What if the one person you can’t bear to be with is also the one person you can’t bear to be without? Jamie McClintock is a free-spirited artist and single mother who has at last found peace and freedom sharing a farmhouse with an elderly man and his young grandson. But when the old man dies suddenly, her idyllic country life comes to a halt, as the old man’s estranged son, Nate, returns to claim the house and his child. Jamie can’t stand Nate’s sick, arrogant, salesman-like approach to parenthood, and Nate is irritated by her laid-back, earth-mother view of life, not to mention her fondness for artsy knitted vests. This is definitely not love at first sight. But as they try to work out the logistics of raising their two little boys—reluctantly enduring everything from games of hide-and-seek with Daddy’s BlackBerry to breakfast of headless teddy bear pancakes—their lives become hopelessly intertwined. It’s not until they’ve gone their separate ways that they both realize that sometimes love sneaks through the door you were sure you’d slammed long ago, and that rescue from the past can come from unlikeliest places.

    " I thought this book was a fun summer read. It seemed like it was going to be really predictable (and it was) but it still was entertaining and romantic. "

    " A light, fun, quick read. The references to CT were nice. "

    " I think I would give this 3.5 stars. The basic story line is pretty predictable: boy and girl find each other and fall in love. However, the way the story weaves and develops was not overly predictable and it seemed pretty realistic. I ended up liking it more than I thought it would. I liked that the female main character was a pretty strong character. Overall I liked it. I would probably read something else by this author. "

    " Enjoyable, light read. The twists and turns of the primary relationship became annoying by the end, like a sit-com, and the immaturity of the characters became grating. But basically a well-written story and fun to read. "
