Reading a book is like escaping reality however this story makes you remember how important it is to live life and no matter what happened in the past ....to move on. Cass has seen so much in her fifty something years that she feels life is a drag. She was married to her high school sweetheart and enjoyed life, till her husband passed followed by her mother. She has spent her life being both wife daughter and mother and now wants something for herself. After deciding that living with her daughters was not the answer for either her or them she finds a job with a writer. Eli used to be a pastor but now spends his time writing. She find the job rewarding as she for once only has to worry about herself, until she starts to have feeling for Eli. Both find out that there is always a second chance no matter how much we think there is no where to go there is always a new beginning and these two find that second chance. Its so lovely when he says he hopes she never has to be a caregiver to him but knows she will if she must, as he would think its a privilege to be one for her if needed. Cass makes you sigh when she dances with Eli to "wonderful tonight" and says " I fell in love with two completely different men while dancing in two different kitchens to the same song. Lovely story don't miss it.
I read Liz Flaherty's The Gingerbread Heart in the Harlequin Heartwarming Christmas anthology. As always her characters came alive for me through the pages, and I rooted for Cass from the first page. Cass is exactly the right mix of feisty and feminine. Liz's book is paired with Rula Sinara's and Patricia Bradley's and all three center on a family of women coming together and falling in love during the holidays. You'll love how these women find and embrace their happily ever after.Liz Flaherty's books are rich in character and setting, and leave you with the feeling you've traveled with the characters on the pages. Give this one a try!
This is a wonderful collection of stories that all revolve around the magical town of Christmas Town, Maine. I particularly enjoyed the first one written by Liz Flaherty, The Gingerbread Heart. I recommend it to any reader who wants to enjoy an afternoon reading not just a romance but a love story. The main character, Cassandra Logan is a woman who understands how to love. That it takes more than hormones to make a life with someone. It was a lovely, generous read, that made me feel good for days after putting the book down. I wish these characters were real and living down the street from me! Thank Liz, for such a unique and loving story. Oh, and Merry Christmas!
I read all three books in The Gingerbread Men anthology. They are a delightful group of stories set in Christmas Town, Maine. The mother, along with the two daughters find romance in a setting that warms your heart just in time for the holiday season. I loved the common themes that ran through each story--Gingerbread Cookies, the small town atmosphere, and love having a second chance.
This was a sweet Christmas story that made me want to wrap up in a blanket and drink hot chocolate. It was a romance about a middle age couple who were both widowed. I really enjoyed it because it was about finding love as mature adults. You will too!
The Gingerbread Heart by Liz Flaherty ~ Loved it! What do you do after your life feels over? Raised your kids, took care of your husband and then mother while they were in their last stretch. What is there to come back to? Cass finds this struggle, she doesn't want to interfere in her grown kids lives. What does that leave for her? Ester suggests a job! And what a job it is. It's just what she needed. Life does go on. The Gingerbread Pony by Patricia Bradley ~ It's funny how kids can bring people together. Mark and Lizzy are just trying to get their life sorted after finding each other. Little did Mark know that Amy, his high school sweetheart was the key to helping them bond. The Gingerbird House by Rula Sinara ~ What a sweet story about loss and love. Finding your way back home. To a home you didn't even think was there.
