MacKenzie Knightley is the best criminal trial attorney in Damson County, but he has no defense against petite, peppery Sidonie Lindstrom, a foster mom who’s moved into the farmhouse where Mack and his brothers grew up.
Sid is grieving the loss of her brother, worried she’s about to lose her foster son, and in no mood for romantic nonsense when Mack drives up the lane. And yet, he’s good with her horses, good with her foster son, and just the sort of solid, trustworthy, guy she might fall for—until she learns that he’s not at all what he appears to be.
I didn’t read the first two books in the series but I don’t think that’s relevant to my thoughts on this story. It came across as a standalone book.
Now for my thoughts on this creation….
I didn’t particular love or hate this book. For me, it was just eh.
I didn’t feel a connection between Mac and Sid. There was no sparks whatsoever in my mind. All the characters lacked a human quality which a writer must convey if she or he wishes to entice the reader to keep reading and keep purchasing his/her story.
I did read the whole book but, unfortunately, I won’t be going back for seconds.
The only reason why I am not giving it a 1 ❤ was due to the fact Grace shed some light on the foster care world. It saddens me to see children “forgotten” in the system or foster parents who are doing a great job not get the recognition they rightfully deserve. Trust me, I know not all social workers drop the ball but when they do, it hurts not only the child but those who care for the child – foster families, friends, and their real family (in this case).
