"Sweet Charity" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “A vivacious, undisciplined two-year-old named Charity has Shauna Alexander seriously questioning her calling as a child care provider. The toddler seems to thrive on wreaking havoc wherever she goes. Pastor Kent Chapman's heart is still raw from losing his wife. He knows he spoils his daughter, but he can't help but see his wife in her. Then during a computer repair mix-up, Kent finds himself distracted by Shauna. But when Shauna's and Kent's worlds collide over the rebellious toddler's behavior, both must learn to accept responsibility and work toward reconciliation. Will the Lord cause Kent to choose between his daughter and his heart? Or will love sweeten Charity and their future?”
