Just because Wendy Smith is a trauma nurse, it doesn’t mean that she has come to terms with the fact that her mother died from Huntington’s, a hereditary disease she is terrified she may also have. Wendy is determined to keep to herself and avoid involvements at any cost. Being attracted to hot single dad Dr. Tom Faber is something she doesn’t want to even contemplate. However she doesn’t count on the relationship which develops between her and his daughter. The chemistry between Wendy and Tom is intense and despite her fears, she slowly falls harder for the doctor and his daughter. Can Tom help Wendy face her fears and finally have the test which will tell her once and for all if she wins arise of Huntington’s? Will two lost souls be able to create a future and a family together? Finding Her Forever Family is a sweet, romantic story which at times was an emotional roller coaster.

Traci Douglass’ Finding Her Forever Family was so much more than I expected. I expected to find an easy, straight-forward read. What I got was a story with depth and multi-layered characters. Wendy Smith is an ER nurse at Anchorage Mercy Hospital. Her whole life she has been living with the possibility of a Huntington's disease diagnosis hanging over her head. Her mother died from the disease when Wendy was ten-years-old. Now, Wendy is approaching 30 and her desire for a child is stronger than ever. Wendy’s three older brothers have all been tested with negative results. Wendy is sure that means she will be positive and doesn't want to know for sure. Wendy has spent her entire adult life having flings, nothing serious, and keeping people at a distance. She doesn’t want to risk leaving behind loved ones to suffer, if she does in fact have the disease. But when she witnesses the birth of her twin niece and nephew, her desire to have a family hits her like a Mac truck. Tom Faber is an OB at Anchorage Mercy Hospital. He generally works long hours, which he’s used to. But Tom's life has changed with the arrival of his twelve-year-old daughter Samantha. A daughter he has no relationship with and has hardly ever seen. After Samantha's mother, Tom's ex-wife, dies of an overdose, Tom becomes the only family Samantha has, outside of his parents. Samantha has always been told her father didn't love her or want her in his life. This couldn't be further from the truth. Understandably, their relationship is difficult. Meeting in the hospital cafeteria, Wendy and Samantha strike up a friendship. While Samantha's counselor is away, Wendy fills in for her. Wendy not only becomes Samantha's friend and sounding board, but someone Samantha trusts and who she tells all of her secrets and fears to. Noticing the way the two interact, Tom asks Wendy to help him “I want you to teach me how to be a better father to my daughter.” Wendy agrees, but neither expects their attraction to each other to be so strong and powerful. Tom wreaks havoc on the carefully constructed walls and barriers Wendy has built around herself. He challenges her and makes her want things she doesn't feel she can have. Tom is a man who never stops fighting. He never gives up on the love he has for his daughter or Wendy, when they both desperately keep trying to push him away. Finding Her Forever Family wasn't necessarily a story that blew me away. It was one of those stories that kept chugging along. With Huntington's disease and a broken family storyline, the story had the potential to be really dark and deep. Traci did a good job of keeping the story light, while also giving you insight into the characters and their struggles. Thus, making you rethink your initial assessment of them. **Received a copy from the author and reviewed voluntarily.**

4 1/2 STARS! Two lonely souls collide and resistance is futile! She's determined not to let anyone become attached to her, he's trying his best to put down solid roots ... their philosophies are mismatched, but yet they seem to click. Can he be the push she needs to let herself live? Really enjoyed their story! Great characters, an interesting plot and an ending not to be missed! Trauma nurse Wendy Smith lost her mom early to a hereditary disease that might possibly have her in it's sights for the future. She's dedicated to helping others and living her life to it's fullest, no matter what might come. The one thing she's denied herself is love and that ultimate happily ever after of a family. She can't risk it. Doctor Tom Faber finds himself at a crossroads in his life. He's finally getting to be a part of his tween daughter's life, but she's not happy at all to be a part of his. He's hanging on by a thread in this tumultuous ride of instant fatherhood, but he's not sure what more he can do to reach her. When Wendy starts to connect with his wayward child, things start looking up ... but based on her plans for herself, where will that leave him and his daughter when they start to fall for her?

The story about nurse Wendy Smith, and Dr. Tom Faber is a touching, sweet, at times heartbreaking but also heartwarming story. Wendy lost her mother to a devastating disease at a young age. A disease that is hereditary and has molded the woman she is today. Tom has just gotten custody of his twelve year old daughter after his ex overdoses. Sam only heard bad things about her dad and not only has she lost her mom, but she’s been uprooted from everything she knew. to live with a father she doesn’t know. Will the three of them take a chance at opening their hearts and finding hope and love, or will fear make them miss the best things of life? I was entrusted a copy of this book.
