Book Description: Winning her over means winning everything

Sophie Callahan is PI Brad Harrington’s best lead to tracking down the man he’s been hired to bring to justice: Sophie’s own thieving father. But when Brad arrives at The Pampered Pooch, just behind a litter of stray kittens, the pet-store owner is the big surprise. This scrappy, huge-hearted woman with charm to spare gets to Brad in a way no one has ever been able to before. She spends her life finding—and making—homes for others: abandoned pets, her young niece. He’ll have to tell her why he’s really here. Which means he’ll have to choose between his sail-away dreams and the chance to build a forever home—with her.

My Thoughts:  This is a sweet book. Two people who have been hurt by their family learn to trust and love.

Sophie is amazing. She is an entrepreneur. She helps animals in need, but her greatest attribute is that she is the caretaker of her disabled niece. Her niece was born premature and is basically blind. Sophie has been the constant in this young girls life. She has cared for her and protected her when her sister has been out finding herself and being a negligent mother.

Brad comes from a family where there wasn't a lot of affection. He has been hurt psychologically in his work field, and doesn't trust himself to love. He is investigating Sophie's father and doesn't need the distraction of his budding feelings for her.

What I loved about this book is that two people with a lot of insecurities and emotional pain are able to open their hearts and find love. The supporting characters are people you would like to surround yourself with (well, most of them). This is a patchwork family. Broken people, who aren't related, coming together to make a whole.

The book is clean with kissing.
