The Single Dad’s Patchwork Family is a lovely story that shares the emotional and difficult journey that a single parent often goes through. I’d like to share the following excerpt from the story, that, for me, encapsulates the emotions:

‘Mum, did Dad leave because he didn’t like us?...’
‘What? No. No, of course not.’ She wound her arms around his
shoulders. She couldn’t hold the tears back any longer and they

This was my first read by Claire Baxter and I believe not the last one. The book overall was pretty good, although it's not as heart-warming as I would expect from "Harlequin Romance" line. The plot centers around 2 single parents, Chase and Regan, and their fear of relations for quite understandable reasons. My main complaint about this book is the heroine and her constant crying. She just wasn't likable & I never did warm up to her. Other than that, I enjoyed reading it.

Cute, yet annoying at the same time... I really liked the story, but thought the couple was a little on the immature side... Especially given that they were both previously married with children. I enjoyed seeing the 2 families become one.. It was really sweet. :)
So all-in-all it was a cute, light read that gave me some distraction and smiles on a really hot day.
