Hoosier Dad By Elizabeth Seckman. This was my first book by this author but I’ll definitely be back for more. I’m a sucker for a coming back home second chance book, and this one definitely didn’t disappoint me. It’s a fun read and I absolutely loved the characters. The author does a a great job of drawing readers into the world of Sarah and Rich. I love everything about this book and can relate to it on a few levels. From page one I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. The characters are complex and relatable, and their story jumps off the pages and comes alive. I can’t wait to read more from this author. Five stars all the way! And highly recommend it!

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman is a well written contemporary romance that I found a delight in reading. Rich and Sarah broke each other’s hearts when they were young, and when they meet again, no matter how much they try not to like each other, it just doesn’t happen. Rich is now a single dad who is raising his two daughters after his ex-split. Now she is back and is saying she is going to take her kids. Sarah is a lawyer, and determined to whatever it takes so he doesn’t lose his girls.
This was a good read and the first for me by this author and I was not disappointed. She has well developed characters and a strong story line. I love this read and highly recommend this four star read!
Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman
I was pleasantly surprised by this story, I’ll be honest I was afraid it would be a predictable type of storyline but it was in no way at all predictable.
I really appreciated that it wasn’t a normal second chance romance where they meet again and all is well. There was so much going on in this book and it was impossible to put down once I got settled in. I loved Sarah in every way, she was a tough take no prisoners attorney and literally did what she had to do in this story while going up against an evil ex and falling in love with the two girls who were the reason for the custody battle.
This is my first time reading anything by this author and I can promise it will not be the last, I loved her style and the flow of this story, you never really knew what was going to happen until it happened. That’s my favorite type of book!
Definitely looking forward to more from this author and I highly recommend this book.

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman is a second chance romance that is fun and light hearted story that was also witty and charming. I enjoy Elizabeth’s writing style and read the book in one sitting. I also found it to be a refreshing and clever read. The story flowed well and the journey the characters took was full of emotions and heat, heart and soul, passion and drama and they were palpable and very vivid. This is my first read by Elizabeth and I really enjoyed it. It has all the ingredients that makes it a feel good read that has you laughing out loud at times. Elizabeth has a way with words that make it not only fun but it is also witty and interesting, mysterious at times and oh so steamy.The story is told in dual POV’s which I love love love and we get to see where each character comes from and it gives so much more depth to the story. Lets just say that with differing POV’s it definitely made the story more enjoyable and at times completely outrageous.
Sarah has come back to town and comes face to face with the man who didn’t just break her heart he stomped on it but when he is in need of help she offers straight away and what she finds is nothing like what she left behind.
Rich is on the lookout for a wife. His expectations are outrageous and made me laugh so hard. When his ex causes trouble he turns to the one person who doesn’t like him but what he finds is something he never thought would happen.
A great read and one to add to your TBR list.

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman was a fun, light hearted, witty read that had me hooked from that first opening sentence.
My first read by this author I didn’t know what I was getting into, and lets just say, I liked it, I liked it a lot. This book was, as I said, super fun, witty, interesting, mysterious, steamy, weirdly outrageous, and just, full of though good feels that have you going, why isn’t this a movie?!. I have such a fun time with both MC’s, told in dual POV we get both of their sides of the story, and I loved how both were on completely different pages. It made room for growth, second chances, and change. Also made for some pretty fun lol moments.
I have to say, I wasn’t expecting to like this book as much as I did, as the synopsis had me thinking it would be pretty mediocre. But this author proved me wrong and truly delivered a wonderful, smart, fresh read that not only flowed, it had heart, passion and you could feel the emotions oozing off the pages. It was like I was watching a real life drama unfold, and it was glorious.
So to end on that high note, I’m going to leave you with my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Hoosier Dad was a really enjoyable read. It is one of those stories that is just really easy to read and I found myself easily dragged into what I was reading and the story of Sarah and Rich. There was a good level of drama running throughout the story which I think was fuelled by the small town gossiping and a couple of secondary characters! The main characters were really likeable and they certainly had a good amount of chemistry, I think I anticipated a little more romance however I think how they interacted with each other did fit in with their past relationship.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I don’t think it will be the last. I liked the simplicity of the story it was nice to read a storyline that wasn’t overly complex. It was a great contemporary romance that I would definitely recommend!
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.

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!
