Until they can find the watch, she'll watch Tanner twins and give him a hand since he's helping her out. Of course time together will bring up feelings.
I loved this book it was fast paces, suspenseful, I loved that there was plenty going on. There was that attraction between the two characters I loved, and loved the dual point of view to go with that they were thinking. I liked getting that aspect to know what is truly going on in their mind and why the characters made certain choices. I loved the back stories that came with the characters especially Josie. Poor Josie just couldn't catch a break! I loved the relationship between Josie and the twins, it was sweet to see the overall family aspect of the book and not that it faded into the background like most books that I come across. I loved that there was plenty of drama to keep things interesting, I loved that not everything just stayed quiet because soon as things were seeming good something ended up happening. Overall a really great book, I really enjoyed it!
