    This was a quick, sweet story. I like that the story took place in Florida, and that the Sinclair family was involved--Levi is a main character. It was nice to see how and what the family is doing. The dogs were cute and stole the story. I also liked the ending; it was humorous and happy.

The two main characters were wonderful, as well. I’m, once again, looking forward to the next book in this series.With This Ring is a great addition to the Windswept Bay series that can be read as a part of the series or as a stand alone. There are numerous characters who make appearances in all of the books of the series, so you really get a better all around understanding of what is going on if you read all of the stories. And they are all so fun and romantic, how could you not want to?I received a complimentary copy of this book.

    You can't really go wrong with this series. I've been looking forward to hunky Levi's story, and it was a sweet one indeed. One that shows there can be joy after loss, life after death, and happy endings in life. Add this Sinclair brother to your reading list. *I received an advanced copy of this book*

    The blurb drew me in with a little boy asking both God and Santa for a daddy for Christmas. How cute is that? This little guy was adorable. Can you imagine taking the Police Chief for show-and-tell, not because of his job but to say he was going to be the boy's new daddy? Since his mother was also his teacher, she witnessed the scene.

She later tried to explain that Levi was not going to be his daddy but the 6-year-old didn't believe her.This was a great romance. Surprisingly (after being set up) Levi and Jessica (Kevin's mom) found that they liked each other's company and started spending time together. Maybe Kevin knew what he was talking about when he took Levi for show-and-tell? Jessica was adamant that they weren't dating. She had lost her husband 2 years earlier and did not want to risk heartbreak again. She especially didn't want to be with someone in a dangerous job. Jessica was a terrific mother. She didn't want to risk having her son hurt by getting attached to someone that she got involved with then potentially breaking his heart if he left. The characters were very real and likable. I loved the way Levi was with Kevin. He was kind and considerate of him. Levi was clearly very fond of the boy. And the dogs just helped tie this group together. Kevin's dog, Roscoe, was a big gentle-giant kind of dog that played with Kevin and looked out for him at the same time.I was smiling all the way through this book so if you like clean, sweet romances, you will love With This Ring.

    Jessica isn't ready to move on with her life romantically but her son has other ideas in this delightful story. When Kevin takes Levi the chief of police to show and tell, he creates an uproar that has the town wagging their tongues about. Levi is at odds with himself sure he is attracted to Jessica and something about Kevin and his mother speaks to his heart but will fate bring Kevin's spoken words to reality for him and Jessica.

Evidently the four Sinclair sisters fell in love in the first books and now the five Sinclair brothers are out to find the women of their dreams.Can I say this series trend - of large families with each sibling getting their own book and the characters intertwined - is getting a little old. It almost seems like a cop out, the characters are pre-formed and the storyline fairly formulaic. Can we spew these out any faster since there doesn't seem to have much character development, almost novella in depth, and lacking in plot development (they went there, they said this, there fingers/arms, etc tingle at the touch, blah, blah blah.) I turned to this for a quick easy read. It was, too bad it wasn't that enjoyable. The precocious little boy, Kevin, was the bright spot and even he was a bit unbelievable - but cute!!

The premise was cute and I actually added a star for the cuteness that is Kevin. Seriously Kevin and the dogs were the only things holding this book up for me at points.Without having read all the previous books I did not care about the parts that follow up with those book's characters. It was mainly surface throughout. I wanted more. I wanted to care about the supporting characters. I wanted to have more moments to show why they were in love. And above all I wanted more Kevin. If you need a short easy book in between other book, especially if they are intense, then this book will work. But definitely get it while it is free. I'm glad that I got it for free because otherwise it would not be worth it to me.

Life in Windswept Bay can be everything a person is looking for, and more.The story moves at a fast pace with well developed characters. The dialog is engaging, with attention to detail bringing you into their lives. I was drawn in from the beginning, and wanted to see Kevin and Jessica truly happy. Overall I found With This Ring an enjoyable sweet romance and feel other will enjoy it as well.

Rumours fly in the little town of Windswept Bay, especially as Levi and Jessica cannot deny the growing attraction to each other.A nice enough romance, with a good plot and likeable enough characters (though occasionally a bit exaggerated and very unrealistic in my opinion). Regarding the protagonists, they both are a bit weak, Levi more so than Jessica. The best thing in this book really was the little boy, Kevin, who at least made for some amusing situations - although again, I doubt that normal 6-year-olds are so smart and thinking in advance, to be honest, at least none I know.An absolute no-no was that twice, the names of the characters were mixed up - that should not have slipped through editing, sorry.

    Debra Clopton's books have been a joyous discovery. I like how she writes strong female characters who retain their feminity. At the same time, her male characters retain strength and masculinity without sacrificing the ability to show concern and respect to women. There's plenty of room for each of the characters to learn and grow, to experience freedom, and to follow their dreams. She weaves each tale so wonderfully, I haven't gotten tired of reading her books yet like I sometimes do with Debra Clopton's books have been a joyous discovery.

She weaves each tale so wonderfully, I haven't gotten tired of reading her books yet like I sometimes do with other prolific romance authors, especially in series. This particular story touched my heart because of something recent that happened "close to home." I felt like I could relate to the characters more easily and really immerse myself in the tale. The main characters - a widowed mother, her son, and a bachelor sheriff - find themselves in some tricky situations and I enjoyed seeing how they dealt with things and how they learned and grew together from the first chapter to the last. I honestly can't wait to read more of the Windswept Bay novels. If you enjoy sweet romance with relatable characters who tug on your heartstrings, then this is the book for you.

    Little kids and puppies are usually a winning combination, and that is the case in With This Ring. I really enjoyed how spunky Kevin was and the fact that I could really visualize him. So many books with children have them having conversations way beyond their age and that is quite distracting. You also have a hunky police chief and a lonely and afraid widow, neither are even looking for love. An enjoyable read that also deals with some very real fears.

    Out of the mouths of little onesI have enjoyed this story so much that I am still smiling thinking of it. The main characters are a widow with a 6 year old son who asked Santa to bring him a daddy, and the chief of police of a small seaside town. Kevin introduced Levi (the Chief) to his classroom as his Daddy even though his mom had just met him. That caused a whole circus of events and a lot of ribbing. Beside the fun it is a beautiful love story. This story is well written and has all you need Out of the mouths of little onesI have enjoyed this story so much that I am still smiling thinking of it. The main characters are a widow with a 6 year old son who asked Santa to bring him a daddy, and the chief of police of a small seaside town. Kevin introduced Levi (the Chief) to his classroom as his Daddy even though his mom had just met him. That caused a whole circus of events and a lot of ribbing. Beside the fun it is a beautiful love story. This story is well written and has all you need for a good book.

    I enjoyed this well-written, sweet, heart warming book. Jessica is the mother of a six year old son and has been a widow for two years. Her son asks the Chief of Police, Levi, to come to school as his "show and tell," and surprises both his mom and Levi when he announces that Levi is his next dad! This can be read as a stand alone series, though it is part of a series with related characters set in Windswept Bay.

    Kevin wins!!Young Kevin's patience pays off. When Levi and Jessica find themselves with a very determined matchmaker & several very upset single moms, let the embarrassment begin! I laughed, so hard, when Levi was introduced to the class, not only as the Chief of Police but Kevin's future daddy. All before Levi & Jessica had even been on a date! Great book, with a wonderful storyline.
