Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman – Review by Maura Harper

Hoosier DadHoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author and I will look for other stories she has written. I find her style of writing to be easy and enjoyable.

This is a second chance tale that has humor and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It flows well from beginning to end and has a decent balance of emotions and experiences.

Great kids and friends as well as local town people all add color to this story.

I recommend this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hoosier Dad is an awesome contemporary romance by Elizabeth Seckman. Before reading this, I had never read any of this author’s work, but now I will definitely be reading more. I loved it and would definitely recommend it to others, especially if you enjoy a second chance romance.
Approaching her 30th birthday and with yet another disastrous relationship behind her, attorney Sarah Andrews decided to move back home to Dodd. One of the first people she meets is Richland (Rich) Cooper, the man who broke her heart. Ideally, she would like to never see him again but Rich needs a lawyer to help him keep custody of his 2 daughters from his evil ex-wife (who at one point had been Sarah’s friend.
Spending more and more time together, and Sarah falling in love with his 2 daughters, Rich is determined to win Sarah back. I loved the interaction between Rich and Sarah, Sarah trying so hard to resist his charms when deep down she still loves him. Rich’s 2 daughters Stacey and Kari were adorable and added so much to the story. You gotta love a cute kid in a romance story!
Of course the path to true love never runs smooth and there are so many obstacles in their way, mainly Rich’s ex-wife Jess and the local Doc who has his eye set on Sarah for himself.
Well deserving of the 5 star rating!

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman is a contemporary romance book with loveable characters and a great story line to boot.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was really taken with her writing style. She effortlessly draws you in and makes you fall instantly in love with the characters she has created. Sarah and Rich were so clearly made for each other and they were the type of characters that you really get behind.
I loved the story as well. I liked the fact that it was the father fighting for his kids rather than the typical story of the mother doing so. It gave it an edge to the book that you don’t always see. I was also really taken with the cover of this book. Even if I hadn’t decided to read it anyway I think the cover would have made me pause long enough to give it a try.
This is a great book and one that I can highly recommend. I am looking forward to exploring more of Elizabeth Seckman’s work in the future.

This is my first book by this author, I enjoyed every page of it. I was pulled in right from the beginning by the well written characters. They are connectable and made the story feel realistic. Sarah is back home again trying to regroup, when she sees Rich again. She fell for him once before, will she again? When Rich needs her help, he may get more than he realizes. Will he convince her he is just what she needs and take down her defenses? I highly recommend their story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman made me chuckle at the very beginning and managed to continue to do so on and off all the way through, but it also really pulled at my heartstrings.

Rich is a single dad with two daughters with a sizable age difference between the girls, and all I could think about was my daughters and their relationship with their daddy. My husband and girls have a very similar relationship to the relationships Rich has with Kari and Stacey which you don’t see a lot of

When Sarah wasn’t making me laugh she was making me mad. She refused to be an adult about a lot of the matters that came up but I will say she stepped up when she had to which did redeem her in my eyes.

Stacey won my heart so many times and her love for Rover just tipped the scales towards her being my favorite and helped me enjoy the book just a little more.

I have not had the pleasure of reading anything by Ms. Seckman before but I do hope I get the opportunity to read her again in the future.

5 stars

This is on a very short list of books now that I loved the entire thing, but at different points in the book disliked both main characters for one reason or another for making a selfish decision. One usually can do no wrong in my head and this one just threw me for a ride!
I love second chance romance, and this was such a spin on that. It took me a bit to connect to Sarah but as her story unfolded, I got her.
And Rich and his girls, ugh anything sexier than a single dad busting his behind to give them the best?

This is a just read, many things play factors in this story and in the end I just wanted more or even an epilogue!

Hoosier Dad is the first book I have read by Elizabeth Seckman and it hooked me from the very beginning. The title alone had me hooked since I live in Indiana so I had to dive in to see what it was all about.

Sarah and Richland were a joy to read. She is a lawyer who is now back and practicing law in her hometown. Rick works in construction and has 2 daughters that he loves very much. Unfortunately he is now face with a custody battle over them and turns to Sarah to help him out. As the time they spend together fighting custody, Rich falls in love with Sarah and who wouldn’t. She’s smart, independent, and the chemistry between the two jumps off the page at you.

I loved everything about this story. Even the secondary characters were amazing to read. Beautiful story and highly recommended!

Hoosier Dad
By Elizabeth Seckman
Rated 4 stars

This is a good story that drew me in easily from the beginning. It is smart and snappy. While it lost some of that edge as the story moves forward it still kept me interested. This is full of small town gossip and problems. Everyone is whispering and talking about everyone else and there is no business like everyone else’s business. This became a little too much for me as the story rolled along. It wasn’t over the top but just not something I am a fan of.
I did like the Main characters. Rich, the kids and Sarah were fun and added zest to the story. I wish there was more romance instead of the doubt that was always there for the two MC’s. I would have liked the story to touch back on the whole dandelion thing. I thought that was so sweet but it never resurfaced. I highlighted those words because they were so true and a great idea

This is a first time author for me. It was a good story and I read it fairly quickly. My main issue was realism. It was a bit like a soap opera and involved a lot of small town chatter.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have not had the pleasure of reading anything from Elizabeth Seckman until I picked up Hoosier Dad, but I am glad that I have found a new author to love. I really enjoyed this playful and sweet contemporary romance. I easily got wrapped up in the lives of Richland and Sarah, finding myself finishing the book in one swift sitting. Richland seeks out the help of Sarah for her lawyer skills as he is faced with a custody battle for his daughters. These two have the perfect couple banter back and forth and eventually the feelings become too much to hide. How will things workout for Richland? Will he get his fair time with his girls? Will he get the sassy lawyer too? You will have to dive into this book for yourself to find out all the answers but I can promise you this will be a favorite read once you are finished. I look forward to seeing what else is available from Ms. Seckman and whatever will come next!
