Today's Free Fridays book selection, Jayne Denker's By Design, is a playful, sexy romance about finding true love, and finding yourself along the way.
Emmie Brewster is an interior designer who is frustrated with a demeaning boss, an emotionally unavailable boyfriend, and a widowed father who has a more active dating life than she does. Nothing seems to go right...until she meets Graham Cooper, a handsome new client who makes it very hard for Emmie to do her job.
But Graham is already involved with someone else, a confident, successful woman whom Emmie only dreams of becoming. With Graham's support, can Emmie finally break the cycle, and jumpstart her career and her love life?

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Jayne recommends:
It’s no mean feat to mix the elements of humor, drama, mystery, whimsy, romance, and pathos in a work of women’s fiction and have the balance come out right. But Cathy Lamb has accomplished it in her newest novel, If You Could See What I See. Protagonist Meggie O’Rourke, a documentary filmmaker, returns to her hometown of Portland and the family lingerie business, Lace, Satin, and Baubles. Her grandmother, who founded the company, makes Meggie CEO—a job she doesn’t want. The business is in trouble, and Meggie only has a matter of months to turn it around. In the meantime she has to deal with a full slate of eccentric family members, a super-hot police chief neighbor, and her own dark past.
I love books that make me laugh one minute and tear up the next, and this book does that in every chapter. There was just enough mystery—and even a touch of horror—to keep me turning the pages. Every character, from Meggie all the way down to the numerous employees at the factory, was three-dimensional, and their detailed stories were believable and touching. I’m going to head straight to Cathy Lamb’s back catalog to read more of her books right away.
