From the back of the book:
How far would you go for the best friend who broke your heart? This internationally best selling novel tells an enchating tale of life’s most unpredictable loves and heartaches, and the unforgettable bond between a single woman and an extraordinary five-year-old girl.
From the moment they met in college, best friends Adele Brannon and Kamryn Matika thought nothing could come between them - until Adele did the unthinkable and slept with Kamryn’s fiance, Nate. Now, after years of silence, the two women are reuniting, and Adele has a stunning request for her old friend: she wants Kamryn to adopt her five-year-old daughter, Tegan.
Besides the difference in skin color - many will assume that headstrong, impulsive Kamryn is Tegan’s nanny - there’s the inconvenient truth that Kamryn is wholly unprepared to take care of anyone, especially someone who reminds ehr so much of Nate. With crises brewing at work and her love life in shambles, can Kamryn somehow become the mother a little girl needs her to be?
This book was FANTASTIC. One of the ones that managed to tug on the heart strings and make me giggle. The characters were heartrendingly real, and the emotion in this book was high. I felt like a fly on the wall, like I was actually there for the events. If you are looking for a light easy read this book is not the book for you.
