Baby Blues and Wedding Bells
By Patricia McLinn
(available June 2005)
Book 4 ~ “Something Blue …”
"With her two latest books set in a perfectly realized and perfectly charming small town, McLinn has created two beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read." ~ American Library Association's Booklist magazine
The prodigal son of Tobias, Wisconsin’s premier family is coming home, and the town will never be the same. Zach Corbett grew up as a charming rebel with startling blue eyes, who shrugged off responsibilities, letting others – especially his older brother Steve – pick up the slack. Now he’s going to put the hard-earned maturity he’s gained in eight-and-a-half years away to the ultimate test – a bigger test than even he knows.
Zach’s expectations of his homecoming are demolished when a girl named Nell answers the door at his childhood home and announces that she is his daughter, and his brother is raising her as his own child.
Fran Dalton specializes in coming to the rescue, from nursing her father to restoring the jungle-like gardens around Bliss House as part of a community project to renovate the old estate. She’s vowed the gardens will be her very last rescue project. But when Zach walks back into Tobias, Fran sees a situation she can’t turn her back on.
Too many hearts are at stake. Nell’s, Steve and his wife’s, Zach’s. And maybe even her own.
