Format: Kindle e-book
Rating: 3/5

I purchased this e-book after reading the review at Book Addiction.

Travis is a single father in his early twenties who is in desperate need of a visit from lady luck. After a tragic accident, Travis and his four year old daughter Bella are forced to live in his van whilst he looks for work in the Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. With no other options immediately available, Travis is forced to accept a dangerous job offer that puts everybody else's life in jeopardy. As a result, he must rely upon the kindness of strangers and a few blasts from the past to help him untangle his sticky situation. 

I liked this book. It was a nice, quick and easy read. The book is split between the voices of Travis, Erin (the kind stranger) and Robin (the blast from the past). At first, I was annoyed by how quickly the chapters ended and the voice changed again without ever really learning much about the characters, however by the end the stories intertwine quite nicely. The ending was a little twee for my liking (as was the child character, actually) but it fits the genre just fine. 

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good old silver linings, everything works out in the end, style book. Better still, get it if you were a fan of that Peyton/ Jake and little Jenny storyline in One Tree Hill.
