Monica Kittelski runs a day care center in town and does a great job with the children. JB Edwards (Jeremy) finds himself instantly attracted to her when he goes to pick up his sick nephew from the day care center. This instant attraction is felt by both parties and it was fun watching it turn into a deeper relationship, where each was looking out for the interest of the other first. Jeremy was such an all-around great guy, who had to struggle himself with the idea of not having any of his own children as well. The loving advice given to Monica by several people was also well done.
This was just an all-around enjoyable story to read. The cover on this book I think sets the mood of this story; a loving couple who could have fun with each other, but who also had to deal with some very tough decisions in their life. I also thought the whole adoption dilemma for Monica was a real issue and liked the honesty of her thoughts on why she was hesitant to adopt. Well done Marianne Evans!
This is book #3 in the Woodland series and can easily be read as a stand alone, although characters from the first two books are a part of this story. Looking forward to the next book in this series, Hearts Key.
