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 and a truck is following her and then parks. Tara is getting ready to run when Jack DiMarco convinces her to listen to him for 5 min and stays back from her. Jack introduces himself saying he was doing a favor for his sister who is a P.I. and got a kidnapping case and through a software this is what they thought Haley would like now. He handed Tara the paper and said he was on the way to her school to talk to her but saw her on the street and thought it was her. Jack told Tara about Haley's abduction when she was 3 years old. Tara said it does look like her but she has seen her baby pictures, and they have lived here for her whole life. Tara convinces him that she could not be Haley. Jack then leaves calls his sister and let her know the bad news. Then Jack tracked down the Dr. who was vacationing and took his records wanting him to operate on him so he can be a professional ball player again. He had been called up to big league twice and pitched 3 games before being sent back to the miners. The doctor told him that the third time is shoulder would not help best bet was physical therapy not surgery. That is same answer other doctors have given him but Jack plans to beat the odds. He decided to spend the time healing hear by the ocean. So he rents right on the beach. He goes to grocery store and runs into Tara and her foster brother Danny when Danny runs into Jack in the store where he was throwing a fit because he wanted chips. Danny has down syndrome and likes Jack and tells him about his camp he is going to and invites him. Tara has started to questioning herself but she has had nightmares about a lady shaking and yelling at her. Plus her mom does not have any pictures of her when she was a baby. Her mom lost her husband and daughter in ocean and still grieves 30 years later. Jack is wanting to date Tara for himself and he can only do so much exersing his shoulder so he does volunteer at Danny camp because he likes kids. Also a few other people in Tara's life wants to set her up to date Jack. It is a good book to read and based on this book I will read more from Darlene in the future. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 09/03/2012 PUB Harlequin Imprint Harlequin Superromance
