About the book:
Should Rachel take a risk, or play it safe and possibly lose the man who could help fulfill her dreams?
Sous Chef Rachel Narrelli returns to Wildflower Island looking for a fresh start for herself and her young son, but discovers that life has a lot of bumps in the road even in idyllic Wildflower Island. She is grateful when new friend Chris Campbell offers support as she faces obstacles with her new job and new life. She care for Chris but must decide if she is willing to risk her heart to a man with an uncertain future.
A self-proclaimed workaholic, Chris Campbell comes to Wildflower Island hoping to take life at a slower pace. When a new guest at the Wildflower B&B catches his eye, he is drawn to her. But how will a woman and her young son fit into his future – a future that’s uncertain at best? And most of all, how can he reconcile her lack of faith in God with his strong religious beliefs.
An absolutely incredible Christmas romance!
I loved all three of the main characters; Rachel Narrelli, her son Jason, and Chris Campbell. We met Rachel in the first book of this series. It was wonderful having her come back to Wildflower Island after 3 years away. I really enjoyed seeing how she had matured over that period of time. But she has some baggage that she had to work through during this story. I liked the fact that she dealt with it in a forthright manner without trying to hide it.
Chris was a wonderful Christian, very strong in his beliefs. He wanted to deal with life and even relationships according to the Bible and his beliefs.
I think my favorite thing was that both Rachel and Chris happy to take things slowly and work at developing a friendship before anything else.
