Every Perfect Gift~Dorothy Love Book Review

by adustyframe ~ December 12th, 2012

I received the opportunity to review this book from LitFuse Publicity. I reviewed the second book in this series, so I said yes. Plus I couldn’t resist the pretty cover!

I enjoyed this book about Sophie Caldwell and her attempt to bring the newspaper of her childhood hometown back to life. As a woman in this time period, she faces resistance of course.

When she interviews a man building a local resort, sparks fly!

The story also shares her struggles with the secrets of her past. The handsome resort builder has some secrets of his own and if they are going to have any sort of relationship, the secrets have to face the light of day!

Like the second book in this series, I did feel there were things “missing”–parts of the story that I had obviously missed since I’ve not read book 1. It wasn’t enough to take away from the enjoyment of the stories, but it’s not completely a stand alone book in case you’d like to know that!

About Every Perfect Gift:

Book 3 in Dorothy Love’s Hickory Ridge Romance series.

Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.

Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.
Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.

When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She’s equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.
