Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks.
So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers.
But Willa Knightly is not the conniving woman he expects to find.
Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart.
And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.
Adorable Christmas story, filled with lovely Christmassy moments, in the winter wonderland, that Marietta, Montana is.
There are so many things to love about this story, the scenery, the characters, the winter activities, all beaming up with the old fashioned Christmas spirit.
Add to that the most adorable little boy, a cancer survivor, so sensitive spirit, but a true athlete in the body, now that he beat cancer. I love Scout.
Willa and Finn form a sort of a holiday romance, they spent time together, get to know each other, and soon both of them are falling for each other, but either of them are completely honest with each other. Because there's no way Willa could know, that they didn't meet by chance.
This story made me smile several times, there's something very tender about it. The connections Willa and Finn make in the story, not with each other, but others in Marietta, is intriguing.
And even though the conflict between Finn and Willa is heartbreaking, as all the secrets are revealed, they don't dwell on it, but soon accept their responsibility in the matter, and find forgiveness.
A lovely, touching story, that will give you back some of the magic of childhood Christmases
