In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.

When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her.

Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she's determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a song in the good doctor's heart?

 Veteran teacher Kathryn Shay knows teenagers and puts that knowledge into creating a series about successful women who were once troubled teens. 


“Author Kathryn Shay has a gift for boldly presenting challenging life situations that offer no easy solutions. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT once again exhibits Shay's deep compassion for her flawed, yet marvelously portrayed characters. A sympathetic, heart-warming tale that presents families, adoptions, and love with beauty and sparkle.” Word Weaving


Paige Kendrick was one of the first residents of Serenity House, a home for troubled teens in the Southern Tier of New York. Pregnant, orphaned, and in charge of her younger sister, Paige was terrified about her future. After giving up her child for adoption, she not only cares for her sister, but becomes a well-respected pediatrician in an upscale practice. Her life is fine until she meets pushy and full-of-himself Ian Chandler, an OB/GYN, who’s starting an inner city clinic. He wants Paige to work with him, deal with teen moms like the one she used to be, and devote her professional time to his project. But when their relationship turns personal, and Ian wants Paige in his bed, and his future, she balks at the commitment. Ian won’t stop, though, until he convinces her they were meant to be together.


"Shay’s novel is a sheer joy for readers looking for a contemporary story with honest-to-goodness issues. Paige comes from a troubled place, and has serious trust issues. Ian has had a much more stable life, but he too finds himself in a lonely place - working through the grief that continues to linger one year after the death of his adoptive parents." The Romance Reader


"Kathryn Shay pens a poignant winner with PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, Paige Kendrick’s journey from emotionally scarred teenager to an accomplished woman who learns to love, laugh and enjoy life." RT Book Reviews
