Enters Sophie’s brothers who have come from Kent to take Sophie back for Christmas. They are astounded to find her alone with a man and a baby As it turns out, his family and hers are both intertwined. I don’t want to say more or give away the plot.
Humorous, warm, sexy and real seem to be the first words that come to mind here. I really enjoyed this novel and was so taken with the amazing descriptive talents of Grace Burrowes. I felt the cold of the snow; the smells of the Christmas baking; the warmth and love of Baby Kit; and the compassion and trust of Grace and Vim.
