An instant family…
Is life-changing!

Pregnant construction supervisor Jo Bertoletti doesn’t need anyone’s help…or another heartbreak. So she’s putting handsome, kindhearted firefighter Ozzy Lakeman firmly into the friend zone. After all, she’s just passing through Butterfly Harbor, and her life is too complicated for a summer romance. But Ozzy feels an immediate connection. Can he convince the woman of his dreams to take a chance on building a forever family with him?


A return visit to Butterfly Harbor is like going home! Anna J. Stewart has done a phenomenal job of wrapping a small town around her readers’ hearts and giving us story after story filled with a strong supporting cast of friends and family in this small coastal town that manages to house so much love. With an amazing tenth book in her Butterfly Harbor Stories series Stewart brings us one of her sweetest heroes ever when Ozzy finally meets the love of his life in BUILDING A SURPRISE FAMILY. Great characters, strong back stories and a sweet happily ever after that will make you melt!

Ozzy has been a character that I’ve felt a connection with from the very beginning of the series and seeing him work so hard to realize some dreams has been so rewarding. I loved him in this book and seeing him happy is the best.

Jo is strong willed and self-sufficient, but seeing her let her guard down and let Ozzy bring a softness to her life is really inspiring.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a small town romance filled with easily relatable characters and a friendly cast of extras in every story that make the town fulfilling.
