Can a magical Christmas under glass…
…bring them back together for good?
Widowed dad Adam Masterson still doesn’t understand why Joy Boston left Indian Lake and broke his heart all those years ago. Now she’s returned to sell her grandfather’s beloved poinsettia greenhouse—and Joy and Adam’s connection is as strong as ever. But Joy has a life in New York. And Adam has only until Christmas to convince Joy that she belongs in Indian Lake—with him.
Every single time I read a novel set in Indian Lake, I can easily imagine residing there. It sounds like such a charming place where friends and neighbors rally around each other, even when a person feels underserving of it.
Joy Boston receives a warm and welcoming homecoming when she returns to her hometown after having been away for so long. She is surrounded by old friends who want to help her with reviving her beloved grandfather's poinsettia greenhouse. To be honest, I have never been a fan of poinsettias but after reading this book, I kind of want one or two of them and I almost started decorating for Christmas.
Adam Masterson and his young son, Titus stole my heart along with Mrs. Beabots. I would love to have a Mrs. Beabots in my life and not just for her amazing wardrobe but because she is a good person. All of the characters in this book and series have been good and kind which is one of the reasons why I always look forward to returning to the shores of Indian Lake. There is something special about this place the author created and the characters she has so lovingly crafted.
We all make mistakes and without forgiveness and second chances, I think this would be a sad world but it doesn't have to be that way and if you pick up a copy of this book, you will see what I mean.
Catherine Lanigan has become one of my favorite authors because she truly does write heartwarming novels that are suitable for all readers, ones you can share with your daughters, mothers. grandmothers, friends and family. I love a sweet, clean romance and Ms. Lanigan is one of the best authors in this genre.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
