    This is my first Sherryl Woods book When Daisy Spencer catches 10 year old Tommy Flanagan trying to hotwire her car she instantly falls in love with him Daisy sees this as a cry for love and attention and decides to take him into her home, much to the outrage of everyone in the town of Trinity Harbor.Walker Ames is an overworked, burned out D.C cop, he is stunned when the news of a nephew he never knew he had is delivered to him in the form of a phone call from social worker Frances Jackson This is my first Sherryl Woods book When Daisy Spencer catches 10 year old Tommy Flanagan trying to hotwire her car she instantly falls in love with him Daisy sees this as a cry for love and attention and decides to take him into her home, much to the outrage of everyone in the town of Trinity Harbor.Walker Ames is an overworked, burned out D.C cop, he is stunned when the news of a nephew he never knew he had is delivered to him in the form of a phone call from social worker Frances Jackson In order to get to know his long lost nephew, Walker agrees to a weekend visit to Trinity Harbor The two have fun with an old scrappy boat that Tommy has found and is trying to fix up Gives them some bonding time, and Daisy and Walker kind of hit it off too It s a pleasant plot and enjoyable to read.This is my first read by Sherryl Woods and I can honestly say she has made me a fan, I enjoy my romances light and sweet and this had elements of both

    This book was pretty great The emotions ran high and the suspense was high as well You never knew what was going to happen during many different scenes in the book It wasn t a tell tale romance book and that is what I loved most about it I ve moved onto book 2 of this 3 book series I hope it gets even better.

    I loved this book Loved the characters well, most of them , the story and the way certain sensitive issues are dealt with There is a lot happening in this book, but the author manages to make it all fit in a convincing way Still, I had a few issues, which are the main reason I m rating About That Man with four stars instead of five.I have to admit I was a bit troubled by the way King Spencer Daisy s father tries to control the lives and decisions of everyone around him Not coming from a I loved this book Loved the characters well, most of them , the story and the way certain sensitive issues are dealt with There is a lot happening in this book, but the author manages to make it all fit in a convincing way Still, I had a few issues, which are the main reason I m rating About That Man with four stars instead of five.I have to admit I was a bit troubled by the way King Spencer Daisy s father tries to control the lives and decisions of everyone around him Not coming from a small town myself, maybe I just can t grasp the situation correctly, but the whole thing strikes me as unrealistic Bottom line, King Spencer comes across as a bully and just don t like bullies.Also, everyone s concern with the yankees is a bit odd Again, maybe it s my European mentality, but that war was fought over 150 years ago, isn t it time to let it go How can anyone say that Walker isn t good enough for Daisy because he s a yankee And then they discover he was born in Richmond and suddenly he s totally Ok Really Do people still live by those rules And finally, it also seemed strange that at this day and age a woman would get in trouble at work because she s living under the same roof with a man out of wedlock Granted, she s a highschool teacher, but if there are drug issues at school shouldn t the principal beconcerned about those instead of meddling in private aspects of her life Nevertheless, and personal rants aside, these are details that should not detract from the fact that About That Man is still a wonderful romance novel, and I recommend it This was the first book I read by Sherryl Woods and I will certainly go back for

    I enjoyed this The characters were pretty vivid and likeable, and the situation was compelling I particularly liked the hero and heroine, and I related to both of them well The kid was okay, if a bit surly The writing was fine, and the dialogue was realistic and occasionally quite charming It held my attention, and made me glad to read it.However, I can honestly say I hated, hated, hated this frigging town This book could not have a full HEA, in my opinion, unless it ended with them drivin I enjoyed this The characters were pretty vivid and likeable, and the situation was compelling I particularly liked the hero and heroine, and I related to both of them well The kid was okay, if a bit surly The writing was fine, and the dialogue was realistic and occasionally quite charming It held my attention, and made me glad to read it.However, I can honestly say I hated, hated, hated this frigging town This book could not have a full HEA, in my opinion, unless it ended with them driving off, and possibly tossing a match behind them Why we re supposed to see this place as idyllic is beyond me Perhaps if you thought old Bomont in Footloose was an ideal place to settle down, you might dig this place As for me, that s a big no.One caveat for possible readers This book was rather churchy it didn t put me off too badly, as the spirituality is fairly liberal and personal, but it did surprise me, seeing as how this is not an inspirational romance, nor does the cover back copy really give you much indication it s a Christian novel, aside from a slight mention of the heroine teaching Sunday School Still, this is balanced quite nicely with an honest, non preachy romance, and even a good element of heat, so I was able to roll with it Your experience may vary, of course, but I still liked it a good deal, and found this to be a pretty realistic portrayal of love alongside religious views It was actually kind of nice to see spiritual, yet not saintly, people.One criticism I can give is that the minor crime story feels very tacked on, and inconsequential a dope panic gripping Mayberry, and not a major part of the story This didn t bother me too much, though, since I was only focusing on the romance, and didn t really notice the brief mentions of the crime B plot.Further, there was some mild, typical anti women stuff, largely regarding the common romance novel upset over the potential sissification of boys that characters often express about women playing too large a role in the raising of male children It s irksome here, but not constant, and not too over the top It s mostly confined to pretty conventional I don t understand women and women are silly panicky emotional idiots stuff, which is pretty hard to avoid when reading in this genre Still the hero tends to come out looking fairly rational about gender, and often took an admirable stance against the heroine s antique father.Overall, a nice read

    It had the potential of a pretty good storyline, after all, the description lent me to believe it was a deeper story than it turned out to be But, after I got to chapter 11, I had enough Maybe its just because its not my type of book I like books about life and overcoming, and don t mind the occasional romance, but the story seems to take a backseat to the ridiculous romance Daisy is a single woman in a small town who will never have children of her own Jilted because of this revelation, sh It had the potential of a pretty good storyline, after all, the description lent me to believe it was a deeper story than it turned out to be But, after I got to chapter 11, I had enough Maybe its just because its not my type of book I like books about life and overcoming, and don t mind the occasional romance, but the story seems to take a backseat to the ridiculous romance Daisy is a single woman in a small town who will never have children of her own Jilted because of this revelation, she continues her daily life surrounding herself with children as a schoolteacher, Sunday School teacher, etc Until one day she finds an orphaned boy in her garage and decides to take him in That is until the local social worked finds family a DC cop Meanwhile her proud, bullheaded father isconcerned about reputation than people s lives tries to meddle and get the kid away from Daisy.From the first page I thought I would like the story In fact, I probably would have, except for the juvenile harlequin esque immediate introduction of a lusty romance Its one thing to build up a storyline and see a romance develop Its quite another to see upon the first introduction they would share an unexpected kiss while they searched for the missing kid HUH And of course like a bad soap opera, every time they are in the same room, there isdescription than reality allows about their lustful tension and attraction You can hear the soap opera music building up when the man comes back to spend a get to know my nephew weekend at the house and they end up in a make out session when she shows him to his room And of course this is while the dramatic music plays noting the arrogant patriarch is in the kitchen wondering what is taking so long.That s where I stopped Normally I try to plow through a book, but this is silliness to me The obsession is a bit too sudden and completely unrealistic to me It doesn t help that the key players of course are gorgeous like reality would allow that So, I m finished with the book and will assume it all works out in the end as these cheesy romance things usually do

    This book was ok It was a little hard to get into and some of the characters were a little over written, i.e the interfering father was a little too interfering, etc It wasinteresting by the end Her newer books are much better.
