GOOD HUSBAND MATERIAL
Natalie Briggs has moved on since her marriage to her high school sweetheart, Josh Carlson, fell apart 20 years ago. But things heat up between them when they meet unexpectedly at their high school reunion. What starts out as one night to remember becomes a whole lot more when Natalie realizes that she's pregnant. The couple has to work to blend their lifestyles -- and teenage children -- in order to make room for the baby. Good Husband Material (2), by Kara Lennox, is an adventure in making a future when a couple has a past. It's sweet, but poor character development, especially the unrealistic teenagers, makes it fall flat at moments when it could resonate with readers.
