Description
When Thea Wyndham and Mitchell Baker learn they've been named joint guardians for their late friends' three children, they're little more than acquaintances. Barely polite acquaintances, at that. Something about Mitch's forthright intensity has always left ad exec Thea feeling off-balance, while Mitch makes no secret of his disdain when Thea offers him financial assistance if he'll take sole guardianship.
Thea is far from heartless. She's just plain terrified of her new parenting responsibilities. Both she and Mitch are romantically involved with other people. Yet the more time they spend together, the less certain she is of her loyalties. There are complications and missteps, tears and laughter—lots of it. And somehow, through it all, the dawning realization that the last place she thought she'd find herself could be just where she belongs. . .
Praise for Jo Goodman's Marry Me

        Starred review from October 15, 2011

        Caught off guard when they become joint guardians of three children after the parents, their dear friends, are killed in an accident, businesswoman Thea Wyndham and political cartoonist Mitchell Baker struggle with their grief, their situation, and their difficult significant others. They realize that neither is prepared to become a parent--and certainly not alone. But the children need them, and as they work to solve their separate dilemmas, Thea and Mitch discover that they need each other, as well. VERDICT Realistic, romantic, and infused with plenty of humor, this brilliantly executed, fearlessly sensual first contemporary title from an author who has made her name in historicals is a stunning success. While this reviewer wouldn't want to see Goodman neglect the historical arena, another modern-day winner like this heartwarming novel would be more than welcome. Goodman (Kissing Comfort) lives in West Virginia.
