IT TAKES A FAMILY
Cleaning up her late sister Lea's messes is nothing new for Karis Pratt, but telling Lea's ex-husband, cop Luke Walker, that she's dead -- and that he may be a father -- is a daunting task. So is informing her half-siblings about their father's will. But Karis perseveres and earns Luke's respect. The pull between them is strong, but can they overcome the past? Victoria Pade continues Northbridge Nuptials with It Takes a Family (3). The book opens dramatically with a strong conflict, but though Luke and Karis are likable, the spark between them is mild at best.
