About the Book:
And local doctor Charlie Yang finds her quiet, steady life disrupted by both an abandoned baby in the nativity manger, and a real-life mystery man. Sure, she's always wanted a family of her own, but she didn't imagine it coming from a baby that wasn't hers and a man who was more interested in living day by day than making long-term plans.
Ex-SEAL Dave Ricker hadn't planned on making Jewell Cove his forever home, but the talented and tender-hearted Charlie has him reconsidering his position on settling down. Can a beautiful woman, adorable baby and a small-town full of holiday spirit change his mind for good?
Charlie was the child of highly successful adults; one who was pushed to be the best from infancy. She never felt appreciated for who she was. Because of her parents, she went to medical school. Despite her parents, she chose to practice family medicine in a small town. It is now the Christmas season and Charlie is trying to become part of her new hometown. She wants nothing more than to belong and to settle down and have a family. Dave is just back from the Middle East. He has no plans to do anything permanent and thinks he likes being on his own by himself.
I enjoyed this book but to say it was anything other than a typical Christmas romance would be a stretch.
