What do women want? Jonathan Templar and his poker buddies can't figure it out. Take Jonathan, for instance. He's been in love with Lissa Castle since they were kids but, geek that he is, she's never seen him as her Mr. Perfect. He has one last shot--their high school reunion. Kyle Long is equally discouraged. The pretty receptionist at his office keeps passing him over for other guys who may be taller but are definitely not superior. And Adam Edwards might be the most successful of Jonathan's friends, but he isn't having any success on the home front. His wife's kicked him out. When Jonathan stumbles on a romance novel at the Icicle Falls library sale, he knows he's found the love expert he's been seeking--Vanessa Valentine, top-selling romance author. At first his buddies laugh at him for reading romance novels, but soon they, too, realize that these stories are the world's best textbooks on love. Poker night becomes book club night...and when all is read and done, they're going to be the kind of men women want!

Review quote

Within minutes of cracking open the book, my mood was lifted...the warm, glowing feeling it gave me lasted for days. -First for Women on The Snow Globe Her characters are warm and engaging, and their interactions are full of humor. -RT Book Reviews on Bikini Season An uplifting, charming, feel-good story. -Booklist on Angel Lane Will doubtless warm more than a few hearts. -Publishers Weekly on Angel Lane Roberts' book of small-town life is as sweet as ginger cookies and as homey as raisin pie (recipes included). Readers will laugh and cry with the women lovingly portrayed in this heartwarming story that explores the joys of friendship and the power of good deeds. -RT Book Reviews on Angel Lane A congenial cast of subsidiary characters...meet Hope at a community garden plot and share their stories there. Roberts effectively knits these troubled but kindly characters together in a story line that throws the reader a few unexpected twists. -The Seattle Times on Love in Bloom Love in Bloom is a wonderful story with characters so real and defined I feel like I am personally acquainted with them....There is humor and emotion in large quantities in this fantastic book that is next to impossible to put down. Kudos and a large bouquet of flowers to Sheila Roberts for giving us one of the best books of the year. -Fresh Fiction At last! An author who writes her way straight to the heart of every woman. --#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs
