Happily Ever After by Christina Cole
When Anne Hopkins accepts a position as a caretaker for troubled nine-year-old Rowena Mather, her own childhood experiences help her make a strong, emotional connection with the little girl. But she's wary of Rowena's father. Men can't be trusted, she's learned. Memories of her father's violent nature -- and Rowena's whispered secrets -- arouse suspicions. She will do whatever she must to protect the little girl.
Like his daughter, George Mather is struggling with grief and loneliness. He swore to his dying wife that he'd never marry again. Now as Anne comes into his life and helps his family, he's drawn to her -- and caught in a trap of his own making.
Together, Anne and George must find a way to break free from the past. They must open their eyes to the truth and come to trust one another before they can live...Happily Ever After.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a sweet little, regular romance. It's not the typical dramatic scorcher, but it's not horrible. It's just.. Meh. I like books with a BANG and this one seemed to be lacking it. Not to say it was a bad book! It was just.. vanilla lol. If you're looking for easy reading without the emotional rollercoaster, you're going to love this book.
