When John Drake meets Karissa Banks at Downtown Mall, he is grateful for the kindly Mrs. Claus who ministers to his Down syndrome sister in a crisis. He is later surprised to learn that in reality she is the competent director of People Possibilities, a resource company committed to the enrichment of mentally challenged individuals and their families. He begins to be charmed by her warmth and compassion.

Karissa Banks values her friendship with John and learns they have much in common despite their obvious financial differences. Will Karissa and John live “happily ever after” or will her insecurities and a vengeful former flame destroy it all?

KATHY EBERLY managed to bring to life her characters right off the pages of her book. They became so real that the reader feels a part of the friendship circle watching the events unravel. Her subject for the backdrop, that of obesity and bariatric surgery, was most unusual and not one seen in fiction, but it made for an engaging story. The various twists and turns, sorrows and joys added to the drama to make this a lovely debut novel. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
