HAVING THE BEST MAN'S BABY
For 15 years, Jean Summerfield has carried around the humiliation that Ry Collier caused her in high school. For those same 15 years, Ry has been plagued by guilt over standing Jean up for the prom. Both come from troubled childhoods, though neither realized it when they were friends. Now they find themselves thrown together in the wedding festivities of mutual friends. Shawna Delacorte's HAVING THE BEST MAN'S BABY (3) is a promising story but doesn't reach its full potential. The author introduces a lot of back story, but never develops any conflict from it.
