Helen Decatur’s clock is ticking. She
has a very successful law practice, and along with her best
friends, Dana Sue and Maddie, owns and runs a day spa. The
problem is that she’s in her forties, still single, and
lately, she’s been thinking about having a baby. Only her
lifestyle doesn’t seem conducive to starting a family.
That’s where Erik Whitney fits in. Erik is the chef at the
restaurant Dana Sue owns on her own. Even though they argue
every time they are together, sparks of a different kind fly
between Helen and Erik. Helen has a lot of decisions to
make. Some of them she shouldn’t be making on her own.
Helen and Erik’s relationship lacks
chemistry in Feels Like Family. Because they
hide it, and because of Helen’s secret pregnancy plans, it
feels more like friends with benefits rather than a true
romance. Serenity, South Carolina takes on a soap opera
like feel in Feels Like Family. Divorce,
single mothers, an abusive ex-husband, a secret pregnancy,
and a marriage without love become a bit too much for one
small town. The realism present in all of Sherryl Woods
stories is there, which I love, but it’s a bit overwhelming.
I would love to read about Annie and Ty. They could have a
wonderful story to tell.
