Lindsey Salinger knows that her father would not be happy if
he knew that she was helping the family of the man that killed
her mother in an accident, but she could not hold it against
the five-year-old that needed her now. Lindsey is forced to
contact Zach to see if he can help his nephew and the
grandmother that raised him.
Zach Rundle does not trust Lindsey’s motives but he comes back
home to prove her wrong. At first it looks like he is right
and that his grandmother is fine, but then his grandmother is
forced to ask for help. Lindsey is convinced that Zach should
become the guardian to his nephew, but he knows nothing about
children and he isn’t sold on the idea, but somehow it starts
looking like the right choice.
The Boy Next Door
should be a staple in any Harlequin junkies book collection.
Zach and Lindsey are both well written characters dealing with
realistic situations in their lives that make them both easy
to sympathize with and easy to like. The five-year-old nephew
did not feel too old for his age, something I appreciated.
