Beautiful, rich Katelyn Morrison has a lot going for her-she's beautiful, she's rich, she loyal, and she has love to spare, so when a tiny baby shows up on her doorstep, you know this story is going to be full of lies, deceptions and secrets.
Bybee adds another layer to the story, that I won't give away, but I enjoyed it very much.
Ok, onto our male lead-Dean Prescott. Big, Strapping, rich and yummy (as he is called by a secondary character) is in love with Katie, and has been for years.
Katie, naturally, is hesitant to share her secret with Dean. She fell in love with the tiny baby in mere seconds, as mothers often do, and is moving the earth to find out where baby Savannah came from, who her mother is and will she be able to legally keep her.
Bybee glosses over a lot of the legalities and focuses on Katie's growing love for the little girl left to her, and then her relationship with Dean. And that's ok, this is a romance! If too much detail and attention had been given over to the legal aspects of abandonment this would have easily switched from a romance novel to a drama, so in this case it works.
Lots of focus here on what makes a family, are we destined to repeat our parents mistakes, and learning to love again.
The cliche's are there, but I didn't care...I just had fun rooting for Katie, Dean and Savannah.
Great, light read for Spring.
Katie was "secretly" dating Dean, became pregnant, had a miscarriage, and learned she would not be able to carry a pregnancy in the future. She "assumes" that Dean will want his own biological children, so she breaks up with him and does not tell him why - another "secret."
Later, a mother abandons her baby girl, giving the baby to Katie with a legal document. Katie does not know who the mother is (a secret). Katie wants to keep the baby, but insists on keeping this secret from her brother and her dad. Her reason is "If Jack finds out about the baby, my dad will get involved. My dad thinks I'm irresponsible. I don't want to confirm that to him. I don't want to disappoint him." Well, she's being responsible. That didn't make sense. She also fears her father would do stupid things and get the press involved. That didn't fit.
Katie wants to keep the baby "secret" from Dean for a couple reasons. 1. Dean might think Katie is bad by keeping the baby away from the birth mother. 2. If Dean were in her life, and the mother showed up to take the baby away, Dean might abandon Katie. Uhhhh.... what?
There are more secrets. I just did not enjoy them. Secrets can make a good story, but I want them reasonable, rational, believable.
On the positive side: The subject matter might appeal to some - an abandoned baby given to an infertile woman who loves the baby and is a wonderful mother. And there's a happy romantic ending.
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 323 pages. Swearing language: strong including religious swear words, but rarely used.Read more ›
