Every Perfect Gift by Dorothy Love

About the Book
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.

My Thoughts
 After reading Beauty For Ashes I knew that I wanted to read more of this author's books so I jumped at the chance to review Every Perfect Gift. When I read BFA it wasn't till part way through that I realized it was the second book of a series but there weren't too many references to book one and I made it through. Unfortunately for me this book was a lot more connected to the first one and I was a little lost sometimes. I was however able to piece most of it together but I highly recommend reading them in order! Now that I explained all that, on to the actual review!
I did really enjoy this book-it wasn't show-stoppingly awesome but good nonetheless. Honestly I kinda read this book at a bad time. I just finished a couple books that I absolutely loved so pretty much anything else paled in comparison. I'm racking my brain trying to come up with things to say but I can't seem to come up with any thoughts either way. It was one of those books that lands perfectly in the middle, nothing wrong but nothing amazing either. There were a few times that it got a little Hallmark-ish but even that wasn't too bad and was easy to overlook. I do like how, since the series is set in a small town, you get to visit many of the characters throughout all of the books. All in all I really enjoyed the two books I've read in this series and I'm going to try to read Book 1 in the near future!
 I received this book free from the publisher through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review!
