First-grade teacher Joy Kelliher has two new students—twin boys who belong to her high school sweetheart. If teaching Nick Capello’s sons wasn’t difficult enough, the widower’s also her neighbor…and competing for the principal job she wants. Now with little matchmakers drawing Joy and Nick together, can they overcome a painful past to build the family Joy’s always wanted?
My thoughts: I'm not going to lie, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for twins, since they run in my family (as well as my husband's, since my MIL is a twin) and I have thought how much fun it could be to have twins. I can only imagine how much trouble they might get into too, as Nick's sweet boys did in this book!
I also loved that this is a story about high school sweethearts who wide up both applying for the same job, which creates even more sparks. Poor Joy is really put through the ringer.
I enjoyed the pacing of this story and getting to know the characters as they work through past hurts and feelings. This is a delightful story to pick up and enjoy!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

More from Jill
Back in 2019, when my editor sent me a cover mock-up for my third Love Inspired book A Mother for His Twins, I was thrilled to see the art department had used a picture of my hero’s twin boys, Jordan and Tyler Capello.
I had so much fun developing the characters of these two little rascals. Although they were twins, I wanted to make sure they each had their own unique personality.
Once I had Tyler’s character sketch completed, I went to work developing Jordan. Unlike his brother who is the outgoing one of the two, I wanted Jordan to be more quiet and shy than his twin. That’s when I decided to draw on my own experience as a child.
Like Jordan, I had a speech impediment when I was a child. I was unable to pronounce the letter R. Because of this, I was teased by my classmates. To make matters worse, once a week, my speech teacher would come and pull me from my classroom for my private session. I can still hear the giggles and murmuring that filled the room. Thankfully, with a lot of instruction and practice, I was able to overcome the impediment.
Life is full of obstacles. Looking back at what we’ve overcome gives us the confidence to keep pressing forward when we know God will never leave us.
