HIS LONG-LOST FAMILY
HIS LONG-LOST FAMILY (4.5) by Brenda Harlen: Kelly Cooper’s come home with secrets — one from their unforgettable weekend 13 years ago that will turn Jackson Garrett’s life upside down. The news that he’s Ava’s dad sucker-punches Jack, and now he’s got another feeling to add to all the baser ones he’s been harboring for Kelly since they were teenage lovers. Is what they feel real, and can they become a true family, or is it too late? Harlen outshines herself with this page-turning return to bucolic Pinehurst. This couple’s got history, heat and many complications, and watching every puzzle piece fall into place is a joy. There’s a perfect mix of humor, jaw-dropping and intense drama and off-the-chart love scenes.
