The Good Daughter by Jane Porter

Love was given to all, except herself . . . Kit Brennan has always been the most grounded of her sisters. A Catholic school English teacher for seventeen years and a constant giver, her decisions have been sound—just not very satisfying. Her fortieth birthday is right around the corner, causing Kit to consider some wilder notions, like skipping right past the love and marriage to raising a child all by herself . . . A girls’ weekend away is just the reprieve Kit needs from school, Mr. Wrongs, and life-changing decisions. It’s there that she meets a man who’s dangerous; a man who challenges who she thought she was, or rather should be. Kit wants to indulge herself this once, but with one of her students in crisis and the weight of her family’s burdens weighing heavy on her heart, Kit isn’t sure if now is the time to let her own desires take flight . .

I read the first book of the Brennan Sisters novels last fall and I really enjoyed it.  I was excited to see it continue with The Good Daughter.  This book is about sister Kit and she's the good egg.  She's a teacher, loves to read and desperately wants to be a mom.   She isn't sure if she wants to adopt or not, because she is just forty.  She wants a man, but he has to be perfect for her.  He can be flawed, but she won't settle for anything but the best.   Jude is a bad boy and boy is he hot! This is a page-turning story that I'd highly recommend.  I can't wait to read the next book, which I'm sure will be about the other sister.  If you enjoy a well churned yarn with memorable characters and realistic situations, pick up this book!  

* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
