I received a copy of Every Perfect Gift by Dorothy Love from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not
sharing could tear them apart.
Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee after years away.
Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home,
and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to
resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.
Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent
years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built
a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists
from all over the country.
When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her
intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She's equally intrigued with him but
fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she
summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently
catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.
I don't normally pick books written about the 1800s but am glad I did this time. This is a good book that was easy to follow. I did have to look up a few words. I think it's interesting how a new resort can bring a dying town back to life and how women struggled to do things we take for granted now.
