Publisher's Summary

Andrea Blake's life has order. Everything is meticulously laid out and planned, from her house in its quiet neighborhood to her career path at Hagan's, the largest supermarket chain in the Northeast. Andrea knows what she wants.
Enter Kendall Foster, the distractingly attractive woman in charge of sales for her family's local microbrewery and somebody who wants very much to get her beer onto Hagan's shelves. A decision that happens to be Andrea's. The physical attraction is immediate and hard to resist, but Andrea doesn't need a complication like Kendall in her life, not when she's rocketing toward predictable security.
But Kendall is fun. And smart. And oh, so sexy. Can she convince Andrea that her rather flat, flavorless life could be way better with just a little bit of spice?

Alternate Version Maybe?

I'm guessing that "A Little Bit of Spice" began it's literary life as an alternate version of "Too Close To Touch." After all the plot's the same, the setting's the same and the ending's the same. Which doesn't have to be a negative; the the lead characters are, for the most part, well written and eventually likable (Andrea.) The supporting characters, with the exception of Julie and Andrea's mother are well written. The narrative doesn't stray far from the typical romance novel, but neither does it go too far outside the realm of reality. The information about beer and it's brewing is a nice touch as are Kendall's family dynamics and the way the Foster family is warm and loving without the author resorting to the same tired literary cliches as they almost always do. The obligatory breakup scene, a staple of the genre, is predictable and contrived as it almost always is, and the ending is entirely predictable. Still, this is a feel good story and an easy listen and not a bad way to spend a few hours.

Quandary of Ethics and Love

I listened to Too Close to Touch, the previous story of Kaily, Gretchen, and their ethical dilemma, three times. This story is shorter, but just as intense. As in Too Close, Kendal and Andrea have strong work ethics and senses or propriety. On the one hand, perhaps the reader might want wistful fantasy, propriety be darned! That's not reality, though. The fantasy is of two women finding their way to each other's hearts in the most pleasant of realities... Girl meets girl. Girls, amidst strong pulls and amazing chemistry work to do right by each other, striving for respect for one another's years of goals and efforts. Having someone not sublimate my life's work is a pretty good fantasy, as far as I'm concerned.
