THE FAMILY SOLUTION
After Bella Jane Monroe's husband leaves her in debt with a failing hardware store, new realtor Charlie Fredricks helps her close up shop and get her home in shape for a quick sale. Dealing with his own problems, Charlie still finds time to help Bella, and the two soon form a relationship. In The Family Solution (4), Bobby Hutchinson combines clever characters with an emotionally fraught plot. A backstory in the form of Bella's father reappearing after years away only serves to make the book more enjoyable.
