About the Book:
Sophie DiRossi loved growing up in Harmony Harbor. But after fleeing in disgrace many years ago, it is the last place she wants to be. Left homeless by a fire, she's forced to go back to the small coastal town that harbors a million secrets, including her own. Sophie sees this secret reflected every day in her daughter's blue eyes-and she must keep it hidden from the only man she has ever loved.
Sophie's return is a shock for everyone . . . especially Liam Gallagher. The firefighter had some serious feelings for Sophie-and seeing her again sparks a desire so fierce it takes his breath away. Now Liam will do whatever it takes to show Sophie that they deserve a second chance at love, even if everything they've concealed threatens to keep them apart. In this special town at this special time of the year, Sophie and Liam can only hope for a little holiday magic . . .
What can we say? It's a Christmas romance so the end was pretty apparent from the start. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this heartwarming story of two people who weren't really sure they were loveable.
Everyone has secrets and as they are revealed, love is allowed to grow. Sophie fled town years ago when she learned she was pregnant. She understood she wasn't good enough for the father, and he clearly didn't want her. One day she asked her mother (she had moved near her somewhat estranged mother) to watch her child and on her mother's watch, the house was set afire. As she is driving through her home town, her car dies and she is forced to stay. Fortunately, a local hotel is looking for a manager and she is hired. The only problem is that the owner of the hotel is her baby's great grandmother--and doesn't know it, or does she?
Great Grandmother dies shortly thereafter and, as a ghost, continues to meddle in the lives of her loved ones.
The book is the beginning of another series and I look forward to reading about other characters introduced in this story, Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy via NetGalley. Grade: B
