THE BOTTOM LINE by Sandy James

(May 6, 2014; Forever Yours E-Book; $2.99)

When life gets tough and love is hard to find, four friends take their troubles to lunch. Surviving a failed marriage and an illness that almost takes her life, high school teacher Mallory Hamilton needs the Ladies Who Lunch more than ever . . .

After a year of upheaval, Mallory has had her fill of change—with one exception. Her house is a disaster, and she wants it fixed. Hiring a contractor to finish the projects her ex-husband started will help her banish the past so she can return to the life she had before everything went awry. But her contractor is sexy, sweet, and single, which threatens the peaceful, solitary life Mallory has planned for herself.

Ben Carpenter has had a hard time raising his daughter without his ex-wife’s help. His new client’s projects will give him the extra income he needs, not to mention afternoons alone with a gorgeous woman. Though their attraction is undeniable, Ben sees the fear and pain hiding in Mallory’s beautiful eyes. But how can he help her if she won’t let him in? Ben can fix just about anything-but can he fix Mallory’s broken heart?

    We love to go to a local sushi/hibachi place called Hanabi. They have a “Happy Hour” and have several sushi rolls that are half priced, plus they have the most amazing sushi anywhere in the area!

    I love my kindle reader but the back light is no longer working 🙂 A new one would be great for my eyes!

  15. Michelle S May 8, 2014 at 11:58 am -

    I like to go to a quiet place – so that we can really chat. This is usually a restaurant but it also has to be a place that won’t rush us.

  16. Lisa G May 8, 2014 at 9:17 pm -

    We like to go to Olive Garden. It has a nice atmosphere and great food.

  17. Seyma Shabbir May 8, 2014 at 11:44 pm -

    I love sushi, so Sushi Thai is my favorite. For chain restaurants, I love Olive GArden. They have great salad and breadsticks!

    My friends and I enjoy going to eat n park for lunch to discuss what’s going on in our lives, catch up and unwind from our busy lives.

  21. Wendy Arnott May 11, 2014 at 2:47 pm -

    Our favorite place gets changed up regularly, depending on who is going and where we are when the “I could vent” call goes out. Sometimes we go for Chinese, other times we hit a burger joint or another restaurant. With two vegetarians, two redhead and two others in our group as long as it is a sit-down, order from the menu restaurant we are pretty game for whatever. Dessert lately has been Menchies if the restaurant is near by and every few months we gather at one gals home for tea, veggies and nibbles.

  22. Melissa Douglass May 14, 2014 at 2:40 pm -

    Definitely California Pizza Kitchen!

  23. Tammi L May 14, 2014 at 4:44 pm -

    My favorite place is Japanese Village if everyone is happy and well… if things are going to get serious then it is better to be at home.

  24. Tina F May 15, 2014 at 12:25 am -

    my friends and I have 3 different places we love going to the Keg, Crabby Joes and Mothers to catch u on whats going on

  25. Jane Ritz May 15, 2014 at 6:41 pm -

    My daughter is my best friend. Our favorite place is a Japanese restaurant. It’s quiet and good talk time.

    My friends and I love going to olive garden.

  27. David Smith May 16, 2014 at 11:26 pm -

    I don’t go out to eat for lunch or at all with any friends. When we do go out, about 3-4 times per year it is just with my fiance and I and sometimes also with my son.

  28. Paula V May 17, 2014 at 9:40 am -

    I live in a small tourist town that has a lots of quaint cafes that are perfect for quiet conversations of catching up.
