When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.
I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth. Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business. I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…
Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

Yes, you read that right…I’m back in the world of the Bailey’s and happy to be there.  Once again the author has treated the reader to a fun story with enough depth to keep you turning the pages and enough romance to make you warm and happy.  When I started this series I thought that I might lose interest after reading about one family over and over but, in truth, I’ve just become more invested in their lives and now I wish that Mom and Dad Bailey had had a few more kids!  Seriously though, this series never fails to surprise me.  Even after meeting Phoenix five stories ago and hearing about her throughout, I was still pleasantly surprised by how much I didn’t know…and how different she was from what I was expected.

This story about Phoenix, the aspiring singer, and Griffin, the music producer who’s getting out of the business was equal parts hot chemistry, sweet romance, and relationship struggles.  Phoenix was stronger than I’d previously imagined she could be and more introspective.  She balanced her inner desire for her career with her growing attraction to Griffin and her fondness for his 8 year-old son.  As their relationship grew, she fought her preconceived notions on about what would make her happy and what she truly wanted.  Griffin moved to Lake Starlight to get away from career woes and to give his son a better life.  He didn’t expect a girl like Phoenix to enter his world and his initial hesitance made for delightful slow burning romance.

Once again, I loved the writing and the storytelling here.  I enjoyed the main character’s interactions and, of course, the interference of the entire Bailey clan in their business.  I think that the thing I like best about these books is that the authors are able to walk the fine line of important issues and decisions with the interactions between this unconventional (read: nosy) family.  I enjoy watching them all have their say and, ultimately, I’m also in love with the romance that we get treated to in every story.  If you haven’t done so yet, check out the Bailey’s…you won’t be sorry!
