MOMMY FOR A MINUTE
Single father and carpenter Jack Mason reluctantly takes on tough lawyer Lauren McNabb as a client. This wouldn't be such a problem if he didn't have to take his daughter, Ally, with him to work. Despite his vow not to take any help from Lauren, he ends up doing just that. As she takes care of Ally, he starts to see her in a different light. Lauren loves children and has no idea why Jack is so opposed to her helping him. But Ally is too precious to ignore and one way or another Lauren is going to prove to Jack that she's not as bad as he thinks she is. Mommy for a Minute (2), by Judy Christenberry, could have been a very nice book if Jack weren't such a harsh man. His dislike of Lauren is confusing in the beginning and this makes him a difficult hero to like.
