Drawn Deeper by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars
Brenda Rothert’s DRAWN DEEPER is a heartwarming addition to the Lockhart Brothers Series. Dr. Kyle Lockhart has been recently divorced and now a single father of two boys. He finally finds someone he is interested in; however, she has a negative history with his family. This contemporary romance takes place in Lovely, Missouri.
My heart went out to Kyle. He married his high school sweetheart, Kim. She became an alcoholic and left him with two young boys. He is a wonderful father and man. He is the oldest of the Lockhart boys. I love that he appreciates his mom more for everything she did for them when they were growing up, now that he is a single father. I also respect that he stood up to his mother when she was being unfair. I love how the Lockhart brothers support each other.
I love Kyle’s kids: Jordan and Eric. Being a Harry Potter fan, I adored that their puppy is named Hagrid. I also, appreciate that Kyle bought his boys a puppy because Kim never wanted pets. He wanted to make his boys happy at a sad time in their lives.
I like Meredith Hobbs. I felt bad how she was treated in her community. I respect that she left Reed instead of doing something she knew she would regret. She misses her mother. She is a good daughter. She is self-sacrificing. I love that she tutors Kyle’s kids. She is wonderful with children. Meredith’s relationship with Kyle’s mother, Grace, was intense. It caused some interesting tension in the story.
Brenda Rothert’s DRAWN DEEPER was a wonderful read. The story was touching and convincing. It demonstrates the difficulties and benefits of living in a small town where everyone knows each other. This is a story of second chances. The characters are likable and grew throughout the novel. DRAWN DEEPER was well-written and emotional. The Lockhart Brothers is a wonderful series.
