Nicky Hobbs loves teaching at the local primary school. She's idolized by her class - in particular ten-year-old Oscar Samuels - but she's starting to find she'd quite like some adult adoration for a change...Mark Samuels is a frazzled single father working all the hours God has given him to provide for his beloved son, Oscar. But he's unable to see that Oscar would prefer his presence to his presents once in a while...Ms Hobbs knows Mr Samuels is a heartless workaholic. Mr Samuels is certain Ms Hobbs is an interfering busybody. But when they finally meet they start to discover that first impressions can be deceptive. And perhaps they've both got a bit of learning to do ...Praise for Melissa Nathan:'One to gobble up in a single sitting' - Company'Hugely enjoyable' - heat'Tremendous fun' - Jilly Cooper
