Even small towns have secrets.

Morgan Cavanaugh is the new local doctor. He is replacing the newly retired local doctor. Morgan also needs his family to recover from a very trying few years including as illness he developed working in Africa. What Morgan discovers is that his former girlfriend is still in town, and she has two children. That hurts. It turns out, Rebecca Walters, his ex-girlfriend, is the practice manager. She is concerned for her job as a new owner means she may have to leave town to find other work. Her secret is that her twins are Morgan’s.

As the story unfolds, Morgan discovers that his parents are caring for Rebecca’s children. But Morgan thinks only one of them is his and the other is from another man, Dan, who is currently living in the house with Rebecca and her children. And that was a nicely played twist by the author, having each child born either side of midnight to muddy the waters!

I would like to tell more of the story threads, but it could also lead to some spoilers. It is enough to say there are many secrets that will be revealed in this small town and among the Cavanaugh family. Past mistakes that impact on the future and not just the future of Morgan, Rebecca and the children.

I really liked the sense of the small town in this story. The town and people themselves are always characters that add just that little bit more to the story and the people who live there. The characters are relatable for those of us in everyday life but the round to the HEA is worth the ride.
