Lisa Childs writes terrific lawmen characters! In "Single Dad Sheriff" she offers divorce and child rearing issues from the view of Chance Drayton, a single father struggling to regain order in his personal life. He enjoys his duties as the Sheriff of Forest Glen, a small town with some very interesting residents, a few of whom are more than willing to play match-maker. Chance's ex-wife is making the custody battle extremely difficult, and in order to spend time with his son, Chance may be forced to move to Chicago where his former wife works. When eight year old Tommy Phillips walks into Chance's office and asks for help in finding his own father, Chance is immediately drawn into the boy's situation. Tommy's mother, Jessie, has raised him on her own due to troubled relationships with her family and also with Tommy's father. After her initial resentment of Chance's interference in her personal life, she realizes that Chance is good for Tommy, and the three of them become friends. Chance realizes his attraction to Jessie is reciprocated, but he tries to keep somewhat of a distance due to his custody issues with his ex-wife. Many readers who have gone through the heartache of divorce and child custody matters will empathize with Chance. He's a good guy whose wife had an affair while he was deployed with the Marines, and then she divorced him and moved away with their son. Jessie has a whole different set of personal problems, but she is a great mom who loves her son and puts his welfare above her own. Two characters dealing with some tough life issues and hoping to find happiness together with both of their sons as part of their relationship. The supporting players were interesting, and I would like to also read their stories. You'll root for this single dad to win his own HEA. ( )
