"Realistic and charming mainstream work"
The townsfolk of Lake Henry, New Hampshire consider Heather
Malone as one of their own even though she only lived in
the small New England town for fourteen years. Heather
lives with Micah Smith and his two girls. They are a very
happy family unit until the FBI arrests Heather. They
believe she is Lisa Matlock, who killed a United States
Senator's son fifteen years ago in California and then
Griffin Hughes, a journalist, feels terrible because it was
his conversation with his FBI brother that led to Heather's
arrest. He travels to Lake Henry to work on his current
assignment and see if he can use his contacts to help
Heather and to romance Poppy, a paraplegic who fears that
he is confusing pity with love. Griffin is determined that
he will prove his love to Poppy no matter how long it takes.
Barbara Delinsky never fails to please her myriad fans and
her latest mainstream work is no exception. AN ACCIDENTAL
WOMAN stars a heroine who is impossible not to like and
she's determined to be independent though she's wheelchair
bound. The rather unusual courtship of Griffin and Poppy is
realistic and charming. This novel will send Ms. Delinsky
back to the New York Times bestseller lists.
