Father Found: The Daddy School, Book 1 | [Judith Arnold]

Father Found: The Daddy School, Book 1

Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: 30 years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called "Guy Stuff". Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling - a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha - strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he's her father.

Publisher's Summary

Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: 30 years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called "Guy Stuff". Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling - a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha - strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he's her father.

Maybe he is and maybe he isn't. But first things first. He's never fed a baby or changed a diaper in his life. He doesn't own a crib or a stroller. In a panic, he phones the nearest hospital, where neonatal nurse Allison Winslow takes his call and tells him about a class she teaches called the Daddy School.

Classes on how to be a dad are exactly what Jamie needs. But when he attends his first class and sees the tall, earnest, amazingly beautiful and even more amazingly competent Allison, he realizes that he might just need more from her than her lectures on how to hold a baby.

Jamie's efforts to be a father to this precious baby touch Allison. His sense of humor amuses her. His striking good looks turn her on. But how can she trust the sort of guy who'd sleep with a stranger on vacation, without giving a thought to the consequences? How can she give her heart to such a reckless man?

Winner of the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award! Book One of Judith Arnold's popular Daddy School series.

    "A Humorous Romantic Comedy!"
    Would you listen to Father Found again? Why?

    Yes. I found this book to be very funny and quite entertaining! I loved hearing the mans point if view about having a new baby around.


    What other book might you compare Father Found to and why?

    I don't like to compare books because if someone doesn't like the book I compared it to, then they wouldn't like this book & that just isn't a fair judgement.


    What about Tom Dheere’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed his voices! Tom does a really good job narrating this story. He adds all the excitement & humor when & where it is needed!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud a lot! I was totally rooting for Jamie & Allie to get together! I love how Samantha was described throughout the book too! This book was so good, I listened to it in 1 sitting today!


    Any additional comments?

    A very enjoyable story! The author & narrator kept me totally entertained throughout the book Even Allie's grandma was funny! I look forward to the next book in this series!

    "When a single guy finds a baby ..."
    Any additional comments?

    Father Found is the first in "The Daddy School" series. Jamie McCoy is a 30 year single guy, who after having a fun week at a resort 9 1/2 months ago, finds an abandoned infant on his back deck. The note left with the baby states that Jamie is the father. Having never cared for a baby before, Jamie contacts the local hospital for help. Allison Winslow is a neonatal nurse who loves helping others. She also runs a class for fathers to be called "the Daddy School". Jamie shows up to her class to get the help he needs with his new daughter. Not only does Jamie learn to care for his baby but he also starts to care for Allison.

    I liked this book very much. Ms. Arnold tackles the subject of fatherhood and what it takes to be a good father, even if you weren't even thinking of becoming a Dad.

    Mr. Dheere gives each character their own voice, pacing and emotion. He draws you into the story and makes you want to listen to see what is happening next. I am glad that he is reading the 2nd and 3rd book of this series. I am interested to see where Ms. Arnold goes with the "Daddy School" idea.

    I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy a good romance with a little more too them. I would listen to this book again.
