I received this book for free from Caffeinated Book Reviewer in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


The first in a three book series called Searching for Sarah. Come meet Sarah and begin her journey....
Sarah Keller is convinced that her Mr. Right is stuck in traffic…in another country…on another planet. ‘Thirty-one and still single’ isn’t how she wants to be introduced by her dad. That’s why she’s on five dating websites, posing as anything from an avid gardener to a crazed thrill seeker.
Sam Turner is a single dad, workaholic, who owns his own company. Long-term relationships have never worked out for him. That’s why he needs a nanny.
When a mutual friend suggests Sarah take the job temporarily, everything changes for them both. Sarah begins falling for the man who meets almost none of her online criteria. And when strange things start happening—things that jeopardize the safety of Sarah, Sam is the last person she would imagine is hiding something.

Sarah is 31 and single. She doesn’t have much direction in life. Currently, she’s in law school. She dates but relationships don’t seem to last. Her friend recommends that she nanny for Sam Turner. Sam has it all together a big house, his own company, and a daughter. Sarah nannies for Sam and falls in love with the little girl. She isn’t interested in Sam at first because he seems to have it all. Sarah keeps looking for Mr. right. Could Mr. right be right in front of her?

In ” an Oyster Shell – A book about the main character finding herself.

The Pearls – I always love a book where the character is finding themselves. This seems to be a popular theme for Julieann Dove. The concept was well executed and interesting. I like that Sarah nannies for Sam. It puts them in close proximity and an intriguing story unfolds.

The romance is unexpected for Sarah. It follows a nice pace. Sarah has to kiss a few toads before Mr. Right comes along. Even when things seem to be working out there is conflict. The story ends with you not knowing what to expect in the romance department. This is okay because there are going to be more books.

Sarah was a free-spirited character. She kind of went as the wind blows in the beginning. She settles down more towards the end of the book. Circumstances, in the end, seem to ground her though there is still a little upheaval. The supporting characters were well-developed and defined. It was a strong character driven story.

The Sand – I find the main character a little off-putting at times.

3.5 Pearls!

3.5 Stars
