Keeper and Kid by Edward Hardy

James Keeper co-owns the antique salvage store Love and Death. Four years ago, he got divorced from Cynthia, a pastry chef and started a new life, moving from Boston to Providence. Now, he gets a call from Cynthia's mother, Joan, saying that she's in the hospital and needs to see him. Then he finds himself the father to a three-year-old, Leo, that he never knew he had. Leo's presence changes every aspect of Keeper's life, including his relationship with his girlfriend, Leah and the business partnership with his childhood friend, Tim. Even though it features a father, Keeper and Kid is a charming, cozy novel that appeals to readers who enjoy books about women's lives that involve parenthood.
