A Wedding For Baby-Laura Marie Altom

A Wedding For Baby
Laura Marie Altom
Harlequin American, Sep 2009, $4.99
ISBN: 9780373752805

Six months pregnant Gabby Craig is shocked when Ben Bocelli, the father of her unborn, decamps. Ironically his family remains warm and loving towards her as if she were their offspring instead of the deserting wastrel.

Gabby is having health issues with her pregnancy and heart issues with falling in love with Ben’s brother Judge Dane Bocelli. He is attracted to her, but avoids her until her health issues surface. He is there for her in her hour of need, but Ben is back begging for a second chance arguing he is a changed responsible adult.

This is a terific romantic triangle starring two brothers and the woman they love. Ironically, Dane is there for Gabby but without candy and flowers while Ben is not but with candy and flowers; Ben is confident his impish smile will win the competition while Dane is “Running Scared” (nod to Roy Orbison) he cannot compete especially since he is only the child’s uncle. Although the ending is too easy, fans will enjoy attending A WEDDING FOR BABY as the audience don’t know Jack as to whom Gabby will select.
