Hunky police officer Nathan Baxter has sworn to protect and serve others, but with all of his training he was unable to save his wifeís life. Now the widower has his hands full raising his five-year-old daughter, Phoebe, and keeping his yoga class taking, matchmaking mother from finding the next Mrs. Nathan Baxter. The last thing Nathan wants is more heartache for himself and sweet little Phoebe.

There is something about Phoebe`s new kindergarten teacher Miss Starr that is very unsettling, could it be the fact that she sometimes seems naive and astonished about the simple things in life? Or is it all the questions she ask Phoebe about her life and Nathan himself? Nathan has to admit that Miss Starr is unlike any woman he has ever meet before.

How does Ms. McCoy do it? How does she bring humor, delightful characters, and tender love scenes all in one book? Nathan, who doesnít want to be hurt again by any woman, his mother Rita Mae who is always dressed to the nines even when she goes out to yoga class. Phoebe his five-year-old daughter who wants a new mother and thinks Ms. Starr is absolutely perfect and last but not least Ms. Starr who was truly Heaven Sent for Nathan and his family. The only thing I thought this was missing from this story was Tom and Annie from the previous book. I would have loved a follow-up with them, but donít let that stop from reading Heaven Sent. Run don't walk to the nearest bookstore.
