Michelle Snow believes she is content with her life; she
has a great job in advertising, a new promotion, loving
friends and family; the only thing missing is a man.
Michelle's friends have kindly pointed out it has been at
least 10 years since she has taken a man home to meet her
parents and it's time for a little romance in her life.
Match.com is mentioned among Michelle's friends along with
a promise from Michelle to try the website for at least one
month to see if she can find a match. Michelle is not sure
why she agrees to such a crazy scheme, but after some
procrastinating, she finishes a profile and hits send.
Michelle is amazed at all the possibilities, spending hours
going through her prospects; she's about to give up when a
profile finally catches her eye and on a whim, Michelle
takes the plunge and replies.
Todd Bracken, a computer consultant for the government, is
extremely lonely eating pizza by himself on a regular basis
along with coming home to his empty, over-extended money
pit of a house. Todd is struggling to find the one woman
where everything will be easy and require hardly any work.
He is pretty sure that is wishful hope. Todd has
practically given up on his profile with Match.com
promising himself that the next woman he decides to bring
into his life must like him for himself. No more hiding or
toning down his personality. Todd adopts the motto "What
you see is what you get." With that in mind, he takes one
more look at his Match.com account to see if there are
messages he is willing to respond to. The message Todd sees
has potential in its simplicity, so he thinks, what can one
more time hurt.
THE ICING ON THE CAKE, part of the new True Vows series, is
sweet and endearing; giving us all hope that there is
someone out there for us all if you just take a chance. An
extremely enjoyable book.

An on-line dating service is not Michelle Snow's idea of how
to find love but when the Big 3-0 hits, Michelle decides she
has nothing to lose since she hasn't brought a date home in
ten years, she's professionally burned out, and her climb up
the corporate ladder has come at the expense of abandoning
her sweet dream: to own a boutique cupcakery.
Todd Bracken, early 30s and a successful technology
consultant, isn't exactly a player after being off the
market for ten years, and pours himself into his dual
passions of martial arts and home-sweet-home renovations.
Only there's no one to come home to so he decides to give
Match.com a try.
Todd isn't so sure the Internet dating scene is his thing
until a message pops up in the wee hours on a weekend night:
"I like your smile."
Todd likes 'a lot' the whole package that glides into a
French bistro in Washington, D.C. It's serious
mojo-at-first-sight but there's a glitch: Todd and Michelle
live in different cities.
Will love find its way in the digital age with a You've Got
Mail courtship when video cam kisses just aren't enough?
And when Todd challenges Michelle to not only go for her
dream but let him share it, will they be able to make it
happen together despite obstacles more plentiful than a
shower of rainbow sprinkles?
