Book Review

Leaving home, non-earthling Lila space-travels to a coastal town on the Delmarva Peninsula to complete a
critical mission. She meets up with
Dr. Paul Anderson, a busy physician
with active twin boys, and finds herself working as a live-in nanny and housekeeper. An unlikely romance blossoms between them.

McCoy accomplishes several things: Despite the often selfish motivations of the characters, they remain sympathetic. The novel's premise is original, and the small-town setting is both a means of comedy and a tool to drive the plot. However, this book is the second in
a trilogy and, unfortunately, does not stand entirely alone. The author uses a cliffhanger ending, which is unsatisfying after an essentially enjoyable novel.

In the final pages, readers are
introduced to a character previously unmentioned, and an important aspect
of the hero and heroine's fate is left unresolved. If the loose ends dealt with secondary characters instead of our protagonists, this might be an acceptable ploy but, as it is, the book ends disappointingly. (Dec., 384 pp., $5.99)
