Very sweet story about finding love when you least expect it.
Sarah has had a rough life. Growing up in the foster system she got lucky to get “taken in” by a wealthy couple, Pamela and Jonathan. Pamela was the closest thing Sarah had to a mom. When she dies suddenly in an accident Sarah is heartbroken. Luckily, Pamela loved Sarah just as much and makes sure Jonathan takes care of her. Wanting to follow his wife’s wishes, Sarah becomes the girls live-in nanny, helping him raise Jessica and Nicole, and pays for her education to NYU.
Sadly, Sarah life takes another rough blow when she loses Jonathan in the 9/11 attacks. Pamela and Jonathan, knowing that no one would love their girls as much as Sarah, they leave her and the girls everything. They ask that she please adopt and raise them. Jessica and Nicole become her whole world. She finishes her degree at NYU and becomes a writer with her first traditionally published book.
Adam was just going to first day of work, running late, like most people in NYC. His attention gets distracted by the beautiful dark-haired stranger walking with two little girls. Not knowing why he is attracted to this beautiful stranger he takes to follow her but then he hears the first plane hit. The world stops and his beautiful stranger is lost. That day not only saved his life but changed it. Changing everything he planned on doing, he goes back to school and becomes a social worker. Helping kids in the system find good homes. Safe homes. He never forgets his beautiful stranger.
A chance encounter brings their two worlds together and begins this beautiful and sweet love story. I enjoyed the story that Mrs. Lykins wrote. She really does have a knack for capturing the sweetness and innocence in her characters. Her writing can come across a tad formal and staccato-ish but you can try to look past it if you like the sweetness of clean romance. Sarah has some spunk to her which was a great plus those two little girls, Nicole and Jessica, had me laughing. I like my books with a bit more drama and steam but this was a great, short decompress book.
