Then along comes Gabe who had grown up near her but never really knew her that well. Gabe was a sweetheart. There were no long drawn-out conflicts or misunderstandings--a definite plus in my opinion. I don't care much for romances where the whole book is full of couples arguing or not understanding what the other person meant, and sadly, I see this too much in romance books. This was not that kind of romance. The author gave me time to care about the couple before they confessed their feelings for each other. When the couple had their misunderstanding, it was resolved quickly.
Overall, this was a heartwarming book. I wanted a happy ending after all Joy had been through, and I wasn't disappointed.
Joy was a great character, she grew in the story like all heroines should, and I didn't once want to slap her character silly.
Gabe was also a great character, nice hero, and I also didn't once want to slap him silly! (His sisters were a whole different story:')
There was just enough pathos in the story that my husband had to bring over the tissue because I wouldn't stop reading and put down my Kindle... Don't get me wrong, just because I'm a weeper doesn't mean that this isn't a wonderful story. As we get closer to the holidays I will probably re-read it.
There's nothing like the girl/boy next door to make you take a deep, romantic breath!
