A Father For Danny
Harlequin SuperRomance, Sep 2008, $5.50
Tweener Danny visits artifact sleuth Samantha Sorrenti to hire her to find the father he never met. She keeps telling him she does not look for people, but his sadness hooks her when he explains his mom is in the hospital dying from cancer. She visits her almost sixty year old mom the therapist who points out to her that she is out of her league and probably doing this because her dad walked out on his three women when Sam was Danny’s age.
With the help of her FBI sister Skye, Sam locates Danny’s biological father while miraculously the child’s mom remains alive a bit longer than predicted. Chase Sullivan is stunned to learn he sired a son and wants to meet his child and take over raising him. As Sam and Chase fall in love, Danny’s avaricious relatives do not want a father interfering with the spending of Danny’s inheritance even if that means abduction and perhaps something more lethal.
Readers will feel like Sam when Danny trying to hold back tears explains his mom’s theory on hospitals is patients need patience as you are always waiting even to die. Fans and Sam are hooked and Danny knows it. Readers will enjoy this engaging romantic suspense and it also appears Janice Carter is cooking up a sequel for Skye.
