IN CARE OF SAM BEAUDRY
IN CARE OF SAM BEAUDRY (3) by Kathleen Eagle: The unexpected appearance of his ex-girlfriend, Merilee, and her daughter, Star, shocks Sheriff Sam Beaudry. Seeing his ex takes him back to a time in his life that he'd sooner forget, and the question of Star's paternity complicates his slow-burning romance with nurse Maggie Whiteside. A single mom, Maggie intends to keep her life as simple as possible -- and the situation Sam's in is anything but clear-cut. Nicely detailed characters and a wholly plausible conflict engage on several levels, but the plot overpowers the romance almost from the first page.
