Tired of being the sales rep for his father's firm, Edward finds the home office just as hazardous. Lumbered with finding a replacement for the firm's CFO, Edward suspects the best man for the job is a woman.

Toni Rovere can be easily overlooked -- until Edward finds that he could learn a thing or two about business from her.

How many adults listen when a child tells them what they need to do? Fortunately for Edward McCloud, when his niece, Nicole told him he needed to find someone special to fill his life, he listened to her. Although he didn’t precisely go looking for her it turned out to be more of a case of finding her when trying to fulfil another of Nicole’s demands.

Jane Bierce could have made Edward too good to be true, but the gentle caring man admits to having neglected his education and only doing just enough to get his grades. But he has natural attributes that means he didn’t get his place in the family business simply because of his heritage.

When the boss’s son asks Toni to make some extra clothes for his niece's special doll, she takes the request seriously and, as she does with all her projects, puts her heart and soul into it. It is not long before her heart follows a path of its own choosing and Toni finds herself facing several dilemmas. Some personal, some job-related and an additional ethical dimension that weaves its way through everything else.

Not satisfied with giving her hero and heroine plenty of obstacles to overcome, Jane Bierce adds some wonderful secondary characters. Whole, while fully rounded, they never usurp Edward and Toni.

That Someone Special is an easy and delightful read that you can pick up and put down between times, or finish in one sitting, when you feel in need of uplifting company.
