Engaging and heartfelt story of second chances and finding love in unexpected places. 

Alli Krenek moves back to her hometown while navigating a career change, she unexpectedly accepts a job nannying for Jake Walker's two children, despite her complicated history with Jake. I liked that Jake and Alli were able to quickly move past what happened when they were kids, and develop an honest friendship. Allie is amazing with the children and does a great job giving them loving structure.

There was so much great interaction throughout, I loved how Alli and Jake shared a strong faith and were devoted to putting it into action in their lives. Jake's mom is also really supportive of Alli working with the kids. Alli is a wonderful caregiver, with a big heart for others. 

Overall, a fully enjoyable read from beginning to end, I connected with the characters quickly and found that it ended far sooner than I wanted. A wonderful read!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
