A FATHER IN THE MAKING

Author(s): 
After finding a letter from his dead brother's pregnant sweetheart, economist Ryan Gasper goes to the Outback to meet her -- and the child. Caterer Laura Somervale and her daughter, Chloe, have a good life, so Laura's not happy when Ryan rents the property next door. She warms up eventually, but Laura's fear that the Gaspers may try to gain custody of Chloe makes accepting her growing feelings for Ryan difficult. Ally Blake's A Father in the Making (4) centers around a realistic conflict, but the playful aspects of delightfully eccentric Laura's developing relationship with Ryan are what shine.
