    4 Crazy Stars! This was a cute story! I was sucked in right from the hilarious start down to the sweet ending. I did feel like it did lack some in more story about Bella's eating problem and solution. That did seem to be a major issue throughout and then it was like the solution (for lack of a better word) was just skimmed over. I also thought there should have been a little more courtship between Cameron and Harper. Overall though, it was a good read and kept me entertained during a long day at 4 Crazy Stars!

    A romance is what the bookish heart needed for Valentine's Day. It didn't disappoint either! It had every element that I look for in a romance. It had great characters with chemistry. There was side elements that deepened the plot. There was passion in parts. Still it wasn't the best romance that I have ever read. Sometimes you weren't sure who was telling the story though.

Nor was I fond of the loser making an appearance at the end of the story. Totally unnecessary. In the end, it was a solid story that ended up coming together. Yeah, I will probably read the next book in the series. 3.5/5

    Better than expected. I have never heard of this author and read this book because it was a Bookbub freebie. Honestly, those are usually misses for me.

It wasn't perfect but the things it did deliver on made me forgiving with the things that didn't work as well for me. What it did do was really dive into the two main characters. It's a slow burn romance meaning that the characters don't get together for most of the novel but are interacting closely. It also didn't rely on physical chemistry to establish a connection, though that is there. This novel is not big on sex scenes and the rare steamy scenes are written fairly vaguely. That suits me fine as I'd rather leave details out if a writer doesn't write them to my satisfaction. I liked the connection of Harper to her sister and the establishment of her close family dynamic. I liked the heroine's spunk and vulnerability. The Hero, Cameron, took a while to grow on me but he did over the course of the book. I did have to give him a side eye for staying with his girlfriend for so long while he occasionally flirted and developed feelings for Harper. At least we didn't have to see his relationship with this other woman too up close. What we get is mostly to establish that they don't belong together. I also liked the connection between the Harper and the Cameron's child Bella. I don't think it was quite shown why this child ran off so many nannies other than having a messed up eating habit/disorder. We are told she is spoiled but also lonely. I got the lonely vibe but the spoiled part was mostly just her being a typical child that age with very few people who payed consistent attention to her. That included her father. I didn't really understand his distance at the start of the book, especially when he made time for a girlfriend. (Again more side eying of Cameron commenced) I had to work past that to get behind him later. Like I mentioned earlier there were some things that worked less for me that I won't get into but overall I could forgive them based on the deeper look into the characters and developing a sense of the relationship outside of the physical. I'd check out more by this author in the future.

    I am so happy to have read this book. It was such a wonderful story and the characters captured my heart. Harper has many jobs to pay the rent , with her ex Billy gone now. One is working parties. She thought she was going to a childrens party, boy was she surprised when she gets there, it turns out to be a bachelor party. Not good. Everything is a mess. She needs this job to pay the rent. The evening can't get any worse, can it? Yes it can. Next day, applies for a Nanny job, oh no same house. N I am so happy to have read this book.

    Harper Kirkpatrick is a beautiful and talented design school graduate who can't seem to finish anything she starts or find a job in her chosen career field. She's been told this all her life, even from her boyfriend who up and leaves her high and dry in Savannah to pursue his dream in the California world of filmmaking. Working for as an entertainer for children's parties isn't paying the bills fast enough so when her boss offers her a chance to make more money, Harper doesn't even blink. At lea Harper Kirkpatrick is a beautiful and talented design school graduate who can't seem to finish anything she starts or find a job in her chosen career field. She's been told this all her life, even from her boyfriend who up and leaves her high and dry in Savannah to pursue his dream in the California world of filmmaking. Working for as an entertainer for children's parties isn't paying the bills fast enough so when her boss offers her a chance to make more money, Harper doesn't even blink. At least she doesn't until she realizes that the job is stripping for a bachelor party. Cameron Bennett is a wealthy businessman and architect who works constantly to restore as many buildings/homes as he can in an effort to preserve Savannah's history. He's also a widower and single father struggling to help his 4yr old daughter past an eating disorder that seems to be more psychological than anything else. He knew throwing a bachelor party for his college buddy was a bad idea and once he sees Harper, his doubts are reinforced because while she's the hottest thing he's seen in a long time especially dressed in her Catwoman suit, he knows she's no stripper and after a minor disaster calls a halt to the entertainment and sends her on her way. Harper is now desperate because she's sure she's going to get fired and evicted all in the same breath. She begins a job search and answers an ad for a nanny. Ok, so she doesn't have any experience but the salary is way too good for her to pass up the opportunity to try. When she shows up for her interview, it is none other than at the home of her most recent failure. Nonetheless she pushes through and lands the job but soon realizes that she just maybe in over head and her heart. This was a great and easy read with relatable subject matter. The characters were funny, heartwarming and completely believable. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and CAN NOT wait to read the others in the series.

