The Savannah widower infuriates Harper...but his little girl wins the nanny’s heart. An endearing story that delivers laughter and tears!

Harper Kirkpatrick is not what Cameron Bennett expects for the bachelor party in his Savannah mansion. She’s desperate when he sends her home in her cat costume. Jobs are scarce and eviction looms. Former boyfriend Billy took off for California and she’s too proud to head home to Chicago.

Although Cameron may not go for her cheerleader kicks, he does admire Harper’s spunk. When she answers his ad for a nanny, she’s horrified to find herself back at his mansion. But she can’t turn down the generous salary or Bella, the toddler with troubled eyes and an eating problem. Youngest in the Kirkpatrick clan, Harper’s not an expert on kids. Neither is the young widower.

Her head-strong personality soon puts her at odds with Cameron and his TV personality girlfriend, Kimmy Carrington. When she stands in for Kimmy at a Savannah gala, Harper and Cameron spark a fire that nearly burns down the dance floor. Never has the wrong man felt so right. Never has a boy from the south worked so hard to rev up the charm. A trip home for his father’s funeral reveals a whole different side of the successful renovation expert. Will the Windy City girl be able to put the heart back in his home? Can he convince her that his southern comfort has staying power?


Barbara Lohr writes sweet contemporary romance with a flair for fun. In her Windy City Romance series, the Kirkpatrick family and friends take on love and life’s issues. Set on the shores of Lake Michigan, the Man from Yesterday series poses the provocative question what if the boy you left behind is the man you want forever? When she's not writing, she loves to golf, bike, kayak or cook. She makes a mean popover. Barbara lives in the South of the US with her husband and a cat that insists he was Heathcliff in a former life.

REVIEW:
A romance is what the bookish heart needed for Valentine's Day.
It didn't disappoint either! It had every element that I look for in a romance. It had great characters with chemistry. There was side elements that deepened the plot. There was passion in parts.
Still it wasn't the best romance that I have ever read.
Sometimes you weren't sure who was telling the story though. Was Harper the protagonist or Cameron?! At one point, I actually stopped reading and was like, "what the heck, I thought I was reading from her point of view." So that I wasn't a fan of. Nor was I fond of the loser making an appearance at the end of the story. Totally unnecessary.
In the end, it was a solid story that ended up coming together. Yeah, I will probably read the next book in the series.


3.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
