Overview

Samantha Marconi never thought she’d see Jeff Hendricks again, but it turns out her ex is not so “ex,” after all. A lazy clerk failed to file their divorce paperwork, which means they’re still married. And it also means, as painful as it is, Sam can finally talk to Jeff about the baby she lovingly gave up for adoption when their marriage fell apart. Except… when she knocks on his door, a little girl answers. A little girl who looks a lot like Sam.

Jeff’s heart broke when he thought Sam didn’t want the child they’d created together. His manipulative mother made sure he never received Sam’s frantic letters, so he raised their young daughter on his own. After eight years, can he risk allowing Sam back into their lives? With passion still burning hot, he’s worried that if they can’t make this work, his little girl will be the one who’s hurt the most.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Lynne Welch
This engaging second-chance-at-love story displays Child's trademark tenderness toward children, her belief in the importance of family through good times and bad, and the sort of engagingly quirky supporting characters she portrays so well, all set in a familiar, warm, and comforting hometown atmosphere.

    This my fourth book by Maureen Child and she never disappoints. I fell in love wth the Marconi sisters and I am looking forward to reading Mike(Micheala) and Jo's(Josefina) stories. Do yourself a favor and get this book. You'll be entranced by Sam(Samantha), Jeff, and their adorable daughter Emma.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! I'd been holding out reading the Marconi Sisters trilogy until all three books were released--now that they are, I picked up AND THEN CAME YOU yesterday and finished it today. <BR/><BR/>Samantha "Sam" Marconi is the middle child, the sensible one, the "good one." Not as take-charge as her older sister Jo, or as quick-tempered as her younger sister Mike, Sam is the one to stay in line. That was always true, until she married her first love, Jeff Hendricks, at the age of eighteen. That was nine years ago, but Sam hasn't forgotten a thing--falling in love, watching her young husband leave, getting pregnant, giving up the baby for adoption, coming home to face her divorce alone. <BR/><BR/>But then Jeff shows up, with a few surprises. They're not divorced. The daughter Sam gave up was raised by him. His mother plotted not only their divorce and the fact that Emma, their child, grew up with only one parent, but the truth that Sam has no idea that Jeff never wanted divorced all those years ago--that he does, in fact, think Sam divorced him. <BR/><BR/>AND THEN CAME YOU is a wonderful contemporary romance. Two great main characters who never truly got over their first loves, a daughter who wants only to see those around her happy, and a supporting cast that will totally delight you. <BR/><BR/>Mike's and Jo's stories will be next for me--the only thing I worry about is how I'll feel once this trilogy is over!

    Amazing Contemporary Romance

    Great Modern Day Romance

    Samantha Marconi was married at 18 to the love of her life, Jeff Herendricks. Their relationship seemed to be based on lust. After a few weeks of marriage they both went their separate ways. Jeff was in London on a business trip. Sam was pregnant with no one to turn to and they both thought they wanted nothing to do with each other. Nine years later Jeff and Emma, their daughter that Sam thought she lost forever, showed up on her door step. Jeff wanted a divorce because he wanted to get remarried. He wanted a two parent family for Emma. Sam wouldn¿t accept the divorce until Jeff agreed to give her joint custody. Sam and Jeff spent a couple days together and old feeling came rushing back. So they were forced to deal with their past that they ran from while remembering what their future could bring.

    Fantastic romance

    When Samantha Marconi was eighteen she met and fell in love with upper crust Jeff Hendricks. The couple married over the objections of their family. He left for London on business and she became pregnant. He never returned to her, contacted her or answered her letters except to provide her with the divorce papers. She gave up the child for adoption..................................... Nine years, Jeff visits Sam to ask her to sign new divorce papers as the ones they signed were never filed by the government clerk. He is going to remarry. However, when she goes to see him at his hotel, she sees a miniature Marconi as he as raised the child she left behind. They share angry notes and soon realize his deceased mother orchestrated the split. Sam insists she has time with Emma or else; Jeff agrees. As Emma plays matchmaker, the spark between Jeff and Sam reignites, but can they overcome their history even if they are in love and love the same third person........................................ Why Sam gave up her newborn with the loving family she had seems odd though it apparently has to do with her mom¿s death just before the birth. Fans will enjoy this fine contemporary tale. The Marconi mob is a tough crowd that any male would think twice of defying. Jeff is a solid protagonist, Emma is a precocious child (too accepting of her mom in her life), and his deceased mom was a maestro manipulator who made Machiavelli look like an amateur. The interplay between everyone makes for a fine tale................................. Harriet Klausner
