Sugar and Spice Librarian Jayne Gilbert needs a man - a man she can bring to her high school reunion. She wants to prove to her former classmates that she isn't the lonely bookworm they predicted she'd become. So, naturally, Jayne turns to a book. It's called How to Pick Up a Man. And it works, even if she attracts the attention of good-looking Riley Chambers only because she's carrying that book, not because she followed its advice! Love by Degree Going back to college, hitting the books. That's Ellen Cunningham's new life. But money's a little tight and she's lucky enough to find inexpensive lodging in a house with three young college boys. Ellen plays housemother, a situation that works for everyone - except Reed Morgan, the absentee owner. He's not pleased to find his house occupied by a bunch of college kids and Ellen. Especially Ellen."When it comes to creating a special place and memorable, honorable characters, nobody does it better than Macomber." - BookPage

"In this dual story set, narrator Andi Arndt deftly plays up the timid, insecure nature of plain Jayne Gilbert, a librarian who is so determined to show up at her ten-year high school reunion with a guy that she accepts the assistance of her mysterious neighbor. In the second story, headstrong Ellen goes back to college and moves into a house with three college guys. Though this helps with her financial situation, she finds herself at odds with the handsome owner of the house. Arndt's articulation, fluctuating tones, and varied pace are especially bewitching and comical as she portrays the fretting and confusion that prevail when the female protagonists are in the presence of their love interests.
