Have you ever loved a book so much that you wanted to move to the town & live next door to the characters? That’s Grace Haven! I just loved everything about this book!! **Special Note** The men in all of the Grace Haven books were named in honor of fallen police officers. What an incredible way to honor our most honorable!
Ruth Logan Herne just writes good books! I love her heart, which shines through in her words. This one carried a wonderful message. Only God can turn a heart around that has been hurt through neglect. I loved how the author weaved that message of God's grace, redemption and forgiveness throughout this book. The lessons learned from the secondary characters touched my heart as well. It is going to impact my walk with the Lord. *I received a copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own ..
Ruth Logan Herne created another beautiful story with Their Surprise Daddy. I was enthralled with the story and kept reading till the epilogue. I love all of Herne’s stories surrounded with families, small towns, adventure, trials, faith, love, and God’s amazing message of hope, mercy, grace, second chances and unconditional love. Their Surprise Daddy is realistic with Liliana and Javier, Cruz Maldonado orphaned cousins, who needed someone to care for them after Cruz’s mother health became more complicated. The issue with the children’s immigrant status presented more complications for Cruz. Cruz grew up on a vineyard working hard with his father outside of Grace Haven, while his mother was focused on socializing and building her entertaining business which she loved. Add in Liliana and Javier’s pre-K teacher, Aurora Gallagher, and you have a charming, loving and a fighter for those less fortunate as Cruz soon discovered. The estrangement between Cruz and his mother added to the mix made this a captivating story. Will Cruz be able to find peace and salvage the vineyard and home he was a part of for so many years? Or will he continue with his investment business in New York? There are multiple unexpected events that will cause hurt feelings, misunderstandings and testing of each individual’s faith and love. Their Surprise Daddy can be read as a standalone in the Grace Haven series; however, I would highly recommend reading An Unexpected Groom and Her Unexpected Family with their delightful plots and characters. I always look forward to reading Ruth Logan Herne’s books with a strong message about faith, family and friends. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author and was not required to write a positive review. This review is my honest thoughts about another 5 star book from Herne.
