Take Me Home for Christmas
Christmas is a time for remembering…Too bad not all memories are pleasant! Everyone in Whiskey Creek remembers Sophia DeBussi as the town's Mean Girl. Especially Ted Dixon, whose love she once scorned.
But Sophia has paid the price for her youthful transgressions. The man she did marry was rich and powerful but abusive. So when he goes missing, she secretly hopes he'll never come back—until she learns that he died running from an FBI probe of his investment firm. Not only has he left Sophia penniless, he's left her to face all the townspeople he cheated.…
Sophia is reduced to looking for any kind of work to pay the bills and support her daughter. With no other options, she becomes housekeeper for none other than Ted, now a successful suspense writer. He can't bring himself to turn his back on her, not at Christmas, but he refuses to get emotionally involved. He learned his lesson the last time.
Or will the season of love and forgiveness give them both another chance at happiness?
I received an ARC for an honest review
This was my first Brenda Novak book that I've read. I was pulled in right from the beginning. You really don't even realize that it's 400 pages long. Don't let that number scare you....you'll love it.
Sophia has had a rough lift, to say the least. She got pregnant, at a young age, and was forced to marry the guy.....He ended up being an abusive jerk of a husband!!! No one really noticed that there was anything wrong. They had the "perfect" life in everyone's eyes.
Then when everything comes crashing down on her, she finds her high school sweetheart. Of course, because of all of those years of abuse from her jerk hubby, she doesn't think she deserves to be happy or could possibly make anyone happy!
Well that's all you're getting from me!! Go try it!! I'm going to put the rest of the series on my TBR list.
I give this 3.5 stars!
