Joe Mason is the town's bad boy. Literally. He's just returned from a four year stint in prison. He wants nothing more than to put the past behind him and get on with his life. He's had a secret crush on Katy since grade school, but when Katy's parents hire him to be their handyman, she's less than thrilled to have him around.
But soon, through her young son's eyes, Katy discovers the good in Joe. As their feelings for one another deepen, small town gossip and prejudice threaten to ruin everything. Will Joe's past come between them, or will they be able to get beyond it and hold onto a love neither expected?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a wonderful and touching holiday story about love, second chances, and small town life. It’s a beautifully written romance and so heartwarming, I recommend as a great read any time of year. Not only does it remind the reader about the importance of Thanksgiving but it also reminds us to open our hearts and minds to those who’ve made mistakes and are working to set things right. Everyone deserves a second chance if they work for it and this book highlights how detrimental gossiping and bullying can be in that setting.
