Hometown Dad
by Merrillee Whren

For single mom Melanie Drake, nothing is more important than her two livewire sons. As a young widow, she feels the burden of raising them alone, but she knows she has to move on with her life.

When she meets Nathan Keller, son of the local bank president, to talk about her finances, she can't help noticing how well he relates to her sons. Nathan's offer to involve the boys in Kellersburg's baseball program finds the boys talking nonstop about Coach Nathan. Even though Melanie thinks Nathan is out of her league, her sons think Coach Nathan would make the perfect hometown dad.

Will these two young matchmakers find a way to bring their mom and Coach Nathan together?

Originally published February 2011 in mass market paperback by Steeple Hill Love Inspired #615.

She is also a member of Novelists, INC. She is married to her own personal hero, her husband of forty-plus years, and has two grown daughters. She has lived in South Dakota, Montana, Spokane, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Chicago and Amelia Island, but now makes her home in the Arizona desert. When she’s not writing or working for her husband’s recruiting firm, she spends her free time playing tennis, bridge or walking while she plots her novels.
