And when fate throws her together with Matilda, a spirited grande dame of New York society who invites her to Connecticut for Thanksgiving, she willingly accepts. English-born Matilda is delighted with her new friend - though her grandson Luke, undeniably attractive but infuriatingly arrogant, is anything but welcoming.

Sophie Apperly’s artistic family treats her like a servant. In fact, they even offer her services to other relatives. So when “evil” Uncle Ernie’s housekeeper goes to Australia for two weeks, Sophie’s mother, hoping to move up in the queue for inheritance, volunteers Sophie to take care of him. Uncle Ernie turns out, however, to be delightful, not nefarious, and when her stay is over, Sophie decides that instead of returning to familial servitude, she’ll take advantage of her friend Millie’s invitation to come to New York City. Millie even secures a nanny position for Sophie, so she’ll have enough money to survive. Unfortunately, the job doesn’t pan out, and with no green card, it looks as though Sophie will have to go back home. But when Sophie rushes to the rescue of Matilda, an elderly woman who looks as though she’s about to pass out, she and her grandson, Luke, begin a whole new chapter in Sophie’s life. A witty romance with Bridget Jones appeal. --Shelley Mosley
