Beau’s boring existence needs a change… sure. But having a three-year-old niece dropped on his doorstep with no notice seems a bit extreme. Struggling with the little girl’s problems makes life extremely challenging. Especially when faced with the snarky beauty at Child Services he must impress so he can keep little Caro with him.

The final insult comes in the form of a man who seems unworried when his small charge lays on the floor like a pet dog by his feet, sucks her thumb and refuses to speak. How can she not get involved when Caro’s beautiful green eyes beg her for help? Or… is the child is only trying to help her?
