Eleven-year-old Charlene is "not" impressed with Merry, her new guardian. Clearly the woman needs some major help in the parenting department. Their neighbor Jack could be the right man for the job--but it doesn't look as though the two grown-ups are ever going to get together without help. Jack recognizes a short-distance runner when he sees one, and Merry fits the bill. ...more

The Right Stuff at the Right Time
Footloose and free spirited Merry Olson didn't expect that the guardianship agreement she signed on a napkin a decade ago would ever result in her pulling up stakes in Minnesota and haring across the country to Oakburg, Virginia, but when the lawyer of her friend Charlie called and informed her of his sudden death, she had exactly one thought: to get to his daughter as soon as humanly possible and wrap her up in as much love as the eleven-year-old could stand. No
Uhh... This one was a cute-read... Very light and addicting too.... People who like nice breezy romance with little spice and wit ... you might enjoy it...

Merry Oslen - Oh my, my... she is ditzy and all but very very adorable person.. you are hopelessly falling for her... She has very generous heart and she is very open with opinions tooo... She gives her 500% to every person she meets... And you will read about why is the way she is.... Would love to have mother like her and would hope I too w

WARNINGS: I was walking around Wal-Mart with my iPod in front of me, reading this book and trying not to run into people or have people run into me. Yeah, that's how much I was addicted to reading this book. Also, there are a few sex scenes, but nothing that's R rated.

I liked Merry. She was "ditzy", sure. But she had her reasons. She never stayed in one place or job for long because she didn't want to get too attached. To a third party, she looked like a quitter who can't commit to anything. But

Merry feels she is up to the latest challenge life has thrown her way. An old friend has passed away and named her the guardian of his pre-teen daughter. Merry, being single and prone to hop from job to job, is OK with uprooting her life to take charge of an abandoned child. But this girl, Charlene, is nothing like she expected and she soon finds herself in need of a lot of help. Fortunately there is a kind, handsome, and willing man just next door who is more than able to be a shoulder she can ...more

She couldn’t imagine falling for a guy who wanted 2.3 kids and the minivan deal. The only kind of guy who’d likely tempt her would have to be as free-footed as she was. If that never happened, no loss. Life offered no end of adventures and interesting possibilities just as it was.

There was no way to cross those bridges until they came to them. Together.

Cute story. It seemed like there were some editing problems and times when what I read wasn't what was actually written, as well as some times when the scenes weren't completely fleshed out, but overall pretty good. I will definitely be reading other works by this author.

Oh Merry is so ditzy. But she has a big hearth and Jack, although is supposed to be the hero, needs rescuing. Without mentioning fierce little Charlene and the twins next door, everyone will benefit from Merry's love and kindness. A cute, addictive and well turned storyline.

Merry was too ditzy for me to like. And if you don't like the main character, it makes it hard to like the book, ya know?

Elizabeth Hesseltine
I needed something light and fun. This was perfect, and just in time for Valentine's Day. Merry was such a great character. Loved the ending!

I liked the book, but it wasn't terribly memorable. Boy meets girl, etc. Sweet love story. Perhaps the back of the book doesn't do it justice.

Sometime I just need to read a little romantic fluff. This was entertaining enough for a plane ride.

When a free-spirit is named guardian of a mixed-up 11-year-old, she falls in love with the neighbor who is really, well, not a spy, more like and ex-spy cryptographer. A cute book.

Yes, embarressing to admit, but super cute and, once again, a great Metrolink read to take your mind of the biting cold while waiting for the train.

A heart warming contemporary romance. Wish we did have to deal with premarital sex but at least the descriptive words were kept to a minimum!
Kim Reyes
The love story was great, thought I didn't really like the ending. The story was merely elaborated on the last part.

Great love story, no mystery, not much drama, just a good ole fashioned boy meets girl, they fall in love story. On to finish the other books I have started. :)

This was recommended to me and I thought it was shallow trash. Bad writing, bad storyline, bad period.
