Changing your life is never simple…

Hoping to start over, Jack Tomlinson intends to leave his hometown—until twin babies are dropped on his doorstep. He needs help, and the best nanny he knows is Laramie Chambers.

Jack was so ready to wipe the dust of the small town he grew up in off his feet and start fresh in a place where his past didn’t confront him every day. And when he unexpectedly becomes a single dad, things really get complicated.

I liked the way Laramie cared for those around her. It was a deeply embedded part of her nature. Her interactions with the adorable twins were very sweet!

I was touched by Jack’s desire for forgiveness and a chance to go back in time to change his last encounter with his dad. He carried so many burdens and so much guilt! However, his tendency to run away when things got rough made it difficult for others to trust him.

Laramie’s brother Landon had an unsolved mystery, which could be a hint that he will be the hero in an upcoming story, however, there were other situations that I was expecting to be resolved which were not. Also, the ending felt a bit rushed. I had a difficult time believing Laramie would have just ignored all the things that had her concerned about Jack.

An Unexpected Arrangement is a serious story with lots of introspection.

If you enjoy small-town romance about second chances, consider adding this to your library.
