SEASON OF HOPE
The Gift Of Forgiveness
Gavin Sawyer knows he's in trouble the moment he meets Evie Thorne at the downtown Denver mission where they both volunteer. He's drawn to the pretty journalist, even though reporters have caused him nothing but heartache in the past. Soon Gavin begins to let his guard down as he sees that this wonderful woman may be someone he can trust with his heart. But when he brings her home to meet his family during the holidays, Evie's secret past suddenly comes to light. Will their newfound love survive when he learns the truth?
Picture this -- a cold rainy Saturday. The wind is howling around my wee old house with so much force the window panes are rattling. But do I mind? Absolutely not! Why? Because I'm curled up with a warm fur buddy at my feet and a box of Love Inspired books at my side. What to read? What to read? Making that first choice was agonizing, but once I opened up Season of Hope I was committed and devoured it in an afternoon. I just didn't want to put it down.
Carmichael has a distinctive style that just trips off the tongue if you've a mind to read out loud. Snappy, funny, poignant, mysterious -- words that burst into images and touch my emotions. That's considered a winning book for me. I'm all about living vicariously through heroines. And Evie is such an enticing one. Likeable from the start, a bit self-depreciating and with a mysterious past that the author reveals by slow degrees. Loved the pacing in both plot and romance.
This is Virginia Carmichael's second LI Christmas book and it is just as exquisite as the first. Definitely a story that will woo you into the holiday spirit.
