Jenny Harris is nesting in her Houston home with her fiance, Dean, awaiting the birth of their child, to be followed by their wedding. But Dean grows more distant, especially after a coworker dies in a plane crash, and Jenny ends up becoming a single mother. Determined to take good care of her child, she tries to forget about Dean, relegating him to the past. Coping with a baby takes all Jenny's time, so when her perfect single neighbor takes an interest, Jenny is flattered but exhausted. Then, when she finally decides to take a chance and get to know him, Dean comes back into her life.
Center writes realistically about parenting which is why I keep coming back to her books. Her characters are flawed and their stories are never perfect. I happily look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
Next up is "Anything But Typical" by Nora Raleigh Baskin ... a young adult novel told from the perspective of a boy with Autism.
