Divorced and reclaiming her life, Genevieve Gibbs is not about to go back to being the submissive doormat she once was—or get involved with another man. Then widowered TC Barbour comes to town to spend time with his nephew and his two teenage daughters, and before long Genevieve is rethinking her decision. A town full of quirky, mostly lovable characters adds depth and interest to a touching story that blends humor and realism—and a pinch of the macabre—with exceptional skill. Once again, tiny Henry Adams, KS, springs to life in Jenkins's masterful hands.
VERDICT The author continues to build this engaging community in a sweet, wholesome, gentle read that offers a message of strength and redemption and will be welcomed by women's fiction and romance fans. Jenkins (Forbidden) lives in southeastern Michigan.
