Second-grade teacher, Callie Goodhue, built a good life for herself in her home town of Harmony, Idaho. Successful in her career and happily surrounded by friends and family, she was content. Until the day she learned her former heartthrob, Dr. Eli Webster, was moving back to town.
Because of a past incident involving Eli and her twin sister, Callie is determined to keep her distance from the handsome doctor. That quickly proves impossible.
First, Eli moves into the cottage right next door! Then her car breaks down and he’s the one who comes to her assistance. And when a baby is left on his doorstep (with a note indicating he’s the father), Eli asks her to watch the child while he tracks down the mother. Despite her hesitation, Callie finds the offer impossible to refuse. It’s her summer break and she desperately needs the extra money for a new transmission. If Callie didn’t know better, she’d think the Almighty was deliberately throwing them together.
Yet, as she begins to get to know the grown-up Eli, Callie wonders if God has a better plan for her life than she ever dreamed possible. And the man she once thought was perfectly wrong for her is actually perfectly right.
I enjoyed this story, I thought it was sweet and loving. I thought the author wrote terrific characters. I loved Eli, he took to being a father perfectly, he's sweet, sexy, and a bit smitten with Callie and he's a doctor..lol.... Callie is sweet and loving but she can't let go of the past, with her father or Eli. I thought Callie and Eli were perfect for each other and I'm glad Eli wore her down and taught her they were meant to be. I loved Amity, she funny and quirky and sweet. Love lil Lucy too. Over all I thought the story was sweet, loving and cute all in one. I'm not a fan of cheating stories (not Eli) so that part a little overdone for me but the lesson for Callie was forgiveness. So I liked the underlying lessened learned about letting the past go and forgiveness. 4 - 4.5 stars
