This is a light, humorous, romantic read. The characters cope with emotional stresses at work and home but the underlying theme is one traditional to romantic novels - will Tess and Jack get together in the end?
She knew he wanted her, in spite of his doubts. He just wasn't ready to face it yet. He still had a few emotional hurdles to get over first. She had to back off a bit, give him time to come to terms with the idea .... It wasn't her usual style, to play the waiting game. But Jack Tyler was worth waiting for.
