Bo just can't seem to catch a break. Potentially alcoholic, a womanizer, and a baseball player whose career has finally (belatedly) taken off, Bo is terrified to be given emergency guardianship of his son. A boy whom he has never met, the kid just doesn't seem to want to get to know him, despite the charisma that usually gets Bo whatever he wants. Kimberly, a sports press agent whose life has hit a major rutt, reluctantly agrees to help Bo get his career – and his life – back on track. Will the two find love in the process? A novel about what really makes family family, Fireside was an enjoyable read for any time of the year, but especially in front of the fire. Although it is nothing spectacular, it is a fun read worth the time, especially for those who want to follow the Lakeshore series.

Another great story by Susan Wiggs. I'm enjoying her Lakeshore Chronicles series.
