Jane’s Gift-Abby Gaines

Jane’s Gift

Abby Gaines

Harlequin SuperRomance, May 7 2013, $5.75

ISBN: 9780373718504

Driving to Pinyon Ridge, Colorado, Jane Slater is late to the funeral of her best and only friend Melissa who had beaten cancer in her twenties only to die at thirty-one when her date crashed in a DUI accident. Melissa wanted Jane to be in her young daughter Daisy’s life over the objection of the child’s father Pinyon Ridge Mayor Kyle Everson who has full custody.

Kyle has always felt that Jane and her kin were bad influences. However, he admires her gumption as she refuses to quit on her late BFF’s request while both place the interests of Daisy over their own desires. As the adults fall in love, each remains in denial while Daisy disagrees with both adults as she has different dreams for the future.

Although the early denying feels overdone, readers will enjoy this romance as Melissa’s gift to Jane is love. Character-driven, fans will relish visiting Colorado as Abby Gaines provides a warm family drama.
