Class of '85 Series
Recovering gambler Jim Rawlings returns to Summerville to take the biggest chance of his life--bidding at auction for the once-grand Summerville Inn. But to make the hotel a success, he needs a world class executive chef.
Chef Genie King attends the Summerville Inn auction with dreams of becoming executive chef in her own kitchen. Years ago, she worked at the Inn with Jim, but she never expected her Class of 85 heartthrob to bid at the sale also.
Together, Jim and Genie can purchase and rehab the Inn in time for their twenty-fifth high school reunion, but working together means Jim must share long-hidden secrets with the woman he still loves. Will Genie reject the man with a past? Or will she love the man he's become?
Jim Rawlings returns to Summerville with a degree in Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration. Genie King is the home town girl turned executive chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America who dreams of having her own kitchen. Both have plans on restoring the Old Summerville in to its old glory.
Sharon Buchbinder tells a compelling story of two people who share a common bond. In an act of sheer desperation they form an unorthodox business partnership to out-bid a goodfella and save the Inn from being turned into a casino. When someone starts sabotaging their efforts, will they have enough resources to complete the Inn? Will the police stop the perpetrators before someone gets hurt?
A great read by Sharon Buchbinder!
