Kerri Sullivan is looking for a miracle.
Her son Cody is dying from a deadly progressive disease and
the doctor who was just days away from finding a cure no
longer has the lab or the funds to continue his research. A
mother who refuses to give up, Kerri hatches a plan to ask
Nathan King to donate the money needed to again finance the
scientific labs with personnel and equipment so a cure for her
sonís disease can be found. Since his son died of the same
disease, Kerri just knows Nathan will help her. She couldnít
be more wrong.
Nathan King could care less about Kerri
or her requests. He just wants to get the county commission
to fund the dynamic and very expensive condos he is trying to
get approval for. He does not have time to be a bleeding

embarrassing him in the public eye. But like a true male, he
has absolutely no idea the power of a motherís love.

kept me from becoming too morose. Her faith was never ending
and if I could be half the mother she was, I would be a fine
Grab the tissues because
Accidentally Yours is nothing if not a tear jerker.
Tearing up more times than if I was cutting onions, I just
calmly wiped my eyes and kept reading. Throughout the entire
book, I was never sure whether the miracle that Kerri needed
would happen, but I still couldnít put Accidentally
Yours down. Susan Mallery has taken emotion to a new
level with Accidentally Yours and while it was a
very tough book to read, it was also astonishingly wonderful.
