Jules Summers, a proverbial Jonah, runs from family, career, and
neighborhood. Where’s she going? To find a place of healing for wounds
so deep, she shuts the door against the very One who restores. But God
never abandons and a kindergarten angel arrives, towing her father,
Rhett Carsen. Rhett Carsen vows never to marry again. He redoubles his
efforts to raise his motherless daughter alone, but runs into trouble
when work sends him traveling. His daughter instantly bonds with
newcomer Jules Summers, who in turn assists him in caring for his
daughter. She seems like the answer to his prayers—an instant live-in
nanny. Yet, why does she captivate his every thought? They work together
as a team to care for Rhett’s child. But is “practicality” the only
thing God has planned for these two? Or could there be a whole lot more?

Poor thing, why should talking about family upset her?
Oh, her husband was cheating? And what did his mistress have?
How old is she, and her daughter?
I so don't like his coworkers already.
Omigod, this is such a cute kid!
Ew, how long is he planning to let those dishes sit?
Someone stab Gary. There's helpful, and then there's nosy meddling.
Hoist by your own petard, buddy.
She's going to be a grandma at thirty-nine? Whoa.
Geez, Melanie, could you be more obvious? And brainy kids can play sports too, you know.
Interesting prayer chain Andi's school has, haha!
Wow, he has a nice house!
What does "keep your carbon" mean?
It's not an insult if she's actually about to become a grandma.
Jeez, how does she function on so little food?
Damn! And it's spooky how she knew something was wrong.
What about her ex's new baby?
Ugh, her mother and sister are horrible. No wonder she moved so far away.
Sheesh, who is her mother, Elizabeth Taylor?
That schmuck! Okay, now I'm glad he's dead, and I'm not sorry.
Um, can't she just be a live-in housekeeper?
She sure is fertile.
Will purchase copies for family and friends.
Rhett Carson had a sweet young daughter who missed having a mother. Her mother had died when she was very young and Rhett had sworn off marriage. His marriage had not been a happy one but Andi kept praying for a mother every single night. She had made friends with Jules, a woman with a difficult pasta d she wanted Jules to be her new mommy.
This is a sweet and clean story about Christian values and forgiveness and learning to trust again. I found myself cheering for this young family to succeed. My only criticism is that the story resolved very quickly. I would have liked a little more development of their story at the end.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
