Perfect town, sensible unmarried Sunday School teacher, orphaned boy - mix thoroughly. Then try and add the boy's long-lost uncle, a big-city cop and watch the feathers fly! Very enjoyable.

Daisy finds a troubled boy in her garage and is willing to fight for him. If only his long lost uncle weren't so attractive. A good, fun read.

Set in the sleepy town of Trinity Cove, Va., Woods's newest (Stolen Moments, etc.) is a straightforward tale of love and redemption. For the first time in all her 30 years, sensible Sunday school teacher Daisy Spencer is rebelling. Having recently moved out of her father's house, Daisy defies Robert "King" Spencer, the self-proclaimed patriarch of the town, further by taking in the recently orphaned, mischief-making Tommy, whom she found hot-wiring her car. King and her brothers, Bobby and Tucker, are convinced that Tommy will not only steal her silver but also break her heart, and they make it their mission to track down the boy's remaining relatives. The only relation they find is Tommy's long-lost uncle, Walker Ames, a tough D.C. cop who, according to his ex-wife, never devoted enough time to her or their two children. Unwilling to fail at parenthood again, Walker makes the necessary adjustments to his busy schedule to spend time with Tommy and his maddeningly sassy foster parent. The relationship between Daisy and Walker sparks, and Tommy's interactions with his two guardians are sweetly satisfying. Clever characters and snappy, realistic dialogue add zest to an all-too-predictable story line, making this a delightful read for contemporary romance readers.

Sherryl Woods is a new author for me. I enjoyed this book as well as the other 2 in the series. I was home sick and read the entire trilogy in 2 days. The characters are charming and fun. It had laugh out loud moments. I enjoyed the small town feel, although there were moments when I felt like they all live on one block. The siblings in the series related to each other in a realist way and the children were children and not small adults. It was a solid read.
