Candy Parker hasn't had an easy life. Being a young single mother to a special needs child is always as hard as it it rewarding. Her life is devoted to Dakota with no room for anything else. Especially a fireman who quietly pursues her. After a tragic accident, Candy is forced to reluctantly lean on Gary for support.
This is my confession: While the premise for this book had potential to be an endearing Christmas romance, in my opinion- it failed. Here are some reasons why: Gary, the fireman, was a great character. Supportive, patient, the rock that you would expect him to be. He was more or less the highlight of the book. Candy on the other hand...I didn't like her at all. She was rude, judgmental, snarky and quite frankly...a bitch. More or less right up until the final chapter where just a piece of redemption shines through. As far as 'romance' goes, its more or less non existent.
