Sweet story. Ami owns a bakery next to the cafe that was recently bought by Beck Cross. Ami quickly befriended Beck and they have a daily ritual of morning coffee together. As part of her 'initiation' into the ladies auxiliary, Ami is tasked with talking Beck into opening his house up for the annual Christmas tour...something in which the previous owner participated. Ami is an all-around do-gooder. She collects donations for various charitable groups, delivers food baskets, etc....and she's slowly breaking through the ice around Beck's heart. Beck moved to the town when after a devastating personal tragedy and not looking for romance...but there's just something about Ami. We see the relationship grow into move than friends and start feeling happy but, will this truly last? Each has a secret that they haven't shared. We do get an HEA...yay!
I've enjoyed this narrator reading other stories but here she seemed flat and uninteresting. I didn't mind how she did the main character but the others just lacked any pizazz. Several sounded the same.
The writing was similar. Even though most of the characters were several years past college and were the business people and upstanding citizens of the town, they seemed extremely immature. Also the whole premise of a furnace not working in a business that far north and NOT affecting business seemed far-fetched. Plus it was hardly mentioned after the opening chapters. Finally, the one sex scene was far more graphic than what I am used to and really didn't contribute to the story. Doesn't anyone use window shades any more?
