The Doctor's Family Reunion



His Instant Family 
Family means everything to Dr. Trent Lockridge. Growing up without a father, he always yearned for a family of his own. One long-ago  summer in Ouray, Colorado, he thought  he might build a future with beautiful  Blakely Daniels. But when he abruptly fled town, he broke her heart and left behind more than memories. Years later, Trent is shocked—and overjoyed—to learn he's a father. He'd like to earn back Blakely's love and trust— but it won't be easy. And the clock is ticking. He's got only a few weeks to prove that, this time, he's here to stay…forever.

My Review:

Stunning debut novel that is well-paced and chalk full of emotion and romance. I absolutely LOVED the 'first meet' scene. It packed a wallop and discombobulated me as much as it did poor Blakely. The author's expertly developed plot kept me riveted. Snappy dialogue, angsty musings, the crackle of attraction, an endearing boy and a couple of cute dogs -- what more can an avid reader ask for? How about an edge-of-your-seat resolution that left my heart thrumming! Can't wait to read more from this author!

  12. Thanks Kav for having this contest. Please put my name in. Sounds interesting to me. Would be hard to trust someone when they just walk out of your life with no explanation. Besides a baby, too. I would sure be interested to read it tho.
    Mindy is new to me, but I love that cover picture. A small old town with beautiful mountains in the background. How peaceful it looks.

    1. Maxie, the author did a really good with that part of the story. Of course Blakely had trust issues right from the start, and frankly so did I but Mindy penned a very sympathetic hero in Trent -- especially since he exemplifies the power of redemption. I think you'll be pleased with the outcome. Good luck!

  13. Book sounds fantastic! Looking forward to reading this book! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the giveaway. Please enter my name in the giveaway. Thank you!!
