|Kelly Baron and her daughter, CB, had lived with her aunt until her death and CB (Colleen's) marriage. Kelly found out she was pregnant her senior year of high school. She never admitted to anyone who the father was. Her parents wanted her to get an abortion and she refused. She moved from her small hometown and only went back once—for her father's funeral. Now her mother insisted she return home to help her pack up her belongings. Her mother was getting married—to the grandfather of CB. No one in the world knew it except Kelly.
Rob Scott left his hometown for college and, when his marriage became rocky, he moved her back to Lanham, Indiana. She had an affair and divorced him. Rob, a lawyer, stayed and made his life there. He was lonely until Kelly returned to town for their parents' wedding. The fact was, Kelly didn't know that was why her mother tricked her into coming back. This could really cause problems, especially since Rob, CG, her mom, his father, and she would all become part of the same family.
Jan has done it again! She has written another best seller which promises to quickly rise to the top of the charts. Her fascinating plot kept me involved in the book. I constantly wanted to see what would happen next. The poignant storyline was so well developed, I was spellbound. The myriad supporting cast members were so incredibly believable. I fell for all of them.
The two main characters were so emotionally connected it was impossible NOT to believe in a happily-ever-after. I will admit, however, that the ending was handled in such an amazing way that I was both surprised and thrilled. Ms. Scarbrough has become one of my favourite authors. I am automatically drawn to anything with her name on it.
Ms. Scarbrough has a way of involving sensuality without going in-depth so that younger readers cannot enjoy the book. While the sexuality was evident, the entire book was mildly sensual. It did not lose its spunk.
I highly recommend this book to anyone. I promise you will love this book as well as this author.
