Playing by Heart

By Deborah Raney


When young novelist Madeline Houser is offered the sanctuary of a charming bed-and-breakfast in which to write while her kitchen is suffering a remodeling, she gladly accepts. The owner of the inn, 40-year-old English professor Arthur Tyler, is not home during the day, but his lonely cat Alex is, so the situation is ideal for each of them. The arrangement has been coordinated by their spry octogenarian friend, Ginny Ross. Arthur and Madeline have never met, but a wonderful correspondence begins through the daily notes they leave each other. But because Art and Maddie each believe the other to be Ginny's elderly friend, finding love with each other is the furthest thing from their minds.
