The illegitimate daughter of a psychologist, herself a shrink, never met her errant father while alive, but she inherits his Boston townhouse upon his death. With great trepidation, she moves in lock, stock, and father fixation. Gradually, she finds that she has also inherited his secrets, his cat, his irresistible hunk of a gardener, and an intriguing manuscript called “Flirting with Pete.” This romance novel sparkles with the personality, sensitivity, and sensuality of Barbara Rosenblat, who, in addition to well serving the qualities that lovers of the genre expect, imbues the story with depth and dignity. She underplays the graphic though coyly phrased sex scenes, preferring to play up the emotional gratifications of physical closeness, the fulfillment that derives from the presence of love where before there was only loneliness and alienation.
