Product Description

Following the revelation of her fiancé’s philandering ways, high-powered New York attorney Shannon Turney’s wedding is off. At a time like this, the last thing she can handle is family drama. But when she learns how far her brother’s and sister-in-law’s lives have spiraled out of control, the only thought in her mind is the safety of her young niece and nephew. After Shannon is granted custody, she and the children are eager to run long and far from their problems.

The end of the road is Sugar City, a place as delightful as its name implies. In the tiny town, Shannon gets much more of a change than she bargained for. Welcomed with open arms by the townspeople, including the handsome local veterinarian, Shannon and the children slowly begin to heal. But when their idyllic existence is threatened by the return of the children’s mother, Shannon has no choice but to return to the courtroom she left behind. She has one last legal battle to fight, and the outcome may mean losing everything she loves.

Legally and Lawfully Yours

I enjoyed the plot, but found the actual story line tedious and a bit boring. The character development was too literal and lacking in depth. Great concept, execution left quite a bit to be desired.

Great themes and characters

My favorite thing about this thoughtful book is the theme of family loyalty and devotion. Both Shannon with her traumatic background and Phillip with his idyllic childhood exemplify unconditional love and sacrifice for their family members. I loved their "meet-cute" and the steadily growing friendship and romance. Shannon was an interesting character to read since she is in a state of transition at the beginning of the book, not only in career and location, but emotionally as well. Her self-evaluation throughout the book is open and honest as it shows her growth in connecting to those around her and exercising faith in God.

This book grabbed me from the very first page and I couldn't put it down until I had read every word. SO. SO. SO. GOOD!

I was so impressed that Shannon would leave her luxurious career to find greater happiness in helping raise two small children who really needed her.

She becomes the aunt she wishes she had had when she and her brother had no one else.

Now she is on the run and hiding and trying to find a new home for these children and herself.

Along the way she finds a support team and more family members in Phillip and Marj and others from the town of Sugar City...you will LOVE how that all comes together!

Follow Shannon as she battles to get the kids to safety and keep them there.

So many GREAT SCENES!
Such GREAT WRITING!
Really LOVED this one!

This was a cute romance. It gripped me from the beginning, but as the story progressed I lost interest. The situation worked well, however, I felt like the danger wasn't real enough for me. Granted, I've never been in this type of situation and I image the fear is very real, but I didn't feel it as a reader. The kids were darling, as was the couple. There were spots where I felt like the tension was rising, but for me it fell flat. This is a clean read that I can recommend to just about everyone though. *A review copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

A heartfelt and sweet inspirational story.

Legally and Lawfully Yours was a very sweet, heartfelt story as the main character, Shannon, takes her niece and nephew into her life after their mother shows that she is unable to care for them. There were quite a few roadblocks and struggles for Shannon and these children due to all of their past histories. They all had trust issues and other things to work through. I loved how the other characters, especially Phillip and Marj, enveloped Shannon and the kids into their lives and how Phillip's faith in God strengthened Shannon's faith.

I fell in love with these characters. Shannon with her protective and loving nature towards Neil and Jeanie as she became an adoptive mother to them. Phillip's love for Shannon and the kids and his compassion toward them for their past struggles. Marj's immediate love and bringing so much joy into the children's lives. Other characters who formed a larger family for Shannon and the children and created a home and loving community for them.

The story was engaging. The romance moved quickly at first and then slowed down quite a bit until the end. For the most part things went smoothly with a few more intense moments here and there. I would have liked to have delved a little deeper into the story and the characters' experiences, but it was still a well-told story.

I would recommend Legally Lawfully Yours to those who enjoy Christian romance, the author's other books, or women's fiction. I actually would love to have a sequel to find out what happens to Shannon's brother and the children's father after he's served his time.

This story is written about the horrible truths of kids being taken away from their alcoholic and drug addicted parents; the kids are also either put into foster care, sometimes not any better than the situations with their parents, or allowed into the custody of loving relatives. Anita tells a story of the reality of these situations, as well as brings in a story of romance. I would highly recommend this novel to all readers that enjoy Anita Stansfield’s inspirational writing.
