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.
** SPOILER ALERT **
get Maggie pregnant, after just going thru such an emotionally devastating miscarriage with the girl he just claimed to have loved with all his heart? I cannot ever respect or begin to like a man who would do that. He goes from hero status to "I can't stand you" status pretty fast in my book. The other problem I have with this guy - has he never heard of condoms? I mean, getting 2 girls he supposedly loves pregnant a few months apart - come on Dean, get with the program! Just one more piece of evidence stacked against him that shows his total lack of respect for women, and just how self-centered he is, as he obviously just assumes the woman will or should take care of birth control. . Furthermore, as soon as I read about Maggie, I figured out who the baby's mother was almost immediately and it made me so angry with Dean I couldn't finish the book and I absolutely couldn't stand the hero. Maybe its my age, (I'm 54) or the way I was raised, or my career (military officer and federal agent) but women can do better than that, think more of themselves. I was raised that way and we raised our 4 daughters the same way - to set higher moral standards for themselves and accept nothing less from those they date, and eventually marry, so there's no way Katie should take this guy back. She might be able to love the baby, as a baby is an innocent victim, but she better think long and hard and do some serious soul searching first because that baby will always be a constant reminder that Dean had said he loved her, then went and got engaged and created a baby with another woman right after Katie lost their baby, and at the same time Katie just learned she couldn't have children. He never really considered her emotional well being or the fact that maybe her rejection of him at that time might not have been a rational decision, but more one made due to the pain and hormones of losing a baby, aif if he'd been any kind of a man or hero at all, he would have stayed with her no matter what. He definitely wouldn't have run off and appeased his sexual appetite, declared love for another and gotten her pregnant as well. That's the biggest slap in Katie's face ever. I think Dean is total scum and I'd bet money he'd have an affair before the end of the first year of married life.
