Her Mother's Keeper by Nora Roberts

Her Mother's Keeper (Language of Love #20 - Pansy) - Nora Roberts

Gwen comes back home to Louisiana to end her mother's affair with a writer who she thinks is merely using her, and ends up falling for the guy herself.

A premise (and plot) that could be solved with a single conversation (between mother and daughter or the hero coming clean from the start), an idiotic heroine that thinks she's all that but in the end really is just a child, and a story so paper thin it was laughable.
I rolled my eyes at the dialogues, I rolled my eyes at the heroine's inner monologues...

This certainly hasn't aged well.
