LOVING SPOONFUL (4) by Candice Poarch: Jack Canter has a deep-seated fear about not being able to care for his family. His stepfather went through his father's inheritance within a year. His wife Kimberly is starting to resent the time he spends away from the family and with his assistant. Since their children are older, she's spending more time at the TV station where she's the morning weather forecaster. When Kimberly asks him to leave the family home, he's shocked but starts to realize how important his family is. Then tragedy strikes when Jack is not around, and he pledges to rebuild his marriage and protect his family with his presence instead of just with money. The satisfying ending to this enjoyable story emphasizes, without preaching, the importance of communication in relationships.
