This is a very sweet and charming story by Alissa Callen. One which helps both the heroine and hero find love when they least expected it. Another romance set in Australia, has this reader wishing she could afford a trip there!
Mia Windsor is a speech pathologist who specializes in treating children. Having grown up in a home with an unloving father and a stammer she knows all too well what is it is like to talk while stressed emotionally. Now she will be staying with her new clients for a fortnight. I loved how the author wrote in the exercises used to help Tilly with her speech issues. It gave the reader a better understanding of how a speech pathologist worked. The character of Mia was heartwarming. But she has trust issues after being used by a former fiance.
Kade Reid was raised that money is everything. He never really had a childhood, so how is he expected to raise his four year old niece. He has decided she will have everything that money can buy for her, but all Tilly wants is the love that Kade has a problem sharing. My heart just broke for the character of Kade. The only love he had ever experienced was from a grandmother he visited once. He never really had toys or learned to play as a child.
As much as I enjoyed this story, I felt my heart really went to the precious four year old Matilda “Tilly” she was such a joy to read about. After losing both parents she still had a big heart. I loved how the character of Mia worked Untle Kade into the lessons “no that is not a typo” read the story folks.
“Oh joy. Parenting advice from a man allergic to the entire spectrum of human emotion.”
I received a copy from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
