Stand-In Mommy by Nancy Moore!
Stand-In Mommy by Nancy Moore is the second story in Volume One of Fiction Shorts, The Writer's Chest. It is a light romantic fiction that is sure to not only entertain but leave you believing there could be a happy ever after.
When Cynthia Bowling decides she has had it with the dating scene and her on-again, off-again boyfriend starts to get on her last nerve, she makes a startling announcement to her best friend - she is swearing off men for the next six months! She refuses to listen to the well-meaning advice of her friends and family, throws caution to the wind and enrolls in a teaching exchange program which takes her hundreds of miles from the busy streets of Miami to a small southern town in central Arkansas.
Her new life comes complete with a cozy little house, a job and a next door neighbor who is not only handsome but recently widowed with a troubled young daughter and a mother-in-law who is out to take his child away.
Adjusting to life in a new town isn't nearly as difficult as dealing with being away from family, friends and a persistent old boyfriend that refuses to take 'no' for an answer, but her hunky neighbor, Jack, and his shy daughter, Maddy, wiggle their way into her heart and make her feel welcome. So welcome that as the exchange program comes to an end, Cynthia starts to have second thoughts about returning to her old life and finds that leaving her new found happiness is more of a struggle than she could ever imagine.
Is Jack Dawson the man of her dreams or is he just looking for a mommy for his troubled daughter? Does she have what it takes to help Maddy break out of the shell she has been in since her mother's death? Is Cynthia the woman who can help him make peace with his late wife's conniving and over-bearing mother?
