Kai Miller didn't have a stable upbringing or a place she could truly call home. As she heads for her job on a cruise ship she finds that a hurricane that was suppose to veer off is heading straight for them. Knowing that leaving town would be best, she grabs some belongings, her friends 2 dogs and heads out in her VW van. In the big traffic mess associated with evacuation Kai comes across three ladies who are heading for the cruise ship. The ladies have run out of gas and Kai offers to give them a ride. Eventually Kai's van runs out of gas and a bus load from the Holy Ghost Church picks them up to help and they seek shelter at the church.
Kai ends up in Daily Texas where she meets the nephew of one of the three ladies, Kemp Eldridge. He plays professional baseball but has injured his shoulder and returned to Daily for recovery and to help out some kids. Nothing has really captured the attention of Kemp except baseball until he meets Kai. Kemp's reputation says he won't be hanging around and Kai desperately wants some place to call home. Daily feels like that kind of place. Will it work out for Kai and Kemp? What about Jen, Jenny, Jennifer?
This was a very fun story. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. It was filled with so much good-ole-fashioned southern humor, which is a blast to read. I found myself laughing out loud in several places. The three ladies were a hoot and I so enjoyed the interaction between them. There was definitely chemistry between Kai and Kemp. You could feel the pull between them as they struggled with what to do with their feelings. This is a light and easy read with no major issues to deal with and the ending is well worth reading the book. This is the third book in the Daily Texas Series but I didn't feel lost by not having read the first two stories. Thank you Bethany House for the complimentary review copy.
