Computer-tech millionaire Bowie Callahan is about the last person that schoolteacher Katrina Bailey wants to work for. As far as she can see, he’s arrogant, entitled and not up to the task of caring for his young half brother, Milo. But Kat is, especially if it brings her closer to her goal of adopting an orphaned little girl. And as her kindness and patience work wonders with Milo, she realizes there’s more to sexy, wary Bo than she’d ever realized.
Serenity Harbor by RaeAnne Thayne is #6 in her Haven Point series. However it can very easily be read as a stand alone. I hadn’t read any other one in the series and I slotted into it no trouble. I am sure those who have read previous books though will enjoy what surely are cameos from previous couples who now have their happily ever after.
I really enjoyed this small town contemporary romance. When you place an adorable six year old into the mix you have me hooked every time. Milo is Bowie’s brother, one he has only just heard about and is now the guardian. Only trouble is he has no speech and is on the autism spectrum. That’s where Katrina comes in, she is present when he has a melt down in the supermarket – she manages to distract and manage it no trouble. And from there a beautiful relationship is about to unfold.
Katrina is a school teacher although not working at present, she is endeavouring to adopt a little four year old from a South American country, who has Down’s Syndrome. All her efforts so far have gone done the gurgler and she is desperate to succeed in adopting and bringing her to her hometown, and if she can’t she intends to go live in South America for good.
Bowie is a successful and wealthy tech guy and really wants to care for his brother, with Kat’s help he is going to be able to come to love and care for him well, however in the journey he also comes to love Katrina, who is a little reluctant in that realm. Both Bowie and Kat have had experiences growing up that have left them a little distrustful and careful.
This was an easy read, I was swept up into a relaxing, fun read. I’d quite happily read on and possibly back in this series!
