Maddie Townsend's husband has left her for a younger woman. If that's not cliche enough, it's his nurse that Maddie hired whom the rat-fink has knocked up. What makes matters worse is that he's insensitive or arrogant enough to believe they're all going to be one big, happy family. One small problem - Maddie and the rat fink's kids are so not on board with the arrangement. As matter their oldest son Ty is violently opposed to his dad's living arrangements and the fact that his dad has left his mom. The middle son, Kyle has pretty much quit talking and Katie the baby of the family is inconsolable.

But Maddie's best friends and mom are there to help put the pieces back together. But does that include Ty' s hot, baseball coach or will he make things even worse? Even more than a romance this is a story of friendship, at least that's what I enjoyed the most ( )

Book description
There's nothing like a little serenity ----- Maddie Townsend might live in a town called Serenity, but there's been nothing calm or peaceful about her life since her marriage broke up. This stay-at-home mom has no job skills, an out-of-control sixteen-year-old son, a talkative fourteen-year-old who's suddenly gone silent, a six-year-old daughter whose heart is broken, an ex-husband whose younger girlfriend is expecting their baby and two best friends who think she's somehow qualified to help them open a fitness spa for women.

But if Maddie is a tad on edge with all that on her plate, it's nothing compared to the chaos that ensues when she discovers that her son's baseball coach has feelings for her and the whole town disapproves. Maddie's faced a lot of challenges lately with strength and resolve, but Cal Maddox may turn out to be more than she can handle.

Then again, he could just be the one man in all of South Carolina who can help her find serenity.
