"A Class of Her Own" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “When Laura Chapman’s husband of over twenty years passes away, she finds herself the sole provider for two teenage children, lonely and frightened, and determined to return to college to obtain a degree. Then she lands in the same history class with her daughter and finds herself offending the toughest professor on campus. Professor Andrew Dougherty, still a bachelor at forty-seven, has sworn off women. His heart was broken years earlier by a skittish fiancee. Just when Laura feels that she has no alternative but to drop out of school due to stress and finances, Andrew begins to realize that it is time for the battle to cease between them. He is beginning to discover that his feelings for Laura Chapman are not at all what he thought at first.”

My personal Rating-
This was a sweet read filled with misunderstandings! (Aren’t they so fun to read about and not be a part of? ;) ) Not my favorite by this author, but it was a quick, fun read! :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
