Sometimes I wonder what the bar association of RomanceLandia would look like. Is there a wills department staffed by hundreds helping to craft all these directives that people get married to inherit whatever it is? What about the somewhat sketchy lawyers who pretend to be their client's fiancee. OF COURSE THAT'S FINE. Sheesh.
Esther-Anne is looking for a book she and her sister lost a long time ago:
It is a book from the 90s, and I remember the main plot but not any of the names though.
The story is about a rancher that is trying to win custody of a baby girl that I think is related to him in some way, but there is another couple trying for custody too. He ends up getting a female lawyer to help win his case.
This lady lawyer is very shy/uncomfortable around him and is kind of a prude (always wears her hair in a tight bun, crisp suits). And has no experience with babies. And another thing that keeps popping into my head is that she was in the Navy at one point.
So to win custody they pretend to be engaged, but then they start falling for each other. In the end they make their false engagement real and want to raise the little girl together.
Other than that, the cover of the book was blue with a picture of a ranch in the distance with rolling hill out in the prairie. It was a book that my sister and I had and then lost, and we've been looking for it forever.
Malpractice? What are you talking about? That's nothing. We can do so much worse! Anyone recognize that book?
