Featured: An Unlikely Elegance by Patty Wiseman Purchase:

Kidnapping, bombings, and murder weave a blanket of secrecy, as well as the awakening of Fanny’s heart to the man she will choose.

Detroit, 1935

The Crystal Daffodil marked the complete transformation of Fanny Zapelli from cheap, gangster girl to Miss Z, the sophisticated owner of the best restaurant in town.

Exposure of her past is jeopardized by the return of Jack Grey, a former rival mobster. He steps off the train and stares right into those amber eyes. Her beauty captivates him, but he loses sight of her in the train station bustle.

Whether by design or a stroke of luck he ends up at The Crystal Daffodil and comes face to face with this elegant woman.

Her rebuff does nothing to deter him, and the pursuit of her hand becomes his priority.

However, Gordon Young, a local newspaper editor, has designs on her, as well, and will stop at nothing to win her.

An eclectic group of characters joins the tug of war for her affections. Moose returns to protect his first love, Melvin, the chauffeur, suppresses feelings that go far beyond friendship, and Alexander Adams, a former suiter, hopes to pick up where they left off.

Kidnapping, bombings, and murder weave a blanket of secrecy, as well as the awakening of Fanny’s heart to the man she will choose.

From Patty Wiseman:

The woman on the cover of this book is my own beautiful granddaughter, Savannah Cameron. She is holding my mother’s pearls. I love putting personal touches to my stories. They might not mean anything to the readers, but they sure mean everything to me!

When you come across it, you might well wrinkle your brow in confusion, but yes, a type of Sherry glass is called a schooner. Of course, you might think of this name as a type of sailing ship, and it is. I love putting interesting facts in my stories.
