Jack Livingston has been raising his nine-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. While he travels for work, Natalie is lovingly cared for by Laura, an Amish nanny who loves her as her own. Kelly Maines is nearing the end of her rope. Her baby was kidnapped, the apparent victim of a black market adoption ring, and for eight years, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. Now, there's one last lead from a private investigator: Just a few miles away lives a girl who matches the profile. Could this, at long last, be her beloved child? Desperately, Kelly initiates a "chance" meeting with Jack Livingston. It goes really well. So well, in fact, that Jack asks her out. One date leads to another, and before she can come clean with her original motives, Kelly realizes Jack is falling for her - and she for him. Now how can she tell Jack why she's really here? And having gotten to know Natalie, what if she isn't her long-lost daughter, after all? This was all supposed to be so simple. But nothing in Natalie's world is simple ....

Not only is this the best book Beverly Lewis has ever written, but it is a must LISTEN to. Christina Moore is one of my favorite narrators and she outdoes herself with this book. The voices are excellent and the inflections are perfect I find myself chuckling a lot at Natalie's big personality. This book must be listened to rather than read to fully appreciate how well written it is. This is a book that needs to be made into a movie. And I love that it is 13+ hours long. More to love. I recommend you buy it right now!
The humor associated with Natalie's big personality.
This one is the best.
surprised not as good as most Beverly Lewis. Usually can't wait to get back to it.Not so with this book.
Didn't think very realistic ,the plots laid out.some family secrets can be kept ,others not so likely.
I did not enjoy this book very much. there were no pauses to let your mind catch up to all the scenarios going on. it sort of had a good ending...I guess...but it seemed to me a mixed up mess...I wish I had not bought it.
it is a great story that could happen to any one. The sweet way of a uncle and child relationship.
what the girls thoughts were.
so far so good strong story lines.
laugh, cry, sad happy all in one night.
Heartwarming and Engaging!
Finding Natalie's mother - the story does not turn out as one might expect!
Her character voices are excellent. She creates such great images in my head while I listen!
Jack's re-encounter with Kelly.
This is one of the best books I have listened to in a very long time.
I had stopped reading Beverly Lewis as it seemed most of the stories were basically the same with just a different name to the characters. This one is based mostly in the "Englisher" world but there are Amish traits that weigh into the story.The guts of this story takes place in the last half of the second download. I really did not care for this narrator - she does not do male voices well at all - almost to the point of stopping the listen. The ending was okay and good for the characters. Did this keep me enraptured and on the edge of my seat waiting for the next chapter? No.
So me this was "just okay".
