Publisher's Summary

Natalie and Francois are the perfect couple, and perfectly happy. But after Francois dies suddenly only seven years into their still blissful marriage, the widowed Natalie erects a fortress around her emotions into which no one can gain access. Until the most unlikely candidate appears: Markus, Natalie's Swedish, geeky, and unassuming coworker.

Delicacy has only two problems

The writing and the story. Both are juvenile. And if I had heard the autbor say one more time how beautiful Natalie was, I would have thrown up.
