Home, James! by Mary Howard

When Alison Parker inherits her great-aunt’s estate, she gets more than she bargains for. Along with the 20-room mansion, the 40-acre citrus grove, and the antique furniture, comes the most prize possession of them all: James, the chauffeur. All Alison can think about, day and night, is finding different excuses to get James to take her for a ride in the Rolls. This romantic-comedy will get you laughing, make you feel adventurous, and leave you wanting more.

Targeted Audience: Working Women
