"Daddy Next Door" by Carol Voss is a truly remarkable story that I got so lost in with its realistic trials and tribulations of two single parents with a romance blooming.

Alyssa Douglas is a woman who recognizes her own weaknesses and wants to strengthen them for herself and her boys. It is that strength and her determination to learn that makes her an incredibly strong heroin in my opinion.

Ben Cooper is a man who is comfortable in his own skin, while helping those around him as well as encoura

"Daddy Next Door" was phenomenal and one of the best Christian romance novels I have read in awhile. The storyline and characters were absolutely superb. I completely fell in love with Alyssa, Ben, Joey, Robbie, and Hope. They made a lovely family, and I was thankful to have been able to read their story and go on this journey with them. I also loved the author's style of writing: it was easy to follow and relate to, and it flowed really well. Carol Voss is an extremely talented author and I hav ...more

A really nice read by Carol Voss. Uplifting and sweet.
The protagonist probably had the best baby in the world. But hey, it is a story and if one could choose, a baby who rarely cried and always slept at the right time is one most would choose to have.
My heart went out to the heroine; to have lost her husband, have a baby and move all in the same year is a lot for any woman to handle. But, with the help of her great next door neighbor, and her faith in God, she did it.
Good character developmen

Nice little story. Heroine is a widow trying to stand on her own feet. She has 2 boys, one an infant. The hero lives next door and is a rescuer, including the 12-year-old daughter he adopted. So when the heroine's house catches fire in a blizzard the day she tries to move in... This is a sweet story with a reasonable amount of angst. All the conflict seems to be wrapped up in a bit of a rush, but it's an enjoyable read. I liked it.

I am a sucker for a great father story! Benn (or Coop, whichever name you perfer) was a GREAT dad! He took a baby, not his own, and raised her as his own. Now at the age of 12, Hope feels she's going to lose her father to someone else.

Alyssia is a sweet single mother who just wants to take care of herself and her two young sons with nobody's help. She struggles with this. Her four year old, Joey, worries about losing those he loves since his dad was killed in an accident after
