"His Precious Inheritance" by Dorothy Clark

About this book:

  The Baby Surprise
  After an adorable toddler arrives on her boss's doorstep, Clarice Gordon's job offer transforms from full-time journalist to part-time nanny. Clarice agrees to care for Charles Thornberg's little brother as long as she can continue writing. But soon Charles stirs emotions in Clarice that are far from professional…
  Charles never dreamed he had a long-lost brother, but he'll do everything to ensure the little one is loved. And Clarice amazes him with the warmth and care she shows the boy—so different from the career women he's known. Charles doesn't like surprises in his neatly ordered life, though thanks to this one, he may have stumbled upon the family he's always wanted…”

My personal Rating-
I almost didn’t pick this book up because of the cover—I know, I know, that sounds bad, but this photographer really doesn’t like the angle—but I’m glad I did as I enjoyed this one. While the ending did feel a bit rushed, I really liked all the historical mentions of different things in this book.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
