OK, I indulge in a romance novel once in a while. They are usually way too predictable. This one surprised me in a good way.

The characters are believable and likeable. The situation is fraught with emotion. We, the readers, are allowed to evaluate the action and make up our own minds.

Joy Candellaro's life fell apart after finding her sister in bed with her husband. Since her subsequent divorce, she has decided that she should do some traveling that she has always dreamed about. But when her plane crashes on the way to her destination, Joy walks away from the crash and decides to start her life over. Joy finds a small fishing resort where she rents a room. The resort is owned by Daniel O'Shea and his young son, Bobby. Bobby's mother died recently. The boy is lonely and quickly bonds with Joy.

This is a quick Christmas read. I had a hard time with Joy's sister and ex-husband. I would have walked away from them too if I was in that situation. This story was entertaining and liked the twist at the end. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

This was a great short read! I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I found myself laughing and crying with the story and it was so easy to imagine it all. This is the first Kristin Hannah book I have read and I will be looking for more.
