Every momma earns a star in her crown for raising a child, but Jemmabeth
Chase will get a few extra (and a boatload of worry) for raising

Gorgeous Annalisa Turner has everything: hot looks, plenty of
money, boyfriends galore, and a great family. Sure, she’s sometimes
sweeter than smart, and her brother, Drew, frequently reminds her of
that. Her sister, Bets, thinks it’s her job to play watchdog over
Annalisa’s life. And her parents, architect Spencer and artist Jemmabeth
Chase, always worry about the dumb things she sometimes does. Then
Annalisa secretly determines to go after the one thing she’s missing — a
relationship with her birth mother, Missy Blake. Problem is, Missy’s in
prison for kidnapping Annalisa as a baby and then trying to shoot her
adoptive mom. Missy can’t be all that bad, Annalisa tells herself. But
when Missy is released from prison, and Annalisa launches her mission,
aided by a quirky, retired postmistress, she might discover that
everybody in Connelly County, Texas, is right after all.
