BOOK SYNOPSIS
He’s ready to die…

Riddled with survivor's guilt, Detective Kevin O'Brien stoically accepts his doctor’s diagnosis. He gets his affairs in order so he can spend his last days in comfort and peace in a quaint bed and breakfast inn. What he finds is a charming young woman who can use his help.

…but she makes him want to live!

More than anything, Bethany Miller longs to have a baby before the alarm sounds on her biological clock, but without the hassle of a husband. She fights her attraction to the mysterious Kevin; he doesn’t fit into her plans. She reconsiders when he proposes a no-strings offer of fatherhood...and marriage. But Kevin and Bethany learn that the best-laid plans are subject to change.

BOOK EXCERPTS
Slumped over the stack of mail piled on the ancient trestle table, Bethany Miller hovered her pen over her checkbook.

"Are you expecting any guests this week?" Debbie stood gazing out the kitchen window, her arms buried in a huge pottery mixing bowl.

"Not until Friday," Bethany answered. "Why?"

"Someone’s pulled in. I don’t know the car." The older woman stretched her slim body across the counter for a better view. "Could be someone looking for a place to stay."

Bethany’s answering chortle held no humor. "I wish! Until Friday, our only guest is Mr. Gibb."

"Humph. Don’t you mean Mr. Glib?"

"Debbie! Lower your voice." Bethany shook her head. "Although, I agree, he isn’t exactly the conversationalist."

"It’s a shame. I thought he was cute." Debbie stood on tip-toes now, the dough she’d been kneading forgotten. She twisted her neck and pressed her cheek against the glass pane. "I was just wondering who this guy is with the Indiana plates. Now he’s getting out."

"Indiana, eh? That wouldn’t be the Reynolds couple. Anyway, they aren’t due in until Friday." Bethany joined Debbie at the window, flattening her face against the cool, hard glass. A late model car pulled even with the front of the house; a low palm tree blocked her view of the driver. "Is there a television crew behind him? Maybe I’ve won the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes."

"Sorry. No TV cameras in sight."

"That’s too bad." She ran a hand through her unruly curls as she turned away from the sink. "I ran out of money after the electric bill. There’s still the November mortgage payment and I’ve yet to pay October’s. Then there are the groceries--"

"He’s coming to the door," Debbie broke in, spinning from the window. "You’ll have to handle this. I’m up to my elbows in flour."

"Sure." Bethany arched her back in a stretch, then headed toward the front door. "Thank goodness the mortgage company isn’t in Indiana."
