Every Perfect Gift by Dorothy Love

Every Perfect Gift's author Dorothy Love did a wonderful job working in characters from the two previous novels while telling us Ethan and Sophie's story. Sophie spent her entire life trying to find somewhere that she really belonged and an identity that was her own. Her love for newspapers led her back to Hickory Ridge where she began running the Gazette. Her first issue would feature an interview with one of the partners behind the new resort being built on the mountain. Ethan wasn't at all what she expected and she wasn't what he expected either since he was expecting a male. Despite being immediately attracted to each other both Sophie and Ethan had their reservations about the other. An unexpected visit from someone in Ethan's past  does little to help the situation and Sophie's hesitation to reveal her past to Ethan nearly stops their romance before it even begins. I enjoyed every detail of this beautifully written story and I highly recommend reading this novel!


About Every Perfect Gift: 

Book 3 in Dorothy Love's Hickory Ridge Romance series.
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.
