Contemporary romance, His Holiday Family by Margaret Daley made me want to turn the page.
I was planning to save all my Christmas reviews for November and December, but I’m reading a super long book right now and have yet to finish, so I’ll start in on my Christmas book reviews I already had ready to go. 🙂
The story opens at the scene of an apartment fire where Nurse Kathleen Hart fears her cousin and young sons are inside. She tells Firefighter Gideon O’Brien her family is still inside and his captain sends him in to rescue them. Not long after Kathleen’s family shows up at the scene and she realizes she sent him into a raging fire for no reason. Then the unthinkable happens. Guilt ridden, Kathleen goes to the hospital to check on the fireman and discovers he’s her mother’s neighbor.
You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens, but suffice it to say it’s a great romance.
As I was reading I felt sorry for Kathleen because disaster after disaster plagued her and her sons. This type of thing often annoys me as a reader, but Margaret pulled it off. His Holiday Family, although not you’re typical feel good Christmas story, put a smile on my face.
