What’s A Mother To Love about?
An Unexpected Family

A Mother To Love - Front Cover (2)Angie Bursten wants to find love on her own timeline. Tired of her family’s interference, coworker Rick Jameson comes to the rescue—as her pretend boyfriend. Angie starts to spend time with Rick and his adorable daughter, Carly, and what began as a hoax soon feels all too real. Betrayed by the woman he’d married, single dad Rick is slow to trust. But seeing Angie with Carly, he can’t ignore the way he feels for his beautiful coworker. And when Angie helps Rick with the toughest battle of his life—gaining full custody of his child—there’ll be no more pretending. If they can open their hearts, Rick and Angie have a real shot at happily-ever-after. Read Chapter One or Purchase

    Dear Gail, I think and pray for you and your husband often hoping all is going well. Sorry to hear you’ve been struggling with all your extra tasks. Wish I could give you a big hug and encourage you as you inspired me. I hope you were able to get your taxes done and I’m glad your speaking engagement with the nurses went well. It’s great to see all the books you have out now and I pray they all do well!! Sincerely, Jenny

    I have read the book and loved it. I had to spend a few hours in Owosso this year for my job at the University and it is a beautiful little town. I look forward to the possibilities for happiness on Lilac Circle.
