His-and-hers Family by Helen Lacey

His-and-Hers Family

Reviewed by Desere

This was one of the sweetest romances ever. The love and compassion was simply beautiful. And so very well written by the author. It made me bawl my eyes out so bad, and that believe me only happens when a book is really good and I feel really connected to the characters.

The story about Fiona and Wyatt finding each other was so beautifully brought to life by the author that I could feel the emotions of anger, hurt and confusion of past mistakes of the characters. It was like the the author was really truly speaking to me through her words.

What I loved about the book was how the author took a mother and daughter torn apart by circumstances and slowly let them not only come closer but really build a relationship that tore at my heartstrings.

Add into the mix Fiona's prince charming and at the end of the day I ended up with a story about forgiveness, love found and relationships of understanding created.

For me as reader I could walk away with a deeper understanding at just how difficult it is to rebuild your life after either giving up what you love the most or finding it again and having to try to hold onto it and at the same time deal with new found romance.

The book was truly an emotional read with tear jerker moments, new found happiness and just plain fantastic writing.The book was also very realistic in the sense that the choices Fiona needs to make and the situations that arise from the past and the future are ones that really do happen everyday.

I also loved that Fiona was a character from the previous Helen Lacey book, and this time around I finally got to see what her secret was and the author took me as reader behind the scenes and finally let me in on the life of the real Fiona.

I recommend this read for all lovers of romance with a sweet and sensual side and also real life drama. Excellent work Helen I look forward to the next instalment of Crystal Point.

HIS-AND-HERS FAMILY by author Helen Lacey is a Harlequins Special Editions release for January 2013.

When Fiona Walsh found Wyatt Harper stalking her, she decided to take matters in her own hands and confront him. What she found out was so shocking that she literally fell to her knees.

Tall, dark and handsome, Wyatt was there on his niece’s behalf. But would Fiona agree to his request?

And to make matters worse, Wyatt found himself attracted to Fiona. She also found her body tingled and vibrated by Wyatt’s nearness. Would they act on this mutual attraction? What about Fiona’s relationship with her daughter? Could she jeopardize her new found relationship with her daughter to give in to her desire for Wyatt?

HIS-AND-HERS FAMILY is a heart wrenching romance. Helen Lacey takes us to unexpected depths of human relationship and trust. She brings this powerful story of giving up your child for adoption at birth and then later trying to forge a relationship with them. And of second chances at happy ever after.

Highly recommended and well worth reading.

His-and-Hers Family (Harlequin Special Edition) by Helen Lacey

This is the third book in the series and again it deals with a very emotional issue. I hope I don’t give away too much of the plot in my review.

In His and Hers Family we finally learn more about the baby that Fiona Walsh gave away at the tender age of 15. She grew up with a selfish addict of a Mother and a Father she never knew. When she becomes pregnant her Mother “if one could ever call her that” drops her off to live with a Great Uncle, where she is talked into giving the baby up in a closed adoption.

Wyatt Harper has felt a betrayal of his own. Cheated on by his finance he is very cautious about others. But he is just stunned when he comes face to face with Fiona Walsh. He heads up the family’s business. He’s attractive, caring, protective.

Wyatt Harper has done a thorough investigation into Fiona’s background. But some secrets are best not found. He wants to make sure his young niece Cecily Todd is not hurt by the woman who gave her up for adoption 14 years ago. He did not plan on being so attracted to her. Wyatt has been made legal guardian of his young niece and she wishes to learn of her birth mother after the death of her parents.

When I said it was emotional that is an understatement. There are so many tears to this book. From Fiona’s heartbreak, to the betrayal that Wyatt came face to face with. And just being able to bring a Mother and daughter back together and build on a relationship. 

I can’t say enough about this one. It truly is worth the read. But it will require some Kleenex’s. 

5/5 stars

I received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
