Triplets Find A Mom

‘Triplets Find a Mom’ is a 222 page inspirational romance. I have to be honest and say that my child picked up this book because of the puppy on the cover and insisted that I read it. I thought it was going to be similar to ‘Marley and Me’ in that some sad fate awaited the puppy. I read those types of books sometimes, but I’m growing to dislike them.
When I finally started reading it, I realized that this was just a clean, romance that featured a cute puppy. I was okay with that. Sam Goodacre is a single widower with triplet daughters in elementary school. He has two rules, no dogs and no matchmaking.
Polly Bennett is the new teacher from Georgia who is fulfilling her dream of returning to the home town of her childhood memories to escape her competitive family where she feels lost in the mix.
The one thing that I found frustrating while reading this book was that there was a constant back and forth with the two characters about whether or not they were going to start a relationship or not. One minute Sam decides to take a leap, the next he’s pushing Polly away and snapping at her. This goes on through the whole book up until the ending. Some people may like that, but I think it could have been pulled off a little better.
I did like the twist that Polly is a twin herself and therefore, understands what twin life is like. She also immediately knows how to tell the difference between the twins by looking past the identical faces.
This was a sweet story and a great book. It had a lot of witty moments between the characters and fun scenes. It takes place in a small town and Sam lives on the family farm where they host fun events like the Pumpkin Jump. You feel like you’re right there at the festival while reading.
