KIRKUS REVIEW

Start with an empty nest and feather it with all kinds of Ladies' Home Journalese--she's an attractive woman with two nubile daughters and a high-powered advertising job (vice-president at Benton & Bowles) as well as a longterm divorcee. While coping with older daughter Susan who has an Army husband and they both move in on her with a brand new baby, and with younger daughter Dina (away at school), she meets Cle, an art director, also divorced more recently with four. In between flying trips to Hollywood for the Rinsit commercials (she writes--he art directs) and her covert fears that ""gorgeous"" model Beverly Brady has appropriated Cle, and a little stardust (Henry Fonda--Loretta Young, etc.)--there's the appropriate ending in a flurry of orange blossoms and soap flakes.
