    HEART'S DESIRE - LAURA PEDERSEN

Hallie Palmer is now in college.  She heard someone crack open her bedroom door.  It turned out to be Bernard Stockton, the person who helped save her when she was having so many problems when she was younger. 

It seems Bernard is very upset because his longtime boyfriend, Gil, left him.  Bernard explained to Hallie that ever since Bernard's older brother died, he has become more distant and all of a sudden their relationship was over. 

This all couldn't have happened at a worst time for Hallie.  She had her exams coming up and knew she had to do well on them because her grades have not been all that good.  She also needed to stop at Career Services and figure out how to make some money this summer. 

Upon Hallie's return back to her apartment Bernard was still there.  He asked Hallie what was happening with her summer internship.  Hallie stated she had the internship but it didn't pay anything.  Bernard was very happy to hear this.  Bernard wanted her to come back home and continue with the job she was doing - yard work.  Hallie had the feeling Bernard had something more in mind. 

Bernard finally admitted to Hallie that he needed her help in getting Gil back.  His mother was no help in this situation.  Hallie, on the other hand, was very clever. 

Is Hallie successful at getting Bernard and Gil back together?

This novel is an excellent sequel to Beginner's Luck.  Laura Pedersen has done a clever job at creating these very "different" characters.  If you have read Beginner's Luck and found these characters unique, you will be happy to see this group continue with their shenanigans.  This book will make you laugh many times.  It is unforgettable and one you will thoroughly enjoy.
