Book Description

Widowed firefighter Danny Santori needs a miracle. Or at least a full-time babysitter who can handle his four lively kids. With a son and daughter to raise, busy landscape designer Tessa Doherty could also use some divine domestic intervention. All they have to do is take turns watching each other's children. What could be simpler?

Doing double duty as a stand-in nanny is wreaking havoc with Tessa's life. And her irresistible attraction to the roguishly charming single dad is a complication the fiercely independent career woman doesn't want or need.

Danny isn't trying to stand in the way of Tessa's dreams and goals. But he's hoping she'll see that five plus three family!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not high on my list January 30, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Quite frankly, I enjoyed the kids in this book more than the adults. The author took the time to create them with entertaining thoroughness while leaving the adults bereft of personality. In particular, it seems she couldn't make up her mind who Danny really was and every conversation with him left me painfully aware of this. Tessa was somewhat better as a character, but, again, not well-developed. The romance initiated and carried out was awkward and poorly conceived. By the time they admitted they were in love with each other, I was just reading for the book to be over. Having Danny do a 180 with no self-aware thoughts preceding it came so out of the blue that it left me just shaking my head, as confused and ready to bolt as Tessa. Having her do the same just after was just poor writing. I want to see how they arrive at the destination, not just the destination or else it doesn't mean anything. Worse, in my book, was leaving all those previous concerns unresolved.

On the positive side, the antics of the twins, the sweetness of the girls and the trip back to teenage years with Alison were entertaining. It's too bad the author couldn't sustain the adult romance and characters.

As to the title, which is why I purchased it seeing as Christmas novels are my favorite, the Christmas part seemed almost an afterthought.

4.0 out of 5 stars warm second chance at love romance November 11, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Warenton, Widower Danny Santori raises four out of control youngsters while fighting fires; he believes his kids who run off nannies before he can hire them are more difficult to deal with than an inferno.

Landscape artist Tessa Doherty recently divorced her husband Colin and moved from Chicago to raise her two children in fresh air but has no one to watch over them when she works. Rhonda, friend to both, arranges for Tessa and Danny to meet. They agree to help one another with the kids' issues. However, neither single parent expected an attraction between them especially in the midst of out of control children chaos.

This is a warm second chance at love romance filled with lighthearted jocularity as the children cause chaos inadvertently nuking at times the relationship between their adult single parents. The story line is character driven but also reminiscent of 1960s-1970s treasures like With Six You Get Egg Roll; Yours, Mine and Ours; and The Brady Bunch.
