Blurb: When you find your family, you’ll do anything to keep it.
When Charles Macquarrie inherits a fortune and an international clothing company, he also inherits three young cousins he desperately needs help raising. By a stroke of luck, he discovers and hires Jonathan Lamb, who spent his life in a children’s home due to chronic illness, to be his nanny.
If Jon thought a budding romance with his wealthy boss complicated his life, he has no idea of the hardships awaiting him when he’s charged with embezzlement and kidnapping. But even when threatened by accounting discrepancies and mob connections, Jon and Charles won’t let go of the family they’ve built together without a fight.
Review: Finding Family is part of the Dreamspun Desires collection and it was an adorably sweet, men with children plotline that I enjoyed. Everything was practically perfect in every way, but it wasn’t annoyingly so.
The writing was simple and easy to follow and the MCs are likable. Charles had a few issues that were easily handled, but Jon—just like the Gary Poppins nickname he’s given in the story—is practically perfect.
The kids, to me, felt a bit older/wiser than their ages, and while it is mentioned by the author in the story, I like it that it was addressed. Children in romance stories are either brats of the first order or a plot device that are barely mentioned. Mads, Holland and Jule are almost perfect pod children to go with the perfect manny. The rest of the cast of characters are interesting, but I think Bunny, Charles’ best friend, is my favorite.
If you are looking for a low-angst, super sweet read, then this book is for you.
