The Deputy's Holiday Family by Mindy Obenhaus ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Lacie Collier is a Denver interior designer, raising her young niece, Kenzie. When Lacie's job lets her go, she decides to go back to her hometown to spend Christmas with her mom. On her way home, she gets pulled over, by Deputy Matt Stephens, who is surprised to see his old friend back in town.

Lacie is helping with the local Christmas Program, but when she has an accident, Matt is asked to take over. Matt goes to Lacie for help with the program, he meets Kenzie and is shocked that she looks just like he did at her age.

As past secrets are revealed will Lacie and Matt be able to give Kenzie the family she's always wanted?

Matt has always had a troubled relationship with his father, he joined the Navy, and then came home taking a job as the deputy. He is  shocked to learn about Kenzie's existence, and he wants to make up for lost time, and be a part of her life. As he and Lacie work together, he starts to have feelings for her, but she's been looking for a job and he doesn't want to get attached if she is leaving. I really admired how he makes the effort to mend things with his father, and be a role model for Kenzie.

Lacie has always like Matt, but he always liked her sister. She is responsible and dedicated to her family, she doesn't want Matt to take Kenzie away from her. She loves her niece and has leaned on her faith to sustain her. Kenzie is so adorable, and I love how Lacie has also discipled her young niece.

Great interaction, I loved the whole Stephen's family and how Matt and his father, Clint, find new understanding. I love how the author blends the faith so integrally into the story, Lacie and Clint live their faith, and it is very important in their life. A great story about faith, family, and starting over, definitely recommend!
