He was the right man . . . at the wrong time

Diana Travis is the woman behind the wildly popular household hints column Mother Knows Best. She hasn't met a problem that couldn't be solved by making a list. So when her sister Paula offered her a month's free stay in a posh East Hampton beachfront cottage just for babysitting her twin toddler nieces, Diana jumps at the chance to spend July by the ocean.

Diana's To-Do List is simple.

1. Take the girls to the beach every day
2. Write her columns
3. Lose ten pounds
4. Ignore the fact that her ex-husband was engaged to marry a twenty-two year old ex-cheerleader

That is only the beginning. Diana intends to fall in love after Labor Day, get engaged by Christmas, and married by Memorial Day.

And then she runs headlong into Gregory Stewart, the tall dark and handsome veterinarian with the wicked grin and amazing hands, and her well-planned future goes up in smoke when she discovers her fantasy lover is a man with a secret that could change her life forever.

Two rambunctious toddlers. An aging Abyssinian cat. A mouthy mynah bird. A book deadline. The man she'd waited a lifetime to find.

And only 30 days to get it right.
