Genres: Contemporary Romance
Grace Flaherty had given up hope of ever seeing her husband again. After all, it'd been over a year since he went missing in combat. So when he strides through the door of her bakery in downtown Christmas one sunny afternoon, she can hardly believe her eyes. But her happily-ever-after is going to take some effort - because Jack has no memory of his family.
All Jack Flaherty remembers about Christmas is that he couldn't wait to leave town. Now he's a local hero with a wife and son he doesn't know. Even as he struggles to rekindle the romance with his wife, he knows in his heart what he wants: a second chance at love.
Christmas in July was a wonderful read. Grace was so sweet despite her broken heart and I’m glad she was trying to move on, if not for herself, but for her son, little Jack. I could only imagine what she was feeling and was so happy that her MIA husband, Jack, returned home, yet was extremely disappointed with the main result of his memory loss (cue: throwing the Paperwhite across the bed). How awful that must have been for Grace! The community of Christmas, Colorado was hit and miss with me throughout the story, most likely because I was rooting for Grace and Jack and they didn’t always seem to be in favor. In my normal fashion of no spoilers, I will end this with a note that I did not throw the Paperwhite again, but there were a few times where I did yell at it.
Thank you Debbie and Grand Central – Forever for such an amazing story!!! I have the Christmas in July paperback in my wish list as well as The Trouble With Christmas! Definitely a series to have on the shelf!
