When businessman Aidan Nikolas borrows a cottage on a friend's estate to recover after a heart attack, he meets Beth Tully, his friend's sister, and her son. Equally charmed by both, Aidan spends time with them and soon realizes that Beth's son is troubled. Unwilling to leave the subject of her son alone after his own wife's suicide, Aidan is just in time to save him, and he and Beth cement their own relationship at the same time. Anna Adams' Temporary Father (3) has a good plot and characterization, but Aidan's and Beth's problems get resolved too easily. Beth's son moves very quickly from suicidal back to just troubled, and Adams' depiction of a troubled mother seems too light.
