Callie James loves living in the small town. She is connected not only to the history but the people who live here. It's not about knowing everybody's business but caring about your neighbors. She has just gotten her full time position as the kindergarten teacher and moved out of her mom's house into a cottage on the Garrison's property. It's everything that she could ask for. Until Ford shows up in her bed.
So the complicated character in this story is Ford. He says he doesn't want to be in this small town but yet he returns from across the country to do small things for friends, often only for a weekend. He misses his friends and has no real connections in the job that he is presently doing or people that miss him while he is redoing his grandmother's home. So he hasn't set down roots there. He also wants to make his own way in the world. It takes his friends to show him that he has through his service. And it takes Callie to show him what the future can be in the home town he loves to complain about. He has a construction company waiting for him when he's ready and a home that he's loved since he was a boy. Part of me wants to slap him up side the head. He has everything set up and ready for him. He just needs to see the value of doing it his own way.
Callie has had to work for things. It's been just her and her mother for ever. And her mother throws her for a loop too in this story. She wants to travel and see the world not sure where she'll end up. And Callie has no intention of leaving. She has had a crush on Ford for as long as she's known him. And she still does but it grows into so much more once they spend time together. She tries to guard her heart because everyone who knows Ford knows he always leaves. Her strength in letting him go is a testament to her love for him. She won't ever demand anything of him she knows he won't willingly give.
The complications of the holidays and all the feelings that are brought out at this time of year are so well written by Samantha Chase. She has a knack for holiday books and I never hesitate to dive in head first. I know I will be taken through the good and the bad of what the holidays can be but they are always HEAs.
Ford has no intentions of ever living in Eagle Ridge again. Having grown up there he knows that there is no such thing as privacy. Everyone knows everything about everyone. He's a very private person. He has come back in town temporarily repairing his grandmother's house after a tree fell on it and she is in the hospital from injuries she sustained.
Callie also grew up in Eagle Ridge but has no intentions of leaving. Her mother cleaned Ford's Grandmother's house while she was growing up as well as working a couple other jobs. She's always had a crush on Ford from a distance. She is now a kindergarten teacher living in the little cottage that is on his Grandmother's property.
What I really like about this series is that each book is a continuation of these 7 soldiers lives. We get to follow along as they live their lives. Almost like we're one of the towns people.
Due to their close proximity Callie and Ford form a friendship that builds into something more intense. Ford has made it very clear that there is no future for them and Callie is a strong enough lady that she doesn't attempt to attach any strings.
As Ford friend's like to point out to him 'for someone who never wanted to come back to Eagle Ridge you sure are here a lot'. Which is true, he doesn't miss many gatherings or celebrations.
I really love that we got to revisit with Ford as he grew up learning his construction trade from his grandfather. His grandfather taught him valuables lessons while teaching him a love for the wood.
To me Ford building Callie a dollhouse that his grandfather designed when she was 10 and for her to still have it now was their lives coming full circle. What was meant to be.
What I really love about how Samantha writes is that there always seems to be an extra warmth to her books.
Callie grew up with very little. Her mother worked several jobs so that they could get by. One job was cleaning houses, including Ford's grandparents. Callie had a crush on Ford throughout her teenage years. Now she is teaching kindergarteners & living in the guesthouse at the ranch. While Ford has been back, they've developed a friendship. Can Callie keep her feelings from getting stronger?
I love the connection that was established between Callie & Ford years before with the dollhouse & how it helps reestablish their relationship in some ways. The characters are fully developed & the interactions between the 7 men makes it clear how close their relationships have remained. Those interactions provided a number of hilarious moments in the book. The feelings come across that remind you of a family, not by blood but by experience & similar goals. This was another wonderful book in the series & well worth the money & time to read it.
