The ABCs have never been sexier… A secret baby, second-chance, contemporary stand-alone romance
“Representing the most perfect example of quality or class” ~ Quintessential
A trip back to the small Indiana town of Riverbend to finalize my grandmother’s last will and testament throws my world off its axis. I wasn’t prepared to learn the stipulations of her will or that she’d left her beloved mercantile Quintessential Treasures to my college summertime love, Kandace Sheers. Imagine my greater surprise when I learn about the secret that’s been roaming Riverbend for the last five years. Here are a couple of hints: She’s five years old. She has her mother’s silky auburn hair and my golden eyes. The answer is simple. I take responsibility for the girl and go back to Chicago where my life awaits. It turns out, Grandma had other plans because life’s never that simple.
