My review:The Deputy's New Family by Jenna Mindel
This is the first book I have read of Jenna's but won't be the last. I have already added a couple to my wish to read pile. I really like the characters even peanut.
Beth had some real fears she had to overcome. Beth is a second grade teacher. Her father was a cop who died in the line of duty. There is no way Beth will date a cop. She has moved back to live with her mom.
Nicholas Grey is now a single father. He is a cop. He does not plan to get serious with anyone soon. He needs to build more close relationship with his son. That's why he took the job in smaller town.
Corey is close to failing second grade. They moved with only two months left in the year. He hates to read. He has been bounced around after his mom died because of his father's work. He is a cute. Death of a parent is hard on children, and for awhile he even lost his father. Mine did not want to be left for years.
Mary is Beth's mom. She has agreed to watch Corey after school. She keeps feeding Corey and Nicholas. Corey fits in with Beth and Mary so fast and easy. She also lives right across the street from the school.
The setting of the book is Lellaro, Michigan. A small town right close to two great lakes.
The book does talk about faith, prayer and leave the rest in God's hands. Not in a overbearing way but a natural part of the story. I thought it was done in a good positive way.
This is a good clean read.
I was given this ebook from Net Galley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give honest review of it.
