A MOTHER IN A MILLION
When architect Noah Brannigan and his three kids move in next door, child-care provider Jennifer March wonders where his wife can be. That's the question on everyone else's mind too. Belinda Brannigan has been missing for three years, and her family is in limbo. Though aware that he's still married, Jennifer falls in love with Noah and the children. Noah's understandably cautious, particularly when it becomes clear that Jennifer's dealing with some demons of her own. Melissa James' A Mother in a Million (4) tackles a difficult scenario with great sensitivity. The characters are also handled well, and there's plenty of chemistry between them.
