DINNER FIRST, ME LATER?
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Halliday's second installment in her Housewives Fantasy Club series is fun but also serious. There is humor, but the hero's battle to make a home for his daughter is presented with diligence and care. The daughter is exceptionally likable, and characters from the previous book play a large role.
Having just recovered from a painful divorce, Alicia focuses on making her business successful. But when she discovers Jake, the man she's had fantasies about since she was a teenager, living across the street, things change.
With Alicia's friends determined to match them up and Jake's daughter and her dog taking a liking to her, Alicia finds business taking a backseat. Too bad Jake, a retired baseball player, has a reputation as an irresponsible playboy. Now that his ex-wife has died, he wants custody of his daughter. Getting involved with a beautiful woman is out of the question. (Warner FOREVER, Jun., 352 pp., $6.99)
