Publisher's Summary

Riley Madigan escapes to the sleepy mountain town of Miracle Creek after her relationship with an A-list actor ends badly. At least for a time, she hopes her new job as a high school art teacher will bring her the peace and quiet she is looking for. The last thing on her mind is love.

Mark Rivers was a firefighter until he got trapped in a wildfire and suffered third-degree burns on his face and body. After a year of recovering, Mark is trying to piece his life back together but struggles both emotionally and psychologically. He's been a recluse until he forces himself to attend his niece's school play and sees Riley, the school's art teacher. Immediately, Mark feels a connection to her. Maybe it's the kind way she greets his niece or the way the art she created for the school play is reminiscent of his late mom's artwork. Either way, Mark feels driven to get to know her, but first he'll need to build up the courage to talk to her.

When Mark asks Riley to work on a special nativity, he finds himself falling for her, particularly because Riley doesn't seem bothered by his scars. Is her affection for him real or is she simply overcompensating, pretending he's not different. One thing's for certain, in a small town that views Mark as a fragile hero, it's hard to pursue a relationship without everyone in his business. And although Riley has sincere feelings for Mark, is she really ready to risk her heart?

Broken hearts and lives are mended as the town of Miracle Creek comes together to celebrate a Christmas to remember.

Gahhh this hits you in the feels..

Although Riley can be super frustrating I’m not gonna lie Marc is my new book boyfriend for life. This story really did touch a special part of my heart and though it’s long the story was worth every minute!

Gentle Romance

This isn't prestige literature, but I liked it. I especially appreciated the slow process by which the two characters fell in love. Too many other books get them together romantically too quickly. I also appreciated the absence of graphic sex scenes and language. The narrator was non-distracting.

Sweet wonderful story

This story touched my heart and at times had my emotions involved to tear jerking stage. I would love to see this made to a movie, great writing. Loved Mark and Riley, they both had difficulties they were facing, but they conquered those obstacles. My first time reading anything from this author. Definitely would recommend.

Sweet Story

What I liked: fairly complex characters, a storyline that’s a little different than most others, its wholesome nature.
What I would have liked better: i’m always slightly annoyed at stories where a misunderstanding between people is the plot driver. This one’s not too bad, although there were a couple of times that I thought, ‘Work it out already!’ Nevertheless, it was a fun listen.

I love this book

One of my favourite books. It covers such a sensitive and serious topic as fire and severe burns so well.
I love the humour of the author.I laughed out loud in a few places. The playful banter between Mark and his dad and the way the relationship builds with Mark and Riley is fantastic. The hurt and struggles they both overcome is covered so well.
The Narration is brilliant too. Overall I just love it. it is my feel good go to favourite book.

Struggled to get through this

Bit too "mushy" for me, although I did make it to the end. However, as my normal genre is Crime Fiction, if you are into this genre please ignore my slight negativity.

Cool 😎 little book 📚

I loved this story it was a sweet little hometown romance with a power punch of enjoyment. The storyline was strong the plot excellent and the funny times were catching. I loved the humour and the humour of human beings just being themselves.
Thank you for a classy novel with a big heart of a story.

Wanted something to listen to with my elderly mother. This was an entertaining story, but did have a few cringeworthy moments - daggy but good. LOL!
