A pilot, a nanny, a baby, and a fake engagement...it's all baby business!
When the hot single dad next door asks me to babysit one morning in a pinch, I figure I can help him out temporarily. I'm supposed to be the resident baby expert at RockYourBaby.com, after all. Unfortunately, behind the computer monitor, my entire life is one big, fat lie. It's my late mother who was the baby whisperer and I'm simply trying to keep her online baby business afloat until we can sell it to the highest bidder.
But soon Levi is struggling to keep custody when Grace's maternal grandparents arrive in town. When I get the bright idea that they might be happy to know Levi and I are engaged, I have no idea what I've started. Now Levi is upset, the grandparents are happy, and Grace might be teething.
Who knew this baby business was so complicated...
Baby brings them together
Four and a half stars
Pilot Levi Lambert finds out he’s a father when he’s notified after his baby’s mother’s death. When his nanny skips out on him, he convinces his neighbor, Carly Gilmore, to give him a hand, at least for the day. Carly’s got her hands full with her late mother’s baby expertise site, and taking care of little Grace changes her perspective but fast!
THIS BABY BUSINESS by Heatherly Bell is loosely connected to BREAKING EMILY’S RULES but stands well alone. Levi and Carly have some past emotional scars to overcome and some tricky present concerns to manage. When they come to recognize that they’re truly better together, they’re able to move their relationship forward with their willingness to be truthful and vulnerable with each other.
Heatherly Bell excels at small-town romance, and This Baby Business fits that to a T.
This is a fun book with plenty of complicated twists.
