Sometimes the most unexpected love can be exactly what a heart needs…
When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall’s PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly’s past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny–and Penny’s handsome father–tugs at Carly’s heart.
Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny’s nanny.
Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?

Y’all this book was amazing! You’ll get The sound of Music vibe and I love the sound of music, which is a plus. This book is much more intense than I thought it was going to be. So be warned! This is a story about bad decisions, forgiveness, trust and faith. We are not perfect! We make mistakes, but we have to remember no sin is too big to be forgiven. The author brings us a wonderful, contemporary romance about learning to live with the choices we make. This book story also addresses the issue of fetal alcohol disorders in great detail. The author points out that education is the key to preventing it. I couldn’t put the book down; I had to know what was going to happening next. I recommend that you read this book once or twice or more.
