An Unforgettable Christmas
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Hallmark Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful Christmas romance. In true Hallmark fashion, this book was enchanting. I could see this as a movie in my mind. The characters were wonderful and the plot was one that kept me turning the pages. I was a little sad to see it end. It was done so nicely that I wanted it to go on.
Sam falls and hits his head. Upon waking up in the hospital, he discovers he has amnesia. The doctors don't want him to go home alone so Angie, his accountant at his jewelry store takes him home with her and her family. The family consists of her son, mother and grandmother. They welcome him into their lives. As Sam struggles with trying to fill in the 26 year gap in his memory, he becomes entranced with Angie's family. He is given a second chance to discover how important family and friends really are. He had been such a workaholic that his personal life suffered.
I adored the dual POV format here. Both Angie and Sam were the perfect foil for each other. The rest of Angie's family were wonderful as well along with his Dad, David.
If you love Christmas romance that is also sweet and clean, then you will want to definitely read this one. It is a great way to spend a few hours. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
Stunning Christmas Memories
What does Christmas do to relationships? In this book, the author creates a classic holiday season scene by scene from first snow to children playing to holiday shopping to holiday cooking. With the workplace in a jewelry store and the home as a multigenerational family, the reader is drawn back towards childhood memories while the author presents the story line in a contemporary, realistic environment.
This story brings us a series of individuals who choose this Christmas season to develop relationships. Preceding each relationship is a key moment that provides depth concerning family and connections. The author skillfully engages our memories of Christmas past to help the reader understand each character and why their relationship is significant to the plot of the book. This book had me calling my brothers to share memories of our shared Christmas seasons. I received an ARC for review. I loved the book and would highly recommend it.
Lovely and delightful
Lovely and delightful, this sweet romance is a wonderful novel to give you the personal happiness that Christmas stirs in your heart. When Sam Hamilton, a rich, humorless, boring, and serious-minded owner of a jewelry store has an accident that affects his memory, someone needs to step up and take him in until he can fend for himself. His employee, Angie Lopez, who lives with her six-year-old son Pepe, her mother, and grandmother, complies. Several romances take shape during this happy ever season, bringing smiles and joy in this Blue Ridge Mountains town of Hopedale, Virginia. I loved it.
