I was not aware that there were Christian based romance novels until I won this book from Goodreads. The title, Daddy Lessons, indicated an entirely different story to me. So, I was surprised to get the book and learn that there is an entire realm of Christian-based romance novels out there. Needless to say, this definitely means that you will not get the hot and heavy amorous scenes that you might in your typical Harlequin Romance. Rather, Daddy Lessons is a sweet G rated Romantic story about t ...more

This story was a good read and would have givin it 3 1/2 stars if I could. It did have a few small places where it dragged a little but didn't stay there and picked back up with the story. Story of forgiveness of yourself, and of the past and learning how God always forgives. How a little girl dealing with her Mamma's death helps two others to face the past and heal from it. A nice reminder of God still being with you even though you feel He's not

This book was interesting for me because even though I had a pretty good idea how it would end, I still really enjoyed reading how Dan and Hailey sorted through their past issues and were able to rekindle their love for each other. I found the romance between them very touching and liked their maturity in working things out together.

I also admired Dan for being so caring to Natasha. I could tell how much she meant to him, and he was a good dad to her. He was a bit gruff at first, but I could un

I give this one a 3.5 star rating.. The story was cute & predictable, but very enjoyable.. It deals with family, love, loss and coping with loss and guilt.

At times i felt like I was missing something, but I think that's because it's part of a series.. I hate that these little romances are like that because you can't always find the books since they are only available to purchase for a short time :(
Jan 22, 2015 Thea rated it it was ok
For me this book dragged on. A lost love and a second chance but they are both to busy trying not to come together. All the while spending ever day together. To me this could have done with about 150 to 200 pages less. To much of there own assumptions and thoughts made this drag out. The child is a lot of the story. She is not what a child would be like with her back story.

This engaging story perfectly captures the feel of small town America and the angst of single fatherhood. A heartwarming, touching read. Delightful.
