A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.

Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit's daughters attend. With a masters' degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them--or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.

Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can't let the dead lie.

I loved the McKay girls! Every one of them. They are rough and tough and full of vinegar, except Alex…uh, I mean Alexandra. Emmit’s wife died three years ago and he is left to raise his four darling daughters. Or as some might think of them, little hellions. When he’s called into the school’s office to conference with the new principal, he is knocked for a loop at the beautiful woman he meets. Savannah is shocked to discover that the gang of miscreants that has the school office in an uproar is actually four sisters. And she’s got the hots for their father. This will never do! This is a fast paced, pretty well written romance that actually focuses more on the girls than on the romance. Although I enjoyed Emmit and Savannah, I LOVED the girls! There were definitely moments I felt this was a little over the top because come on, these are children, but I was able to push that aggravation to the side and just enjoy this for what it was. This was a light hearted, family oriented read with a mystery that, if it didn’t actually surprise me, was definitely interesting. I enjoyed it very much! This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley. Dual POV Safe Possible Trigger (view spoiler) Epilogue wraps up this couple but leaves open the opportunity to tell the girls' stories

Complex, intriguing, small town story that includes family, friends, romance, deceit, mystery and suspense…this was a story that kept me reading and kept some twists for the end. Emmit is a man who loves his daughters. He is raising them on his own having been widowed a few months before the story begins. Four unique, headstrong, tenacious and precocious girls that are unusual, to say the least, and have bonded to create an unbreakable force to be reckoned with are the stars of this story. Into the lives of Emmit and his daughters steps Savannah Walker – new school principal. Her first encounter with the sisters during the first week of school is…interesting. Her encounter with their father…even more interesting. Her encounters with others provide background and fodder for the storyline. The story is fast-paced, action-packed, charming, endearing and has a small town cozy feel to it with a bit of the backwoods in dialogue and behavior, at least at times. The bad guy is not revealed till the very end and is done with a bit of drama. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the second book in the series to find out if the questions I had related to a letter will be revealed. I did think the ending a bit abrupt with a significant time span leapt over but all in all this was an interesting and entertaining book. Thank you to NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press, Inc. for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
