My Review: 5 Stars

I find it interesting to really get to know a character, especially one like Olivia, who seems to have it all. Practically forced into a glamorous career, Olivia is down on her luck and back in her small hometown to start over. Just because she has an immediate connection with newcomer, Tim, doesn't mean the road to a new life will be easy.

There are times when I couldn't help but to laugh out loud at the thoughts that popped out of Olivia's mouth. Yes, she's struggling to find herself, but she's very lovable and sweet, always wanting to help out. I absolutely loved watching her find her own two feet to stand on. Characters who have room to grow really warm my heart and soul and I really found this in Olivia. 

Of course, Tim is a great father and I love that he packed up and bought a bookstore in the small town where he ended up. He's such a comforting figure, even if he is a bit of a loner. His fierce protectiveness is very endearing and his daughter, Cora, is adorable.

I love a story that can sweep me right into its pages and I felt right at home with these people in this charming little town. I love how things are wrapped up in the epilogue, tying the whole series together. This is definitely one worth picking up this holiday season.

Content: mild romance; mild language
