REMEMBER WHEN is one of my all-time favorite books of Judith McNaught. The characters are very engaging. This is one of several books about the Foster family, a family made from a second marriage of both mother and father, bringing two teenage girls together as step-sisters.
At the father's death, the women in the family pull together to make a living out of the gardening, cooking, and decorating skills the mother and grandparents have taught the girls. Much like Martha Stewart, the girls use their photography and editing skills to create books and a magazine promoting their ideas. It's fun to read a story of admirable people and interesting ideas.
Then romance kicks in, with a neighbor's former stable boy who has also made a name for himself, but both of the young people are fighting the snobbishness of the "Fashionably elite" they must mingle with, because of their humble beginnings.
I've never hobnobbed with high society, but I can imagine the challenges they face are pretty accurate. Anyway, a great read! I give it five stars!

Alone on a moonlit balcony at Houston's White Orchid Charity Ball, Diana Foster courageously upheld the sparkling image of her family's Beautiful Living magazine. Recently jilted by her fiance for an Italian heiress-an insult delivered via a sleazy tabloid-Diana was now very publicly unengaged, and surrounded by humiliating rumors. So why was billionair Cole Harrison clsing in on her with two crystal flutes and a bottle of champagne?
The former stableboy had received an ultimatum from his uncle: Cole must bring home a wife-soon-or lose his share of a booming multinational business. Coolly analytical and arrestingly attractive, Cole knew what he wanted in a bride, and Diana Foster-rich, beautiful, and principled-fit the role perfectly. But while a long, slow kiss sealed the bargain that solved both their dilemmas, neither imagined the extraordinary journey that would begin on that unforgettable night...
