Her Daughter's Father
Gretchen Martindale, a former foster child, steps up when Laine, 12, and Nettie, 5, need a home after they run away from their foster dad whom Laine suspects is molesting Nettie. Gretchen’s heart becomes entwined with the girls and she decides to adopt them, creating the family she thought she’d never have.
But Laine aches to find her birth mother. When school counselor, Craig, offers to pay for a DNA search, no one is more surprised than he is with the results. Laine is Craig’s daughter, the result of a long-ago hook-up. Since Gretchen is already falling for the handsome counselor, and he for her, things might work out well. Or maybe not …
Laine says she doesn’t want a dad, just a mom. And Craig? He’s a dedicated commitment-phobe. Will it ever be possible for Gretchen and Craig to make a family for her girls?
