Architect Drew Kinard isn't looking for trouble, but it's found him in the form of Julia Stanton. She shows up on his doorstep, in labor, giving him a wild story about the mob. He knows she's hiding something, but he's compelled to help her and her newborn. Can their growing relationship survive the truth? The suspense plot doesn't deliver much suspense, and the sprawling cast of minor characters is distracting at times, but Drew's family is charming. Muriel Jensen grounds REINVENTING JULIA (3) in clever dialogue and keeps readers turning the pages with a likable couple.
