An Unexpected Family by June Foster

This is a fun novella and makes a good evening's entertainment. Foster has a pleasant writing style, well crafted characters, and a good romantic plot. I like how both of the main characters have issues with their fathers. Grant thinks his father disapproves of him wanting to be a small town veterinarian rather than a part of the family chain of fancy animal spas. Kate is convinced her father thinks she is a loser because she can't make a profitable run of the bakery she inherited from her aunt.

And, of course, Grant and Kate meet over Kate's dog who managed to eat some nuts she had out for baking. The road to romance is not smooth as obstacles arise.

There are several good family issues explored in this novella. Relationships with parents is a big one. I like how Kate and Grant are Christians and going to church is a natural weekly event. The resolution of the issues seemed quick to me but that is often the case with novellas. All in all, a heartwarming read of an evening.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
