When businessman Adam Benton inherits custody of his infant cousin, Jessie, he's uncertain of his parenting skills. So he returns to his hometown to decide how to proceed. While there, Adam rents a cottage from jewelry artist Lee Singer, an old friend. Unexpectedly, their relationship becomes more. But even if he didn't have Jessie to consider, Adam's life is in the city and Lee is firmly rooted right where she is. Moreover, she's content ... until Adam moves on. Holly Jacobs' Here With Me (4) is sweetly humorous, and the characters have interesting flaws and edges. Best of all, Jessie's not just a plot device, as babies sometimes are.
