A hard-driving businessman sees love with new eyes when a sweet young widow and her son change his life -- and his heart -- forever. Wealthy corporate genius Jason Wilding reluctantly takes a break from his high-powered world to visit his home town of Abernathy, Kentucky.
As a favor to his physician brother David, he finds himself spending one week as a live-in baby-sitter in the ramshackle home of Amy Thompkins, who has captured David's heart. Courting the whimsical, artistic Amy has been difficult with her adorable but demanding baby, Max, in tow, and Jason's help is just what David needs. But stepping into Amy's patched-together world has the most remarkable effect -- on "Jason...."
Amy's joy for life, her love for her son, and her sparkling humour are irresistible -- and tiny Max adores Jason beyond reason. Soon, the enigmatic CEO is thawing. And his newfound smile reminds Amy of a Mount Rushmore monument finally cracking up -- in the best possible way. Their mutual attraction is glowing bright, but what to do about David? In this heart-warming and unforgettable bestseller, Jude Deveraux celebrates the unexpected paths on the heart's journey toward love, and the eternal bond between mother and child.
A typical love story with a slight twist, I could predict the ending, it was obvious to see who would fall in love and the length they would go to hide those feelings. There is always someone who gets hurt, man meets woman, there are heaps of lies and cover ups and about half way through the liar has to try and decide when it would be a good time to tell the truth and hope like hell that the person would understand.
I am surprised that someone who grew up in the same town wouldn't know of Jason's reputation.
As usual when the truth gets told, it gets ugly but after a while it all gets sorted. Hurt feelings and lies to cover the hurt, try and pretend that life is good but having to keep the lie going. The truth always comes out. Typical romance novel the lies are forgotten about and they live happily ever after, it does seem that there is a formula that the authors follow.
Characters are well written, some are bossy, some need guidance and most have something to make up for and to prove themselves.
Luckily I enjoy reading Jude Deveraux books, it is easy to read in a few hours, usually easy to predict the ending and the subject is never serious. A good way to relax and pass a few hours.
