Here's the blurb for the book:
When you start reading, you wonder that anyone can be so shut in, so unable to reach his own child, but then you get to know him along with the heroine and realize there’s a wonderful man inside.
Grant Braeburn might be insanely rich, but emotionally, he’s bankrupt. No surprise, then, that his marriage failed...or that he’s somehow never really connected with his three-year-old daughter. Then his ex is killed in a car crash, leaving Grant a woefully inept single father. Haley will never want for anything material, but how on earth do you explain to a small child that she’ll never see Mommy again?
Desperate, he turns to Mia Vaccaro, Justine’s best friend and Haley’s “aunt”...even though he and Mia basically can’t stand each other. But the down-to-earth lawyer-turned-party planner will do anything to help the little girl she loves with all her heart, even if it means sharing a mansion with a man whose favorite beverage might as well be O positive...and who has a secret that could not only shatter Mia’s faith in her old friend, but, as Mia and Grant find common ground in their concern for a hurting, confused child, could destroy the future, as well.
This book popped on my radar because of this review at TGTBU – which review is much more in-depth and detailed than mine so check it out.
Great book. Two thumbs up. I’ll be hunting up more Karen Templeton books in the future. (This book kicks off a mini-series - book 2 is about Mia's brother).
