A CHILD CHANGES EVERYTHING (3) by Stella MacLean: When Lisa Clarke learns her biological mother is alive, she hires her ex-boyfriend, Mason Stephens, to find her. Mason is successful, and Lisa travels to meet her mother and learns she has a half-sister who’s been arrested for drug trafficking. Determined to prove her sister innocent, Lisa hires an attorney and takes her niece back home with her and her mother until the case is resolved. Characterization is a bit weak in this story. While the plot is interesting and Lisa grows as a character, Mason comes across as wishy-washy. He’s sorry he walked out on Lisa years earlier, but then he almost runs away when she tries to resolve the issue.

A Child Changes Everything /Suddenly A Parent/

Submitted by mlacroix on July 10, 2010 - 5:55pm.

Lisa Clarke has just found out her whole life has been a lie. Her adopted mother had just passed away when her attorney tells her that her birth mother, who she thought was dead, was alive. Running down to Florida Lisa and her P.I. Mason Stephens, who was her ex, discover Lisa's mother in a nursing home and she learns the circumstances of her adoption and finds out she has a sister and a niece, a niece who needs her. Mason ended their relationship five years before, because Lisa didn't want children and he wanted a whole house full. But with her sister in jail, Lisa takes her niece and her mother home to North Carolina with her. Lisa discovers that she actually likes children and isn't scared of them anymore. Mason realizes that he was wrong about Lisa, but now his own life is on hold, because his ex wife wants to go to LA and take their son with her. Mason is torn about staying with Lisa and going to LA to stay close with his son.

I have to be honest I didn't care for this book. I found myself not becoming emotionally invested with the characters.
