    Clare Cosi used to manage the historic Village Blend coffeehouse…until she opted for quieter pastures and a more suburban life. But after ten years and a little friendly cajoling from the owner (a fresh pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain was all it took), she's back to the grind. With a sprawling rent-free apartment directly above the Village Blend, her cat Java by her side, and plenty of coffeehouse redecorating ideas, Clare is thrilled to return to work. Until she discovers the assistant manager unconscious in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere.

    Since being diagnosed with Panic Disorder, Jade DeLuna is trying her best to stay calm, and visiting the elephants at the nearby zoo seems to help. That’s why Jade keeps the live zoo webcam on in her room, which is where she first sees Sebastian.

    If you could sum up The Nature of Jade in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, easy, different....


    What other book might you compare The Nature of Jade to and why?

    Not sure, it was different than most I have read. I very much related to Jade, although I am much older than her. It was interesting to see how she handled her anxiety.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is my favorite narrator. I actually bought the book because I like her voice and intonation!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just made me smile....

    Savannah “Van” Leone has loved Peter since the day they met. The problem is, Peter has loved Van’s best friend, Janie, since the moment they met. And now they’re walking down the aisle, with Van standing nearby in a Halloween-orange bridesmaid dress, her smile as hollow as one on a jack-o’-lantern. After the wedding Van drowns her sorrows in Kool-Aid-vodka cocktails and reruns of Rin Tin Tin, and does what any woman in her situation would do: She buys a German Shepherd over the Internet.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stay?

    The poop, the vomit, the vet...


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Everything!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Woman's best friend!


    Any additional comments?

    All around fun, yet touching book. I didn't want it to end!
