Take Me Home for Christmas by Brenda Novak
Christmas is a time for remembering…
Too bad not all memories are pleasant! Everyone in Whiskey Creek remembers Sophia DeBussi as the town's Mean Girl. Especially Ted Dixon, whose love she once scorned.
But Sophia has paid the price for her youthful transgressions. The man she did marry was rich and powerful but abusive. So when he goes missing, she secretly hopes he'll never come back—until she learns that he died running from an FBI probe of his investment firm. Not only has he left Sophia penniless, he's left her to face all the townspeople he cheated.…
Sophia is reduced to looking for any kind of work to pay the bills and support her daughter. With no other options, she becomes housekeeper for none other than Ted, now a successful suspense writer. He can't bring himself to turn his back on her, not at Christmas, but he refuses to get emotionally involved. He learned his lesson the last time.
Or will the season of love and forgiveness give them both another chance at happiness?
I definitely enjoy this book very much since it has so much Christmas spirit. This book contain a lot of emotion throughout the book. The main character face a lot throughout the book since her abusive dead husband cheated several people from their investment. I really felt for her since she has so much going on in her life that she does everything to make everything okay for her daughter in order to survive. It takes a pretty amazing and determined person to overcome all of those obstacles. She’s got my admiration. The second main character is reserved and practical,however, he definitely cares for Sophia. But sometimes in the book that he can be a jerk that I wanted to shake him. But he’s also a know, wealthy novelist! I just adore a happily-ever-after, but not the way it was executed in this story. It was too rush that it left some loose ending.
