Delaney Lawson's beginning to feel the constraints of her staid existence. She longs to break the mold and take what she wants most in life, before it's too late. Only what she wants is a baby. That's where her best friend Rebecca comes in. Rebecca talks her into going to the big city to find a man. But when her "one night stand" moves into the area, Delaney finds herself in the middle of the biggest scandal to rock their small town in years.
It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s career as a bestselling author—she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home. “When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including five Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best and the National Reader’s Choice Award. Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children—three girls and two boys. When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.6 million.
