"An engaging contemporary romance"
All Dr. Stuart Thorpe, cardiologist extraodinaire, must do
is not have a heart attack while watching his six month old
niece for a few hours. One of his chores is to take little
Bree to Providence Photography for her baby pictures to be
taken. The photographer is Kim Cooper, a former neighbor of
his. Stuart once fled his attraction to Kim because
marriage was written all over her and he was not ready to
commit. Kim thinks back to her art school crush days on
her former neighbor.
When he returns home, Stuart goes into cardiac arrest as
the replacement baby sitter calls to inform him she is
remaining in Mexico a little longer. Desperate for help
with the toddler, Stuart turns to Kim. As Stuart and Kim
watch Bree, that spark that did not quite ignite a few
years ago now turns into a raging fire. Now if they can
only commit to a permanent relationship after the
matchmaking infant returns to his mommy.
Though it is difficult to accept how helpless Stuart is
with his niece, readers need to move on if they want to
enjoy an engaging contemporary romance. Kim is a wonderful
lead character while the audience will salivate and scorn
Stuart. Kristine Rolofson opens up the year long Cooper's
Corner series with a fun novel that raises a high bar for
Vicki Lewis Thompson to match or exceed in the June edition.
