About the Book
In the space of a minute, Nick Brennan learns he has a nine-year-old daughter—and that she desperately needs his help. All this time, his high school sweetheart, single mother Josie Peretti, thought he knew about their child. And that he just didn't care. About the ill little girl—or Josie, the woman he's never forgotten. But Nick made a long-ago promise never to forsake his family the way his father did. A promise he vows to make good on now…if only Josie will bless him with a second chance.

My Thoughts
Lakeside Family by Lisa Jordan was a thoroughly enjoyable story. There's something about a couple who has been torn apart and find their way back to each other that just calls to me. :) Josie Peretti's fierce independence was easy to identify with. I appreciated the lesson about trusting God and allowing others to help that Jordan wove throughout the book. It wasn't overly preachy but the message came through loud and clear. Some of the characters were apparently carry-overs from a previous book, but this book stands on its own quite well. This was a great first read (for me) from Lisa Jordan. [4 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Love Inspired via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
