Love and Other Mistakes, by Jessica Kate
Natalie Groves couldn’t be having a worse day. Her career dream is long dead, she’s losing her job, and her father has cancer. Then she finds out her ex-fiance, Jeremy Walters, is back in town after having dumped her seven years earlier – with his nine-month-old son.
Jem has returned for his dream job, with hopes of reconciling with his family. But his overbearing father remains as critical as ever. Even cute baby Oliver can’t melt his father’s hard heart. When Jem learns Natalie has lost her job, he asks her to be Olly’s nanny, and Natalie is desperate enough to accept.
Love and Other Mistakes is a sparkling story full of humor and banter. Yet this debut novel is so much more than just cute. Jessica Kate explores the pain caused by family secrets, betrayal, and broken dreams, and shows the difficulty of wrestling with them – and the joys of doing that wrestling. Natalie and Jem are characters with depth – and they have amazing chemistry! I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I recommend it wholeheartedly!
