A proposal of marriage, a pending divorce, and a Christmas Eve tragedy will change the lives of strangers Jay Avery and Claire Jordan in ways they never imagined. 

Alone on Christmas Eve, San Francisco biochemist-turned-cosmetics magnate Jay Avery prepares to iron out the details of what he hopes will be a quiet divorce from his surgeon wife, Hope Rosenberg. On the other side of the Bay City, acclaimed photographer Claire Jordan eyes the final gift under the tree--a tiny box she suspects holds an engagement ring from her media mogul boyfriend, feisty Brit Calvin Butterworth. As the night wears on, strangers Jay and Claire have no idea that their lives are about to intersect in the most unexpected way.

You've painted a realistic picture of a couple in trouble. I like the relationship with his best friend, and I like your writing style -- it engages without being too obvious, and gets us inside the characters' heads without being too analytic.  Nice job!

At first, they'd made it a game, each trying to one-up the other....
That is a sad marriage. It would.have been better for them if they just live together without marrying
You are really good. Love the humour and your narrative skills. Kept me hooked on..This is my 2 book from you work..

I truly believe this is a lost art. Text messages and emails... there is not a personal touch to those. Even as good as I am at communicating I found it hard to discuss deep personal issues with my late husband.
