"Jan's Excellent Romance: Applesauce and Andy" is about Jan Duffy, a woman nearing 30 whose husband ran off with the neighbor’s wife (leaving Jan with car payments and no car – and no husband). When she opens a café, she finds herself getting involved in the love lives of her customers, friends, and family while struggling to get her own life in order, to forgive her runaway husband, and (maybe, maybe, maybe) to be able to fall in love again. Along the way, she finds romance, passion, and laughs.
Hi, I’m Jan Duffy. When I was 26, my husband ran off with the woman next door, leaving me with car payments and no car. No husband either, obviously. First customer in the door was Andy Hudson, a successful lawyer and hands down the best looking guy on Long Island. Lucky me, right? Not really. I have a God-given talent for taking a good thing and really messing it up. I’m good at fixing up other people’s lives, though—at least I always thought so. But I had not yet met the parade of zanies that started coming to the café. The lovelorn, the ditzes, the screw-ups—and I mean not just my customers but my friends and my own relatives. So I’m trying to figure out my own life while meddling in everyone else’s. Welcome to my café. Welcome to my life!
