Mia gives an overview of the book:

The star of Mia King's "entertaining" (Seattle Times) debut novel Good Things is back, and she's got a full plate. Deidre McIntosh is everyone's favorite go-to person. She seems so successful, so capable, so just plain perfect, with a popular cooking show, her own line of cakes and cookies, and an ideal relationship with Kevin Johnson, considered one of the most desirable men in Seattle. Then Kevin's ex-fiance, sultry magazine publisher Sabine Durant, suddenly appears, and Deidre needs help. Already intimidated by Kevin's glamorous, moneyed world--and his sister, who wants Deidre out of Kevin's life--she fears she's no match for Sabine. And the go-to girl must figure out where to go next before the tablecloth is pulled out from under her? ----- From national bestselling author Mia King comes this charming, heartwarming follow-up to Good Things (2007)....
