  • Excellent

    I love these Sanctuary Island books and I think this is one of the best! The connection between Libby, Owen, and Owen's young daughter Caitlin is magical and brings all the beauty of the holiday season to the forefront of your heart. Yes, Libby is keeping secrets but her reasons are pure and frankly they're a bit funny, but she powers through and in the end finds a life she has always dreamed of. Owen is back home, injured during his last deployment. He is fighting to get to know the daughter he never knew about while at the same time trying to get his body to heal enough to get back to his men. However, the love for his daughter and the feelings he is developing for one tiny reporter may derail his best laid plans. This is one that should be on everyone's holiday must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Sweet Clean Christmas Romance

    Libby and Owen meet on the Ferry to Sanctuary Island. She is not who and what she has led the world to believe in the articles she has been paid for. Owen is an injured Ranger home to meet his daughter for the first time and to take part in equine physical therapy. Libby and Owen are drawn to one another but have obstacles to overcome before they can have their happily ever after. This able to stand alone 4th book in the Sanctuary Island series is a predictable but fun Christmas romance for anyone looking for a clean story with a happy ending. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the copy of this book to read and review.

  • Touching heartwarming read

    This was a sweet and sweet and charming Christmas story. It is a read about forgiveness, reconciliation, acceptance and love. One lie has a rolling effect that gets out of control fast. When you are trying to survive and take care of those you love you do things you might not have done. One harmless lie will affect so many lives. One wounded hero and his daughter needs a wonderful Christmas to bring them together. A grandfather lost his whole family, a woman only wants to help her uncle. Each life will entwine by one woman telling one little lie. Owen and Libby are very attracted from the start but one lie gets in the way of them showing how they truly feel. Libby will have to come clean before everyone's who is on the roller-coaster can find a HAE or everyone might lose not only their loves but their families. All Owen has ever known is being a soldier when he get wounded he must learn to deal with that but with a young daughter he has never seen. With Libby's invite for Christmas he see this as a way not only to get to know his daughter but build a love between a father and his child. First he will have to learn what is important and what being a father truly means. Libby only wants to take care of her uncle to do that she must make lot of money. She hasn't seen her grandfather in years. She must turn to him for help in doing so just maybe she can fix the hurt feelings of a family. The author write a lovely heartwarming story filled with so much sadness. She has filled it will wonderful characters as she gives you a touching read. Each character has lost someone they love and are in need of a Christmas miracle. Can one lie bring two families together to find and fix what is missing in their lives? This is a story filled with sorrow, hurt, pain and humor. I thought it was well told but was missing something for me. I had a hard time getting into this and found my mind wondering. It was a good read and I did enjoy it. The author gives you lots of twists and turns to add to the story. Just a little to much drama for me. She does give a well told story that will warm your heart. It was a lovely Christmas story that many will love and some will like. A 3.5 stars rounding up to 4

  • Disabled War Hero & Queen of Storytelling.

    ** Provided by Publisher in Exchange for an Honest Review ** Judging a Book by it's Cover: Cover depicts a classic winter-y Christmas scene with horse-drawn sleigh, snow-covered cabin in the woods, and surrounding pines wrapped in lights. Synopsis sounds warm and filled with love, healing, and second-chances - a theme that Ms. Everett is well-versed in. Looking Deeper: Third person POV. For the past several years, Libby's been living a lie - or perhaps more like wistful thinking. But the daydreams and make-believe life is shattered when her boss commits her to a task that can expose her to all as a fraud. Given an ultimatum, present the perfect life she always writes about or lose your job and risk prison, how is she going to pull this off? Owen's broken, in more ways than one, and all he wants is to find his way home to his daughter and try to make her holidays something truly memorable and special, but will be able to connect to a child that knows he only plans on leaving her again? Ms. Everett never fails to infuse family values with hope and heart-warming second chances. The Hero and heroine in this story are both very well-written. There are a handful of secondary characters present or mentioned from previous installments of this series, and other tied-in series', however, this story can and does stand strongly on it's own. There are also a few new characters introduced into the mix, each providing another layer or filler to the plot. The chemistry between Libby and Owen is fantastic, even (or, maybe, especially) when Owen thought Libby was married to Nash - which provided a few smiles and giggles along the way. The interaction between the characters is authentic and the dialogue felt spot-on. There were several conflicts along the way, especially given the premise of the plot, that were handled in the best way they were able. The lies and secrets were getting a little tedious and thick however, seems everyone had something to hide, or at least omit. The plot is extremely well-written with an easy flow with characters that you feel like you truly are getting to know on a personal level. There were only a few small spots that I'd say predictability made itself present (the Christmas Present in the epilogue, for one). The conclusion felt solid and sturdy with an epilogue that covered all the key elements. Overall, HOME FOR CHRISTMAS was an endearing Holiday read. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heat Level: 3 [PG-13] ~ Score: 4.2 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Libby stopped believing a long time ago.

    Libby is a woman who stopped believing in happily ever after a long time ago. So she creates her own. Full of half-truths and fantasies. Owen has experienced the horror and uncertainties of war. Changed by it all he has a better appreciation for life and the loved ones he left behind. His new lease on life is put to the test by the daughter he wants to get to know and the reporter that enters his life. Home for Christmas by Lily Everett is a precious story that uplifts the spirit and warms the heart. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
