The messy life of Jane Tanner / Brenda Novak.

Novak, Brenda, (author.).


Jane Tanner's friends are settling down, while she's been settling for less. She longs for adventure and the big city, but caring for her ailing grandfather means she's shackled to her small town. She's excited her vintage gift shop is finally up and running, but it's not enough. Longing to fulfill at least one dream -- to become a mother before her biological clock ticks out -- Jane drunkenly propositions the worst possible candidate for Dad. Kurt Elway is off-limits with a capital O. He's a good friend, but he's too young, too busy running his family's ranch. Plus, he and Jane's sister, Kate, used to date. That kind of off-limits. Unbeknownst to Jane, Kurt's pining for her. When he's fully on board to father her baby, she sees him in a new light. Then lingering baggage between Kate and Kurt suddenly surfaces and Jane is reminded of just how messy life is. But . . . so is parenting. Maybe it's time to embrace the mess? -- Provided by publisher.
