Review: A Sheriff's Star by Makenna Lee (Blog Tour)

About The Book

Book Description:

It was only supposed to be a temporary home… He interrupts her plans… 

When police chief Anson Curry returns a lost little girl to her frantic mother, his only goal is to ease the single mom’s anxiety. But it doesn’t take long for Tess Harper’s amazing child to have Anson wrapped around her little finger—and for Tess to have him thinking about a possible relationship. As for Tess, she’s tempted—even though she had planned to be in Oak Hollow, Texas, only temporarily. But after losing her father and brother in the line of duty, Tess thinks Anson’s job poses too much of a risk to her heart. And Anson has no plans to get involved with someone who’s planning on leaving.

My Review 

Single mother, Tess Harper, has her hands full with her special needs four year old daughter, Hannah. After a painful divorce, she moves to Oak Hollow, Texas but it’s only temporary. Eventually, she and Hannah will be moving to Houston permanently. 

When they meet police chief Anson Curry, Tess and Hannah grow close to him. Tess isn’t sure how they will be able to leave him, but she has no intention of making Oak Hollow her permanent residence.  She definitely isn't looking for a relationship with Anson. After losing her father and brother in the line of duty, there’s no way she can get involved with a police officer. She just can’t risk it.  

This is a poignant story with a little girl that will melt your heart. It’s a sweet, heartwarming story. It’s a fast read that had me in tears, as well as smiling, throughout the book. This is the first book in a series and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. 

Makenna Lee is a “new-to-me” author and I was very impressed. She handles situations quite realistically. Tess and Anson are characters readers can care about and cheer for. 

This is a feel good book that is perfect for the holiday season.

  1. I am glad you have such great books as comfort Yvonne. This one does sound sweet with some substance.

    I work with kids with special needs, so these type of stories are always close to my heart.

    Be kind to yourself. You've been on my mind.
