A Family to Call Her Own

After becoming a foster parent to a young boy, equine therapist Jordan Conley’s life gets turned upside down. Little Levi is in need of an exceptional pediatrician, which means seeking help from Dr. Ash Sheehan—a man that, despite her heart-pounding crush, isn’t her type. Her life is horses and hay, and she can’t imagine the suit-clad doctor in a pair of cowboy boots. As a confirmed bachelor, Ash has never been nervous around women, but there’s something about Jordan that flusters him, and working closely together doesn’t help. The last thing he’s looking for is long-term romance. But the more involved he gets, the more he wishes they could stay together…always.

The Family Blessings books from Stephanie Dees contain stories of unconventional families and sweet, sweet romance. I had a lot of fun getting to know these lovable characters, their fears and dreams, their quirks and strengths, all in a small-town setting. Each one has challenges to overcome, but they never have to do so alone.

In The Dad Next Door, Joe Sheehan unexpectedly learns he’s the father to a twelve-year-old girl, while Claire Conley renovates an inherited mansion to host foster children. Together, they explore ideas of home, belonging, and finding healing for the hurts of the past.

In A Baby for the Doctor, Jordan Conley becomes a foster mother for an adorable but hurt little boy, while Ash Sheehan uses his doctoring skills to help her out. Their story helps them to learn to trust, love, and take a risk or two.

In Their Secret Baby Bond, Wynn Sheehan and Latham Grant reunite when she returns to Red Hill Springs pregnant and ashamed. He needs help with his grandfather, and she needs help renovating a cottage. The more time they spend together, the more they begin to see how dreams can change for the better.

In The Marriage Bargain, Jules Sheehan is willing to do anything for two sweet girls in her careincluding proposing a marriage of convenience to their uncle, Cameron Quinn. For the plan to be a success, the pair must set aside their ideas of perfection and let go of the past.

All in all, the Family Blessings series is a highly enjoyable set of books to read. With family, romance, and a lot of fun, they’re easy to recommend.
