THE UNEXPECTED GIFT
A yuletide legacy...
When city girl Morgan Williams arrived in Seaside, Maine, on Christmas Eve, to claim the cottage she'd inherited, she came face-to-face with the handsomest man she'd ever seen. But looks weren't the only thing that Grant Kincaid had to offer. And when he enlisted Morgan's help to raise money for Good Shepherd Camp for troubled kids, she realized there were more important things in life than expensive cars and fancy clothes. Soon Morgan was yearning for a different life...one that included faith and a storng, steadfast Grant by her side.
I had a hankering for holiday reading plus I wanted to review Christmas books early enough that the giveaways would reach their destination before Christmas so I ordered some early Christmas reads online at Harelquin. Unbeknownst to me, all three books that I ordered are re-releases of previously published material. That's fine by me since I wasn't reading Love Inspired 5+ years ago, but some of you might have been so I'm giving fair warning.
I love it when an author creates a timeless romance and this is one. First, I love the unhurried pace. The romance develops by degree over a period of time and there's lots of opportunity for character growth and plot development. Makes for a more realistic read. The Unexpected Gift is as much about Morgan and Grant finding themselves as it is about them finding each other. I loved the depth of their journey and how it draws to a rewarding conclusion. Another great holiday read.
