Nina Carpenter wants to have a baby, but hubby Tony Williams thinks his jazz club does not yet offer the financial security they need. When Nina tries to get Tony to go with her to a fertility clinic, he rejects this plan based on their unstable finances.

Tony works nights, Nina days, and it has been four months since they have slept together. Both turn to their parents to talk and try to find a way to reason out their differences. When things start looking up for them, disaster strikes and Tony is faced with legal complications, a brother whos been shot, dishonest employees, and a wife who once again isnt sure she can trust him.

For a story that starts out a little slow, LOVE NOTES makes up for it as the story progresses. (Feb., 288 pp., $5.99)
