AT HOME FOR HER FAMILY
The Millionaire and the Mechanic
Never in a hundred years does Sabrina Martinez expect to volunteer at the Downtown Denver Mission with someone like handsome businessman Jack Thorne--let alone become friends with him. She's grown up in a broken home and is even more surprised to discover an heir to a fortune is interested in a girl like her. But Sabrina can't let anything distract her--not even love. She's battling for custody of her nieces and there's nothing more important than that. Jack wants to help, but the divide between him and Sabrina seems impossibly wide. Can they learn to see past their differences, and give themselves a chance at true love--and a real family?
An eye-opening reality check of a read. Carmichael has created a memorable setting in the Downtown Denver Mission. It creates lots of scope for thought provoking plots dealing with real issues like poverty and prejudice and how they affect families. But the Mission holds a lot of hope too -- in the people who live and work and volunteer there. This is the third book in the series and I loved catching up with characters from the first and second books. No need to have read the other two though, A Home for Her Family is a standalone read. I just get a kick out of catching a glimpse of old friends from previous books.
Jack meets his match when Sabrina walks into his life. They have a great opening scene. Fireworks and laughter. Absolutely perfect. But Jack is a bit too brash, too eager to leap in and fix everything. Sabrina's a whole lot wary and definitely prickly. If she were an animal she'd be a porcupine. Jack would be a cuddly ol' bear. So you can see how a romance between the two might be a wee bit complicated. :-) Luckily I like a healthy does of angst with my romance and that's what the author delivers in this heartwarming love story.