    This was a good book for the most part but I did have a few things that bugged me. Several large issues where mentioned but never really explained. I felt that the author could have added a lot more depth to the characters and their personal stories. If the author just wanted to keep it a simple romance then the issues, in my opinion, should have never been mentioned.

    After graduating from design school, Harper Kirkpatrick couldn’t find a job. Needing to earn some money so she wouldn’t get evicted, she got a temporary position working as being the entertainment for children's parties.

It didn’t take long for the host to realize she wasn’t experienced and send her on her way. Single father Cameron Bennett is a wealthy architect who works long hours restoring buildings in Savannah. Needing a nanny for his 4-year-old daughter, Bella, and help for his housekeeper, he places an ad. Harper is desperate for money so she applies even though she doesn’t have any experience with children. Imagine her shock when her interview is at the very house where she messed up at the bachelor party. She had to go in because she couldn’t pass up the chance to make the money the job was offering and it came with an apartment. She was thrilled to get the job. But could she take care of the little girl? I really liked this book. Even though Harper was wacky in her dress and behaviour, she had a good heart. I liked her a lot. Harper was wonderful with Bella. Bella clearly had issues, proven in her eating disorder. But Harper patiently worked with her on this. Cameron was a surprise. His earlier life was waaaay different from his current, wealthy one. Not everyone in this story was wonderful, though. Like Cameron’s girlfriend, Kimmy. She was someone you couldn’t help dislike. Even though the ending was a bit fast, I liked the way things turned out in this heartwarming book.

    We are introduced to Harper Kirkpatrick when she shows up to deliver a performance at a child’s birthday party, wearing a catsuit aka Catwoman…only she was sent to perform at a bachelor party for some very drunk guys.

Fast forward a bit We are introduced to Harper Kirkpatrick when she shows up to deliver a performance at a child’s birthday party, wearing a catsuit aka Catwoman…only she was sent to perform at a bachelor party for some very drunk guys. Except for Cameron Bennett. He’s stone cold sober. Cameron quickly recognizes that something is not right with the “dancer” that was hired for the bachelor party but Harper vainly tries to pull off a performance. It doesn’t go so well and Cameron escorts her out. Fast forward a bit and Harper applies for a nanny position at, yep, you guessed it: Cameron’s home for his little girl! Their story truly is all about the dance they do to keep their distance from one another and how they try to help little Bella. Bella will make you smile, make you shake your head, and break your heart all at the same time. The author did a great job writing Bella’s character and I really enjoyed how the three seemed to work thru their problems. Loved, loved, loved Cameron’s “staff” – they have sneaky senses of humor that I really enjoyed. And Kimmy, Cameron’s girlfriend? Hooboy! And Harper’s best friend in Savannah? It’s wonderful to have a friend like him. Great read – I read it straight thru in an evening but it IS book length. I just stayed up later than I should have. I can’t wait to read about the rest of the “Windy City” gal pals!

    My main reason for selecting this book was because I was curious as to why the hero's daughter, Bella, was so haunted. I also like stories where the heroine connects first with the hero's child(ren). "Finding Southern Comfort" has a decent storyline that involves the heroine's shiftless ex, the hero's stuck up, workaholic, sort of girlfriend, a young daughter (Bella) who only eats cereal, a flighty heroine (Harper) and a hero (Cameron) who is trying his best to navigate it all.

Overall the story flowed well although it probably could have been about 50 pages shorter. Side issues like Cameron's problems with his parents and his in-laws were clearly a major problem for him but the reader only received a glancing mention of why. Thankfully, Cameron managed to reconcile the relationships but really, it was done in a rather hurried fashion without the reader really knowing what motivated the hero to do so. The main characters don't get together until the second last chapter of the story and the scene is lovely if understated. I really liked the relationship between Harper and her sister and am contemplating reading the sister's story. I might have given this book three stars but the fatal error of misspelling Billie Holiday's name was simply unforgivable therefore, minus one star. After all was said and done, I still never found out why Bella wouldn't eat.

