This is a well-written romance with a bit of fun as you can tell from the info below. In a way, it reminds me of Jayne Krentz's stories for the humor, here and there. But also, it is a wonderful mix from what appears to be a mismatched couple. This was my first book authored by Debbie Macomber. Highly recommend.
This is from the book's back cover. (The story is not in first-person form):
What do you do when you love him---but love isn't enough? If you're Mary Jo Summerhill, kindergarten teacher, and you're in love with Boston blud blood and political hopeful Evan Dryden, you get out of his life. You do it by lying to him, by telling him you've found someone else. And you break his heart...All because you believed that you didn't belong in his world. All because his mother said you weren't the "right kind of wife."
That happened three years ago. Now your parents need legal help--Evan's help--and you go to him. You discover you're as much in love with him as ever. You don't know how <i>he</i> feels, though, and you wonder: Does love ever get a second chance?
