This book is paired with A Dad for Her Twins by Tanya Michaels, a book with surprisingly similar themes tackled in a completely different way. In this case, divorcee Kenzie is making a fresh start for herself and her twin nine-year-olds. She's more determined than ever to get away from her ex-husband, a selfish rock musician with all the worst parts of an artist's temperament. The last thing she needs is to move into the hall across from another surly artist. Sure, JT may be attractive, but he appears to suffer from the same flaws as her ex, and Kenzie needs someone with a far more stable temperament as a father figure to her kids. JT, still reeling from the death of his wife and infant daughter, can't find the wherewithal to paint. At least not until the bewitching Kenzie moves in across the hall.
LOVED this story especially the portrayal of Leslie and Drew, Kenzie's precocious and precious kiddos. There are also some great dynamics between Kenzie and her seemingly perfect younger sister, and I love Mrs. Sanchez, the neighbor who doles out equal parts unsolicited advice and tasty Mexican dishes. Loved, loved the dynamics between Kenzie and JT, the push me/pull me of how they want to open up to each other but can't then start to do so anyway. Great humorous voice and lots of nice artistic metaphors, too.
The second book I liked better than the first. I really got into this story. It was about a single mom with 2 kids and a deadbeat dad that move to a new city. They move into the Peachy Acres apartment building and meet their neighbor who is a widow. His story is very sad and has been in a deep depression since he lost his wife. The story of how he slowly returns to the land of living and she learns to trust her heart again was a great read. The apartment building was full of great characters that made you feel like you were living with them in the building. The kids were great characters adjusting to a new move and seeing their mom date for the first time. I loved the book, so glad it was included.
