Small Grain of Sand

Jennifer Mason is a preschool teacher living in New Zealand. She loves all of the children, but twins Simonne and Patrick Durand hold her heart in their small hands. Their single father has rarely picked them up or dropped them off, it's always been a nanny or a neighbor...until now. Now all of the female workers at the preschool have hearts all aflutter over the handsome single father, Phillippe. It's obvious that he's having some schedule problems and he asks that Jennifer be willing to keep the children at the school a bit later. Jennifer, a twin herself, asks that her sister help her after hours. This leads to an amazing situation for both of them, Phillippe needs to take the twins on a boat to Tahiti. He needs someone to care for them both en-route and on the island while he works to build a home for his grandmother. This amazing situation ends up being Jennifer's alone due to an accident that her twin suffers. But will Jennifer be able to keep her heart safe from the handsome Phillippe, or will the cute twins break down her barriers?

This was a cute story, I liked most of it. The characters are well-written. The love story is really great. It seemed like the conflict of the story in the beginning was great and I wondered what would happen, but when it finally happened it didn't feel as if the build up to it was even worth it. It just fell flat for me. I liked the feeling of the Tahitian island, and the characters that lived there. This is a cute story, I'm not disappointed that I took the time to read it.

I was able to borrow a copy of this book from my local library.
