Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Amanda Delmar is rich and spoiled. All her father ever expected of her was to be beautiful, so that's what she's done. But at 26, the shallowness of pleasure seeking and shopping till you drop is getting old. Apparently her father agrees, because when Amanda follows a friend to a small town in Ohio, then asks her father to send money, he cuts her off. Suddenly Amanda needs a job. Enter Danny Tucker, a farmer and a decent man who has just discovered that he has an eight-year-old daughter. Against the advice of his parents, he hires Amanda to watch little Piper, and, amazingly enough, she's very good at it. Amanda and Danny are drawn to the qualities they see in each other that no one else can, yet they think they don't belong together. McCarthy transforms what could have been a run-of-the-mill romance with standout characterizations that turn an unlikable girl and a boring guy into two enjoyable, empathetic people who make this romance shine.

Amanda Delmar came to Cuttersville, Ohio, purportedly the most haunted town in Ohio, for the sole purpose of irritating her father. Unfortunately for her, this plan works very well and he is irritated right into cutting her off from all access to

her money. Just as she's begging Boston Macnamara, manager of her father's Cuttersville plant, to give her a job, Danny Tucker, the former husband of Boston's new wife, Shelby, arrives on the scene. With him is a dirty little urchin that he introduces as his newfound daughter, Piper.

There is an unspoken attraction between Amanda and Danny, although neither would acknowledge it. Amanda is rich, spoiled, and appears to be totally oblivious as to how the real world functions. Danny is an honest, hardworking farmer who contently

lives the simple life. He sees right through Amanda's spoiled, selfish facade and is fascinated by the woman he sees underneath.

Piper turns out to be the unknown product of Danny's one-night stand with a girl he met at a local county fair and had never seen again. Piper's mother has died and her stepfather, who is verbally abusive of Piper, decides that he doesn't want to be bothered with her and he dumps her on Danny's doorstep. Amanda needs a job and Danny needs a babysitter, providing the perfect solution for both. This also puts the two of them together for a significant portion of each day, allowing their existing attraction to grow. It also gives Piper the opportunity to flourish and grow under Amanda's care, being treated with gentle kindness, the way all little girls should be treated.

Amanda and Danny's backgrounds could not have been more different, yet they both want the same thing, a loving, life-long relationship.

We return to Cuttersville, Ohio in Ms. McCarthy's latest heartwarming read. This time around we are treated to Amanda and Danny's romance with a sweet addition by the name of Piper. Readers will be well entertained with this story.

Amanda can't believe that her wealthy father has decided to practice "tough love" with her by refusing to finance anymore of her spoiled life. She is faced with the very real possibility that she will have to get a job. When she approaches her friend Boston (A Date With The Other side) and is told he can't help her...she is surprised to find the answer to her dilemma is none other than Danny Tucker and his daughter Piper. But, when Danny hires her to watch over Piper she can't believe the change her life is about to take or the pleasure she will find playing house. Will she allow herself to be happy without Danny and will she be able to make him realize she can be what he needs?

Danny is shocked when his eight year old daughter Piper is unceremoniously left with him. But she is his and his heart aches at the signs of neglect she wears. Not knowing what to do with his new responsibility he looks for help from his ex-wife Shelby and instead finds help from the pampered princess Amanda. Will he have what it takes to keep this lady from worming her way into his heart? He can't ignore the attraction between them but they are too different...or are they?

This was a sweet, heartwarming story. It was fun to re-visit Cuttersville and the characters we were introduced to in "A Date With The Other Side." Ms. McCarthy is a talented author and one that should be watched in the future.

Format: Paperback
Even though I'd read the prequel to this book, "A Date with the Other Side," I was a little hesitant to read this because I was afraid the female lead, Amanda, was going to be like Paris Hilton, whom I abhor. Turns out Amanda is your typical spoiled rich girl, but she's got a heart under all that designer wear and she's not afraid to let it show.

Amanda is a total fish out of water in Cuttersville, Ohio, but she doesn't get as annoyingly whiny as one might expect of a rich girl who finds herself stranded in the middle of nowhere and cut off by her millionaire father. I found myself laughing at the situations Amanda got herself into as she tried to find a job, but I respected the fact that she decided early on to take the lemons handed to her and make lemonade. Imagine, a spoiled, rich kid who actually discovers she's got a backbone and learns to do for herself. I will admit that I couldn't wrap my head around her dad. While the idea that he wanted her to stop being a sponge is one thing, the fact that he virtually ignored everything about her except her spending habits was sad - and cold. When Amanda became close to Piper, you could see that the apple, happily, fell far, far away from the tree. She had a lot more love in her than her sorry excuse for a father, who, by the end of the book, came around and made an effort to be more involved in Amanda's life.

Some of the best scenes in the book are when Amanda, Danny (the hot farmer who was featured in "A Date with the Other Side" - he is Shelby's ex-husband), and Piper are together. Danny is so sweet and totally determined to give Piper, the daughter he never knew he had, the good home she never had with her late mother and rat bastard step-father.
