Together with You: A Book Review

About The Book:

Sometimes the most unexpected love can be exactly what a heart needs...
When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall's PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart.

Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny.

Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?

Known for her realistic and engaging characters, Victoria Bylin delivers an emotion-packed story reminiscent of The Sound of Music, one that reminds us all to believe in the power of faith and love.

My Review:

What a fantastic read! I thoroughly enjoyed this read that covered themes like faith, trust, forgiveness and lessons learned from making bad decisions. The characters were realistically flawed with idiosyncrosies that most readers would possess and relate to. I found it great to read a novel that includes a character with FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome), and that added a special level to this emotional and heart-warming book. I love the various levels of relationships in the book, it kept me reading late into the night and look forward to reading more from this author.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
