A Family to Call Ours is a great addition to the Front Porch Promises series. Just like the two prior books in the series, this novel can stand alone for those who have not read the entire series.
I really enjoyed this contemporary Christian tale. Tara and Caleb were very likable. They both carried hurts from the past that made them hesitant to fully trust their hearts. Hailey, Tara’s daughter, was an important part of this book, as well. Her character was very realistic and added to the warm feeling in the novel. A Family to Call Ours highlighted the importance of forgiveness and of letting go of anger. The emotional journeys that both Caleb and Tara took throughout the story were insightful and the romance woven through the pages was sweet.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinons are my own.

When he meets Tara, the new office manager at the family business, he is immediately on guard. A pretty blonde fooled him once before, and he will make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Will Tara’s loving and giving nature soften Caleb’s heart and help him learn to trust and love again?
