The discovery that their young son has a congenital heart defect requiring immediate surgery shocks social worker Laurel Reiss and her construction foreman husband, Jackson. The stress of the situation adds to the strain on an already troubled marriage—drawing them closer physically, yet making communication harder than ever. Spending so much time with her in-laws isn't easy for Laurel either, as Jackson's mother doesn't approve of her. Jackson thinks his mother is perfect—until she reveals something that has the power to destroy them all. Concentrating heavily on plot, Gina Wilkins makes The Secret Heir (3) a solid read, but those looking for lots of romance will be disappointed.
