When reality show producer Sophia is assigned to convince Christmas fanatic Will to be on their holiday special, she imagines him to be an oddball momma’s boy wearing a reindeer Christmas sweater. What she doesn’t expect is the handsome, mysterious man who captures her attention, and seems determined to win her heart.
Their attraction is undeniable, and as charming Sophia convinces Will to work with her, she slowly unwraps the secrets in his past that make this determined and soulful man still yearn for the childhood he never had.
When the chaos of production starts, will Sophia be able to keep her promises to protect Will from being exploited, or will the bitter truth of reality television be a runaway train of disaster for both of them?
Join Sophia, Will and his dog Romeo to enter the world of his enchanting holiday house where stars shine indoors and snow is always falling…365 days of the year.
I enjoyed Ruth Clampett's debut novel, Animate Me, and was excited to hear about her latest one. Being able to read it and participate in this blog tour has been so much fun.
Though I tend to like a bit more back story, or history, I enjoy how Ruth dive's right into the world and story she's created. You feel as though you are already a part of the lives of the character's as you watch things play out.
The relationship between Sophia and Will was sweet and full of romance. She took the time to build them up, allowing us as readers, and also her characters. to discover what they liked about one another. It was realistic, with problems and doubt, but always the hope of more.
Ruth has a great way of setting the stage and pulling her readers into the stories she creates, and I know that I can't wait for more from her.
