The Godparent Trap

Hachette Audio. Aug. 2022. 7:12 hrs. ISBN 9781549166204. $25.98. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Colby and Rip unexpectedly become guardians to two adorable children when their best friends die in a car crash. The two couldn’t be more different and really cannot stand each other. Colby works as a globe-trotting food blogger who desperately needs to put down roots, and Rip is an accountant who lives according to rules and expectations. Rip is not at all convinced that free-spirited Colby will take the responsibility of the insta-family seriously. As they work to make a safe haven for the kids, can these two find a way to accept each other? Van Dyken (“Mafia Royals” series) has written a fun opposites-attract novel. Narrators Maria Liatis and Jacob York bring to life the tension and growing attraction between Colby and Rip. They sensitively capture Colby, Rip, and the children’s grief, exploring their feelings with honesty and well-placed humor. This touching book also offers plenty of steamy scenes that will appeal to romance fans.
VERDICT Although the book’s conclusion is somewhat predictable, Van Dyken’s nuanced latest will be a welcome addition to any romance collection.
