ISBN: 9780373718153

In Sinclair, Georgia, thirty-five years old Riley Sinclair learns she is pregnant due to in vitro fertilization treatment. She looks forward to being a single mom.

After five years away her former husband Jackson Sinclair III arrives in town ready to share his revelation with his ex-wife, but not before he stops for a hamhock burger at the Hamhock Café. Jackson realizes that he will be a father; while Riley expects him to run away again as he did when he deserted her when she most needed him after they lost their baby JT IV. He surprises her when he declares he will be part of this baby’s life though she expects him to choose flight whenever something bad needs them to fight as a team. He distrusts her as he believes she took him to the cleaners including his family estate.

The Life of Riley is an enjoyable warm second chance at love romance made fresh by Jackson who after a lifetime of flight chooses to fight for his beloved and their baby. Character driven, readers will appreciate this tender tale as Jackson sets the tone when he visits the gravesite of his late son to tell him he came home to stay.