    The only thing more embarrassing than finding that her gig was at a bachelors' party instead of a kiddies event, was finding herself back at the same address applying for a job as a nanny. However, one look at the little girl Bella, tells Harper that she is exactly where she needs to be. At first glance, Harper and Cameron are a mismatched pair, but as they find common ground, they are in fact more in tune with one another than one would have thought.

However, one look at the little girl Bella, tells Harper that she is exactly where she needs to be. At first glance, Harper and Cameron are a mismatched pair, but as they find common ground, they are in fact more in tune with one another than one would have thought. This gentle romance touches the heart on more than one level as Cameron and Harper combine forces in trying to break through Bella's reserve to discover what is holding her back from eating. It speaks of brokenness, a divided family and unresolved issues that need to be confronted. Harper is exactly what the small family needs and as she befriends both father and daughter, her unconventional personality brings hope and healing. I enjoyed this well-written novel and found myself becoming immersed in the lives of the characters, feeling for them and trusting that they would find the solution each needed. This is a tender romance that touched my heart.

But the thing that really drew me into this book was the part about the 4 year old kid that didn't want to eat anything but baby cereal. As a mother, I was shocked. Does that really happen these days? How can a kid survive life with just that? I've heard of kids having to drink Pediasure because they are lacking nutrition, but really just baby cereal? I don't think there is any kid that will say no to sweets. Anyways, it does have a happy ending for both the kid who only eats baby cereal and the main characters.

After her performance Poor Harper is so mad that her boss had sent her to perform at such an event, that she immediately quits. As luck would have it, she applies for a Nanny Job, and low and behold who would be her new boss, but the sexy Cameron himself! 
 
Cameron needs a nanny for his young daughter Bella and he hires Harper immediately deciding that the young woman could bring some fun into his solemn daughter's life. I had a lump in my throat whilst reading about little Bella, she refused to eat anything but baby food and is quiet and withdrawn. I fell in love with all the characters from Harpers quirky dress sense to Cameron's rock hard body and big blue eyes. This was such an emotional read. I felt like punching Cameron's girlfriend and cuddling Bella. The chemistry between the two is sizzling! This story had me enraptured from the moment I started reading. I couldn't put my kindle down until I'd finished the entire thing! Now I am left wanting more Harper and Cameron! I will defiantly be reading the next book in the series! 
Highly recommended read, five stars! ~~~~Sara's Review~~~~ I was given an ARC in return for my honest opinion. So what's my honest opinion, well I loved it. Harper just had her boyfriend walk out on her and now she is trying to make a loving this to support herself. She thinks she is showing up to a kids birthday party when she actually shows up to a bachelor party. This is where she first meets Cameron. He acts like he is disgusted with her, but in actuality he is very intrigued by her and her willingness to not give up. When Harper quits her job she is at a los until she applies for the nanny position only thing she didn't realize it was for Cameron. He hires her on the spot and has her move in. Harper is what Cameron and his daughter Bella need. She brings the family back together and eve tough t her family and friends she is known as quitting everything this is one thing she just cannot give up even if she gets hurt in the end. Her and Cameron start flirting and even though he has a girlfriend from hell He cannot stop thinking of Harper. And yes he knows that she is the se girl from the bachelor party. Their harts start getting closer , but neither tells each other because they fear the rejection. Harper falls so in love with Bella that she is determined to help her out. This is what keeps Harper there even after her feelings for Cameron become too unbearable. Barbara Lahr brings out emotions from you while reading that its hard t describe. You don't cry, but you feel as if you are Harper living this life. This is also not just a love story, but about little girl that will not eat and trying to get her to eat is challenge enough. This story was beautifully written and I would suggest this book to anybody who asked me. ************Nicole's Review********** I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Needing the money from this job, she tries her hardest but yeah it doesn’t go so well. Cameron has a daughter that is his entire world. Bella is struggling with issues so very deep that, as a mom myself, made me tear up. She is weak and Cameron is so very scared for his little girl. This is where Cameron and Harper’s path cross again. He is searching for a nanny for Bella, Harper needs a job to keep the roof over her head. But will he remember her from when she tried to act as a stripper in his home? He knows exactly who she is and hires her. In this book not only do you watch two people fall in love you see the struggle they go thru to help Bella. This book has a lot of emotions in it. Not only does Harper bring life back to little Bella but also to Cameron. I really enjoyed reading this little gem of a book. I give this book 5 stars and would recommend it to all my reading friends. I received an arc copy for a fair and honest review

    3.5 bumped to 4. This was a cute, quick, and often hilarious read. The beginning of the book sucks you in with Harper's situation and what she stepped into unknowingly. Later, she returns to the scene of the "crime" hoping no one will remember her. Too much to hope for? Probably. Bella is definitely the star of the show. You can't help but fall for how Cameron tries to help his daughter. He's a single dad who needs a whole lotta help! Harper is someone who has always fumbled from one thing to th 3.5 bumped to 4.

