The Book
Release Date: 24 October 2015
Goodreads Link

Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks. So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers. 

But Willa Knightly is not the conniving woman he expects to find. Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart. And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.

My Review 3.5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Tule Publishing for an honest review**

I would say that this is the best book of the series which is kinda of sad, because it leaves us with questions unanswered which annoyed me.

Willa is a nurse who helped Finn's dad in his dying days, it is only because his dad left her some money in his will that Finn knows anything about Willa.  His dad also gave Willa a ring and bought her a trip to Marietta, Montana for christmas before he died.

Following Willa to Marietta, Finn gets more than her bargained for.  He suspects a bit of a gold digger.  What he gets is a compassionate single mother with a son who is only just in remission from cancer and with big debts to pay.

The romance was sweet and it was nice to see who these characters ended connecting with the previous characters.

What did annoy me though was the added element of the rings and a necklace.  We find out that at one point the Branbles had four rings and a necklace made.  We find out where two of the rings are, but nothing else.  This makes you think there are going to be more books to find them, however as this book was published four years ago with no other follow ups, its safe to say we will never find out what happened to them.

It is a brilliant feel good book for the holidays, which you can now find as a film too.
