#BookReview – “Hope’s Dream” by Peggy Jaeger

Blurb

Hope Kildaire gave up her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner when a car accident killed her father and left her mother an invalid. Working two jobs and caring for her mother leaves the twenty-seven-year-old with no time for fun or relationships. When a law firm representing her paternal grandparents sends her several letters, Hope ignores them. She despises the family who disowned her father and wants nothing to do with them.

Lawyer Tyler Coleman's job is simply to obtain Hope's signature on a legal document. Getting it is harder than planned, though, when an unexpected attraction blossoms between them. If Ty is honest with Hope about why he's in Willow Springs, he'll fulfill his assignment but may risk hurting her.

The opportunity to have everything she's ever desired is at Hope's fingertips. Will her dream come true at the expense of Tyler's love? 

Review 

In book 2 in the Deerbourne Inn series, Hope Kildaire has given up her dreams of becoming a nurse practitioner to take care of wonderfully sweet but handicapped mother, Casey. She works two jobs, lives paycheck to paycheck, and only finds true happiness and enjoyment when she’s skiing, which works out since one of her jobs is as a ski instructor. Then she meets Tyler Coleson, a tourist in town for the winter season, and for the first time in years, she feels the spark of attraction for a man.
Tyler is a lawyer in town under false pretenses, and he needs Hope’s signature on a very important document. As he gets to know her and learns about her life, he realizes how empty is own life has become and that maybe it’s time for a change.
OMG! I loved Hope and Tyler. They’re smart, strong characters with real-life problems and concerns. They were very easy to relate to. Even though they started out as strangers, they instinctively trusted one another right off the bat. Romance bloomed in a fast, sweet way.
This is a fun, heartwarming, clean story. I got a little teary-eyed a few times when reading about Hope’s losses and the tough time she’s had. I really enjoyed this novella and look forward to reading more of Ms. Jaeger’s work.
5 Stars
