Nice to Come Home To by Rebecca Flowers
I admit it.
It was the cover.

(And I covet that dress on the left - and the body to wear it)

Pru Whistler loses her job and her boyfriend in one fell swoop, leaving her knocking around Washington, DC with little direction and no sense of self. Enter her sister, her niece, a cat, a boy, a new job...and suddenly Pru finds herself surrounded by what she wants - a family, albeit a surrogate one.
