Goodreads:  Hearts are lighter and wishes burn a little brighter at Christmas…

Elizabeth Hamilton has been lost. Trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents, she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life. And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger and the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.

But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined. As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?

Kritters Thoughts:  Elizabeth Hamilton left her family years ago and through an interesting turn of events has stayed away.  With rumors swirling her husband Luke must find her and get her to clear the air, so him and the kids can continue the life they built.  

I am enjoying this series, each book builds on the previous and the characters are just spot on.  I love that each book in the series has a connection to the previous with characters waltzing in and out of the storylines, but each book has a different main character.  

For me this book felt a little too dramatic and made me roll my eyes once or twice at the storyline.  The plot just seemed a little too soap operay in parts and of course it is fiction, but a few moments just seemed a little extra!  I tend to like my romance to have a bit of drama, but not to the soap opera level.  

I would say this is a good read if you have been reading the series and it is nice to see there character's journey, but you may have to suspend disbelief just a bit in this one.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
