When his ex-wife goes away for the holidays, Hartford police detective Nick Gray is left with infant daughter Mandy for three weeks. Floundering on his own, he has the good sense to hire neighbor Bridget Humphrey, a pet sitter and astrologist, to help him out. Spending time with Bridget allows Nick to see that the neighbor he thought wasn't his type is really perfect for him. C.J. Carmichael's Christmas With Daddy (4) is a terrific tale about finding love where and when you least expect it. Bridget's occupation(s) are unusual, and Nick's search for a missing teen adds depth.
