Publisher's Summary

A powerful attorney, a woman with a heart too big for her own good, and an instant family neither was prepared for...

Garrett Bradley commands the attention of some of the most influential clients in the country as one of the leading corporate attorneys in New York City, but one phone call changes everything. He must return home to Hallbrook, NH, where he soon discovers he’s responsible for three young kids and one monster-sized Saint Bernard.

April St. James, the social worker assistant assigned to the children’s case before Garrett’s mother adopted them, was staying with the children until Sarah Bradley’s prodigal son returns home to take up his responsibilities. Unfortunately, it puts her own job in jeopardy.

A powerhouse in the business world but clueless when it comes to children, Garrett turns to April with an offer she can’t refuse, enticing her to come to the city as a temporary nanny. The deal will allow her to finally pursue her dreams once the job is done.

But three kids, a dog, a nanny, and an uptight attorney don’t mix well in a fancy NYC penthouse. And when Garrett makes a mistake at work, he realizes somethings got to give before the situation destroys his reputation, the company, and most importantly, his new family.

A most engaging story

I loved this book from the very first few paragraphs and couldn’t wait to find how it all panned out.
It didn’t disappoint and had me flu until the last chapter.
If you love clean romance, you will love this tale.

Highly Recommend

What a fun read! This is a cute story with well developed characters. I can't imagine what it would be like to suddenly find yourself as a guardian to 3 children... especially for a single man. While Garrett made a tremendous effort, with the help of April he rose to the occasion and rocked it. While parts of it may tug at the heartstrings, other parts will have you laughing out loud.

The narration was well done.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

Change of heart

A sweet story of learning that true success is found at home and not in the office when a man discovers he is now the guardian of 3 children and a dog. It was a fun story to follow as the main character made major shifts in his thinking and beliefs as he discovered lasting happiness.
The reader had a pleasant, consistent voice and was accompanied by two young children. The two made a good story even better with their talents for narration.

Wonderful Storytelling

This was my first audiobook (or book) by Elsie Davis. And it won’t be my last! The story was about three orphaned children...but I don’t want to give anything away. Really fun performance by both adults and especially the children. I finished it in one day it was so good!

A 3.5 stars sweet story

This audiobook starts the Hallbrook series and centers around Garrett Bradley and April St. James.
Garrett is a top notch attorney in NYC whose life is suddenly turned upside down when he’s entrusted not only three young children but also a lovable , but also slightly unruly St. Bernard.
April had been the social worker assigned to the case prior to them being adopted by Garrett’s Mom. When his Mom passes, April is taking care of the children until Garrett’s arrival. The man who is now the legal guardian of the kids. To say he was shocked, unprepared and clueless, is putting it mildly.
Watching the trials and tribulations of the kids, the dog, Garrett and April was at times funny and crazy.
This is a sweet, clean story very much in the style of Hallmark. Not earth shattering, but good to listen/read in an afternoon of leisure.

It was such a beautiful story!! 😍

Love & Order was such a beautiful story!! 😍 I loved following Garrett and April's story. Enough time had passed that I had forgotten what the book was about, so I was definitely immersed in Garrett's experience, getting surprised with the news of his new charges. I've also realized that lately, I'm a sucker for the "meet-cute" to be told from the male POV, so that was an added bonus. :) April was the perfect nanny, but also the perfect complement to Garrett. I loved her already established relationship with the kids, and how she was able to help them all the way through, not only taking care of them and their physical needs, but also with their emotional ones, especially after the loss of their parents. The attraction between the MCs was there from the start, but it was beautiful getting to see these two developing feelings for the other and starting to consider the possibility of more (especially for Garrett, the self-proclaimed bachelor lawyer, after he gets a taste of what coming home to a family could be).

I really liked the narrator's voice, and how she had a distinct, different voice for every character. I especially enjoyed her male voices since they didn't sound like a female impersonating a male. As for the kids' voices, I admit they took me a bit to get used to, but once I did, I found them perfect for the story. They really brought it to life in a different, but definitely good, way, and made the ending all that much sweeter.

Overall, a truly beautiful Clean/Sweet Contemporary Romance audiobook recommended for fans of the author, and/or people who enjoy the nanny, "falling for the boss", "he's big-city, she's small-town" tropes. Completely recommended and I can't wait to check out the next one in this series! ~ 5 stars!
