A GIFT FOR ALL SEASONS
A GIFT FOR ALL SEASONS (4.5) by Karen Templeton: Patrick Shaughnessy is home from the war, but he’s left with injuries both evident and invisible, especially after his wife leaves him and their daughter Lili. April Ross has realized her dream of turning her grandmother’s home into an inn, thanks to her late husband’s estate. Now, a hunky yet scarred landscaper is making her feel things she never has before. Both have secrets that can destroy their future, but that’s only if they aren’t brave enough to believe in a little holiday magic. With its wounded warrior hero, optimistic heroine, witty narrative and touchingly emotional love scenes, Templeton’s tale is a gift indeed.
