A successful anaesthetist, Anna is focused on herself, her career, and her girlfriend. Everything changes abruptly when her brother’s and sister-in-law’s deaths devastate her and her family. Left responsible for her young niece and nephew, Anna finds herself dumped and alone in Melbourne, a city she doesn’t even like. She tries to navigate the shock of looking after two children battling with their grief while managing her own.
Filled with self-doubt, Anna feels as if she’s making a mess of the entire thing, especially when she collides with a long-legged stranger. Anna barely has time to brush her teeth in the morning, let alone to date a woman—least of all one who has no idea about the two kids under her care.
Just when Anna finally starts to feel as if she’s getting some control of the situation, the biggest fight begins and Anna really has to step up once and for all.
Anna’s brother and sister in law died leaving her to care for their two children. Anna had never wanted kids and in spite of the life she had in another city she moves back to step up, leaving her shallow girlfriend behind. Soon she will make true friends, a new girlfriend and start a new relationship with her mother, but through it all she makes it clear, the kids come first!
I really loved this book. It was so sweet and romantic and mushy…. it was just soo good! I admired Anna’s strength and courage to give up everything and give her niece and nephew a stable loving life. Her new friends are also just as strong as they make their way past their own pain. Lane and Kym have each others backs and Anna’s even when she can not cope with another thing and all are there for each other even when things look the bleakest. I would love to have friends like that! I also liked how Anna was able to forgive her mother and they could move on to have a whole different kind of relationship than they did before Anna moved away. Even when things were bad their love shone through. It was all so gosh darn warm and fuzzy and I can not wait to read it again!
