I was a single Mother with a 5 year old daughter named Reese and she was sick too; Leukemia. I was a widow after my husband died in the Navy. We got a letter saying that my husband Allen Lamonica was MIA (missing in action), I did not find out until two weeks later that he had died. The letter had said that he was missing; there was a explosion and he could have been blown to bits. I was devastated. There I was a widow and a single mother of a four year old daughter. When I met my husband the Chemo Thereapist we instantly bonded and then we fell in love. He cured my daughter and then he proposed to me. I of course said yes and we married when my Reese got all of her strength back. Now I am back on track with a husband; William a daughte Reese and a unborn child

In Salt Lake City, Thad Winters, still mourns the death of his beloved spouse and unborn child due to a drunken driver. To give him the child he was denied and to provide him with something to live for, Thad wants to raise a child containing his genes. He offers a hundred thousand dollars for a woman to accept artificial insemination, carry his baby to fruition, and then stay out of their lives.

Unable to take any more aggressive interviewees, Thad selects Macy McKinley who informed him that she needs $98,523, but refuses to tell him why. However, during a background check, Thad learns that the divorced Macy needs the money so that her beloved five-year old daughter Haley can receive a life saving bone marrow transplant. Thad and Macy reach an agreement that includes his safeguarding his investment by a temporary marriage. As Macy and Thad remain in close proximity, they fall in love with one another. However, she mistrusts love after her former spouse deserted her and he feels guilty for betraying his first wife by falling in love again. Love may not be enough to heal the deep wounds of either one of this deserving pair.

BABY BUSINESS is an emotional gut-wrenching relationship drama that continually pulls at the heart of the reader. Macy is an incredibly brave person willing to do anything to try to save her daughter¿s life. Thad struggles with his love for Macy and Haley against his feelings of be unfaithfulness towards his first wife. Brenda Novak beautifully writes about the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of loving someone.
