Melanie - There's a book by Claire Cross hidden among the Ridgways. It's a favorite of mine:

 

 

 

All or Nothing 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I picked it up during a visit to Chicago, not realizing it was part of a series of four books. I really liked all of them (I went back and read them all later) but this one is special.

 

Some people will do anything for true love — even if they have to fake it.


Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm — until she met Zach. He's the perfect fake date to end her mother's matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he'd probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that's what Jen tells herself.


The only problem is that Zach isn't as predictable as he appears...


Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date — only to invite him to her family's Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile — and he's betting that he can unravel her mysteries — even if he has to do it over candied yams.


A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach's love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado — and Zach's discovery of her real motive — combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen's worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he's willing to make...but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he's got.

 

And, wow, you learn something new every day. I didn't realize Claire Cross also writes as Claire Delacroix and Deborah Cooke! That means I've got to read all those books, too, because I LOVE the Claire Cross books! And, what do you know, I just happen to have a couple of Deborah Cooke books in my TBR pile!!
