Description

Bloom's. It's not just a delicatessen--it's a destination. An institution. A world-renowned food emporium that draws millions of customers craving home-style stuffed cabbage, gourmet olive oil, and the best bagels on the planet to its block-long building on Manhattan's Upper West Side.It's also a family. Julia Bloom, the third-generation president of Bloom's, struggles to keep not just the business but all the Blooms productive and flourishing. She needs to balance the store's Old-World roots with its twenty-first-century needs, and she needs to balance the demands and whims of cranky Grandma Ida, resentful widowed mother Sondra, ambitious but lazy Uncle Jay, rebellious sister Susie, and slacker-genius brother Adam.It's a teetering tower. One misstep or misunderstanding might bring everything crashing down. And what business, what family, doesn't have its share of missteps and misunderstandings? Julia is still learning how to run Bloom's herself, relying on her tumultuous family to help her when they all have their own agendas and desires. If she fails, it could mean the end of Bloom's--and the Blooms.An irrepressible combination of wit and wisdom, Full Bloom is the compelling story of a family you'll take to your heart and might very well recognize.PRAISE FOR JUDITH ARNOLD: "Arnold's storytelling gift is sterling." - Romantic Times BOOKclub "Judith Arnold writes beautifully and poignantly!" - Romance Readers Anonymous

About Judith Arnold

USA Today bestselling author Judith Arnold knew she wanted to be a writer by the time she was four. She loved making up stories (not exactly the same thing as lying) and enjoying the adventures of her fictional characters. With more than eight-five published novels to her name, she has been able to live her dream. Four of Judith's novels have received awards from RT Book Reviews Magazine (for Best Harlequin American Romance, Best Harlequin Superromance, Best Series Romance Novel and Best Contemporary Romance Novel) and she's a three-time finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. Her novel Love In Bloom's was named one of the best books of the year by Publishers Weekly. A New York native, Judith lives in New England.
