Oustanding Praise for Maureen Child and Her Novels

Finding You/Knowing You

"An absolutely wonderful contemporary romance. A delightful blend of humor and emotion, this sexy love story will definitely keep readers turning the pages."-Kristin Hannah, author of Distant Shores

"The Candellano family is warm and wonderful...you'll get swept up in the lives and loves of these passionate and fascinating individuals."-Romantic Times

"Delightful romances involving colorful and yet realistic characters make these two stories by Maureen Child, a veritable feast for the eyes. The large Italian family of the Candellanos is very convincing and the characterizations are so mature and honest that the author is to be applauded for such skillful crafting and accurate portrayal...the heartfelt emotions leap from the pages, and the delicately blended humor and pathos render these stories memorable...after the exhilarating first story, readers will feel compelled to read the other one too, and neither disappoints. Maureen Child is an author to watch out for." -The Road to Romance

"A fresh tale of family, conflict, and love...the characters are endearing."-Old Book Barn Gazette

"Both of these novels are engaging contemporary romances with a warm ensemble that feels like the kitchen of many readers. The story lines will hook readers because the characters seem genuine and friendly."-Harriet's Book Review

Loving You

"Maureen Child always writes a guaranteed winner, and this is no exception. Heartwarming, sexy, and impossible to put down."-Susan Mallery, author of Married for a Month

Synopsis:

Holiday shop owner Carol Baker infuses her business and her life with peace and good will. But she has secrets from her past that make her all the more determined to someday have a family of her own. She never expects a sweltering July heat wave to bring the gift of a baby girl who needs a mother's love...and a man who needs to heal his wounded soul.

Ex-LAPD copy Jack Reilly's back in town--temporarily--to fill in for the ailing local sheriff. Haunted by the tragedy that made him leave Los Angeles, Jack doesn't believe in "forever." His sassy landlady Carol, with her year-round Chistmas spirit, gorgeous smile, and adorable little foster daughter, Liz, begin to bring him back to life. But the past has a way of coming back again, and the dark places of the heart have a way of staying hidden. Still, good things have a way of happening in Christmas--and if the Reillys have anything to say about it, what develops between Carol and Jack will be some kind of wonderful...

Synopsis:

#1 bestselling author Maureen Child delivers heartfelt stories that touch a chord with her legions of readers. Now she introduces the Reilly clan of Christmas, California-an idyllic coastal town that revolves around the happiest day of the year and where anything is possible when it comes to love...
