This was such a sweet story! Both Joe and Claire came from rocky backgrounds, yet they each ended up with good families to love them. Claire had such a wonderful heart for children and I loved watching her interact with Joe’s daughter, Amelia. Seeing Joe and Amelia bond during this story was especially heartwarming, as well.
The Dad Next Door is a great beginning for this series, filled with family, romance, and the start of new things. It was fun to be introduced to Joe’s family and the small, fictional town of Red Hill Springs, AL. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A Place to Call Home
Lawman Joe Sheehan is desperate to bond with the daughter he’s just discovered he has. But as a virtual stranger to twelve-year-old Amelia, the task seems impossible. Until Claire Conley moves to town. A social worker renovating a mansion into a foster home, Claire is the first person to get through to Amelia. Falling for the single dad was not on Claire’s to-do list. But with Joe and Amelia around, the house finally starts to feel like home. Claire’s ready to fight to convince Joe that together they’ve done more than fix a house…they’ve built a family.
