Susan Sinclair has it all: great job, great apartment -- and on some days she even manages great hair. She doesn't have a great man, but she's far too successful to have time for one. The she gets a frantic summons to return to where it all began -- Copper Creek, her home in Michigan -- only to discover that her grown daughter has followed in her not-so-proud footsteps by getting pregnant without getting married and her widowed mom seems to be scandalously juggling more men then she can count ...
And, worst of all, he's still there -- Jon Laker -- still the man most likely to drive her crazy. So she marches into his business and declares she's there to discuss their daughter -- and nothing else. After all, she made her choices a long time ago ... but hours later -- after not doing very much talking at all -- Susan realizes that seeing Jon has turned her well-ordered world upside down. And Jon -- plus mom and daughter -- means it's going to be a long, hot summer in this small, small town.

Jennifer Greene grew up in the exclusive suburbs of Grosse Pointe, Michigan--and gave it all up to marry her husband and move to a rural peach farm. They had to restore an old house that had been on his family#146;s property since the 1800s (complete with things that crawl in the night!). Now, years later, they still have the farm and two college-age children. Jennifer is a member of the (also exclusive) Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, which means she has won three Rita Awards--for her work in contemporary romance.From Publishers Weekly:
At the start of this sweetly sanguine offering, Susan Sinclair, her widowed mother, Lydia, and her daughter, Becca, are at critical junctures in their lives. Susan, a successful businesswoman, has come home to scenic Copper Creek, Mich., to check up on her mother, who, Becca claims, has gone nutty. Upon her arrival, she discovers that Becca has a bigger problem. She has gotten pregnant out of wedlock. Fears of ending up like Lydia, who was unhappy in her one-sided marriage, kept Susan from marrying Becca's father, Jon Laker, and now Becca is worried that she'll foul up her own future. As for Jon, he would love to have the exasperating Susan back in his life if only she would stop running from him and commitment in general. Greene's (Devil's Night, etc.) writing possesses a modern sensibility and frankness that is vivid, fresh and often funny. She also manages to tackle important issues such as abortion without making light of them or resorting to melodrama. Lydia's "born-again hip" manner of speaking may be far-fetched for some (does any grandma say "way cool?"), and readers will undoubtedly be frustrated that it takes so long for Susan and Jon to work through their issues. Still, readers will rejoice when the couple finally get it right.
