Christmas in Good Hope

August 1st, 2017
Author: Cindy Kirk     Series: Good Hope #1

Amaryllis “Ami” Bloom’s cheerful smile greets everyone in Good Hope, Wisconsin. But her merry facade hides a dark secret she won’t ever forget. Still, she throws herself into celebrating Christmas—and convinces her handsome, and stubborn, new neighbor to join her.

Beckett Cross, however, is determined not to celebrate the holidays. He moved to Good Hope to leave behind reminders of how he’d had it all…and lost everything. But it’s hard to resist adorable Ami, the designated keeper of the small town’s holiday traditions, when she asks for help with the Twelve Nights celebrations. And Ami has a hard time resisting Beck’s soft Southern drawl and gentle eyes. Will a Christmas miracle give them a second chance at love and the hope to heal both of their hearts for good?

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

I don’t know about others, but for me, this book was a little slow to start and took me about 75-100 pages before I started getting into the story – somewhere about when Beck and Ami started to get chummy.

One of my favorite parts is when Beck helped Ami carry her tree home to decorate it and when Ami revealed she had a tattoo, which at first Beck didn’t believe her and then asked her where it was at, which Ami told him “That’s for me to know and you to find out.” – he literally takes her phrasing seriously and tells her “challenge accepted”.

I will say I thought Beck would hold Ami’s accident over her head due to how his previous wife died, but he learned to move on and forgive.

Besides Ami’s slight secret – I wouldn’t really call it a secret or anything bad, because she didn’t do nothing wrong; you’ll have to read it to understand – , there isn’t any angst or drama that keeps the hero and heroine apart like other books have.

After finishing this, I’m onto Prim and Max’s story.
