BLURB


Poised to become her overbearing father's right-hand man, Jaye Davis is tired of being a faceless drone, writing software. She’d rather help real people—like the family who owns a struggling glassblowing factory in rural Pennsylvania. While she’s there, she might figure out how to squash the secrets gnawing at her.

Mitchell Blake and his father keep butting heads about expanding Blake Glassware, and now Mitch has to deal with his father's consultant, Jaye. She claims online marketing will boost sales, but Mitch insists broadening their product line will increase revenue. Arguing with this doe-eyed woman makes one thing perfectly clear: she has the power to shatter his safe, lonely life.

Jaye’s got four weeks to save his glassblowing factory, but he detests her marketing plan. She’s got no place to live, but he has an extra bedroom in his house. She’s got secrets, but living with a glassblower who can see right through her would be an enormous mistake…or would it?


EXCERPT


She stood her ground and yelled, “Get on the sled, Mitchell Blake!”

“Nag, nag, nag. I’ll fly down the hill when I’m good and ready.” He barreled into her like any good linebacker.

“Ooph!” The world tipped upside down. Jaye hung over his shoulder like a dirty sack of rock salt. She dropped the snowballs and clawed at the back of his coat. “Put me down!”

“There must be a consultant talking, because I can’t hear a thing.”

“Your hearing was damaged by the wild stunts you pulled in college. Speaking of which, are you overcome by an urge to run naked through the snow?”

He swatted her on the rump. “Streaking can be arranged.”

“Wait. Let me get my camera. We can post the pictures on your company’s website.”

“Sales will go through the roof.”

She laughed, which came out in a piggish snort while she was upside down.

With a quick move, he flipped her upright and put her on the sled. He sat behind her and buckled his arm around her waist. “Like most things, sledding is better with two people.”

“No!” Irritation spiked. The last thing she needed was another man telling her what to do. She slapped her mittens on his big thigh and tried to push herself off, but the sled rocketed downhill, throwing a thick mist of snow into the air. Jaye screamed—surprised, annoyed, and laughing like a kid on a wild amusement ride all at once.

They gathered speed, careening toward a gully at the edge of the meadow.

  1. Thanks for featuring Clear as Glass! I wanted to write about a burly glassblower after I watched the men work at Simon Pearce Glassware. I decided to give my glassblower a problem: his father is doing a poor job managing their glassblowing business and hires a woman to develop a marketing plan. Mitch, of course, despises the plan.

    The last thing Mitchell Blake needs is a hot-shot consultant to "save" his glassblowing business, but this one is different. She is hiding something. If he can see through her secrets, he might have reason to fire her…or keep her forever.

    1. I enjoyed the excerpt. CLEAR AS GLASS caught my eye because of the glass blowing aspect. I have been fascinated by glass blowing since I saw a workshop at Stone Mountain Park.

      Sounds like Mitchell is going to get more than he bargain for with Jaye ;-) Thanks so much for stopping by!
