About That Man is a pretty standard trope-filled romance novel. Sherryl Woods definitely knows how to tell a story, although I wish she'd managed it without infantilizing a grown ass woman quite as much as she did to Daisy. Also, the only reason I'm overlooking the whole "marijuana is a gateway drug" thing is because this book was written in the early 2000's.

Daisy Spencer's name is on everybody's lips...

How could the sensible daughter of Trinity Harbor's self-proclaimed patriarch have taken in the boy caught hot-wiring her car? Whether the boy is a modern-day Huck Finn or not, Trinity Harbor is in an uproar. But for Daisy, guiding the orphaned ten-year-old is easy, an escape from her own tragic past. She can ignore the town's nay-saying. The only real obstacle is...that man.

That man is the boy's uncle, Walker Ames, a tough D.C. cop who sees his unexpected nephew as his last chance at redemption. Soon he's commuting to the charming fishbowl of a town, where everyone assumes he's seduced Daisy--their best Sunday-school teacher! But to Walker, Daisy is a disconcerting mix of charming innocence and smart-mouthed excitement in a town that's not as sleepy as it looks.

Comments to eBook About That Man (A Trinity Harbor Novel)
Not about the book itself. This review is because this is ANOTHER republished book reintroduced as new! I already had this book. Am I going to have to go through all my kindle books by this author before buying?
Unfortunately, this book was not very good. This author seems to have 2 things in almost every novel she writes - an over-controlling, sexist father figure and a romantic hero completely lacking in character. Daisy was a decent heroine, mostly, but she comes off as spoiled and bossy too much. The story basically follows Daisy Spencer, a woman whose fiance broke up with her because she can't have children, so when a young orphaned boy comes into her life, she jumps at the chance to be his mother. Then Tommy's uncle, Walker, shows up and Daisy decides she's attracted to him. The story follows their rather awkward romance.

Walker is a cop from D.C. whose marriage fell apart because he's a workaholic. He has 2 sons from his marriage that he basically ignores except for 1-2 weeks out of every year. He blames his ex-wife for all his shortcomings. It's obvious he never even tried to have a good marriage or to be a good father. He even admits that he cut his honeymoon short in order to work. He blames Laurie, his ex-wife, for that, too. Later in the book he tries to sell the idea that he never loved Laurie (I guess he just screwed her, married her for laughs, and had 2 kids he didn't want for no reason). But suddenly, when he meets Daisy, we're supposed to think he's good marriage/father material. Yeah, right. I'd have to be brain-dead to buy that one.

Daisy's father, King, likes to threaten people, run the town, and run everyone's lives that lives in the town. Go figure. Daisy has 2 brothers that seem more or less normal and decent, so the book wasn't a total loss, but the author's lousy hero ruins the romance nearly from the beginning, making the ending seem awkward and contrived.
Fun read. Stand-alone that is easy to follow. No graphic violence.

Plug and play storyline except the believable characters have distinct personalities. The dialogue is thought-provoking, humorous and snarky.

No desire to re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.
When a small time school teacher takes in an orphaned boy , she runs into all kinds of trouble from family, job, and the boy's newly discovered uncle. The characters in the story are strong, particularly King Spencer, the teacher's meddling father.
I absolutely loved everything about this story. I love stories that take place in small towns. I grew up in a very small town myself; where everyone knows your business, and sadly enough...even sometimes before you do. The people who live in small town might be a real pain sometimes, but they are also the most loving and caring people you'll ever meet. And that is just the kind of small town citzens we got with this story. The normal everyday nosy busy-bodies, the caring neighbors, the friendly shopkeepers, and we also got a few really unique characters thrown in the mix, to boot! This book made me laugh one minute, and cry the next.

I love a story where the women are just as tough as their male counterparts, and we got that in spades with this book. Daisy was a force to be reckon'd with, for sure. Francis, Gail, and the Reverend were the same way; they stood strong for what they believed in.... and there was no way they would allow anyone to stand in their way, no matter who it was. Although; watching the way Daisy and Walker had to do that fancy dance around each other while struggling to deal with what to do about Tommy, was really, really sweet to watch. They also had to deal with Daisy's interfering father, and her two brothers, at the same time, which made it even more enjoyable.

King Spencer sort of reminded me of a "Boss Hog" type personality, only with a mashmallow heart. I love how he tried to be this rough-tough guy act....too bad no one took his threats seriously, especially his kids. ;)
Tommy--- I just loved that sweet child. I fell for him from day one and that love only grew stronger as the story went on.
I also felt really bad for Gary; he was sort of caught between a rock and a hard place.
Rriveting! Am rereading book #2 in the series and loosing sleep because I can't put it down. I want to reread book #3 (I already purchased) when I'm done. Thanks, Amazon!
I really get involved with the characters and the story lines in Sherryl Woods' stories. I'm always delighted to begin the next book.
Sheryl woods manages to balance the cheesy Roma writing with interesting characters and situations. You feel for each person with their individual struggles. I love a series set around a group of people in a given are. Sometimes you just need a good,easy read that has a good ending. She may not win a literary award but there is much to enjoy a bout her stories
