Quinn Baker followed her dreams of becoming an artist to New York City. But one failed marriage later she realizes she has nothing to show for her fancy life in the city but a diploma she’s done absolutely nothing with. She goes back to her home town after getting news of her grandmother's death and hopes to reconnect with her sister and nieces. While there she runs into single father Jonah and his daughter Lily. Jonah asks Quinn to teach him how to read and things take off from there.
This book was absolutely amazing and I loved every bit of it. I have been wanting to read this book for a while and have finally gotten the chance. The relationship between Jonah and Quinn was so pure and it was nice to see it develop. As the book went on they got closer and started to depend on each other too. They opened up and talked about the things in their lives that haunted them and made them believe that they weren't good enough for each other. They had a lot of obstacles and although I really wanted to punch Kayla in the head or give her a good wedgie, she turned out ok in the end. It’s funny how family members can and will make assumptions about your life even though they come nowhere close to the actual situation. Even though it’s not true they still judge you for them in their minds and that’s basically what Kayla did to Quinn. Lily is just adorable and her fascination with fairies is too cute. I loved the ending and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about love, taking chances and family.
Quinn Baker followed her dreams of becoming an artist to New York City. But one failed marriage later and she realizes she has nothing to show for her fancy life in the city but a diploma she’s done absolutely nothing with.
Now with news of her grandmother’s death, Quinn heads back home to reconnect with the only family she has left, her sister, and figure out what she is supposed to be doing with her life. She finds an ally in handyman Jonah Goodwin. The widower asks an intriguing favor - teach him to read. The more time Quinn spends with Jonah and his adorable little daughter, Lily, the more she begins to rediscover herself, her passion for her drawing, and her longing for a child and a family of her own.
Illiteracy has kept Jonah from forging friendships and building a career his daughter could be proud of. Hiding his secret has always been a full time job. Yet something about Quinn inspires trust - she helps Jonah gain the confidence he needs to make a better life for Lily. But can she show him that, he too, is deserving of love?
Add in a dash of fairy magic and matchmaking from beyond the grave, and suddenly this small town has a lot more excitement than anything Quinn could find in the city.
