Book Description

July 14 1995 Mills & Boon Romance

Three years ago, Mary Jo Summerhill fell completely and utterly in love with Evan Dryden. But she was a kindergarten teacher, and he was a Boston blue blood with political ambitions. His family said she wasn't the "right kind of wife" for Evan. Mary Jo agreed—she didn't belong in his world. So she lied, and broke his heart. 

But now Mary Jo's parents are facing legal trouble, and she needs the best advice she can get. She needs Evan. Only, Evan isn't about to let Mary Jo off so easily. He wants answers to all the questions he's had for the past three years: Why did she leave? Does she still love him? Do they have a second chance?

Private investigator Jewel Parnell doesn't believe in romance. But Christopher Culhane is determined to prove to her that she can find happily-ever-after with him—even if he has to convince her one kiss at a time…

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance with wily fun! Aug. 6 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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?

I enjoyed this story, especially since I had already read "Ready for Romance". The characters were believable and I was drawn in to the point that I felt like I was there with them as the plot unfolded.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an awesome book Feb. 23 2013
By Theresa M. Cunningham - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Debbie Macomber and love her books. She writes a good romance that is not all sappy. I first read one of her books about two years ago and have read almost nothing else but her books since. I'm planning to read all she has written. I like that some of her stories go in directions you would never imagine and I love when she changes things up and writes in a different way. I highly recommend all of her books and I've read at least half of them.
