"He tried not to panic as it occurred to him that his daughters weren't just children - they were females."
Jacob has his hands full trying to raise his triplet daughters on his own. After their mother left, he was all they had and he is determined that that will be enough. But when faced with the task of sewing costumes for the school play, and their principle's apparent concern over their need for a woman's touch, he starts getting concerned. He won't let another woman come into their lives just to walk right back out of it. But the girls do need a woman. Michelle needs a distraction. Something to keep her mind off of its obsession of her husband's disappearance five years earlier. The government had declared him dead, but Michelle needed proof - proof that was hard to find. Helping out with her co-worker's daughters seems like the perfect solution for both of them. But can they keep this just about the kids?
My Opinion: This was a sweet romance, deeply entrenched in the emotions of the heroine. Michelle is in a difficult situation, balancing between an old love and the opportunity to move on. Though I felt a better justification was needed, her journey of loving again is tender and difficult at the same time. Jacob is a good, strong character without being unrealistic. Their interactions were realistic and fun. They have some wonderfully fun kisses, too. The three little girls confused me for a bit, but I think added a good dose of reality to the situations. A fun read you will enjoy as much for the family fun as for the romance.
