Review by: Larkspur
How can she give away her heart with family on her mind?
The ring looked familiar, very much like one Vicky had admired before. She’d seen it only through glass, but now it was held out before her…and a man was on bended knee. Hesitation can kill the greatest of moods, and perhaps even a marriage proposal.
Josh stood, heart hanging in the balance, waiting for Vicky to accept his ring, or deny him again.
One man’s question could give them both the gift of love and family for the holidays.
Victoria Williams hasn’t trusted a man since her ex-husband left her for another woman and, right now she has more to worry about than having a new man in her life.
Josh Miller is a cancer nurse who falls in love with Victoria at first sight when she literally runs into him at the grocery store, but will he and her family be able to convince her to take a leap of faith?
Family for the Holidays is a warm and sweet story that grabs the reader right by the heart and doesn't let go until the last page. It's well written and the characters are fleshed out, three dimensional and very real.
The only problem I had with the novel was the dialogue of the Williams children -- they sounded far too adult when they spoke. But that was a small thing in light of the rest of the story.
All-in-all, this was a great romance with subtle hints of physical love that any reader could enjoy.
