Summary

Following the revelation of her fiancé’s philandering ways, high-powered New York attorney Shannon Turney s wedding is off . At a time like this, the last thing she can handle is family drama. But when she learns how far her brother’s and sister-in-law’s lives have spiraled out of control, the only thought in her mind is the safety of her young niece and nephew. After Shannon is granted custody, she and the children are eager to run long and far from their problems.

The end of the road is Sugar City, a place as delightful as its name implies. In the tiny town, Shannon gets much more of a change than she bargained for. Welcomed with open arms by the townspeople, including the handsome local veterinarian, Shannon and the children slowly begin to heal. But when their idyllic existence is threatened by the return of the children s mother, Shannon has no choice but to return to the courtroom she left behind. She has one last legal battle to fight, and the outcome may mean losing everything she loves.

  

My Review

Legally and Lawfully Yours was a very sweet, heartfelt story as the main character, Shannon, takes her niece and nephew into her life after their mother shows that she is unable to care for them. There were quite a few roadblocks and struggles for Shannon and these children due to all of their past histories. They all had trust issues and other things to work through. I loved how the other characters, especially Phillip and Marj, enveloped Shannon and the kids into their lives and how Phillip's faith in God strengthened Shannon's faith. 

I fell in love with these characters. Shannon with her protective and loving nature towards Neil and Jeanie as she became an adoptive mother to them. Phillip's love for Shannon and the kids and his compassion toward them for their past struggles. Marj's immediate love and bringing so much joy into the children's lives. Other characters who formed a larger family for Shannon and the children and created a home and loving community for them.

The story was engaging. The romance moved quickly at first and then slowed down quite a bit until the end. For the most part things went smoothly with a few more intense moments here and there. I would have liked to have delved a little deeper into the story and the characters' experiences, but it was still a well-told story.

I would recommend Legally Lawfully Yours to those who enjoy Christian romance, the author's other books, or women's fiction. I actually would love to have a sequel to find out what happens to Shannon's brother and the children's father after he's served his time.
