    Good redemption story Angie is on the run from a stalker and is at the end of her resources When she sees an ad for a housekeeper in a remote mansion it seems like the perfect solution Unfortunately her first encounter with her potential employer gets the door slammed in her face But she is desperate and persistent and convinces him to hire herJefferson has shut himself off from the world ever since the death of his wife He blames himself for what happened to her He needs someone to get his house into shape for a photo shoot but he doesn't want to interact with anyone His first impression of Angie is that she's too young and cheerful But he sees something in her eyes that tells him she needs help and against his better judgment he hires herI hurt for Angie and all she'd been through Left by her fiance because she was boring then stalked by a coworker all she wants is a place where she can feel safe I loved her strength in taking her safety into her own hands and her determination to get the job The pain she has suffered made her empathetic to Jefferson and his losses and her nurturing personality made her want to make things better for himI loved her first day on the job and their conversation about her grocery list and how he does his shopping It tells a great deal about why he eats the way he does Though he sounds put out that he has to take her with him to shop there's a feeling that maybe he doesn't mind as much as he says Their journey back from town across the lake is interrupted by an intense summer storm When they stop to wait out the storm something changes between them I loved the scene as they eat the melting ice cream and how it emphasizes the electricity growing between them It also lowers their defenses a bit and Angie tells him what has driven her to his door His own innate protectiveness kicks in as he tells her she can stay as long as she needs to A kiss of thanks rocks both their worlds and Jefferson is hit with feelings he doesn't want to haveThere's a bit of avoidance that goes on over the next few days as Angie works on the house and Jefferson hides in his office That doesn't last long as he is slowly drawn out of his shell and begins to live again The scene with the spider was unexpected and great fun Angie also opens up to him and in doing so realizes the truth of her feelings But in confessing those feelings to him Jefferson is reminded of why he had closed himself off His pain and hers as he rejects her love is intense and nothing she says will change his mindAngie also sees that before she can convince him she has to confront her own fears I loved the strength and courage that it took for her to do so and the satisfaction she got from doing it I loved her return to him and how she got there as he was facing some of his own demons The ending was sweet as she returned to him and he finally saw what could beI really liked the epilogue and that it took place several years later Seeing the changes in Jefferson's life and the happiness they share made a very satisfying ending

    What mistletoe? There was none None of this story took place at Christmas until the last chapter How did she track down her stalker? This book needed details a lot it feels like an outline in certain parts Hero is brooding all over the place but his reasons feels uite fake Why couldn’t it have been just an accident and he isn’t over his wife’s death? Simple Not bad but don’t read if you are looking to get into the Christmas spirit

    OK so this was my first romance novel I picked it up because I was sitting vigil by my grandmother There was a stack of these books and this one was one top It wasfine I finished it which isn't true for some books I've started I will say that I was hoping for I thought there would be talk of throbbing members or milk white breasts There was barely any kissing So that was a let down I won't say the book was bad necessarily but it wasn't good either In any case I read it and it's over

    Chore getting through this boring ménage of sub plots I wonder if the author wasn't sure what the plot should be so she threw in a few different ones hoping one would work I set this one aside for my marathon Christmas Books Readathon if you're looking for a Christmas book warning Christmas only comes in the epilogue Two stars is a bonus throw in one star would have been sufficient I've read this author before but I don't remember those books being this bad Donation Bag Book

    I like the story just fine and could sympathize with both Angie and Jefferson I think the only thing I did not like about the story was that when the author would write from his perspective it did not ring true I could tell that a woman had written itI enjoyed the ending however and it was a sweet story of redemption and courage

    The ending felt rushed and it would have been so much better if Angie was in danger
