Bess and Daniel have history and it keeps getting in the
way of the future in this fun and sweet book, A SAVANNAH CHRISTMAS WISH, the
second set in the Fitzgerald B&B.
I'm a bit of a sucker for B&B/hotel stories, which
probably has a lot to do with my serious obsession with
Gilmore Girls and Lorelai's quest to open the
Dragonfly. I'm fascinated by the ins and outs of running
a truly wonderful guest home, and in A SAVANNAH CHRISTMAS
WISH, I also got to learn about landscaping and flowers
and those things that make the whole package come
Daniel, bless him, is in the midst of taking over his
dad's construction business and his OCD-self is working
overtime to make that happen. His reaction to unexpected
chaos is to buckle down and work more while getting
himself as far away from the chaos as he can. Sadly for
him, he classes our heroine Bess as 'chaos', especially
when he feels his attraction to her/need for her is out
While Bess is a more go-with-the-flow lady, she is tired
of getting yo-yo yanked all over
the place in favor of Daniel's need for control.
As you can imagine, however, they sort their issues. We
get a bit of time to visit with Abby and Grey, the couple from SOUTHERN
COMFORTS, the first
book, while also spending time with the
other folks who round out this world and who will have
their own books soon, I'd guess. I appreciate this kind
of balance, personally. It always makes the books feel
more 'real' when the characters interact with people
Overall, I'd definitely recommend A SAVANNAH CHRISTMAS WISH for anyone looking
for a sweet story of second chances, but who doesn't mind
dealing with the hero's character flaws causing obstacles
repeatedly. I wanted to throttle him a few times, that's
for sure, but he comes around in the endn and he and Bess
will surely live happily ever after.
A relationship in need of renovation
Bess Fitzgerald is thrilled to be overseeing the expansion
of her family's B and B. Working with Daniel Forester, not
so much. After one wild night, they agreed to stay out of
each other's lives. The attraction still sizzles between
them now, but Daniel's need to be in control and Bess's
impulsive nature continually drive them apart.
Keeping their relationship professional is harder than Bess
anticipated. And it's not long before they give in to
temptation. Suddenly it's clear Daniel needs her in a way
she never thought possible. This may be the year Bess
finally gets her Christmas wish!
