The last person Maddy Kelly expects to show up at her mountain cabin for the holidays is her soon-to-be ex-husband, who was always too busy to enjoy their hideaway. Following doctor’s orders to reduce stress, Michael arrives at their remote cabin, unannounced and unexpected, in the dead of night, during a snow storm. Which is why Maddy greets him with a fire poker to the head, rendering him unconscious, and with a case of temporary amnesia. As his memory returns, Michael realizes how much he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get her back, even if it means pretending to still have amnesia.
Add to the mix Michael’s mischievous 13-year-old nephew, who has stowed away in Michael’s car, and Maddy’s two dachshunds who take an instant disliking to Michael, and you have a laugh-out-loud recipe for a romantic romp.
This book both vibrated the vocal cords with laughter and tightened them with sorrow. In the end though, we should all give a shout out to one brilliant Doctor’s meddling.
This book was fantastic. It was funny when the reader needed. It was deep and painful in all the right places. It was the perfect romantic comedy.
This book had the kind of characters that we all love. The meddling family Doctor who is quirky and caring. The high achieving lawyer with a work comes first mindset and last but not least….the wife who leaves him.
I think what spoke to me the most was the real part of this book. In a marriage, it’s easy to feel secure and lose sight of keeping your spouse happy. It’s like we realize that now we have someone, we don’t have to worry about that end of life so we check it off our to-do list and move on. We often forget that relationships are not static. They are organic and need attention indefinitely. If we don’t, very serious misunderstandings and neglect can result.
I love everything about this story. I love how everything came together for one big beautiful happy ending.
It couldn’t of come at a better time in my life. I needed this book. I needed the laughs and I needed the heart tugging. Thank you Ms. Hughes for delivering just what I needed.
5 Star Book!
