Home is more than a place . . .
Breaking free from her structured life, Chloe English quits her high-powered job and moves across the country to work as an art teacher. The simple life is all she hoped it would be until her house burns down, leaving her homeless. When a handsome firefighter swoops in to save the day, she can’t believe her luck. He’s laid-back and unassuming, everything she’s looking for in a man—or so he seems. It turns out he’s as ambitious as her ex, comes with a family who could be more stifling than hers, and harbors dark secrets he may never be able to share.
Orphaned as a teenager, Derek Sumner has found a place in his best friend’s family. However, the love and support of his surrogate parents and siblings can’t erase the grief and loss he struggles every Christmas to banish. But this year he meets the fun and sexy Chloe, whose optimism and sense of joy are incredibly contagious. Can she help him face his bleak past so they can forge a happy future?
This was a really good book. Not usually a big reader but I read this in 3 days. Lot of twists and turns and the end had some surprises that I did not see coming. Def would recommend.
Where the Heart Is
Quick, fun read that had me pulling for the lead female character right away.
Too little to fast
Just ok read. Although I like the characters enough I could have loved them with a little more development. Also, I felt the relationship was too little to fast, the "intimate moments" where they were supposed to be baring their soul didn't feel all that intimate. So just an ok for me.
