THE PARENT TRAP

Author(s): 
Though suspicious of her motives, restaurant owner Jill Lindstrom allows her daughter Zoe to invite Brandon Clark and his daughter, Kristy, for dinner. When the Clarks arrive, it's clear that the girls are matchmaking ... Brandon's an attractive widower. Unfortunately, he also owns a new steakhouse threatening Jill's business and he's not completely over his wife's death. Rancorously divorced, Jill understands Brandon's pain; she's even less ready to love again. But Zoe and Kristy are relentless ... and resisting Brandon is difficult to begin with! Lissa Manley's The Parent Trap (4) has a well-used premise, but rings with emotional truth -- and Jill is easy to relate to.
