Every Perfect Gift

Author: Dorothy Love
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
December 2012
ISBN: 978-1595549020
Genre: Historical romance

Sophie Caldwell owns and operates The Gazette, an odd job for a woman to try and do alone in the late 1800’s. She’s an orphan, but managed to get education in excess of what the orphanage provided, and so she is schooled as a young lady of means. However, she still feels inadequate due to her orphan status.

Ethan Heyward had an idyllic childhood that was shattered by a tragedy. Now he’s struggling to open an upper class resort. He will need the newspaper on his side if he is to succeed, but he is shocked by a beautiful female reporter showing up for a tour….one who also claims to own the paper.

Things change quickly between them as they are forced together by a series of events, but the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.

EVERY PERFECT GIFT does start out slowly, but by the third chapter things begin to pick up. It does have several slow spots after that though. I cared for Ethan, he was a very caring individual, even when he was stressed or busy.

Sophie is a very strong individual, the type of woman I am not. She isn’t afraid to take the bull by the horn and go where no woman has every gone before, and I had to admire her courage.   

If you enjoy historical romances about strong heroines and sweethearts of men, then you’ll want to check out EVERY PERFECT GIFT. The book is very well written and a sweet romance.

EVERY PERFECT GIFT is the last of the 'Hickory Ridge Romance' series. Readers will want to read the first two books in the series first as this book alludes back. The first two books are Beyond All Measure and Beauty for Ashes. $15.99. 320 pages. 3.5 stars.

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.
