A Gift of Family

GIVEAWAY

ROSS, MIA
A GIFT OF FAMILY

A man with secrets, ex-soldier Seth Hansen comes to the small town of Harland, North Carolina, to heal. The last thing he wants is to get involved -- with the community, or with lovely waitress Lisa Sawyer, who has big dreams of leaving Harland. When a massive storm hits, it will take a dramatic rescue, and Lisa's unshakable belief, to wake a part of Seth he thought he'd lost forever. Suddenly one reluctant hero finds himself captivated by Christmas spirit. If only he can help Lisa discover the place she really wants to be…. 

My Review:

Hallelujah, we're back in Harland with the Sawyer clan! You don't have to have read the author's previous books to enjoy this one, but if you have you'll be thrilled to meet up with some of your favourite characters...including Ruthy! Absolutely loved the dynamics between Seth and Lisa. Such contrasts -- but that made them compliment each other all the more. Ross tackles the difficulties in the life of a returned soldier with compassion and understanding. There is plenty of emotion in this read. Life at its grittiest...but sweetest too.This is the kind of feel good Christmas story that gets to the heart of the real meaning of the season. A heart-warming holiday read.
