If he smiled, he’d be handsome. But if he smiled, she’d be even more freaked out.

The set-up:

An injured ballplayer shows up in a small tourist town to track down a famous orthopedic surgeon. He’s also on a mission to help his private investigator sister solve a cold case.

The hits:

Um…. Gimme a second, here…. Still thinking…. Nope. Nada. Nil. Nothin’. Shut-out.

The wild pitches:

Ugh. Did I say that already? This book was ALL OVER THE PLACE, trying to do and be way too much. This see
Good book. Jack has come to the Eastern Shore to see a doctor about surgery on his shoulder so he can go back to being a baseball pitcher. While he's there, his sister has asked him to check into the identity of a woman who may have been abducted as a child. He does, and Tara says it can't be her since she's not the right age and has seen baby pictures of herself. Jack accepts this, then goes on to see the doctor who tells him he can't help, that surgery won't make a difference. Jack doesn't acc ...more
The Truth About Tara by Darlene Gardner
4 STARS I wondered how this book would end, I could not see away, but Darlene Gardner did. I wish I could write about characters you like and want things to work out for them. Danny and Susie you just want to hug them. These characters that you meet I really enjoyed reading about them. This novel deals with some hard subjects in a respectful way. Thier is a few love scene but does not get into much detail. Tara Greer is walking to school where she teaches

What would you do if everything you thought you knew about yourself was thrown in to question?

That is the fundamental question of this book for both main characters... I am not going to give much away as I think you should read this to see the answers but the main pair are definitely made for each other even if she tries to fight it from day one.

Tara is a PE teacher and a devoted daughter. She is the kind of person you would love to have as a friend because you know she will be true although I f

ISBN: 9780373718030
Jack DiMarco had followed a doctor to the island off the Chesapeake shore in hopes of having him do an arm surgery so he could play baseball again. After talking to him he was back on the mainland with the advice to find a different job in life or rehab as another had done.
Earlier he had stopped a PE school teacher on her way to work and showed her the picture from his sister Maria, a PI of what a missing 3 yo child would look like 30 y
This one didn't work for me. Subject matter hit a trigger and I was unable to get into this story from the viewpoints of the main characters.
