Hott Synopsis:

Winnie Hays has finally returned to Coffee Creek to try to get her life back in order after a series of devastating blows. Losing your fiance on your wedding day and then finding out you’re pregnant would devastate anyone but Winnie’s son is almost one and it’s time to return to life and stop hiding.

The first thing she needs to do is to introduce her son to his paternal family. Since her intended’s mother never liked her she’s sure this isn’t going to be an easy reunion but hopefully they’ll be able to work through it… but not if she keeps lusting after the man who feels responsible for the destruction of your life.

Hott Review:

Don’t laugh but I picked this up thinking it went with Linda Lael Miller’s Parable County Series that all start with “Big Sky”. So it was quite a shock when I started reading. Luckily, though, I enjoyed this even more!
What I liked: Though there was quite a lot of back story I really enjoyed this. It’s definitely a stand alone & a great Christmas read but I’m certain that you’re going to want to go back & read the others as well.
I think my favorite part is how close the family is. I really enjoyed feeling like part of the family. Plus… I adore books about single moms finding someone to love them.
What I didn’t like: I REALLY didn’t like the mother-in-law. Even though I tried to understand where she was coming from I really never could develop more than a basic acknowledgement of her character.

  1. Sounds good even though I hate annoying mother in laws.
