-powered PR job and designer shoes to embark on the journey of single motherhood. Now, with a rambunctious boy of six and chaotic shifts serving decadent muffins and high-octane brew at a local coffee bar, Amy could use a fix herself—preferably the sexy, smoky-eyed grande type.

No one is more shocked than Amy to discover that Sam Draper is made perfectly to order: hot, sweet, and delicious. There is just one teeny problem. He’s the architect for the neighborhood’s brand-new Bean Machine, her employer’s fiercest rival. Still, Sam is sexy, fun, and really likes Amy’s son, Charlie. Amy can’t resist the steamy passion—or the feeling that Sam is hiding a secret or two. Could there be something rotten in the beans that make up the Machine’s secret blend? Or is it something more personal? Harnessing her untapped yet formidable journalistic skills, Amy blows the lid off a story that will change her life, but will Sam stick around to share it? (Summary courtesy of Random House.)

Melissa A:
A touching and hilarious story from one of my favorite chick lit authors! See my tribute to Ms. Margolis, which features a review of this novel, as well.

Melissa P:
This was the first book of Sue’s that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed the story as well as her writing style. So many families these days are blended and I like that Sue wasn’t afraid to touch on a subject that is sometimes taboo. Instead of being from a second wife’s or a divorced woman’s point of view, it was from the viewpoint of a mother of a fatherless child.
