About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Single Dad's Holiday Match (Smoky Mountains First Responders) by Tanya Agler

The Single Dad's Holiday MatchABOUT THE BOOK

'Tis the season…For unexpected love!

Officer Jonathan Maxwell is just as devoted to his job as he is to his two young daughters, leaving zero time for a social life. Until he meets Brooke Novak. The newly hired community center director is a single parent, too, and also part of his latest investigation. Jonathan needs Brooke’s help if he's going to close his case by Thanksgiving…but she might be the biggest distraction from keeping his mind on his job.


Going back to Hollydale and the Great Smoky Mountains is always a treat, and this time we get to see Hollydale through the eyes of newcomers Brooke Novak and her teenage son Colin. Brooke's new job brings her into contact with Jonathan Maxwell and his two young daughters, and it would seem that this widow and widower have a great deal in common. They are single parents, raising children alone, and they are both free to explore a relationship. There's just one problem, and it's a big one: they both have trust issues that they can't seem to overcome.

'How could trust sustain a relationship when there was no trust? The one man who had seemed perfect for her was, in fact, not.'

Author Tanya Agler once again demonstrates her talent for writing an engaging story. She's filled her newest book with memorable characters, a light mystery, and many of the fun activities that you would expect to find in a small town during the Autumn days leading up to Christmas. She's also added the three Cs to add to its appeal: conflict, confusion, and chemistry. Is there a new beginning for Brooke and Jonathan, and will it be together, in Hollydale?

The Single Dad's Holiday Match is an enjoyable contemporary romance, and I am giving it 4 stars!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book that I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Tanya Agler fell in love with romance novels when her grandmother brought one home from work. After years of reading happily ever afters, she decided to write a sweet contemporary romance with the support of her wonderful husband, four children, and her lovable Basset Hound. A graduate of the University of Georgia, she loves Cary Grant movies, walking, reading, and all things chocolate.
