A Hickory Ridge Romance ~ Book Three
Thomas Nelson / 2012
About the book:
Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.
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.
Every Perfect Gift was a great addition to the Hickory Ridge series! I'm a little sad that this is the final book, but except for wishing some things had ended differently, it was a good conclusion.
I loved both of the main characters (Ethan and Sophie) and how previous characters (including Ada and Carrie) appeared in Every Perfect Gift - it was great to get updates on their lives.
The story was very good and I liked it from the beginning on! There were a couple surprises and some romance - overall a great read that I really enjoyed! If you like historical romances, then I think you'd like Every Perfect Gift. While I don't think it's entirely necessary to read Beyond All Measure and Beauty for Ashes first, you'd probably want to because then you'd know the history of Hickory Ridge, Tennessee. :)
*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
