Teresa Mandrell's first encounter with advertising executive Rayann Germaine begins badly and goes downhill from there. Within minutes of their meeting, Rayann dubs Teresa a "bumbling amateur." The event changes the course of Teresa's life - she abandons the corporate world for what she hopes is a more satisfying career in Fine Arts Management.
When budget cuts leave her without work, Teresa lands a job as a design artist in another firm, only to discover that the new department head is... Rayann! But the difference in the woman's demeanor is so startling that Teresa can't believe her eyes. Although the woman she'd fought with had been insensitive and rude, there had been fire and passion too. This Rayann is cold and withdrawn.
To Teresa's chagrin, the woman doesn't even remember their fight. In fact, the two fall easily into an increasingly harmonious work relationship. As they grow even closer, Teresa slowly uncovers layer after layer of Rayann's hurt and pain. When she at last arrives at the terrible truth, Teresa is left with one burning question: How can she turn Rayann's heart away from grief and lead her back toward life and love?

- All About Watermark
Fans of this book won't want to miss the follow-up short story "The Tapestry" in Frosting on the Cake 1: The Original.
- Watermark is the sequel to Touchwood, and was written nine years later. The author humbly suggests that readers allow a lapse of time between the two novels, though perhaps not quite that long.
