Goodreads: Hearts are lighter and wishes burn a little brighter at Christmas…
Elizabeth Hamilton has been lost. Trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents, she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life. And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger and the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.
But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined. As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?
Ope’s Opinion: This is a wonderful holiday story. A great read during a hurried time of year. I like the way Thayne develops characters, weaves a wonderful story and writes so you can see it.
My only small complaint about the book is, that in the beginning, Thayne tends to repeat facts. It slows the story down. Other then that, I would recommend this book.
The ending is everything you expect and want with an opening for the next book.
I liked this one as well but agree about repetition slowing things down because its so noticeable.
I think I’d like this book, adding it to my looong list
