This was an interesting book. The characters are very likeable. I wanted one of the story lines to develop more, but found out that it was part of a series. I am interested to see how things work out though.

I don't often read 'romances'. Picked this one up because of the blurb on the back and enjoyed it immensely.

another in the Maitland Maternity series. All of the family characters are very different and all loveable. I enjoy each of these in the series.

In this first installment of a new Maitland Maternity series, Dr. Abby Maitland finds herself juggling her life as a loving and supportive daughter with that of her high-pressured life as a gynecologist. When an unexpected baby is found on the doorstep of her family's maternity clinic, Abby and her prominent family find themselves the targets of the media's unflattering curiosity.
Her day continues on that note when expectant uncle, Kyle McDermott is compelled to draw her into his family crisis. As Marcie's respected gynecologist, Kyle attempts to persuade Abby to nudge his sister into marriage with her boyfriend, preferably before the baby's birth. Though Abby refuses to take sides, she is rather shocked when Kyle's attentions toward her persist. Both Kyle and Abby are surprised when their relationship deepens to friendship and progresses toward love.

Marie Ferrarella has written a solid story to spearhead this series. Both Kyle and Abby have strong personalities and the moderate speed of development suits the quiet tone of this book. The tone is periodically disrupted by the edgy quality of the overarching subplot concerning the mysterious baby and its equally mysterious mother. The author, however, does a fantastic job of establishing the strength and love of the Maitland family as well as the family's maternity clinic. There are a number of secondary characters, as well, whom Ferrarella sets up quite nicely for the books that follow.

Book Description:

Dr. Abby Maitland was used to existing in a goldfish bowl, but life at her family's renowned maternity clinic had never been tinged by scandal...till now!

Kyle McDermott knew that raising his sister would be challenging, but he never figured he'd be challenging Marcie's decisin not to marry her baby's father!

Abby had her hands full. Ethically, she had to support the administration of Maitland Maternity Hospital when rumors began to fly. Likewise, she had to resist Kyle McDermott's insistence that she push her young patient into a marriage she didn't want. Resisting Kyle himself, however, was entirely another matter!
