Publisher's Summary

When wealthy, hard-driving corporate genius Jason Wilding reluctantly takes a break from his business and his husband-hunting girlfriends for a Christmas visit to his hometown in Abernathy, Kentucky, he has no idea what his physician brother, David, has in store for him. It seems that Amy Thompkins, a whimsical young widow with definite artistic talent, has captured David's heart, but courting her with a demanding baby in tow has been difficult. In order to pursue her, he persuades Jason to move into her home and take care of her spoiled but adorable son, Max, for a week.

For a fiercely efficient CEO, it's an impossible scene: a falling-down old house; buckets on the dining-room floor to catch the rain; a widow living on next to nothing, with no marketable skills. But Amy's joy for life, her love for her son, and her sparkling humor are irresistible - and tiny Max adores Jason beyond reason. Soon, Jason sees Amy and her future as a prime target for his strategic planning. Importing his private chef to prepare the little one's food and buying a baby store so that his mother can get real bargains are just the beginning. Because enigmatic Jason is thawing - the tender feelings and longing he has buried for years are begging to be heard.

Mutual attraction is glowing bright, but what to do about David? Once again, Jude Deveraux's deft hand and loving vision conjure up a novel full of surprises and delights, in a story that will warm all our hearts and make us believe in the power of miracles, large and small. It's a tale for all seasons, and a love story to remember always.

©1999 Jude Deveraux (P)2012 Simon & Schuster, Inc.

    "Jude Deveraux is wonderful!"

    I think I'll read every book that Jude Deveraux writes! She has so many fresh ideas and puts them out there in perfect form!

    Story
    "disappointed with the author"

    This could have been a fantastic story unfortunately the author decided to throw in homosexuality into the book, not everybody wants to read that type of garbage I have enjoyed this author in the past. If she continues to throw this junk into her writing she will be taking off my reading list. I understand there are some people in this world that that does not offend however there are also some of us in this world that don't want to read or hear that type of garbage. Please keep this out of your books or advertise that this will be in the books so that we don't have to return.

    "Slow but good ending"

    This started out very slow. I considered stopping several times. But about half way thru it picked up and the last few chapters turned it around.

    "Love it"

    This is an easy listen. Great story even if a little predictable. Now I want to hear about Max as a grown up!

    "Not new"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I wish Audible would identify the original publication date of books. This was published over10 yrs ago and I was expecting a new book.
