Her Motherhood Wish

GIVEAWAY

GWYN, KELI
HER MOTHERHOOD WISH

Building a family...

En route to the Double T Orphanage to work on its expansion, carpenter Chip Evans and Caroline Hunt discover two orphaned children -- and become their caregivers. But Chip's determined not to let himself get too attached to the children who just lost their widowed father...or the lovely woman helping him care for them. Especially since Callie and the little ones just don't fit into his detailed plans for the future.

Callie can't help but fall in love with the orphans, and despite her better judgement, she's falling Chip, too. Her dreams of being a wife and mother were not quite like this. But Callie believes a plan bigger than Chip's brought them all together...and now she just has to help him see it, too.

My Review:

Chip is a make-a-plan-stick-to-the-plan kind of guy. You might say he has blinders on, too busy looking ahead to the next part of the plan to see what's right in front of him. That would be Callie and two endearing orphans. Only finding a wife and starting a family is three years into the future, according to the aforementioned plan. This stupendously dense hero needs a good smack upside the head to knock some sense into him. :-) Lucky he is handsome cowboy material (even if he is a carpenter) with courtly manners, an over-zealous protective streak and the ability to use gentle persuasion to win over small children. He's perfect in every way -- except for that dratted plan!

Callie fights the attraction -- which isn't too hard when Chip brings up his plan -- but the rest of the time it's near impossible to resist this hero's ready smile and kind overtures. Even so, Callie strives to guard her heart because she knows she'll never measure up to that confounded grand plan of Chip's.  Tender, sweet, infuriating romance ensues. Along with a bonus suspense thread that brought some added tension and a whole lot of action to the story.

  1. This one is on my TBR review list for Feb/March, but haven't gotten to it yet. Keli Gwyn is such a fun & warm-hearted person--(what I know from FB & her early reader team)--so it's not surprising it reflects on her well-written stories :-) Your review makes me so excited that I want to rush through my books to get to this one!! :-)

  8. Kav, I just read Keli's newest book....LOVED IT.....and so agree about Chip. He needed to revise The Plan! But he certainly made up for his attitude with a charming ending. Absolutely a fun book! As always, thanks for your great review. :) Blessings!
