Dating, Dining, and Desperation

(The second book in the Dear Daphne series)
A novel by

Daphne Ballinger has learned to accept her deceased, eccentric aunt's strange request that she marry in order to inherit her estate, along with taking over her aunt's hometown paper's advice column.

But knowing and accepting that God's will be done becomes harder when a new neighbor, a divorced socialite, learns of Daphne's predicament and takes on the task of finding her the perfect man, even if it includes speed dating. When God does open Daphne's heart, it is instead to take in a young girl left parentless and in the care of her dying grandmother. It may be a temporary arrangement until the girl's uncle returns from the Marines, but God uses Daphne to speak His heavenly love and protection into the life of the child -- whom Daphne soon discovers has a very handsome and single uncle.
