The Best Mistake
by Nora Roberts

A classic tale about finding the man of your dreams right under your nose.

Ex-model Zoe Fleming is now a hardworking single mom – and she wouldn’t have it any other way, though she would like a tenant to share household expenses. What she gets is confirmed bachelor J. Cooper McKinnon. Coop quickly befriends her son and in no time has the reluctant Zoe charmed, too. But she has zero room in her life for a man. Could this be a recipe for disaster, or the best mistake she’s ever made?

This is a first-time regular print hardcover edition of a title previously available as a mass market paperback.
