In Macomber’s romance novel, Dori Robertson and Gavin Parker are both single parents. Dori has a son and Gavin a daughter who are both eleven. When the children decide they want their parents to marry again, they hatch out a plan to pair Dori and Gavin together. In an attempt to appease the situation, the couple begins dating only to find stars in each other’s eyes.

A great story about children and their desire to be a family. ( )

While driving her son Danny to school, Dori Robertson never expected him to ask for a new daddy, but he did. Stunned, she forgot were she was and what she was doing. Getting a handle on things, she turned around without looking for traffic. Spilling his drink, Gavin Parker followed the driver that had cut him off. The women and her son seemed to be having problems of her own but that didn’t mean he would let the matter slide. Many different decisions made by Dori and Gavin kept putting them together, but once the kids met, Danny and Melissa seemed to help pull them together even more.

Cute, sweet and quick, just what you expect from Debbie Macomber. Great characterization of the parents and the kids. Always a treat to read her work, this one happens to be a re-release from 1986 as part of the Harlequin “Famous Firsts”. So glad it was re-printed otherwise it might not have come to my attention. Even though it is an older story, it is a timeless one and other than the obvious lack of cell phones, it could just as easily be a current storyline. ( )
