Diana Lambert arrived home from a business trip to discover that her husband, Derek and her assistant, Melinda, had not only been having an affair, but Melinda was now pregnant and had moved into their house. To make matters worse, Diana and Derek shared a business, Diana’s Delights, a candy and baked sweets company based on Diana’s family recipes.
Ben Riker is an accountant who is helping Diana to sort out the finances of her marriage and business that she knew nothing about. Ben is enthralled by Diana from the very beginning and lets her know that he is very interested in her, but will give her the time and space that she needs to get over her marriage.
Not only did Derek cheat on Diana and throw her out of her home, but he has also taken control of the business and is making changes that throw Diana for a loop. With the help of her sister, Ben, and her good friends, not to mention a fierce lawyer, Diana is able to start putting the pieces of her life back together. Derek is determined to ruin her but she makes the best of it by turning around and becoming successful and finding true love.
Goddess Goodies is one heavenly read. Mardi Ballou has created a fantastic modern story that is very character driven. The reader can really feel the pain of what Diana is going through. The terrible things that her husband does to hurt her are one surprise after another. You find yourself hoping that she can find happiness and get revenge. This is one reviewer that can highly recommend this delicious novel.
