I'm a sucker for most stories with updated versions of the ancient gods, especially the Greek gods! Couldn't resist this one, which reminded me a little of the TV show Cupid. The god of love has to bring together the perfect couple, but without resorting to his usual bag of tricks. Will be interesting to see if he can pull it off!

Does love as we once knew it still exist? In our age of Twitter, Match.com. texting, sexting, iPhones and Facebook, can two adults - he a West Coast book anthologist, she a Vermont maple sugar farmer - fall in love the old-fashioned way, through meeting, attraction, lust, adversity, resolution? No, says Jove, God of Gods. Yes, says his son, the God of Love, whose career depends on it...
I've worked with Lou Aronica at The Story Plant before and have always been happy with their books, so thought I'd expand my boundaries a little and give this one a try.

Matt DeMarco is an accomplished Manhattan attorney with more than his share of emotional baggage. His marriage ended disastrously, his ex-wife has pulled their son away from him, and her remarriage to a hugely successful Arab businessman has created complications for Matt on multiple levels. However, his life shifts from troubled to imperiled when two cops - men he's known for a long time - come into his home and arrest his son as the prime suspect in the murder of the boy's girlfriend.
Awhile back, I signed up to be a Frito Lay Fan at their website. I love potato chips and buy Tostitos in bulk at BJs, so was very excited when I received a Frito Lay Fan Pack in the mail! While I'm a Lay's Potato Chip fan from way back, I'd never tried the other two. The Lime Tostitos were a little too strong for my taste, but I'm a new fan of Sun Chips! And I love the tote bag they came in, and have already used it for groceries. Sweet!
Thank you Frito Lay!
