The English American by Alison Larkin
Sometimes I just need a little fluff, and this adult contemporary romance worked for me. Pippa Dunn knows she was adopted in England. In her late 20s, she thinks that meeting her birth parents might fix things in her life, so she tracks them down via the adoption agency in America. At first she is amazed by her mother. Billie is SO much like her! But Billie isn't what she seems, and neither is Pippa's father. Of course, there's a love story, too, and Pippa plays the typical female who can't see what hot, gorgeous man is right in front of her. Nothing new here, but a good airplane/beach/lake read.
