Kind of schizo story line ordinary, inoffensive romance plot about a wedding dress designer, reporter, and cute baby, meets somewhathistrionic plot about a life altering accident and a controlling mother, meets completely over the top plot about postpartum depression, a sketchy preacher romance, and an arsonist angel. what can i say It is a lite and easy read, without too much surprise or any of the wow factor Its a simple love story, its romance, iits real What i wasn t expected is how well written this book to be without having it to be a cheesy romance Although, as 99.9% romance books goes, the happy ever after ending is pretty much predicted from the word read This book can consider one of Freethy s better work However, nothing out standing from it. It s the kind of story investigative reporter Matt Winters writes about not the kind he wants to be living When he discovers a newborn baby girl on his doorstep, he panics then he desperately turns to his temptingly pretty neighbor Caitlyn Devereaux for help After all, women are supposed to know everything about babies Caitlyn s natural sensuality intrigues Matt and heraching vulnerability as she holds the precious bundle piques his curiosityThe wedding gowns she creates are famous for fulfilling every bride sfantasies, yet she firmly says that marriage and motherhood are not for her But her
