Unlike many authors who write the same basic story again and again, McCarthy switches it up so that each book is different while still exhibiting her excellent ability to create characters readers feel connected to. Jamie Peters is the retro-hippy of her group of friends. Her wild, curly hair; rounded body; and long flowing skirts add to her earth-mother appeal. Unfortunately, the men who appeal to her are fixer-uppers who need her help. She is a social worker in New York, and one of her success stories, an ex-con transvestite who tells fortunes, predicts that she'll meet her soul mate. Enter Jonathan "Jack" Davidson, a former day trader who, after making millions, quits his job. They literally run into each other on the subway, and it's kismet, but Jack has a lot of secrets that he can't come clean about in light of Jamie's disdain for "suits" with money. Readers who enjoy lighthearted yet sensual tales will love McCarthy's latest. Maria Hatton
