PAPER MOON

Author(s): 
Lighthearted Caroline Spencer approaches life with childlike faith. Workaholic Blaine Madison is suspicious of everyone—especially God. Caroline and Blaine should repel each other, yet they battle an attraction from the start.

As single parents, it's challenge enough to chaperone a group of teenagers, including their daughters, on a mission trip to Mexico. Neither of them counted on major complications—like an orphan boy capturing their hearts, danger from a smuggling ring and, worst of all, falling in love. When kidnappers strike, will faith win over fear and love over anger? Or will their perfect paper moon crumble away?

Windsor always skillfully balances humor with adventure and does a superb job with the south-of-the-border setting. The romance is lovely, but the action sputters at times. (Jan., 224 pp., $13.99)
