Corey Hamilton, a frustrated school teacher, is worried about her student Miguel Winston. She sends notes to his father, Trevor Winston, seeking his involvement, but they all go unanswered.

Trevor is a filmmaker and always on the road. His sister is raising Miguel. When he comes home for a visit, he finds his sister at the end of her rope. Raising three children of her own, as well as Miguel, is tiring. So Trevor makes a commitment to stay and help raise the kids.

Getting off on the wrong foot, a mutual project brings Trevor and Corey closer together. Corey realizes there might be more to Trevor than she first thought.

LOVE LESSONS is a sweet and romantic story. The Jamaican dialect may cause confusion for some readers but will not detract from the overall enjoyment of the story. (Sep., 288 pp., $5.99)
