NOT ANOTHER BAD DATE

Author(s): 

Gibson delivers another fun, steamy romance featuring the last of the
love-seeking Idaho lady novelists.
The story is rife with sexual tension, sharp dialogue and a collection of humorous characters. A slight paranormal element adds a creative touch to an already compelling tale.

Sci-fi/fantasy author Adele Harris is pulled away from her comfortable Boise life to help her pregnant sister in their Texas hometown. While her sister's in the hospital, Adele must care for her 13-year-old niece. To her shock, she discovers her niece's best friend is the daughter of Adele's now-widowed college flame, a man who broke her heart 14 years ago.

Pro football player turned high school coach Zach Zemaitis is trying to be a good dad and deal with a fishbowl life in his dead wife's stomping grounds. And stomp she did. The woman was not only nasty during their marriage, she broke up his relationship with Adele. Little does Zach know his daughter's mother is paying the price in her afterlife. She's been sentenced to find a way to bring him and Adele back together. (AVON, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)
