it was amazing

Daisy Sorenson gives the word stubborn a new meaning. Daisy and Jack, a winning combination!! There's a little something for everyone in this book and if you've been reading the series you get to catch up with the rest of the Sorensons.

Daisy, single Mom with 3 kids, stubborn as they come, refuses to ask for help and badly burned by her ex. The story opens with them piled in a tow truck headed to Paytons family's summer house on Lake Tahoe with Aunt Glenda in tow as well. Oh and it's pouring rain. The kids are cute as heck, each with their own personality and they shine right through the pages. Confusion reigns supreme when after getting the kids settled,Daisy soaks in the tub and donning her snug fuzzy robe and ill matching fuzzy socks grabs a glass of wine and goes out to sit on the deck, when coming back in there's a man, a very good looking man standing in the kitchen. Daisy drops her glass, not wanting to scream to wake up the kids and this man looks suspiciously like the LT Governor of Utah. Because he is. He's brought his young daughter Lily, along with their pup Oliver ( cuteness overload). He'd called Paytons mother to ask about staying there, their families are long time friends, and here they are. The daughter Lily is still pouting about having to be there, Jack is facing being slotted into the Governors position because the Gov. has taken a Cabinet appt. and everyone is scrambling. Jack just wants time with Lily before all this hits the media. He's a widower. Daisy and Jack decide to get some sleep and make decisions in the morning.

Morning comes and between Daisy's baking and the kids in love with Ollie. Doorbell rings and it's the press, the ensuing scene is hilarious and you have to read the book to appreciate out of the mouths of babes. Between Paul and Natalie... then we have the pouting duo of Jenna and Lily, meanwhile Jack and Daisy are juggling things and trying for some kind of balance. The spin they (his press secretary)
puts on this whole family scene is they're engaged. With that Jack will help Daisy with her bank papers to get a loan to open her own bakery. Daisy doesn't like asking or taking and she's the most determined person on the planet. Jack oversteps a few times and Daisy sets him straight but it's lovely to see these two slowly fall for each other, despite all Daisy's fears.

The story continues on after they arrive back home, there are some twists and turns. Benny is getting married to Henry so that's coming up soon. Jack promises to teach Paul how to tie his bowtie because his Dad said he would and never did. Jack is just struck at what a jerk her ex is. Her promises Paul he will teach him or be there on the day of the wedding to tie it for him. Well since one shoe already dropped when the second one did, I wasn't sure which way things were going to go. The emotion level was all over the place and a couple times a wanted to whack them both.

This was a great ending to the series, I loved the book, loved it. Great story, the characters were perfection, right down to the children. I loved the dog. It's a great read. Best book of the series!
Great story Ashlee!!!
