Entertaining contemporary romance
Susannah Dawson fled Hollywood after being the TV star of popular soap opera Mercy Hospital. She moves to Arlington in northwest Connecticut to get as far away from Los Angeles as possible. Living next door to Susannah is handsome pediatrician, Dr. Toby Cole a widower and his precocious but troubled daughter Lindsey. <P>Without asking, Lindsey invites Susannah to join them for dinner. Lindsey is a big fan of Susannah¿s show, which Toby never heard of, let alone seen. As the neighbors become acquainted with one another, they fall in love. However, Lindsey has problems and does not want to share her beloved new friend with her Dr. Dad. Lindsey is reaching out to TV celebrity Dr. Lee Davis or at least celebrity Susannah, but instead receives homebody Sue Dawson. If Lindsey fails to adjust to the possibility that the former star could be her new mother, Toby and Sue will grieve what could have been. Even the Daddy School cannot help this Trio. <P>Judith Arnold provides contemporary readers with a special treat, a return to the beloved ¿Daddy School¿. The story line centers on relationships, both loving and negative. Sue and Toby are a charming couple, but ten-year old Lindsey steals the show with her ulcer-giving tempestuous behavior that many readers will recognize. Any one who enjoys a warm tale that highlights the love between a father and daughter will want to read DR. DAD. <P>Harriet Klausner
