Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.

Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.

Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.

When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She's equally intrigued with him but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.


My Thoughts:

Every Perfect Gift is the third and final book in the A Hickory Ridge Romance series but it reads well as a stand alone book. Dorothy Love has again written a real winner; one that I could not put down.

Sophie is a young woman who is returning to Hickory Ridge; she is a talented writer and new owner of the Gazette. When Sophie returns little does she realize that Ethan Heyward the architect of a new resort would eventually win her heart. Both are running from childhood secrets that could keep them apart.

While Sophie is working to gather news and create a name for the Gazette, she is hit with a backlash from a local establishment. Sophie is determined to make it over the hurdle that has been placed in front of her. She is encouraged by some of the ladies in the town about how she is working to keep the paper a float.

The Christmas reunion that brings Ada and Wyatt Caldwell back to Hickory Ridge is heartwarming. The emotions you feel are outstanding and believable.

I received the E-book for free from the publisher through the BookSneeze program in return for my honest opinion.
