This short, sweet story is all about finding love, forgiving yourself for past mistakes and moving on from those mistakes. Christian and his granddaughter stay at a bed and breakfast for Christmas and they meet Joy who owns the B&B. This is the first book I’ve read with older characters falling in love (she’s 48 and he’s in his 50’s) but you learn that, no matter your age, love is still love and you’re never too old to have fun.
They’ve both made mistakes and experienced devastating losses. Christian has moved on better in my opinion than Joy, but I believe that’s because he has a loving granddaughter in his life while Joy has no one. Their relationship starts off fast, a little too fast for Joy, but a sweet and romantic love blossoms between them. This story is a feel-good romance I’m sure many women could relate to.
I believe I received an ARC due to a few punctuation errors and random dashes scattered throughout the book. The story is written by a British author and, as an American reader, I felt a little confused at times due to various British words and phrases I’m unfamiliar with. This didn’t take away from the story, per se, but I did have to re-read a few sections to understand what was said or what had happened.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more by Amanda Ward.
