about the book

Will he pass the daddy test?

With his job in jeopardy, it couldn’t be a worse time for Sheriff Nate Landry’s recent past to come back to haunt him. But it would take an army to stop SWAT team leader Julie Smith. The fellow cop—and sister of his ex-fiancée—wants one thing from the beleaguered lawman: custody of the toddler son that Nate didn’t know he had.

He may not be natural daddy material, but he quickly takes a shine to little Duke. And then there are the feelings Nate’s been hiding for years. Only now Julie’s running for sheriff of Harmony Valley—against him. Time to retreat? Not if he wants a future with the woman he loves.

This is such a delightful book, y’all! I can’t recommend it enough!

Nate and Julie are old friends drawn back together by a little boy named Duke. Who, by the way, is just adorable. The chemistry between Nate and Julie is full of past emotions that give weight to the sparks that fly between them without their consent. And trust me, you will be quickly be swooning over Nate and his easy way of being a small town sheriff and looking out for the people in his care.

Speaking of those people, a quirky cast of characters brings lots of wry humor to the mix and at times had me chuckling out loud. Their personalities all so vivid that I could easily see them brought to life on the screen courtesy of Hallmark. Any of that channel’s execs who read my blog – take note! (Caveat: No studio execs read my blog to my knowledge. lol)

Bottom Line: Sweet, sassy and romantic, Support Your Local Sheriff is definitely going on my faves list for 2017! Colorful characters, a cozy small town setting and an adorable toddler will make you laugh and smile, while Nate and Julie’s story will leave you swooning and maybe even wiping at a few stray tears. Add this book to your TBR, my friends! And now I’m off to track down this author’s back list!

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 5 stars / Delightful in every way!

KissingBook Level: 3 / May forget to breathe on occasion!
