I absolutely adored this story! Warm, heartfelt, and full of triumph, The Secret Santa Wishing Well, is certain to get you into the Holiday spirit. Ms. Barrett does an excellent job of capturing the nuances of everyday life. We all have scars and baggage we carry along with us on the journey known as life.
In the case of our Heroine, Cheyenne the bulk of her stress is caused by an ex-husband turned dead beat dad, Eric. Forced to raise two children on her own she works hard to provide, and still try to maintain an upbeat attitude. I couldn’t help but admire her as she pulled twelve hour shifts, and still managed to
donate her time to charity. Flawed and healing her thought process breaks my heart at times, but made the journey to wholeness so much sweeter!
Jacob. *Sighs blissfully* While he had his own issues, the man stole my heart. Sensitive, caring, and strong when he needed to be, he was the perfect match for Cheyenne and her children. The way he adored not only Cheyenne, but her children, Ben, and Desire almost brought me to tears. The bonds forged between all three of them added depth and richness that truly moved me.
Step by step Jacob and Cheyenne maneuver their way through past hang ups, Eric and tragedy to reach their happily ever after. I highly recommend this feel good romance.
Baby Stetson by Nikki Lynn Barrett
Genre - Romantic suspense
Length - Novel
TBR Reviewer - Daniella
Rating: 4 stars - A Recommended Read.
Heat: 3 - Blush Worthy.
This story is about Avery, who was adopted by two wonderful parents, after she was found abandoned on a door step. Her nickname and stage name as a singer is Baby Stetson, as when she was found as a baby she was wearing a little Stetson hat.Even though Avery is very happy with her adoptive parents and the
life she has, she can´t help but wonder about her birth parents.
The answers seem to be coming when two guests check in to the inn owned by her parents and causes a turmoil in Avery´s previously safe and stable life. One is the sexy, but very secretive Lucas, to whom Avery feels an immediate attraction. The other is a man who claims to be Avery´s birth father.
This was a very well written book with great characters and a great story. It had a very good balance of romance, suspense and action. It is a page turner, with a good plot that keeps you guessing about all the characters true stories and their motives. Avery and Lucas is a lovely couple with great chemistry. They had some ups and downs on their way to their, albeit a little bit rushed, happily ever after.
One part of the story came from left field a little and could have been left out (sister Paula) and the few sex scenes felt a bit clumsy (in otherwise great writing). All in all this was a very enjoyable and recommendable book and I can´t wait to read the next book about Avery´s childhood friend and band mate Jameson.
