This was a touching story with laughter and even had me tearing up at points. People say that children and animals know a person at a soul level. This seems to be so when it comes to Cecily and Herbert.
Out of anywhere Herbert could have scurried into, he did so into Rick’s office. Cecily came in looking for him. When Cecily waltzed into his office looking for her rodent, he had no idea that she would waltz right into his heart. Once her mom, Maggie, comes to find Cece, Rick knows he is in real trouble.
Maggie has been through a lot. Moved in with her sister, she is working nights for a security firm whiled during the day she attends culinary school. When her daughter wanders into an office, she had no idea that fate would step in and her life would never be the same again.
I love how this book takes us through the precious meeting that leads to a wonderful love story. I love how sex is not the prominent part of this story. But most of all, I love how we follow the couple and Cece all the way through Cece is old enough to go to work herself. I don’t feel like there is any holes in the love story of Rick and Maggie. I am hoping that we get to know Kat’s love story next.
