My Thoughts:  This is my book clubs choice for January.  It is also a new author for me.  I loved this book, it's full of great characters.  A. J. is very disgruntled about life.  He thinks everything is lost when his Tamerline book is stolen.  He has just about given up on everything.  But, a very special package is left at his bookstore.  It's a baby!  A. J. isn't quite sure what to do with this baby.  He has lots of help with raising Maya.  The chef of police, which is a good friend of A. J.'s helps.  His Sister-in-law helps and of course all the town folks help out too.  The book is all about A. J. and Maya's life.  All the wonderful things that life gives you and A. J. finds out for himself.  Very touching book and I truly enjoyed it very much.
