season for love . . .
Sophie DiRossi loved growing up in
Harmony Harbor. But after fleeing in disgrace many years ago, it is the last place
she wants to be. Left homeless by a fire, she’s forced to go back to the small
coastal town that harbors a million secrets, including her own. Sophie sees
this secret reflected every day in her daughter’s blue eyes-and she must keep
it hidden from the only man she has ever loved.Sophie’s return is a shock for
everyone . . . especially Liam Gallagher. The firefighter had some serious
feelings for Sophie-and seeing her again sparks a desire so fierce it takes his
breath away. Now Liam will do whatever it takes to show Sophie that they
deserve a second chance at love, even if everything they’ve concealed threatens
to keep them apart. In this special town at this special time of the year,
Sophie and Liam can only hope for a little holiday magic . . .
When I saw that Debbie Mason had a new series – Harmony Harbor – I was excited! I adored her Christmas, Colorado series. I can tell this series will be just as good as the previous one.
I struggled with getting into Mistletoe Cottage. I really did. I’m not too sure what happened. I just felt bored. But after about the first 50-ish pages, I was ready for more. It was not something I couldn’t put down, but as soon as I picked up back up (numerous times) I could read 20-25 pages in one sitting. I know that doesn’t seem like much, but it is to me.
Liam and Sophie were great together. They each came from troubled pasts, but it made them who they are. The way Mason writes them is unique, just as the small town is. She truly knows how to world-build and hardly leaves anything out!
This was the perfect book to a start of a new series. It kept me in the Christmas spirit, and I can’t wait to read more by Mason!
