Clare (clarereads) | 27 comments Okay,
All I remember about the book is that this woman started dating this man (amybe from work?), and he sent her a crate of perfect peaches as a gesture, and she was touched. Then he tried to move along the relationship, and got stalker-ish. Then more peaches arrived, but they were all rotted and full of worms. When she complained to the police, they said that not all produce can be reliable, esp thru mail order.

Suggestions?

Author male or female?

Clare, can you tell us more about the heroine and stalker - jobs, family/friends, appearances, personalities, etc.?

Is there a hero in the story?

What's the tone - mostly romantic suspense?

Clare (clarereads) | 27 comments IIRC, the woman is coming out of a bad relationship (or parental death) and meets the new guy. He charms her. Then she backs off and he starts menacing her. Changing meeting times with clients, making people believe she's unstable. When she finally goes to the police, they don't believe her either. I forget how it's resolved - which is why I want to find it again.

I would categorize this as modern romantic fiction/ suspense.
