Revew: Not Through Loving You by Patricia Preston

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.

When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad complete with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her.

Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she's determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad and more unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's put him through, is it too late to form a family and maybe put a song in the good doctor's heart?

Expected publication: June 20th 2017 by Kensington Books

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Kensington via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  It is expected to be released later this month.

This was a real feel good read for me.  Just look at the synopsis.  A doctor deciding to adopt an abandoned baby, a long lost sister (aunt) trying to ensure that the right thing was being done for the baby?  Only heartstrings can be pulled with this one.

The best part of the story for me was actually not the main characters.  I absolutely enjoyed the humor that was brought as a result of Aaron's brother.  I forget how old he was but he definitely acted younger than his age would indicate.  His hijinks brought many giggles from me.

I also enjoyed the chemistry between Aaron and Lia.  While their conflict could have been easily overcome in my opinion, it made for a good read.

All in all I enjoyed this story.
