This was a sweet contemporary romance about two wounded people finding friendship, romance, and healing tucked away beside the beach in Santa Rosa. Grace has headed to her boss's beach house for a low-key Christmas—and the opportunity to recover from the grief of her ex-husband's recent marriage to her best friend. Seth has been hiding out for three years following his own divorce in the wake of a devastating loss.
There's a little bit of instalove involved here, but it's the gentle sort as Grace and Seth work together in the wake of the kind of disasters that seem to follow Grace—a burst water pipe that causes a whole lot of damage to her boss's beach house, a broken foot for Seth. Restoration and healing is the theme woven through each page of this novella, which is the perfect length for those looking for a quick read.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
