"Gwyn Jacobs doesn't believe in fairy tales. Ever since her ex-husband walked out four years ago, abandoning her with their three-year-old daughter and four-month-old twins, Gwyn has had to be mother, father, and bread-winner all rolled into one. Her own scarred heart and failed marriage aside, she refuses to open up her children's lives to the possibility of another heartbreak, so she has an unbending policy of no dating and no unattached men in her home...Until her very own fairy tale falls into her lap - and the hero won't take no for an answer."
Not even the super bowl could pull me away from this book. Ms Poitevin has created a story here with all the elements of making a modern day fairy tale. She has masterfully written characters you route for and understand. Conflict that is real and believable and a story that is at its heart about love and learning to trust again.
This beautifully written book was a pleasure to read and I hated to have it end. My only complaint about the book is that it was only 264 pages. I would have gladly read more about Gareth and Gwyn with two 'n's. I can not say how highly I recommend this book. 5 Diamonds a rating I do not hand out lightly.
