Jenny Eglington is determined to keep her family’s home and raise her sister’s orphaned son. She is working brutal hours and has neglected her painting to reach this goal.
Roland LaPierre has gone from being a truck driver to the owner of a multi-million dollar transport company. He wants to see what happened to the little sister of the woman he almost married.
Jenny promised her sister Helen that she would raise little Danny as her own and that she would never tell the boy’s father Roland about his son. Now Roland’s corporation has rented her family home and Danny looks so much like him it will be impossible to keep Helen’s secret.
This is a very engaging contemporary romance and I enjoyed it very much. Roland and Jenny are not perfect characters; Jenny is a little snobbish and Roland is oversensitive about his origins. He led Jenny on when she was a teenager and then dumped her for her sister; not the actions of a nice guy, especially since their brother was his friend, but he paid for it in the end. The rekindled romance between the two is a bit rocky, especially when Roland discovers that Danny is his son. The subplots of Jenny’s rekindled art career, her boss’ romance with her best friend, and her brother’s disgrace all blend together to add depth to the story. The author does a great job of describing the setting, even though I have never been to Grosse Pointe, I had no trouble picturing the area. The author also has created some very memorable characters aside from the two main ones.
