Hannah Dorchester wanted to take in her niece and nephew 7 months ago after the death of their parents, but the court decided that they would stay in Texas with their great aunt. But now after a hip injury, the great aunt agrees that it's time for the children to go and live with Hannah in Aspen Creek, Wisconsin.
Hannah does all she can to help Molly and Cole feel welcome, she understands that they are still grieving and are not happy about moving. But she isn't prepared when their Uncle Ethan, who is also her ex-fiance, shows up to claim custody of his late brother's children.
Will Hannah and Ethan be able to make amends and perhaps find a second chance at love?
Hannah is a PA, with a heart for animals. There is no animal shelter in Aspen Creek so she and several others keep animals in their homes. She tries her best to always be kind and civil to Ethan, even though he left her to chase a career far from her.
Ethan is back stateside and recovering from injuries that he received when a bomb exploded taking his arm. But the wounds that he needs to recover from the most, are the ones on the inside.
As Ethan and Hannah spend times together with the children they begin to see how good it would be for the children to have both their Uncle and Aunt in their lives.
This is a fast paced read, with a quick, hook and a back story that heaps on the tension from the start. I liked that there was a lot going on and great interaction between Hannah and Ethan, and that they worked together to make Molly and Cole's first Christmas without their parents a good one. A wonderful read from beginning to end.
