Today's REVOLVING BOOK is BABY BLUES AND WEDDING BELLS by USA Today bestselling author PATRICIA McLINN.
A Stranger in His Own Town, to His Own Daughter
When the bad boy of Tobias, Wisconsin, returns home, the repercussions reach far and deep.
Handsome and charming Zach Corbett left the small town eight years ago to make his own way… and never looked back.
Not at the pregnant ex-girlfriend he left behind. Or at what his departure might mean for his brother Steve, whose wedding was put on hold to raise a baby.
Tensions are high, and there’s only one person who might be able to redeem the Corbetts’ troubled family reunion, a woman who has truly seen Zach since they were kids.
Fran Dalton has always seen beyond the bravado to the pain in those beautiful baby blues of Zach’s. Now, she can see he’s different. And, unlike when they were kids, now she’s grabbed his attention.
If only she can draw Zach into a loving relationship, and prove how much he’s changed, his fractured family might just find it in their hearts to forgive. And heal.
Can Zach and Fran escape the past’s hold to make a future?

Zach contemplated the figure on the other side of Corbett House’s front threshold. A girl with dark blonde hair and intense blue eyes stood in the opening, looking him over.
“Who are you?” he asked.
She glared. “I don’t hafta tell you that. I don’t hafta tell you anything. Who are you?”
He grinned. The kid had spirit, that was for sure. “Fair enough. I’m Zach — Zach Corbett.”
“I’ve heard of you.”
How could a kid this young sound so disapproving?
As fast as the question came, the answer formed. This was Tobias, Wisconsin, where the urge to gossip about the Corbetts was piped in along with the drinking water.
He gave the kid the cocky grin he’d used so often in Tobias. It felt a little rusty.
“Of course you’ve heard of me. I’m the no-good black sheep of the Corbetts and I used to live here.” He looked past the kid into the wide hall with the polished wood stairway. He wasn’t sure how much he could actually see of the dim interior, and how much came from memory. “A long, long time ago.”
“Eight and a half years ago.”
His gaze snapped back to the girl. Something in her voice sounded sharper than gossip, something personal.
“That’s right. How’d you know that?”
“I know a lot of things. I know who you are. I’ve seen your picture. You left seven months before I was born — because I’m Nell Corbett. And you’re my no-good black sheep father.”
