Publisher's Summary

Arlington, Connecticut, police detective John Russo is responsible to a fault. When his girlfriend got pregnant, he married her. When she walked out on the marriage, he committed himself to raising their son alone. But when his babysitter has a family emergency and must fly to California, John's carefully rigged existence comes crashing down. He needs help, and fast.
Molly Saunders co-founded the Daddy School to help men become better fathers. She wants to help John, not just by providing a space for his two-year-old son in her preschool but also by teaching him how to deal with his son's demands - and teaching him that despite the occasional brutality of his work, he can still be a loving, vulnerable man.
When it comes to learning the skills he needs to raise his son well, John is an A student. But Molly's lessons in love prove much more challenging.
Can a man who conceals a gun inside his undercover Santa Claus costume actually be the gentle, sensitive man of Molly's dreams?

Daddy School

I liked the story line of this series, but I'm having trouble with the endings of both this one and the previous one.
In both books, it sort of just ends. There are situations that need to be finished. Ex: both John and Molly just rush out of the daycare and no mention of who's going to take care of Michael. Also, in both books they say "I love you" and it ends. It was an emotional let down with none of their issues really settled. I just feel each book needs a little more. Both books #1 and #2 need and epilogue to bring the books to a better emotional least for the reader. I was really into each story and then suddenly felt like I was left hanging.

Love These Books - Recommend As Stand Alone/Series

Would you listen to Father Christmas again? Why?

John is a local police detective and father to two-year-old Michael. After Michael's nanny is called away for a family emergency, John is desperate to find a good caregiver, right now.

Molly is one of the head honchos at the local daycare. She is at the front desk when this tall, overbearing, cold looking man enters your daycare and she glimpses the gun under his jacket. They make arrangements for Michael to answer the day care program immediately. However, she has reservations about this ultra serious man.

Will he be able to let his guard down? Will she be able to make this super responsible, down to earth guy smile just a bit?

My only quibble with this great book is the hyper phobia issue of guns. He is a trained professional whose job requires him to carry a firearm. The freaking out by almost every character was a bit over-the-top.

An excellent installment in the Daddy School series. I wish this series had a different name as Daddy School sounds a bit juvenile and the books are anything but. They are well-written, contemporary romances. Each can be read as alone and are enjoyable as a series.

I really hope that Judith Arnold continues with this series on audio and that Tom Dheere continues to narrate.

Dheere is an excellent performer, versatile and believable. From children two years old on to an elderly aunt and everything in between. His performance as female characters sound like female characters and the children sounds like children without being annoying. Excellent.

Upon reading listening to the first Daddy School book, I was hooked. I was also generously given credit in exchange for my review on all three books. I will continue to seek out the next book in the series and hope it comes soon. I will use one of my credits without thinking twice – they are this good.

Highly recommended
