Loving Spoonful
by Candice Poarch

Kimberly and Jack have it all. Loving marriage? Check. Gorgeous home? Yep. Well-paying careers? No doubt. Children? Two, and they're college-bound. The happy couple should be celebrating. Instead...Kim has just asked for a divorce.

Kim remembers a caring, attentive husband who catered to her every delicious need. Jack longs for their searing, unpredictable nights of passion (the house was christened in more than one room).

But letting go will be harder than Kim and Jack ever imagined. Especially when someone keeps setting them up on surprise "dates" with each other. And their biggest bombshell is yet to come. Will it bring them back together...or tear them apart for good?



Candice Poarch's Bio

Candice Poarch takes pride in crafting believable stories featuring African-American heroes and heroines.  The characters in her books demonstrate a strong sense of community and family support.  She firmly believes that everyday life in America (whether small town or major metropolitan city) has its own rich rewards.  She also likes telling stories that will leave today’s busy reader feeling refreshed and hopeful—not always an easy task, she says, but well worth the challenge.

Her fourteenth book, BITTERSWEET, (Dafina, July, 2006) deals with the heart, family, extended family and community.  "I really enjoyed Bittersweet... romance, comedy, mystery and intrigue...I would definitely recommend Bittersweet as a book club selection."  —Karen Monroe, Woman2Woman Book Club member.  Candice Poarch’s fifteenth book, SWEET SOUTHERN COMFORT, will be published by Kimani Press in November, 2006.

A native of Stony Creek, a small town in Southern Virginia, Candice Poarch holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Virginia State University.  Formerly a computer systems manager, writing is now her full-time career.
