LAST FAMILY STANDING
Twenty-five years ago, Monica Stanton gave up a baby girl for adoption. Now, the thing Monica didn’t dare hope for has happened: Jessica has reentered her life . . . and brought a little drama and competition with her. Jessica is willing to meet her birth mother, but she wants the reunion to air on a reality TV show. Monica would rather chew glass than appear on TV. But she’ll swallow her pride—and a few other unsavory items—if that’s what it takes to reconnect.
As if getting to know her grown daughter while competing on a remote island isn’t hard enough, Monica is further confused when Jessica’s long-lost birth father shows up, complicating both her relationship with her daughter and the attraction Monica has to the hunky reality show host. The fruit-basket upset of emotions, accusations, and regrets might make for good TV, but will it destroy the family in the process?
This book has it all... grief, laughter, reconnecting with a child you gave up for adoption. Monica had good reason for giving up her daughter, she was unable to provide... going hungry. Though a hard thing to do she knew it was best for her baby. Now Monica has agreed to go on a reality show to meet her daughter who has been looking for her.
I enjoyed this book very much, once mother and daughter meet they begin an exciting adventure which had me smiling as I turned pages. This is another Alee hit!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
