Hunter Wood wants to be respected. A talented cook, he’s ventured out on his own, opening a breakfast and lunch diner in Charity, Montana. He’s got a lot to prove—mostly to himself—and more than a few people to convince he’s a changed man.
Tracy Blevin is a registered nurse and pie baker extraordinaire, who is drawn to a most unlikely man, Hunter Wood. A nurturer by profession, she likes to feel needed, but the only thing Hunter needs her for is her pies. Their friendship has changed over the last six months as business partners. The more time Hunter spends with Tracy, the more he finds things to like about her. She’s smart, organized, and…those bright green eyes and delicate mouth are really starting to get to him. Maybe it’s time to move beyond just partnership…
When a Montana winter car crash leaves a baby an orphan, Godfather Hunter, lives up to his promise, taking in the ten-month old. With the season of miracles upon them, Hunter can no longer deny his strong attraction towards Tracy. Is her life-long wish for her own family finally being answered this Christmas?
This was a unique Christmas story.
Hunter is a Native American who suddenly finds himself with his baby godson. The aspects of his Native heritage were interesting. Hunter is close to his grandmother, who is called Knows Much. That’s the perfect name for a wise grandmother! I would have liked to see more of Hunter’s family. I think they would have made for some fun plot twists.
Hunter runs into problems with being his godson’s guardian because he isn’t 100% Native. The baby’s full Native grandparents think they have more of a claim on the baby, who is also fully Native. Hunter has to find a creative way for him to be able to keep the baby.
The Christmas theme was a nice background to the story. It emphasizes the family image that Tracy is looking for, and the new family of Hunter and Adam. The Christmas season really brings people together, like Hunter and Tracy.
This is a really fast read. It’s great to read over the holidays!
