Opening it she finds something that shocks her and sets her on her heels yet again, there is a baby on the doorstep.
Dan Cooper has his own knife to grind with babies and more importantly with parents, mom’s especially, who aren’t able to care for their own children. However he has a great heart and is a cop who is trained and has friends to help so when Carrie comes pounding on his door for help with a baby she found on a doorstop he knows he has to keep calm and take control of the situation.
What will happen when these two almost anti baby people are cooped up in the big city for days with a baby? Can they work through their baggage? Can they learn to trust one another with their secrets? Then when the weather finally lets up will they be able to face the real world?
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the title of this book, but what I found wasn’t it. I found myself wishing I knew more about Dan’s past and Carrie’s as well. Though overall it was a wonderful story and then ending did make me tear I can’t help but think that something was missing. I would definitely pick it up though because even though the romance was secondary the story was top shelf.
