Book review: Making Ends Meet - Anna Clifton (Reviews By Mom)



From Anna Clifton comes a sweet, emotional, beautiful romance about a man whose life has been derailed and the unexpected woman who can help him get it back on track.

‘It’s for other reasons that I won’t need a nanny beyond a month.’

Twenty-three year old nanny Somer Sullivan has never had a job quite like this one: fix the messed-up, out-of-control life of high-profile artist and thirty-something dad Harry Halligan. But Somer is organised, efficient and not afraid of a challenge. She will do everything Harry needs her to do, including bringing his ex-wife home for good.

‘One month, Harry, and I’ll be out of here.’

Harry Halligan doesn’t want a nanny, but he needs one—he needs Somer. She’s the only one who can reach his troubled daughter, who can bring some measure of peace to his home. But as Somer advances her mission to fix his life, a few things become clear: his ex-wife might not be the answer, and Somer just might be. But Somer is running like hell from something in her own life and hiding in his.

Only one thing is for sure. Harry now has less than a month to make the hardest decision he’ll ever have to make—a decision that will change all of their lives forever.
 


Review By Mom
Making Ends Meet tells the beautiful story of  Somer and Harry Halligan, brought together by intervention of friends and relatives, not knowing what all live-changing impact their encounter would bring.
They both have had their share in life when it comes to grief, loss, feelings of disappointment in love. And above all, they both share a strong feeling of guilt and responsibility for what happened tot hem and to the people they love.
This makes them very reluctant and hesitant when it comes to opening up to someone else and for love.
Anna Clifton describes perfectly and with such beautiful prose how the main characters feel. The dialogues between all the characters in the book are heartwarming and contain such a lot of wisdom. Even Harry’s 7 year old daughter is extremely clever when it comes to relationships, honesty… You immediately feel familiar and sympathizing with Harry, his children and Somer.
It’s a moving story, romantic and not at all cheesy; I loved to read it. Once started it’s hard to put the book down.
