Story line okay, not really and in depth book, good for a quick no thinking read.

A friend sent me this book in a box of Love Inspired books. I believe I've read other books by this author.

The title was a bit confusing to me when I stopped to think about it. It almost makes it sound like either Carly (the child) was looking for a mother to love her or that Rick (Carly's father) was looking for a mother for his daughter. (Instead of it being a romance between Rick and Angie.)

There is also the complication of Glenda (Carly's mother) seeming to be more wrapped up in her work than she is with parenting her daughter. (And, as we find later, more wrapped up in her new love than in spending time with her daughter.).

It's a catch 22 for Glenda, I guess. She's trying to be a single parent who needs to work to support herself and her daughter. But this means that Carly is in day care much of the day and then Carly reports her mother often tells her to play by herself with quiet activities such as puzzles. When you add in that Glenda needs to find time for this relationship with John from Germany . . . a man who doesn't sound thrilled about parenthood or children from the little we learn of him.

On the other hand, I know that it's easier for the parent who only sees the child a limited amount of time to be considered "the fun parent" because he/she plans activities to do with the child and spends time with the child with minimum of disciplining.

I admire Rick for fighting to keep his daughter in the US instead of just letting Glenda have her way and take Carly to Germany. He is correct when he says the courts tend to favor the mother.

I enjoyed this Love Inspired Romance. I voluntarily chose to review this story and I gave it a 5* rating. While it took a little while to get into this story, it really touched me. There is lots going on and a few twists and turns. Not real sure if a under 18 reader should read this but it has a lot of heart and hope in it.
