The first in a three book series called Searching for Sarah. Come meet Sarah and begin her journey….
Sarah Keller is convinced that her Mr. Right is stuck in traffic…in another country…on another planet. ‘Thirty-one and still single’ isn’t how she wants to be introduced by her dad. That’s why she’s on five dating websites, posing as anything from an avid gardener to a crazed thrill seeker.
Sam Turner is a single dad, workaholic, who owns his own company. Long-term relationships have never worked out for him. That’s why he needs a nanny.
When a mutual friend suggests Sarah take the job temporarily, everything changes for them both. Sarah begins falling for the man who meets almost none of her online criteria. And when strange things start happening—things that jeopardize the safety of Sarah, Sam is the last person she would imagine is hiding something.
Sarah is the only child born to Jeffrey and Rose Keller. Her mother died minutes after giving birth, thus giving Sarah a tremendous responsibility of taking care of her dad. But if you ask Jeffrey, that would be an absurd notion. Still, Sarah is always checking to see that her dad is happy, fed, and listening nightly to his album collection—one that he built with his late wife. To see the smile on his face when he sits down after a busy day, listening to Dinah Washington, is all Sarah needs to go to bed happy.
Isn’t every adolescent searching for what they’re supposed to do in life? Well Sarah is in her thirties, and still hasn’t figured it out. She’s gone to school enough years to have a doctorate in three disciplines, but still hasn’t committed to a life plan. Or is it, that she’s confused what she wants to do with never finding who she wants to do it with?
She’s on her new course of study, law, when she runs into Sam Turner. Completely off her radar, Sarah just needs a place to live. Her last boyfriend, with whom she moved to Charleston with to make a new beginning, left her ten minutes after pulling into town. She should’ve known when all he packed for the venture was a duffle bag. Now, trying to make a new start on her own, she agrees to be the temporary nanny to Sophie. Just until her apartment comes through, though. The realtor says two months tops.
Funny, love sick, and a little unsure of herself when it comes to men, Sarah still searches to find Mr. Right, while living with Mr. Sam Turner. Crazy how you can share the same house with someone and never see them as anything but ‘not the one’!
Always busy, and never having enough hours in the day to get it all done. Sam Turner is the owner of Turner, Inc., a consulting firm in Charleston, South Carolina. He is also the single dad to Sophie Turner, a vivacious little blonde haired girl who asks millions of questions and loves being read to at night by her dad. Now that Sam’s friend, who helps him out, is moving away, he needs someone to help in taking Sophie to preschool and picking her up. And maybe doing some light laundry, and not to mention buying some groceries and perhaps preparing a few peanut butter sandwiches…just until he gets home. Then he’ll pop in a pizza in the microwave, and eat it while watching The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He’s seen every episode, or at the very least heard them while going over financials for his clients.
Enter Sarah Keller. A pretty, unassuming, young lady, looking for a temporary place to live. And it couldn’t come at a better time. The fact that she has a culinary degree doesn’t hurt, either. But none of this means much while he’s stuck in a relationship with an expiration date in the very near future. After that, all bets are off. And so is his strict routine of staying after work every evening. Why work late when Sarah’s home waiting with dinner and dancing in the kitchen with your little girl?
