Open Hearts Sometimes love needed a heavenly hand, but Annie O’Keefe was reluctant to believe in romance. She had always been the family caretaker and made sure everyone else’s needs were met first. But when a charming landscaper appeared outside her window, Annie had secret hopes that this handsome stranger might be meant just for her.
