Well, not easily, anyway. And not without a few little white lies.Because the truth is, no one in her family has any clue that she’s returned to the job of her youth. Which means no late nights working beside her husband at the kitchen table while the kids watch television. Although, when you think about it, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.Because when your job is fighting demons, taking your work home with you is a really, really bad idea … “Kenner continues to put her fun, fresh twist on mommy-lit with another devilishly clever book.”—Booklist

And as a slow smile crept over her face, she shifted her stance. Not much, but it was enough. More, I was ready.

After a few more minutes of silence, David broke it for me. “You have a good heart, Katie-kins.” “What did you just call me?” I asked, my voice remarkably stable. “I called you Kate.
