A Stranger in the Family, a western romance (Bardville, Wyoming Trilogy, Book 1) by Patricia McLinn
I downloaded A Stranger in the Family on a whim and I'm really glad I did. It's a feel good read, the literary equivalent of a glass of wine and a big box of chocolates. The story starts when Bodie Smith discovers that he fathered a child which was subsequently adopted. He traces the family and, without telling them who he is, tries to connect with the son he has never known. Gradually he becomes a part of the family, growing particularly close to his son's adopted sister. However, their relationship is threatened when the truth inevitably comes out. If you like a bit of escapism that you can read in one sitting then you can't go wrong with this one.
