Her secret Christmas wish
Dr. Grace Forbes's dramatic first day in Manhattan Mercy ER is unforgettable—especially when she runs into her old flame, ER chief Charles Davenport, again!
That spark is still there between them but they're different people now—after losing his wife, Charles is a single dad to adorable twin boys, while Grace has survived cancer but lost her dream of having children.
Yet, as the weather gets colder, she is drawn into the warmth of his family—could he make her Christmas wish come true?
An emotional and heartwarming tale of finding your place in the world, following your destiny, and finding your true north.
I absolutely adore the connection between Dr. Grace Forbes and ER chief Dr. Charles Davenport. They met in medical school, the spark was evident between them even then, but life happened just when they had a chance to build something lasting, and they were drifted apart. But they get a second chance with the connection and possibilities if life just would not interfere again. I admire that Charles did not dilute the bond, the spark, the meaning Grace had for him, even when he had a chance for it several times. He stood up for his feelings, he messes up, sure, no one is perfect, but he is willing to go the extra mile to prove his love, his level of commitment, and the depth of his feelings. That's what I love about reading romance novels about mentally mature people, they don't hide their feelings and intentions.
Charles' twin boys would melt anyone's heart, and they sure won me over. The boys and Houston gave some humorous moments to the tale, kept me smiling like a loon.
The medical knowledge the author has is beyond reproach. She knows what she is talking about, she shares her knowledge with intense scenes where life and death are in the balance, yet using language that didn't go over my head while reading the story. The hectic life at the ER sounds realistic and practical.
A poignant and touching story of two soul mates getting a second chance to build a relationship despite all the life's challenges - the hectic life of the ER, the losses in life, and life-altering illnesses, even the relentlessly hunting paparazzis.