    I enjoyed this book. This book was very well written and performed. I was given an audio code but purchased the ebook on my own so I could move between the two.

    Harper, Cameron & baby Bella What a team. Harper starts out as the Nanny. The story deserve more stars but was short on much needed depth. At about the 85% point I was thinking it was only worthy of 3 stars, but I really loved the redeeming efforts made for both attempting to get Bella to eat and for Cameron to involve Harper with his business. Both aspects of the story could have been further developed for a more satisfying read. There seemed to be a rush to get to thE HEA and final bedroom scen Harper, Cameron & baby Bella What a team.

    This was my first time reading author, Barbara Lohr, and I must say that she's definitely being added to my "Authors I Must Read" list!!! I enjoyed meeting the characters of Finding Southern Comfort, and being a Georgia Girl myself, I enjoyed reading about Savannah and could picture the homes, the people, and hear the Southern accents. Love, Love, Love this book and as soon as I was finished with this one, I had to go and download the rest of the series! Definitely worth your time if you like sw This was my first time reading author, Barbara Lohr, and I must say that she's definitely being added to my "Authors I Must Read" list!!!

    Finding Southern Comfort (Windy City Romance #.5) - PG13/R Violence: none Language: <45, including deity Sex: Yes. There's the trope of sex in a dream (ugh!) and PU-LEESE, no tightness in jeans for arousal! Descriptive kissing. I should have known, but I haven't read a book by this author before. There is sex at the very end when I'm totally invested in the H and h's relationship. It is described with euphemisms, which is harder to skip through and still follow the story.

    I have not read any of the other books in the series. Finding Southern Comfort is a perfect story of how life puts mountains in our lives that we think we can't overcome. Fear of falling in love after a broken heart is one of those mountains. Fear of disappointing ourselves, our family, etc. all fall into that category of mountains. As I wanted this story to move at a quicker pace, I find myself wishing there was more to the story. I know there is, but it's backstory.

    I really loved the storyline between Harper and Bella. I thought it was written well and done with great sensitivity - particularly towards Bella's eating issues. I also really enjoyed the build up between Cameron and Harper. But this book lost it for me when Cameron and Harper first got together at the work site. I just didn't buy it. By that point I well and truly should have, but I just couldn't. It was from that point on that the book started to not hit the highs it did for me.

    Finding Southern Comfort Great story ,could not put the book down. Read it in one sitting .The story of a little girl so list and forgotten by a father who was too busy to spend much time with her. A nanny who fell in love and decided the little girl needed someone on her side to help her overcome all her fears and learn yo eat and be like all her friends in her kindergarten class. A great arc and one I was very happy to read and review at this time. Norma Zgorrill

    I really enjoyed this book. A wealthy, hunky widower, a sad and troubled four year old, and a down to earth young woman trying to find her way. The characters are flawed and well developed. I wanted Harper's job. I wanted her life. This book is a slow burn and I enjoyed the time the author took for these two to find their way to each other. I really enjoyed this book.

    This book started out funny and ended sweet. The characters are relatable and real. It deals with real life problems. I love Savannah, so I really liked the descriptive writing style of Lohr and the descriptions of the town. Read the book in one day, because I couldn't put it down. Look forward to reading more books by the author. I voluntarily reviewed a copy I cried from the author. This book started out funny and ended sweet. The characters are relatable and real.

    I loved this family! Cameron is such an amazing man, but I can’t believe he stayed with Kimmy so long! And I loved little Bella! And Harper was such a uniquely colorful person, outwardly confident, yet as unsure of herself as many people are. From Cat Woman to nanny to HEA, this was a great book!

    Stole My Heart I loved this story from start to finish, it was a joy to keep turning the pages. I fell in love with characters and their story. This is a first read of a Barbara Lohr story for me and I look forward to reading more as I doubt any of them will disappoint me. A very talented story teller.

    Such a Sweet Romance I really enjoyed the read. The characters were great and believable. The romance was cute though the kissing scenes lacked detail to put butterflies in my stomach. I didn’t give it 5 stars because the ending seemed rushed and lacked the sweetness of the rest of the novel.
