My Review

“The Single Dad Finds a Wife” by Felicia Mason is the second book in her 'Cedar Springs' series.

There is a series story line that is continued from “The Fireman Finds a Wife” with maybe a few new added twists but I could be wrong and a whole new series story line is coming out. Honestly if one has not yet read “The Fireman Finds a Wife” then no fears for nothing has gotten to the point where a reader can't quickly catch up. There is a character or maybe two who are not what they seem to be I am sure. The first impression of this character or two makes one think one way, and though there is nothing in this story that contradicts that, I have a gut feeling that there is something else going on with this character or two.

Spring is a woman who is determined to help out all those who need help, and suspect that maybe there is a whole lot more to her that we may never see. Spring is a doctor who is helping in all the ways she can from those who can pay to those who can't. She is also a woman who knows when to fight for what she thinks is right and totally stubborn when she thinks she is right. Through it all though, there is something about Spring that touched this reader's heart.

David is a man on a mission, but there is more to this mission than meets the eye for sure. When a wrench is thrown into David's plans, that didn't bother him in the slightest for there were things more important than his plans and he never doubted that. Sure his mission was important but he always had his priorities in order. When he came across something he wanted he tried to reach for it with a great deal of determination, but never with an arrogance some might have. He just went forward with a determination and a prayer.

I completely enjoyed this story, though at times it seemed as if things were not progressing forward but going backwards story-wise, yet I just couldn't seem to skip any pages for fear that I would miss something in the series story-line for every so often there was cut to something that maybe, but might not be important. I say maybe but might not be important is because it was written in such a way that I couldn't be sure if it was something important for the series story-line or maybe it was just something thrown in there to throw people off track.

The characters for the most part are three dimensional and touched this reader's heart at times. Sadly they at the same time seem to lack something for there is real no back story to one and a lacking back story for the other. I like those back stories for they truly help me understand the character and gives them a deeper layer.

I couldn't help but laugh out loud at the end of the book for that was most certainly something I didn't see coming at all.

Over all I completely enjoyed reading this book on a sunny afternoon where I wanted something light but fun to read. This fit the bill perfectly. I hope all who read this book enjoys like I did.
