I loved this book! It starts out with little 5 year old Spike walking into a doctor's office saying his tonsils fell out. Yes, fell out. He knew he could get ice cream if he lost his tonsils so having then fall out seemed like a good idea to him. The doctor was Pediatrician Chad Markham who didn't fall for the boy's plan and took him home. There he met the boy's Aunt Jill who was in the process of adopting Spike. Sparks flew between this pair but not good sparks at first.
This is a well written fun story with some sad parts in it too. It was sad that Spike lost his parents but there were so many funny parts that made it easy to enjoy. Like the Mall Santas, fun animal scenes and Spike himself was so funny and cute as most 5 year olds are.
I was so glad I won this book in a Harlequin Junkie giveaway because I've always loved Jacqueline Diamond's books.
