Single mother, and work-at-home beautician, Lauren Frazier can barely keep a roof over her head, let alone stop it from falling down around her. When handyman Caleb Hunter stops by for a haircut, he’s like the answer to her prayers—and the attraction is instantaneous. Too bad her troublesome ten-year-old son isn’t quite as thrilled to have Caleb hanging around.
Old wounds have kept Caleb from returning to Redemption permanently. When he receives word of his mother’s unexpected death, guilt and regret bring him home again, but will the love of a good woman keep him there? Lauren excites Caleb like no woman ever has, but she’s a package deal, and he’s not sure he’s prepared to take on a ready-made family.
A Fair of the Heart is a perfect book for the beach or a day by the pool. Perfect in that it is a quick read. I got through it in about 2 hours. That is a record these days for me (almost no time to read).
It was a good bit of fluff too. It had it all: troubled kid, a woman whose husband left her, and the adorable toddler. And instant chemistry!!! So it is safe to say that no, this is not a “G” or even a “PG” rated romance novel. I would give it an “R” rating.
So, will I reread this book and will I recommend it to family and friends, yes, I will.
