Margaret Daley and Love Inspired have released the 4th installment in the Caring Canine series, The Nanny's New Family.  Most people know how loyal a companion a dog can be, but Ms. Daley has opened my eyes as to how a dog can be much more than just a pet. 
Usually the cover is what draws me to a book and this one just reached out to my heart.  It's both inviting and sweet.  The back cover gives us a glimpse at what the story is about. 
Brief Description:
Annie Knight has her work cut out for her as the McGregor family's newest nanny. Dr. Ian McGregor means well, but the distracted single dad's lost touch with his four kids. The new nanny brings much-needed calm to the chaos, including finding a service dog that could be a real lifesaver. And soon the good doctor's making Annie's heart respond in ways it hasn't for years. But Annie's cheery demeanor hides a heart-wrenching secret that's as much a part of her as her carefully hidden scars. Annie doesn't think she deserves happiness—but Ian and his kids will show the caretaker that with the love of family, everything's possible.

This is such a sweet story.  We are introduced to two troubled souls in Annie Knight and Ian McGregor.  I was immediately drawn to Annie and her compassion.  She wants to help children in difficult situations and she is very good at her job. 
 Ian's life has been turned upside down.  2 years ago his wife passed away leaving him raise their 4 children alone.  Luckily his aunt moved in to help and six months ago she passed away.  Needless to say his house and life have been gradually on a downward spiral.  He and his family need stability, organization and direction.  
Annie is hired as the new nanny, but as she steps in to get the family organized, of course this doesn't come easily or as quickly as she had imagined.  
This story is laced with heart break, humor and a good romance. 
I loved it!
The characters will definitely pull you in, but the storyline will keep you turning the pages until the end.  This is a good, clean story. 
I would recommend it to anyone. 
Thank you Ms. Daley and Love Inspired for gifting me with this book for a honest review without bias.
