Wanting Christmas magic and hoping to make it happen brought Tucker and Laird together on a Montana pond one fateful night. Both wanted and hoped and worked hard to fulfill the challenges they set for themselves at the beginning of the book and by the end they had achieved all and even more than they had imagined when first they set out on their month-long journeys.
What joy it was to read this story! I adored Tucker’s unapologetic acceptance of herself even though for one month she hoped to rein herself in a bit while reconnecting with her twin sister. I loved Laird’s strengths that included but were not limited to his amazing cooking skills, physical abilities and his willingness to listen nonjudgmentally while helping Tucker achieve her goals. Tucker and Laird together brought out the best in one another – and their love story was one I could not put down. I have not read previous books in this series and did not need to - this book was a standalone and standout - in my opinion.
Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review.
