Fans of New York Times bestselling authors Carly Phillips, Jennifer Probst and Julie James will fall in love with Sherrill Bodine!


Darlings, what a to-do at the Daily Mail today! After fifteen years as Chicago's gossip guru, Rebecca Covington has been demoted from divulger of secrets for the city's elite to headlining recipes in the Home and Food section. Apparently, a touchy senator is threatening legal action for Rebecca's latest extramarital scoop. But Windy City rumor has it that new CEO and dreamy Pierce Brosnan look-alike David Sumner downgraded Rebecca in favor of fresher, younger blood on the social beat.

Industry insiders expect Rebecca to fight her denouement, and inquiring minds have already seen the feisty maven trading quips and searing glances wtih her arresting new boss. Rebecca swears she'll reclaim her shining star status, but can the dishy diva even cook? And how can she ignore David's arousing effect on her sensibilities?

Don't miss a trick, darlings. Sparks are going to fly.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 20, 2008 – Bodine's contemporary romance has strong bones, but the execution is marred by stock characters. Media mogul David Sumner buys the Chicago Mail and immediately moves gossip columnist Rebecca Covington to the home and food section, replacing her with young, aggressive Shannon Forrester. Rebecca enlists her gay best friend, Harry Grant, to cook while she spices up her columns with gossip. Bodine (author of several series romances as Lynn Leslie and Leslie Lynn) drowns her characters in clich : big-spending divorc e Rebecca's endless label-dropping ( hiked up her black Carolina Herrera skirt... not caring if the expensive Wolford fishnets got bigger holes ), Harry's immaculate home, widower David's vow to never love again, Shannon's endless jealousy. Even good chemistry between Rebecca and David can't diminish the sense that the real star is Rebecca's Juicy Couture cashmere jogging suit.

Customer Reviews

Talk of the Town

I was hooked from the first paragraph and read the book in no time. I was drawn to Rebecca immediately and liked that she was strong but had flaws. I can't wait to read another book by this author!


What a great read! I was hooked and could not put this book down. I have such a crazy schedule and I found myself reading this book at every free opportunity and when I should have been sleeping! The characters and plot are so relatable. I could see this story unfold in my mind like I was watching a film. Great job Sherrill, you should be proud of yourself. Promise me, you'll be good to yourself after you've given us so much.
