Denise Hunter has written a another superb romance. She excels at description and one can really almost feel like they are in a small New England Town.
Eden Martelli ,AKA Kate Bennett, a woman with her child Micah is on the run to a cabin in the woods where they can hide from killers. Her dilapidated car that she bought in Georgia breaks down in a small New England coastal town and all of her money and possessions are stolen. The owner of a Christmas tree farm, Beau Callahan hires her to cook and take care of his aunt with a fractured leg. He is dating the close friend of his brother Riley but finds himself really attracted to Eden. So begins a slow building romance. Eden has problems with being controlled by her past husband and father and feels she’s never had a chance to be free and really think on her own without interference. Beau doesn’t try to do this, but he knows as soon as Eden’s car is repaired and she has a small nest egg she will be gone.
What I liked: The element of mystery and the slow building love between the characters.
What I didn’t like: I didn’t like the one brother dating Paige, and the other loving her. Although this was resolved somewhat, I don’t like romances where family members are involved with the same person. Just my personal preference.
Would I recommend? Yes to anyone who likes a romance without every chapter filled with explicit sex.
I was provided a copy from Netgalley and Thomas Nelson Publishers for an honest review. So sorry but you can order in advance from Amazon.
