ONCE UPON A THANKSGIVING
Samantha is a recently divorced mother of four; Harry is the new interim principal at her kids' school. These two should steer clear of each other but instead tell everyone who will listen -- including each other -- that they are "just friends" as a cover for the emotional relationship they are actually having. But children and PTA members are rarely wrong, and the whole town knows the jig is up before Sami and Harry figure out that they really did find love Once Upon a Thanksgiving (4). Beyond delivering a compelling read, or the first in an inventive series about parenting, Holly Jacobs earns her kudos by seriously dealing with the difficulties of divorce on children and parents.
