Review: Sunny Days for Sam by Jennifer Shirk


Published: April 2012
Length: 192 pages
Source: bought on Kindle
My Rating: *****--5 Stars

My Review: What a darling story!! Sunny moved back to town to care for her dying grandmother and is left with a huge medical debt. She is working like crazy to get things paid off so that she can return back to college. When workaholic Sam moves to town for the summer with his two small kids, he is in need of a nanny and Sunny somehow manages to get the job.

My Review:
I love how bright, sunny, and cheerful Sunny is. She's had a rough go in life, but she doesn't let it bring her down. Her name definitely fits her. Sam is cynical and super busy, but glimpses of his deep-down self shine through occasionally, giving the reader a view of how and why Sunny feels that spark of attraction. The kids are so cute and precocious.

I think my two favorite parts were the parade and the phone and when Sam realizes that not everyone is using him.

some mild swearing, no violence, kissing.

About the Author:
Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy-which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantic-at-hearts come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She writes sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Samhain Publishing, Avalon Books/Montlake Romance and now Entangled Publishing. She won third place in the RWA 2006 NYC's Kathryn Hayes Love and Laughter Contest with her first book, THE ROLE OF A LIFETIME. Recently, her novel SUNNY DAYS FOR SAM won the 2013 Golden Quill Published Authors Contest for Best Traditional Romance.

Lately she's been on a serious exercise kick. But don't hold that against her.
