Book Review: Every Perfect Gift

About Every Perfect Gift:

Book 3 in Dorothy Love's Hickory Ridge Romance series.

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 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 Opinion
Every Perfect Gift is a perfect gift to yourself or another avid book reader this holiday season! The cover alone got me wanting to snuggle up in front of a fireplace with a blanket and this book and get lost for hours!

Once I started reading it, I forgot all about the blanket and fireplace and was pulled into the stories of the characters! Dorothy Love writes with so much description and flow and I just couldn't put it down! I really loved the setting and the time period - mountains and a historical romance about the 1800's - two of my favorite things!

I am definitely going to have to go read the first two books in this series now!
