Home for Christmas (Sanctuary Island)

Home for Christmas (Sanctuary Island) by Lily Everett

Celebrate Christmas on Sanctuary Island, where the love light gleams. There will be snow and mistletoe...and two lonely hearts yearning for love, family, and above all, home.
Magazine columnist Libby Leeds has made a name for herself sharing heartwarming stories from her perfect life on Sanctuary Island. There's just one minor detail she's left out: she hasn't set foot on the island since her childhood. Orphaned and heartbroken, she departed years ago and never looked back-except in her fictional columns. Now a wounded war hero is returning to Sanctuary Island, and Libby's editor insists she cover the story by taking the long road back...
Army Ranger Owen Shepard is a tall, handsome single father, and now a media sensation. He wants to reconnect with his daughter, Caitlin, and make up for lost time by giving her a Christmas to remember. When "America's Favorite Homemaker" Libby Leeds offers her help, he jumps at the chance. But the sweet, reclusive writer is more intriguing, and more tempting, than Owen could have imagined. Soon, Owen and Caitlin are spending their holiday with Libby, decorating trees, making gingerbread houses, and warming up by the fire. It's the closest Libby has come to love and family since she was a child-but until she and Owen admit what is in their hearts, the home they are creating together will be only in their dreams.

This review is from: Home for Christmas (Sanctuary Island) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
This was an ok read. Sure, it's a feel good holiday romance. But, my problem with it is, it's slow. It drags on, and is just too hard for me to get into. It took me so long to read, I had to keep setting it aside. There are a lot of great moments, romantic, flowery.
"I'm fine. I heal fast. And believe me, if you were trying to finish me off, you'd have to come at me with something more dangerous than a rolling suitcase."
The characters were witty and likable. I think maybe if the story weren't so bogged down with the amount of characters and time spent on each, that it would have been a more enjoyable romance for me. But, I can see how it appeals to everyone else. It's not a bad book. I just enjoy a more faster paced or plot lined story.
