Will the kids be able to pull the wool over the adults eyes? I must tell you that this book sounded so familiar to me, like I'd read it before, but if I have it was before August of 2011 as that is when I started posting reviews. Anyway, I really enjoyed this book, even if this is possibly the second time I've read it. The kids are desperate and just when the adults think they have pulled one over on the kids, STOP, things are getting out of control, lol. A nice read when you need something to give you a laugh once in a while. Thank you Pamela for a lovely story.

Alison Stripling receives a letter from Rafe Munroe, the husband, of her deceased sister.  Since the death of his wife he is finding he needs a woman's help in rearing the children and with the household chores usually regulated to his wife.  She jumps at the chance to leave her fancy eastern lifestyle to move to Hope, Kansas to care for her sisters home and six children.  It will be a daunting task to learn a rustic style of living but if her sister was capable of learning she was determined she too would learn.   When she finally arrives it becomes apparent Rafe had not written the letter and even worse he knew nothing of her coming.  The children evidently have it in their head that Aunt Alison would be perfect as their new mom and wife for their dad. At first Rafe wanted her get back on the train until he decided the children needed to be taught a lesson.  So Rafe, not totally convincing Alison, comes up with a plan that will have the children realize they have made a big mistake, which is Aunt Alison is not cut out to be a mom.  The pair do not have a chance when the children have cupid on their side and most importantly God? The author wrote a humorous story of how children can create big trouble although with great intentions.   In this story you have love lost, broken hearts, loneliness, healing, revenge, reconciliation and romance.  God's enduring love comes through in every chapter of this book.  It is a lovely story you will want to read yourself! I highly recommend this story. I rated this book a 5 out of 5. Disclosure:  I purchased this book for my own reading pleasure therefore was not required to write a review. This review is my honest opinion.
