Devastated by a breakup, Shana Berrie leaves her job, relocates and buys a combination pizza/ice cream parlor. Then her sister, a Navy nurse, is unexpectedly deployed at sea for six months and there's no one to care for her 9-year-old daughter, Jazmine—except Shana, who is unprepared and overwhelmed. When Jazmine's godfather, Lt. Cmdr. Adam Kennedy, enters the picture, Shana should be too busy to notice—but she isn't! Shana's not looking for a Navy Husband (4), but it turns out that Adam's a persuasive guy. Debbie Macomber delivers her usual high-quality read, placing interesting characters in an emotionally volatile situation that has particular resonance in these times.
