Teach Your Heart by Tracey Alvarez

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Teach Your Heart is the third book in Tracey Alvarez’s series of novels taking place in New Zealand’s northern reaches. I really enjoyed this book and I’ve read the previous two books, but didn’t remember a lot of the details. Alvarez has the habit of carrying forth characters from past novels without much exposition of their past stories. I would have preferred just a couple of students reintroducing the characters and their back stories so I didn’t have to go online to remind myself about these people.

This book involves two likable people who have their own insecurities to overcome. Gracie, the daughter of a supposedly soulless corporate lawyer, has fled her father’s expectations to drift around Europe. Now she’s returned and needs a job to escape the future her father has lined up for her. She takes a job as nanny/au pair/homeschool teacher to Owen Bennett’s lovable nieces and nephew. Owen, a workaholic doctor in Botany Bay, has had to suddenly take custody of his sister’s children. He doesn’t know much about the day-to-day concerns about taking care of children and can’t keep someone employed.

He offers the job to Gracie despite his misgivings about his attraction to his new employee. Well, you know where this is going. The children fall for Gracie; she helps Owen relax and enjoy the kids, and they give in to their sexual attraction to each other. There is a minor complication and misunderstanding, but overall this is an enjoyable read following two lovely characters find each other and their new family.

I was provided a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
