From the back of the book:

CALAMITY MOM by Diana Palmer - A mom for all calamities . . . that was what Faulkner Scott's young son wanted. And the motherless twelve-year-old was determined to appoint Shelly Astor to the post. Now all he had to do was convince his dad that she was the one!

TABLOID BABY by Candace Camp - Jackson Prescott has managed to get pregnant stranger Beth Sutton to the hospital -- just in the nick of time. Now the tabloids are all atwitter with the story of his secret love child!

A DADDY FOR HER DAUGHTERS by Elizabeth Bevarly - Bachelor Sloan Sullivan thought he was an expert on women. But when confronted with queen of sass Naomi Carmichael and her brood of girls, he realized he had a lot to learn!

I am a huge fan of Candace Camp and just starting to be one for Diana Palmer, but Elizabeth Bevarly was a new one to me. I loved the Camp and Bevarly stories the best because they seemed more genuine and believeable. I found myself involved in both stories before I knew it. I liked "Calamity Mom" but not the male character, Faulkner, so much. He was too bossy and self-centered for my taste. The main female character, Shelly, was very likeable and so was Faulkner's son, Ben. He was a hoot! This is a good, easy read for a relaxing day.

This is a wonderful book..and something every mom and woman can relate to. All the stories were detailed and you can picture the story as if you were watching it in a movie theater...but this one author had a way of writing that can be compared to fingernails on a chalboard. To be fair to her I have never read any of her other stories or books...so maybe she does not write this way habitually...she can't possibly be doing that...because I see she is quite popular..but in this book Elizabth Beveraly's writing style can be compared to the style of a children's writer...ie..the author who wrote the If You give a Mouse a Cookie" series. She repeats herself over and over expressing the exact same thing paragraph after paragraph, uses the same words, to the point I was cringing through the whole story..simply because her writing style was so childlike as the narrator for her characters. Overall the book is an easy beach read...but that last story by the above mentioned author can really grate on your nerves unless you are prepared to read it as if you were reading "If you give a Mouse a Pancake" to your child...because that is the writing style this famous author chose. Hives aside...the stories are very fun, light and sweet...an enjoyable read....the first two stories would make great Lifetime Television movies..and so would the last story if you eliminate the repetitive narrartion style.
