About the Author
Teresa Hill spent seven long years working for a small-town newspaper at Hilton Head Island, S.C., the highlights of which were interviewing Tom Berenger and Charlie Sheen (when they were preparing for their roles in Major League), and being bawled out by Ross Perot (for printing the fact that he'd purchased an oceanfront house on the island).
She spent countless hours covering the most boring of government meetings. During the worst of them, she flipped to the back of her notebook and sketched out scenes for her first novel.
One Halloween, when a mundane story forced her to miss her baby's first trick or treat, she decided she'd had enough of reporting, and she didn't intend to miss anymore "firsts" with her son.
The only other thing she ever wanted to do was write books, so she did, selling her first book, Whose Child is This?, to Silhouette Intimate Moments in 1991.
Since then she's had a second child, quit her job as a newspaper reporter, and discovered it's no picnic to be both a full-time mom and a full-time writer. But she feels incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to do both. Originally from one of the most beautiful parts of the world, central Kentucky, she is an honors graduate of Eastern Kentucky University who currently lives in South Carolina with her husband, two children, and a caramel-colored lop-eared rabbit.
Her son, the fifth-grade math whiz, is busy quizzing his friends on square roots and awarding the winner with leftovers from the lunch his mother packed. Her daughter, now in second grade, spends her day obsessing over her hair and complaining that her mother can't do braids as well as the other mothers.
Teresa's books have appeared on bestseller lists from USA Today, Waldenbooks, and B. Dalton Bookseller. Currently, there are more than one million copies of her books in print, and they are sold around the world in more than a dozen countries.

This was a bit of a surprising book. It was a bit deeper than I had imagined - dealing with some pretty serious issues and relationships. And although one might expect it to be depressing (an it admittedly was at a couple points) it was quite enthralling. The instant attraction and affection between Samantha and Joe really draws you in. Samantha is a good character than shows rel growth. Joe is consistent and a great person in general. Luke is such a poor, confused little boy you just want to give him a hug. Good story as long as you can take the more serious stuff.
This story was absolutely sweet, adorable and charming. The kids kept me laughing all the way through. A single dad, Joe, just trying to do his best and make sure his kids are happy, suddenly wonders what's wrong with his son and why he's trying to collect teeth. Enter the funloving single lady dentist Samantha. She forms an immediate connection to the man, and his kids, but she's hesitant to let it go far. She's been burned. And so has he. Can they both overcome all that and start living for the future? If Luke has anything to say about it they can! A wish to the Toothfairy will surely fix everything, right?
