BENDING THE RULES
BENDING THE RULES (4) by Margaret Watson: After her best friend Sonya dies, Sonya’s teenage daughter, Harley, comes to live with social worker Emma Sloan. Emma soon learns that restaurant owner Nathan Devereux, a man she’s only recently met and is attracted to, is the young girl’s father. Shocked to learn he has a child he never knew about, Nathan is determined to get to know Harley — and Emma, too. An intriguing secondary plot involving some danger to Nathan and his family because of the death of their parents years before adds a nice element of tension to the plot in this well-written novel.
