Today I am reviewing Caro’s Gift by Jean C. Gordon. This is the second book in the Small-Town Christmas Wishes series…
And here is a brief synopsis:
Friendship, memories and wishes are powerful things and in the small town of Snowflake, Colorado they combine to form a memorial to a lost friend. Following her death, Charity Hart left six of her close high school friends, including Caro Price, fifteen hundred dollars each and an assignment to use that money to grant someone else’s secret wish by Christmas.
Temporarily back in Snowflake to help her beloved grandmother recover from an illness, nurse practitioner Caro is on the hunt for a recipient for her secret angel gift. A chance encounter in a specialty store focuses Caro’s interest on a red-headed little girl fascinated by a nativity scene.
Caro’s grandmother has matchmaking on her mind as she pushes Caro and her neighbor, Simon Novak, together. It turns out that Simon coaches the little redhead’s older brother at the high school. With Simon’s help, Caro tries to learn more about the family and it quickly becomes apparent that the widowed mother and her two children are struggling financially. But is there more going on than meets the eye, for Caro sees flashes of fear in their eyes.
What an amazing Christmas story!
Once Caro meets Hope and her family, she knows they are the perfect family to play secret angel to. But she has no idea that danger is just around the corner. Thankfully, she and Simon are spending a lot of time together. He’s the perfect man to have around… and when you read this story, you’ll see why.
I loved how Caro and Simon’s relationship develops — and how they use what they’ve learned from the past to work out their current problems. Don’t miss out on this wonderful story.
… and Merry Christmas!
