Just call her Christmas Eve…
Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages, and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.
Eve's worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve's definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life!My Opinion 4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
All of the book in this series can be read as a stand alone as the author gives enough background on the other main characters without it telling too much from the other books. However I am still disappointed in the Cheyenne/Dylan sub plot.
I was not too sure if I liked Eve in previous books, but after reading her story you can see why she was finding things a little hard when all her friends are getting married and having kids around her. At 35 she is lonely and wants more out of life.
From the first page enters the man who is to change her future in more ways than she can imagine. Not only is he handsome, the man she wakes up to in her bed the morning after her drunken solo birthday drinks has an incredible amount of secrets he's been on the run from for years.
Rex has changed his name so many times and been on the run for so long and he's getting tired of it. However he just can't seem to stop himself going to Eve time and time again. He see's something in her he wants buts knows he can't have. However, their first night together many have had consequences.
All of Eve's friends play a part in trying to see that the man she is with is telling many lies and is not the man he says he is. She understands but see's something in him that they cannot see, and thinks that she could be the woman to help him.
The story has you guessing until the very end as to what is going to happen between them and we even get the truth as to what happened the the little girl who died at the B & B all those years ago and Ted investigates it for his new book.
I'm still looking forward to what will happen for Joe, Baxter, Kyle and Riley as they have yet to have their own HEA.
