When a long-anticipated holiday takes an unexpected turn...

Aussie farm girl Matilda Moore kicks off her dream trip to London by flat-sitting for her childhood friend. But London is daunting, crowded and noisy, and that's before Tilly finds a baby on the doorstep. There's a note attached: "Henry, if you’re reading this, please know the worst has happened.”

Probability expert Henry Church has finally returned home to Wirralong, Australia, to see his grandparents when he gets a phone call from Tilly that breaks every statistical analysis. The probability of him being the father is marginal. Plus, he knows nothing about caring for a baby. Emotions and socializing are even bigger mysteries. He begs Tilly for help—can she cut her holiday short and bring the baby to Wirralong?

Tilly will do almost anything for her childhood best friend, but falling in love with him and his motherless baby is an emphatic no. Out of the question. Or is it?

    The story was wonderful filled with twist and turns, kept my interest. I didn’t like the few ugly words wasn’t necessary.

    Nice love story with a beginning twist and a sudden ending. In between there’s a little intrigue and few upsets, but all is love.
  • Life Lessons

    By LoupieLoo
    A romance unlike many other books I’ve read a strong, confident woman with a big heart loves the man she grew up with. He’s stoic and what people perceive as cold. But that is from outward appearances. Aren’t we like that too. Come to a conclusion about someone’s personality based on what we see without really trying to get to know the real person inside. You could certainly not know what the benefits would be if you just take the time. Tilley certainly learns this lesson and by her encouragement and love, Henry does too. Certainly learned a lot of colloquial words common to Australians in this book. Sometimes it was hard to follow along but certainly worth the time to expand my knowledge. I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher and am voluntarily leaving my review.
