This was an awesomely good story about love, commitment, and caring for people. Peter Sheridan had a son, but he didn't know it until two years later. His son was given to Jessica Chandler by her twin Clarissa. Clarissa died in a fire, but she also didn't want to be a mother, so Jessica adopted her child. She was so afraid that Peter would take him away from her, but that was never his intention. Eventually he fell in love with her and had a hard time convincing her that they should get married. ...more
"Instant Daddy" by Carol Voss was a book I had to reread for I just couldn't imagine why my records showed only one star, well I must have somewhere accidentally changed the rating for this wasn't a one star book but a solid four star book.

To suddenly discover you have a child in such a public forum has to be a total shock and boy does it set up a great story. I must admit it plays on nearly every single moms worst nightmare, but love the ending.

I loved the storyline and characters, and I thought "Instant Daddy" was a wonderful Christian romance. Peter and Jessie were amazing characters, among many others. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was an epilogue a little bit in the future, but other than that I loved it and I can't wait to read the next book by Carol Voss!
Was not thought out well in view of an 18 month old and to much family interference I was very disappointed with the advice the grandfather has given to the real father of the child and for the selfishness of the entire book.
I received this book from ACFW to review for the Carol Awards, and I am so glad I did! It was a great read with engaging characters that I rooted for throughout the book and a hero that I fell in love with :)
