Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Maeve Branch is neck-deep in embarrassment. Her husband disappeared with millions in embezzled funds and she discovered he'd been cheating on her for years! Now Maeve is broke and brokenhearted--shutting out everything except her family, her twin sons' NASCAR careers and her beloved animal shelter.

Oil tycoon Chuck Lawrence can hardly believe that the lovely woman volunteering at the shelter is the socialite the tabloids can't stop talking about. His code of honor demands that he help her, but while he advises Maeve on her financial affairs and she introduces him to the world of NASCAR, he begins to wonder if he can teach her to trust a man again--and let him into her heart....


About Jean Brashear

Jean Brashear would rather read a good book than eat. (Unless we're talking chocolate, in which case her question would be "Why do I need to choose just one?") Her children grew up knowing the difference between the "Mm-huh" nod that meant she was still deep in the story and being the clear focus of actual attention. They grew adept at an early age at snapping fingers and developing just the right tone to say "Mom?"ÿ- edgy enough to suggest possible admonition without generating a full-blown dash for 911.But she'd never seriously considered that she could write a book until her last child was in high school. With no training or experience past high school English, it was quite a leap to assume she couldÿ- but from the very first effort, rough as it was, Jean received encouragement about her raw talent. She made the bold statement to her family and friends that she wouldn't allow herself to give up for at least five yearsÿ- but she admits that when she said it, she was certain five weeks was ample time, or five months at most, to sell a book...did she ever have a surprise in store as she learned about the publishing business!But she kept to her word (as much as anything out of fear of so much crow to eat if she wimped out); she wrote and wrote, submitted and submitted, endured the rejections so familiar to most writersÿ- but just over two years later, she sold her first book. She's been finalist for and won numerous awards, and she often kicks herself that she waited so long to figure out what to be when she grew upÿ- but all in all, she's just happy to have found her way, late-bloomer or not. She figures she's a living example that it's never too late to do something crazy.She treasures hearing from her readers. Contact her via her web site at: www.jeanbrashear.com.
