Book 3 in Dorothy Love’s Hickory Ridge Romance series.
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 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.

This is the first book I have read in the Hickory Ridge Romance series, and it caught my attention from the start. From the stunning cover and right through to the end, I loved the story of Sophie and her struggle to prove to herself and others that she could make a promising future for herself as the owner/operator of the local newspaper.
Dorothy Love has written a captivating story filled with romance, suspense and believable characters that I could easily relate to. My only regret is that I did not start with book one in the series. There was enough history from the earlier books to make this one enjoyable, but I still want to go back and find out more about the earlier years, specifically about Sophie's life.
The Hickory Ridge series, and especially Every Perfect Gift, would be a great gift choice for a book lover on your Christmas list.
