MISTLETOE AND MIRACLES
Widowed a year ago by a car accident, Laurel Greer is desperate to help her son, Cody, so she seeks out her old boyfriend, psychologist Trent Marlowe. Cody hasn't spoken since the crash, and Laurel hopes Trent can get through to him. Trent and Laurel have never forgotten what they shared, and the emotions they evoke in each other are complex, but they have to push them aside for Cody's sake. Marie Ferrarella continues Kate's Boys with Mistletoe and Miracles (3). Cody's problems tug at the emotions, as do some aspects of Laurel's history, but she's hard to like, and Trent's a bit too saintly.
