Title: The Daddy Coach
Author: Karen Muir
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hoping to vindicate her brother, botanist Gina Dunn poses as a nanny to the man she believes framed him. Even though she grew up in a dysfunctional home, how hard can it be looking after twin four-year-old boys? If she can nurture rare orchids, surely she can handle this.
Instant fatherhood hits contractor Will Sinclair hard when his twin sons he didn’t know existed come to live with him. The rebellious boys reject Will as their real dad, forcing him to turn to Gina, his new nanny, for her “expert” help.
Interacting with Will and his boys as a “daddy” coach, Gina starts to crave the family she’s always longed to have. But Will’s reaction when he learns of her deception isn’t her biggest fear––one of two men she loves is lying…
A cute story!
While Gina’s reason for coming into Will and the boys’ lives was a bit questionable (surely she would have done a tad bit more digging into her brother’s story before concocting this plot? She is a scientist, after all, and even just seeing him during their jail visits it’s clear he’s got some issues) the whole “daddy coaching” aspect was very sweet. Harry and Ian were adorable, and the four of them together lit up the page.
The Daddy Coach is a solid first effort, and Ms. Muir is an author I’m going to keep an eye on.

About the author:
A sense of humor was a must when Karen taught elementary grades and Head Start, and she’s always loved books and movies that make her laugh. Karen’s Fish Out of Water series from Entangled Publishing deals with heroines thrust outside their comfort zones. Their first meetings with their heroes tend to be quirky. An English Lit major at the University of Washington, Karen now reads mostly genre novels. Contemporary and historical romances and mysteries are my favorites. She loves camping–out in the wilds and close to nature–with all the comforts of our motor home. Sitting by a clear mountain stream with a good book to read is her idea of heaven.a Rafflecopter giveaway
