Hope Walker survived early breast cancer at just thirty-years-old, but a mastectomy left her with a lot of scarring—and some serious fears about dating. Hope owns Changing Seasons, Heart Lake's most popular flower shop. When it comes to love and relationships, she's able to work magic through her expert flower arranging...for everyone but herself. Then one day a handsome contractor starts coming into her shop, but Hope knows he'd rather have a whole woman than someone like her. When Hope stakes a plot of ground at Heart Lake's community garden, she finds that a woman can grow all sorts of things there: flowers, herbs, vegetables and even friendship. As she gets to know the two women who share neighboring plots, they discover that they can learn a lot from each other—not just about gardening, but about life. And Hope realizes that in order to live life to the fullest, sometimes you have to take a chance on love.

In THE CHRISTMAS STRIKE, Zimmermann presents the premise of a United States in deep crisis, resulting from sharply divided opinions about overseas military intervention versus domestic economic disintegration. The story moves tautly within the time frame of a few weeks from the initial explosive opening in Sao Tom, West Africa, to the final denouement above the skies of Omaha, Nebraska. The chief protagonist, a powerful Senator from California, openly challenges the President's clandestine military operations, threatening a crippling national labor walkout. The Senators legislative analyst must choose between loyalty to his boss, his country, and the woman who shares his life.Against this backdrop, a young, sophisticated and determined female terrorist in Vienna sets into motion what could be the deadliest attack yet against America.The key question addressed by the fast-moving novel: can the U.S. survive domestic political and economic turmoil, engage in overseas military actions, and simultaneously anticipate and prevent a terrorist attack so carefully and quietly planned as to escape the vast American intelligence machinery?
