The Baby Contract by Nan Reinhardt
Four Irish Brothers Winery Series, Book 4
Tule Publishing (July 16, 2020)
She wants a baby…he wants a family
Firefighter and paramedic Tierney Ashton has always been a bold adventurer, but at thirty-four she longs to embark on a new adventure—motherhood. But who will be the father? Although financially challenging, a sperm bank appears to be her best option. That is, until she shares her dream with her long-time pal, Brendan Flaherty.
Government analyst and world traveler Brendan Flaherty returns home to River’s Edge to help out at his family’s thriving winery and his brother’s new community theater. He also plans to finally achieve his lifelong goal of writing a novel. But when Tierney shares her wish, Bren offers to be her baby daddy—with one condition. Marriage.
It seems like a perfect contract, but will love get in the way?
A second chance romance set in a small town. The Baby Contract gives the friends to lover’s story a different twist. Interesting characters; both the main characters as well as secondary characters. A good story/series that focuses around a family of four brothers as they make their way back home to help with the family winery. This story is part of a series but can be read as a standalone, though I have enjoyed all four books in the series and recommend all of them.
