Hank Brownlee needed help with his grieving father and the solution - a middle-aged housekeeper to be his companion. However, he accidentally hired a young widow with a little boy in tow. Of course he wanted to fire her on the spot, but upon seeing the life come back to father's eyes, hope for normalcy made him change his mind. But normalcy didn't include falling in love with the little family. Will their fears keep them apart?

Is it possible to be annoyed with your main characters? After reading this book, clearly you can be. The main problem with our intrepid hero and heroine was the fact that they were vastly immature despite their age and life experiences. For example, Hank would decide on his own that Maggie's son needed his own room and puppy without asking if it was okay. Mind you, they were not in a relationship. He gets scolded and then he does it again! Reading their thoughts was such a trial to wade through. But on the upside, every single side character was awesome. They made this book bearable. Everyone else were the level-headed ones and gave good advice which Hank and Maggie pretty much ignored. Without their involvement, there wouldn't even be a romance to read about. And plot-wise . . . there wasn't much going for it either. The story felt like it had no direction and events happened rather abruptly. The romance itself was awfully lacking. I was not feeling the love. They didn't really grow as a couple and the sudden proposal at the end felt rehearsed.

Note: This is a clean romance.

The writing and the side characters saved this book from being tough to read. In the end though, skip it. I couldn't just invest myself in the characters. Immature hero and heroine, flat plot, no humor and no romance made this book a total miss.

I gave this book two stars instead of one, just because a bad Judy Christenberry book isn't as bad as a stinker written by a lesser author. In other words, you could do much worse, I suppose.

At first I had hopes for this book. The general premise of the story had real potential. But then I started to wonder, "When is the character development going to start? Where are the descriptive passages that help you understand how the characters *feel*?"

They aren't there--at least not very much. It's like this was an outline for a book that should have been about twice as long in its finished state. The whole book had a distanced, sterile, unemotional quality to it.

The story itself *could* have been okay, but there wasn't enough convincing conflict or passion. Everyone was sort of . . . dull and one dimensional. We are too often *told*, rather than *shown*, why the characters react and feel the way they do. Physical descriptions of the main characters are barely there, so we can't even visualize what they look like. We didn't learn much about the characters' backgrounds, either, which would have helped us understand and empathise with whatever emotional "baggage" they had.

Usually in Christenberry's books we are treated to colorful characters with flaws and passions. We also have become accustomed to humor and conflict and getting emotionally sucked in to the character's lives--nope, not here.

I suspect that Judy Christenberry was given some sort of restriction from the publishers when she was working on this book--or *something* was holding her back, because this book just missed the mark completely. It was flat and dry and lacking that special component that makes her books usually so engaging and fun to read.

Bleh.

I have loved all of the books by Judy Christenberry.

So, I am sad to say that this book is by far her worst that I have read.

The summary is that Hank Brownlee and his father Carl are living on the family ranch after having lost Carl's wife the year before.

Hank decides that it would be good to hire a housekeeper to not only keep up his house and give him the good homecooked meals he has been without, but to see if his father Carl would take to the *mature* housekeeper and make Carl more interested in life.

He hires Maggie from her picture of her with her daughter and grandson.

However, when Hank returns from his week of hard work at his friend's ranch he discovers Carl playing with Timmy and that Maggie is the daughter (actually niece of the older lady in the picture. Hank becomes livid and explodes at this and demands that she leave that minute. Timmy is scared and about to cry as Maggie starts to pack their bags. Yet, Hank demands to know why she is upset at him. Her only answer is that he scared Timmy.

Of course he relents to a trial basis.

He yells at Maggie for cleaning his room and doing his laundry.

He gets upset because his father is smiling again.

He gets upset that cooks good and makes dessert.

He gets upset because she is up before him and ready to make him breakfast.

Then we have the aunt come to visit for a day or two.

Carl takes her to see the country and Hank demands that she leave his house, but makes it seem that the aunt and Maggie are making this up.

Maggie meanwhile is getting yelled at by Hank for cleaning his room and doing his laundry. However, the aunt had done it not knowing that Hank and specifically told Maggie to NOT clean his room.

The aunt leaves after being there for a couple of days and returns home.

Carl discover's that Maggie and her aunt were telling the truth.

Carl says he loves the aunt and wants to visit her where she lives.

He takes off after her.

Four days later the aunt and Carl call to say they are going to marry.

Suddenly the day of the wedding Hank discovers that he feel in love with Maggie the day he saw her.

They kiss end of story.

That was exactly how it was.

No character development.

Not even the child was likeable in this story.

He argued with his mother.

Hank even told Timmy something and said they were to keep it from his mother.

Sorry, but this story was just awful and I can't tell anyone in good faith anything other than the truth.

I will say read it and discover for yourself.

I just did NOT see the style of writing I usually do when I read a Judy Christenberry book and I have red them all.
