I would like to thank the author for sending me a signed copy of her book! 🙂
Jon Blackwell is a divorced man with rambunctious twin five-year old daughters. He wants a nanny who has ranch experience, to care for his girls. But, he got Lydia Newbury, a woman from Philadelphia! Even though he plans to send Lydia packing, he doesn’t want a city woman, she turns out to be amazing. Not only does she take the twins in hand, by the way, they are adorable. She can cook and he finds himself falling for the nanny. What he doesn’t know, the nanny has a secret.
I liked this book. It was a fun read. It grabbed my attention and held it. I read it quickly. I didn’t want to put it down. I love the descriptions of the ranch and ranch life. Lydia arrives during calving season and I mean really, who wouldn’t want to hike out to the barn or the pasture and get friendly with a baby calf??? Jon Blackwell has a well trained border collie named Trout! I love collies! Trout and I would be fast friends. 🙂 Lydia is warm, friendly and sweet. She’s very good with the girls and I could see myself easily gaining weight eating her cooking. Of course, Jon is a grouchy cowboy . . . well, at first he is. Mmm. Lydia seems puzzled about his grouchy attitude, but she stays with it. When he fires her, he rattles off a list of responsibilities he would like his nanny to be responsible for. Well! He doesn’t want a nanny!!! He wants Wonder Woman!!! But our Lydia, is up for the challenge. She has two weeks to prove herself.
This is truly a heartwarming story. I enjoyed it. 4**** stars!
