Summary

Lauren Bailey may be a romantic at heart, but after a decade of matchmaking schemes gone wrong, there's only one match she's committed to now - the one that will make her a mother. Lauren is a dedicated first-grade teacher in Idaho, and her love for children has led her to the path of international adoption. To satisfy her adoption agency's requirements, she gladly agreed to remain single for the foreseeable future; however, just as her long wait comes to an end, Lauren is blindsided by a complication she never saw coming: Joshua Avery.

Joshua may be a substitute teacher by day, but Lauren finds his passion for creating educational technology as fascinating as his antics in the classroom. Although she does her best to downplay the undeniable connection between them, his relentless pursuit of her heart puts her commitment to stay unattached to the test and causes her once-firm conviction to waver.

Heartwarming and lovely

I loved this story! The narrator was mediocre but got a little better after the beginning. I would have given this 5 stars but I needed more at the end. It ended too soon. :-(

Beautiful Uplifting Story

This was the first book I've listened to by this author. She has a refreshing writing style that I thoroughly enjoyed. The story was very well written and full of substance. I'm excited to listen to this author again.
