As her mother bugs her over the men or lack of in her life and her father is so proud of his Ph.D. daughter, Reese worries about seeing the best man. Two years ago at a New Year's Eve party, Reese and Brian Doren shared a heavenly kiss, but he never followed up on it. It is bad enough that she will see him at the ceremony but she also has to serve him when he visits everyday the coffee shop section of the Roland and Fisk bookstore where Reese works part time. This time Brian plans to follow up on what he let slip away two years ago due to distraction and ignorance. He plans to explore his attraction for Reese if she is willing.

BLUSHING PINK is an entertaining contemporary romance that is at its best when Reese's irritating mom stays off stage. The lead couple and the rest of the vast support ensemble have distinct personalities that enable the audience to understand Reese from her non-confident heart to the warts and icons that make up her brain. Though mom deserves a PCU afternoon delight locked in a room hearing a non-stop recording of her nagging, readers will overall appreciate this fine tale.
