Redefining who we are in our family takes courage and an indestructible sense of humor.

Being the middle child is never easy, but thirty-six-year-old Jill Bendel is about to find out just how hard that job is when her mother throws away her sensible pumps, packs up her collection of classical music and runs away from home.

Longtime wife and mother Ruth Bendel loves her family but hates her life. Husband Richard doesn't even know how the steam iron works, let alone how a woman works. When Ruth's last nerve snaps, she finally does what she's wanted to do so many times before-she gets an apartment, a job, a new life and new friends.

How will her pampered family survive ?

Who will take care of her son Doug's daughters when he flies off for a romantic week with his wife? How can youngest daughter Melissa contemplate getting pregnant now that she's the child of a broken home? How is Jill going to juggle the demands of her own marriage, her kids, her siblings and her career while simultaneously trying to get her parents to reconcile? Why is it that when things fall apart, everyone expects Jill to put them back together?

Maybe she ought to run away from home, too.

 Book Three of the Daddy School series, originally published in 1998. Dennis Murphy’s rambunctious seven-year-old twins swear he’s the best lawyer in Arlington, Connecticut. They don’t make his job easy, however. When the nanny he hires to watch the twins walks out on them one afternoon while Dennis is meeting with the opposing attorney concerning a libel case, Dennis is forced to bring his work home with him.

 

Gail Saunders is a lawyer in the public defender’s office. When her former client, a Russian immigrant who’s had a few scrapes with the law in the past, implores her to sue the city’s newspaper for libel after his name appears in a front page article in connection with a series of thefts, she agrees to represent him, even if it means going up against Murphy and his prestigious, wealthy law firm, and even if it means she has to deal with his wild children once their nanny goes AWOL. Gail isn’t the sort to become all warm and fuzzy around children—especially imps like Sean and Erin Murphy. She’s missing the maternal gene, and the romantic gene as well. Just because Murphy is smart and funny and sexy as hell doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for him. She knows his seductive charms are merely tactics in his effort to win the libel suit.

 

Being the sister of one of the founders of the Daddy School, Gail believes Murphy could use a few lessons in how to be a better father. But she’s got a few things to learn, too, and Dennis Murphy might just be the man to teach her.
