Even long-time gardeners will learn something from this book!
This is a delightful book! One of the things that I realy like is that it's got a nice binder so that when you are trying one of the recipes, it stays open!!! A definite plus! It even has an index at the back!

David: A shattered hero who'd returned to claim his beloved...
Even he wasn't sure how he'd survived, but David Moore was finally free after six years in capitivity...a lonely man whose face and voice were unrecognizable as those of the husband and father who'd been declared dead. Only his dreams of sweet, vulnerable Kathy and his baby son Ben had kept him going, but now that he'd come back, David wasn't sure there'd be any room in their new lives for him.
Ruggedly masculine, and definitely untamed...
Kate Moore had never given up hoping for a miracle to bring her husband back--but raising a child alone had forced her to grow up, transformed her into a strong, sure woman. Men had pursued her but never tempted her to risk loving again...until the enigmatic handyman who'd befriended her son gazed at her with fierce intensity.

"With the arrival of her thirtieth birthday and with her best friend's plans to move, Delaney Lawson longs to fill the empty places of her life and her heart with a child of her own. Acting completely out of character and swept away by her impetuous best friend's encouragement, Delaney and Rebecca drive to Boise to find a man. Never mind Delaney's virginity; one night of naughtiness will fill more important needs.
Connor Armstrong noticed the women the moment they entered the bar. The woman he comes to know as Delaney wears a sinful dress that completely contrasts her attitude. Connor has vowed to give up his dissolute life, but Delaney proves to be temptation he cannot refuse. Their night together is magic, but when Connor says that he wants to see her again Delaney escapes without leaving behind a trace of her identity.
Three weeks later, the test strip turns pink and reality sets in. Delaney's foolish plan was successful, but the consequences are much greater than she expected. Worse, Connor has moved to town to take over his grandfather's ranch. And when he tracks Delaney down and learns of the pregnancy, Connor makes it clear that he will not simply walk away. It seems impossible that Connor can overcomes his feelings of betrayal, or Delaney her feelings of guilt, especially as events spiral completely out of control for both of them.
Friendship, family, and offbeat personalities sparkle in A BABY OF HER OWN. Brenda Novak once again displays her dazzling gift for creating characters we believe in, who make us react whether it be with a laugh or a tear, resulting in both vivid drama and entrancing tenderness. On one hand, Delaney struggles with the tick of her biological clock, a desire to be loved, and her wish for a child. On the other hand, Conner's own need for family and an opportunity to prove himself compliments Delaney's personality perfectly, but the struggle to prove his sincerity to both her and his grandfather pushes him to the limit. In addition, Rebecca carves her own place in readers' hearts with her purple hair and brash attitude that conceals a heart of gold, causing readers to eagerly look forward to her tale next year. Delaney's loving but meddlesome family and small town likewise spring to live with a charm that all big city dweller occasionally long for." recommended."
