She's convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes.

Before Allie has taken her last bite of syrup-laden waffle, she's met the man of her dreams. But what she doesn't know is that he's a jewel thief who mistakenly thinks she's his contact—and so does everyone else who's after his stash of diamonds.
Suddenly Allie's world is crazily upended. And as she scrambles to prove her innocence and get back to her old life, she discovers happily ever after sneaks up when you least expect it.

Allie has rebelled against her high achieving family members to do what she loves - groom dogs. Unfortunately, they continue to treat her like a child. She believes that if she were married to some impressive man, that would solve her problems. She and her two friends come up with the idea of meeting successful businessmen by "crashing" breakfast buffets at the local hotels. All they have to do is sneak in and identify someone who looks promising, single, and sitting alone. Allie meets this great guy, the first breakfast, and they plan to meet later on for a date - so she thinks. Only he disappears, leaving his briefcase behind, and some rough characters on her tail.
This was a light, well-paced, romantic comedy with a touch of suspense as the bad guys and Allie try to find the missing
diamond - which dog ate it? This book has it all, including the unexpected twists and turns. It's not always obvious who the bad guys are and romance comes when least expected. I'm looking forward to FRESHLY BREWED.
