REVIEW - Home for Christmas (Sanctuary Island #4) by Lily Everett
Release Date: 6 October 2015
Tis the season for family and love…
At least it's supposed to be. For Libby Leeds, however, the holiday season is just another reminder of things she'd rather forget. When she left Sanctuary Island as an orphaned child, she never thought she'd go back except in her dreams, dreams she's kept alive by writing monthly column of her fictional small-town life, until her publisher sends her back home for the holidays.
Owen Shepard is a fallen hero, wounded in action rescuing three of his fellow soldiers, but after a whirlwind of media attention, all this charismatic Army Ranger wants is to get back on his feet and make it to Sanctuary Island to be with his daughter in time for Christmas. What he didn't expect was to be put on a crash course with a columnist hiding her past. Will the magic of Sanctuary Island at Christmastime allow them to find healing together?
My Opinion 4 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
Although this books is part of a series, it can most certainly be read as a stand alone book.
Libby is a journalist who writes a column in a magazine about her life on sanctuary island, only, the life she writes about is fictitious.
But as her little white lie has to come out to her editor, the man tells her she has a choice. Be fired or, host a family christmas for a wounded soldier just like in her column with his daughter.
The attraction between Libby and Owen is there from the beginning when they meet on the boat to the island, and stays there until truths are exposed and other relationships are formed.
It's a white Christmas, clean family feel good book that has a lovely HEA that is perfect to read sat next to a roaring fire whilst the rain lashes down and the wind howls outside.
