Who can resist a neighbor in need?

Nathan Forester doesn’t know the first thing about kids. So when the daughter he never knew existed arrives on his doorstep, he needs help, fast! His unlikely ally is next-door neighbor and single mother Cheryl Henshaw. Nathan and Cheryl don’t exactly see eye to eye, but neither can say no to a helping hand.

Renovating Fitzgerald House is Nathan’s chance to finally prove he’s no longer the unreliable twin—and it seems possible with Cheryl by his side. Suddenly their practical arrangement has become something much more. Trust isn’t easy, but they’re stronger when they work together.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

Nathan nodded, rubbing at the ache in his chest.

”I can’t screw up,” he said.

“You’ll figure everything out.” Pop slapped him on the back. “Just like we did.”

He couldn’t do this alone. He wasn’t prepared.

There had to be someone else he could tap to take care of Isabella.

He thought back to the women he’d dated in Savannah. There was Tracie, but she could barely take care of herself. Gabby—aptly named since she talked everyone’s ear off—was kind of an airhead. A nice airhead, but still not right.

He’d never been attracted to the motherly types.

The only mother he knew was…Cheryl. And they lived next door to each other.

He released a deep breath. Cheryl.

About the Author: Nan Dixon spent her formative years as an actress, singer, dancer and competitive golfer. But the need to eat had her studying accounting in college. Unfortunately, being a successful financial executive didn’t feed her passion to perform. When the pharmaceutical company she worked for was purchased, Nan got the chance of a lifetime—the opportunity to pursue a writing career. She’s a five-time Golden Heart® finalist and award winning author, lives in the Midwest and is active in her local RWA chapter and on the board of a dance company. She has five children, three sons-in-law, two granddaughters, one grandson on the way and one neurotic cat.

    Congrats on the tour and thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  2. Thanks for hosting!

  3. What was the time frame for writing this book? Tell us an interesting detail or two, if applicable.

    • Thanks for asking, Mai.

      Sine I’m on contract, I gave myself 5 months to write the book. And since I was a financial exec in a past life–I actually log in and out of a spreadsheet when I’m writing. So drafting took heads-down typing 85 hours. (This was spread over 2 months – because I needed to drop the drafting and work on edits, proposals and publicity for other books.) My Revisions took -111 hours. This was probably longer because the draft came in 20K words over my word count of 80K words. Once I get a revision letter from my editor- I get a month to send those back. When my editor sends me line edits – I get two weeks to turn them in. And then the copy edits – I get a week to review and turn them in. Thanks for asking!
