Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s loveable mutt to caring for his rambunctious kids. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad…
With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family–until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day…
I haven't read this series before and coming in this late was a bit intimidating. I was worried about understanding story lines and caring about characters. But i had nothing to fear at all. from the moment Grace fell into the arms of Dr. Josh Scott and into his life that let's be honest is a chaotic insanity I was in love. The characters in Josh's life his young son toby and his young adult sister Anna are so well written with issues and places of their own that you feel a part of the family from page 1. I just couldn't imagine not loving reading about them.
The friends that Grace has made in her new town Mallory and Amy add just the right amount of girl time and fun to the book. they were probably main characters in past books, or shared more of themselves, but I felt i knew enough of them to get the support and compassion for Grace. Watching people fall in love will always warm my heart, and watching people grow gives me strength. You can only imagine when finishing this book that I felt like a heart 3 sizes to big hulk!
