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.

The 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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Well written story; you can feel the main characters in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebecca | 2/13/2014

    " I honestly and truly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters. The brothers have a funny relationship. The way the town reacts to Jason is completely foreign to how he is treated in the business world. Amy is clueless but in a vulnerable way. Amy's former mother in law is crazy but seems to be the only one with a good head on her shoulders. "

    " WEalthy, jaded, cynical, handsome man (did I mention he was wealthy) meets poor but honest single mother. He lies, she objects. Do you think they'll end up together? I wonder. Pretty standard fare for the genre. Giving to bumma to read. IMHO the best thing about it was the Klimt painting on the cover. "

    " I had not read any of Deveraux's books in a while, so this one was a great renewal of her writing style. Interweaves several story lines, while centering on a single Mom (Amy) and her special son (Max). Lots of secrets, a fairy tale prince (masquerading as a gay Nanny) and loads of subtle romance made this a quick read to help me ignore the heat in Texas. "
