The old adage "you can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family" takes on a cunning new connotation in Goudge's zesty tale of four college pals catching up on life at their fifteenth Princeton reunion. Emerson is falling in love with exactly the kind of man her pretentious mother disdains, and Los Angeles TV reporter Stevie finally tracks down her biological father only to land in the middle of one of Hollywood's greatest scandals. Though always the best of friends, Jay and Franny never pursued a romantic relationship for fear of ruining their friendship. Now Jay is married to Franny's former roommate, Vivienne. When she hears Franny's biological clock ticking, Vivienne surprises everyone by suggesting Jay act as Franny's sperm donor. Once again, Goudge excels at exploring the unconventional ways in which the...

Book Description

I love baking almost as much as I do writing. So what better way to bring the two together than this book of my favorite recipes?

Baking has often played a leading role in Eileen Goudge's best-selling novels. In Such Devoted Sisters, Annie becomes a chocolatier. In One Last Dance and Taste of Honey, Kitty sells her famous sticky buns at the Tea & Sympathy tearoom. The baked goods described so delectably in her novels inspired hundreds of fans to write to Eileen requesting the recipes, and the idea for Something Warm from the Oven was born.

Ever since she was a child, Eileen has been baking for family and friends. In her first cookbook, she presents a collection of 150 recipes for cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, puddings, breads, and more. Eileen believes that the...

There is something seductive about spinning out elaborate fantasies around the age-old question, "What if?" Glamorous new lies replace unsatisfying old ones, all problems magically find solutions, and the success that had been elusive falls easily into place. For best friends Jessie and Erin, the question gets asked--and answered--in earnest when Erin's husband leaves her and Jessie's new romance suddenly cools off. What if, asks Jessie, a freelance writer struggling to make it in Manhattan, I'd never left Arizona? What if, wonders Erin, an innkeeper still living in Willow Creek, I'd gone to New York and become a chef? When Jessie proposes they trade places for six months, their unconventional escape allows both women to find out if the proverbial grass really is greener. Creating strong, resourceful heroines is what...

Book Review
Doing what she does best, popular author Eileen Goudge has created the seemingly idyllic town of Carson Springs, along the golden coast of California near Santa Barbara. In Stranger in Paradise, the first novel in a new trilogy, the tranquil surface of Carson Springs unsuccessfully hides the murmurings of discontent; amid the gentle hum of the famous honeybee hives at the local convent, real problems exist. It's hard to believe that the wedding of Alice Kiley to her much older fiancé, Wes Carpenter, would presage the end of the comfortable existence of Alice's widowed mother, Sam, and her divorced older sister, Laura. But a dead car and a gatecrasher at the reception are only the beginning of the changes that will rock the Kiley family and the town of Carson Springs.

Sam catches a ride from the church back...

From Publishers Weekly
An uncanny prescience must have inspired the plot of Goudge's current novel, which seems ripped from recent headlines. The protagonist is Gerry Fitzgerald, a feisty, divorced woman with an intriguing past who played a supporting role in Stranger in Paradise, set in Carson Springs, Calif. Nearly 30 years ago, Gerry was about to take her vows as a nun, but literally fled the altar, pregnant by her parish priest. Now, divorced with two teenage children and an ongoing liaison with symphony conductor Aubrey Roellinger, Gerry is still involved with the church as a beekeeper at the local convent. A deep-seated sadness and curiosity lead her to search for the daughter she gave up for adoption. She and Claire connect, and their reunion is an emotional one. When Claire decides to confront her father, Goudge gingerly...
