A couple of things bothered me. It is fraternal twins which run in families, not identical twins, and certainly not on the father's side. Just a small detail, but annoying.
At the start of the book, Lee Ann seems to say that Reba was not a particularly good mother and yet we see her as a good grandmother, helping out and generally supporting the girls. I can't imagine how a mother like Reba and a sister like Lee Ann could have Stephanie, and either I didn't hear it, (I listened in audio version) or there was not much explanation on who Stephanie's father was or what happened to him, as she was Lee Ann's half-sister. I felt as if there was something missing in the story. Either the part about Reba not being a good mother should have been edited out, or it should have been explained.
I really felt that too much time was spent going over and over the same discussions and too much time either in Lee Ann or Cody's heads. It is a shame, because I liked the family set-up, the depiction of the two girls and life in the town when they were not spying on each other.
Suddenly Cody Dalton, the twins' father, is back in Sugar Springs.
Cody had been Lee Ann's high school sweetheart. She came home one afternoon to find Cody and her sister making out mostly naked on the couch. When she saw them, Stephanie laughed at her, Lee Ann ran to her room - and Cody broke windows, tore down the town's statue in the square, and left town. There hasn't been a single word or any kind of support from Cody as Lee Ann raised the girls as her own. She has also nurtured her hatred of her ex-boyfriend for thirteen years; she doesn't want anything to do with him. But he is the girls' father - they are his children too.
Sugar Springs is a small town. Cody quickly learns that Lee Ann has twin daughters. While Lee Ann makes an effort to keep out of his way, Cody seeks her out. They both realize that they still react to each other, but Lee Ann is fighting her attraction and Cody has no idea about being a father - but he wants to try.
This story of how they try to deal with each other at arm's length while both distrust each other keeps the reader involved. You want to know how they work out their problems - this is a romance, after all - you know they will. But Ms Law throws enough obstacles in their path to stymie almost any romance.
How will they work it out?
Believing Cody knew all about the girls and refused to step up as their father, Lee Ann isn't about to just let him into their lives until he proves himself. She also isn't willing to just forgive and forget that he slept with her sister when he was supposedly in love with her. Of course, Cody finds out the truth before Lee Ann has a chance to tell him, and they all suffer some angst. I'm not a fan of stories wherein the conflict could be solved in a single conversation if the characters would just TALK to each other, but the whole secret baby situation wasn't dragged out as long as I feared it would be and the story actually moved past it rather quickly. Instead, it deals with Cody getting to know his girls and having a few stumbles as a father, while he and Lee Ann work at getting over his mistakes in the past. The book does have a few issues with timing, and there are some important conversations that Lee Ann and Cody put off for flimsy reasons that made it obvious the author was just trying to string the reader along...which became too long. Ditto on the sex scene, which didn't quite fit with the personalities of the characters and felt as if it was pulled from a pile of stock sex scenes somewhere.Read more ›
Lee Ann was a little over-dramatic as she processed how her life would change with Cody's return, but maybe I wasn't sympathetic enough. I know I didn't quite expect the true story about her step sister and Cody. All in all, I liked the book and will return to Sugar Springs as soon as another Kim Law book surfaces on my radar.
