Following her husband's death in a suspicious car accident, beautiful young widow Joan Medford is forced to take a job serving drinks in a cocktail lounge to make ends meet and to have a chance of regaining custody of her young son.

At the job she encounters two men who take an interest in her, a handsome young schemer
who makes her blood race and a wealthy but unwell older man who rewards her for her attentions with a $50,000 tip and an unconventional offer of marriage...

Spellbinding

I'm not much of a fiction reader but wow this was amazing. And also amazing how a man could write a woman's narrative. Love reading books

Waste of time

Any book would beat this one. Shallow. Lousy plot. Wish I could get my money back for buying it.!!!!
