Elizabeth was dealt a blow when her husband died suddenly. As part of the grieving process, she reconsiders what appears to be a cozy, comfortable upper-class life and decides that it isn't as fulfilling and satisfying as she'd like it to be. Digging up the mystery novels she wrote some 20 years earlier and abandoned upon marrying and having children, she pursues her girlhood dream of becoming an author. Her children, who are on the verge of independence, are as supportive as they can be in their own self-involved ways. However, she encounters stern disapproval from her former mother-in-law, who is concerned that Elizabeth's new career would appear as though she wasn't left properly provided for. I wouldn't describe Elizabeth as a woman scorned, as in the above product description. Instead, her discovery that her husband wasn't faithful to her only strengthened her determination to forge ahead with her goals.

Elizabeth attends a writer's workshop and meets an energetic and dynamic younger woman with whom she establishes a refreshing and rewarding friendship. De De's uncle happens to be a famous author, and when Elizabeth meets him, the chemistry between them nearly ignites the pages! I wouldn't describe Jake as a playboy or womanizer, but rather someone who has come to realize that he needs to move beyond shallow relationships and casual sex, and re-invent a more fulfilling life for himself.

This is a good light read for summer. I enjoy this author because she actual has a plot and doesn't write in the typical romance style.

He's a bestselling author; she's an aspiring mystery writer. He's a sexy playboy type, a confirmed bachelor; she's a recent widow with two teenagers. They don't seem to have much in common, but when Jake Ruttenburg and Elizabeth Leninger meet at a writer's conference, the attraction is immediate.
Elizabeth had been the perfect Philadelphia society wife. Her husband left her financially stable and debt-free, but she's trying to cope with the loneliness of his death and the advent of empty-nest syndrome. She's also astounded to learn, when going through his personal papers, that her husband had been having a longtime affair with a woman in his San Francisco office.

Jake has been living a carefree life. After a brief marriage with a less-than-honest wife, he's been enjoying his life as a wealthy bachelor and all the freedom it allows. However, when he returns home exhausted after a whirlwind book tour, Jake finds that he can't seem to keep Elizabeth off his mind. Can love conquer a confirmed bachelor and a woman scorned? Joan Hohl's Another Spring highlights how sweet love can be the second time around.
