Title: The Adoption Surprise

Author: Zoey Marie Jackson

Publisher: Harlequin Love Inspired

Release Date: February 22, 2022

Genre: Contemporary Romance (Sweet/Clean)

Separated at birth and determined to become a family.

“She looks like me!” When her orphaned niece utters those words, Kelsey Harris is shocked—not only that Morgan has a long-lost twin but that the grieving five-year-old spoke at all. Overjoyed by Morgan and Mia’s instant connection, Kelsey and Zach Johnson, Mia’s widowed adoptive father, agree to be friends—and only friends. But can they ignore their growing feelings when the matchmaking sisters put their plan into action?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

This was a sweet story that highlighted how families are made in many ways. Mia and Morgan were adorable girls and I loved their instant connection and the healing it brought to Morgan. I also loved watching as Kelsey and Zack worked together to make sure the girls had the time together they needed.

Kelsey struggled with accepting the fact that she was actually stepping into her late sister’s place as mother, rather than aunt, to Morgan. She loved Morgan, yet struggled to overcome her grief and the belief that she wasn’t as good at being a mother as her sister had been.

Zach had lost his faith and direction. When his wife died, despite his anguished prayers, he felt that God had not seen fit to heal her even though Zach did all he could and put all of his trust in God. He had quite the journey back to understanding what God had in store for his family.

I enjoyed this story. The building up of the romantic relationship between Zack and Kelsey moved at a nice pace throughout most of the book. I felt like the jump to love and devotion right at the end was a bit rushed, but still very enjoyable.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
