Together With You by Victoria Bylin

I wasn't wild about the cover of this book at all. However, I was a bit curious about the story inside. I'm glad I didn't judge this book by it's cover. Carly has a past issue to deal with, but when a lost child winds up in the store she works in, her world has to change again. Penny isn't just any child, she has a major challenge in her life. An issue that Dr. Ryan blames himself for causing, although it would take more than just once for this issue to occur, he doesn't know God like he should. Meeting Carly is a game-plan-changer. Can these two, separate or together find the forgiveness and relationship with God they need? With three children involved, lives will wind up mended, or shattered depending on each step taken in this story.

This was my first book by this Author and it was very gripping. Penny and her issues are handled so very, very well over all. While some of the over all plot outcome was easy to figure out, the how to get there from here and how how it happened was good enough to keep me reading with out any lulls.

My copy of this book came from Bethany House Bloggers in exchange for my honest review and nothing else.

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?
