FINAL DECISION: This is a sweet story but fairly forgettable. I read it once and thought it was fine, but I didn’t see anything special about the story or the characters.
THE STORY: Faulkner Scott’s twelve year old son wants a mom and has set his eyes on Shelly Aster. Although Faulkner believes Shelly is too young, too poor and too inexperienced for him, he can’t seem to stop spending time with her. As both Faulker and his son fall for Shelly, she has secrets of her own which might make her perfect match for them both.
OPINION: This is a straightforward and sweet story. For a story like this, to be a really good story, I think that there have to be memorable characters. For me, the story was nice, light and easy to read and enjoy, but there was nothing special about it or its characters. I like Diana Palmer’s books, but this story isn’t one of the best. Nice one time read but nothing about it was lasting for me.
WORTH MENTIONING: This novella was originally published in 1993.
CONNECTED BOOKS: CALAMITY MOM is a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 2.5 stars.
