"Child of Mine" by David & Beverly Lewis {Giveaway!}

About this book:

  “Jack Livingston has been raising his nine-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. While he travels for work, Natalie is lovingly cared for by Laura, an Amish nanny who loves her as her own.
   Kelly Maines is nearing the end of her rope. Her baby was kidnapped, the apparent victim of a black market adoption ring, and for eight years, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. Now, there's one last lead from a private investigator: Just a few miles away lives a girl who matches the profile. Could this, at long last, be her beloved child?
   Desperately, Kelly initiates a "chance" meeting with Jack Livingston. It goes really well. So well, in fact, that Jack asks her out. One date leads to another, and before she can come clean with her original motives, Kelly realizes Jack is falling for her--and she for him.
   Now how can she tell Jack why she's really here? And having gotten to know Natalie, what if she isn't her long-lost daughter, after all? This was all supposed to be so simple.
  But nothing in Natalie's world is simple…”

Series: As of now, no.

Spiritual Content- Prayers & Scriptures are said; Church going & talks about God.

Negative Content- Minor Cussing including: a ‘blasted’; Like the back-cover says, Kelly’s daughter was kidnapped but what it doesn’t say is that her husband kidnapped Emily and sold her for money (Which he used to buy drugs and died of an O.D. of them).  

Sexual Content- Many not-detailed kisses & a semi detailed kiss; *Spoiler* Laura says her & her beau “got the cart before the horse, if you know what I mean”; A baby was born out of wedlock (not what you would think, no details). *End of Spoiler*

-Kelly Maines
-Jack Livingston

My personal Rating-
{So. Many. Plot. Twists.}
Some other reviewers have said this book started slow, which I can see because Kelly & Jack didn’t meet till half-way through the book, but once they did it went much faster. ;)
