Reading Series June 28th, 2006: FIXING EMMA by Heidi Hornbacher

You are cordially invited to a reading of
by Heidi Hornbacher

Emma, a creative blacksheep, wants to matter to her family’s restaurant business but she seems to mess up every chance she gets. With the family’s “magic ingredient” olive oil almost gone and the Italian producer mysteriously refusing to sell them more, Emma’s stressed out sister, Caitlin, bans her from the restaurant. The only way Emma won’t be branded a loser forever is to race to Italy to get the oil and prove herself to her family, winning the heart of an impossible Italian along the way. There’s only one problem: Emma doesn’t know the first thing about olive oil…or love.

French Kiss meets In Her Shoes, Fixing Emma is a story about finding your strengths, facing your fears and building family.
