SUMMARY Christmas in Good Hope Good Hope #1

Ami and Beck would rather forget the past but this Christmas of love is one to remember Amaryllis “Ami” Bloom’s cheerful smile greets everyone in Good Hope Wisconsin But her merry facade hides a dark secret she won’t ever forget Still she throws herself into celebrating Christm. This was very very by the numbers and not so much in a good way I was very disappointed that Ami was so very weak She knows her secret is going to blow up and determines to tell Beck a couple of times only to wimp out so that the reveal can come in public by someone who wants to hurt her So sadly formulaic And the thing with her dad Why wouldn t you speak up if the father you love is involved with a mean and spiteful woman How does it make sense not to tell him hey dad this woman continually degrades me and calls me out and actively seeks opportunities to belittle and undermine me Could you maybe not ask me to be nice to her any How bad is your relationship with your father that he wouldn t give you the benefit of the doubt on something like that He s supposedly a great father and yet his daughter doesn t trust him to believe her about something important to herSo I didn t like Ami very well and Beck didn t really compensate much either He s okay I guess but he s not outstanding in any way Anyway I don t want to take too much away from the story because Kirk puts the story together competently enough So call it 2 stars that I m rounding up because it fit the holiday theme and was at least consistent with itETA A note about Audible I forgot to mention in my original review but at least part of my problem with this was the audio by Amy McFadden Her voice for Beck who was supposed to have a marked Southern accent was atrocious Time and again the narration said something like in his soft Southern drawl only to have McFadden give a barely there hint of the South Worse Beck comes from a well to do Southern family the type that regularly hires decorators but the subtle hint of accent McFadden inserts is Appalachian backwoods than it is Southern gentry that would be appropriate This may account for some of my apathy for him because I normally love a Southern accent in a protagonist and expecting one and not receiving it was a disconnect that grated throughoutA note about SteamyThere s some explicit sex but not much It s on the low side of my steam tolerance but I skimmed it anyway

Of the small town’s holiday traditions when she asks for help with the Twelve Nights celebrations And Ami has a hard time resisting Beck’s soft Southern drawl and gentle eyes Will a Christmas miracle give them a second chance at love and the hope to heal both of their hearts for go. It put me in the Christmas spirit so what the heck I m giving it 4 stars It s a simple read I read it in one sitting with a few interruptions but it s so sweet What can I say I guess I m a sap or a sucker for small town Christmas romance stories Even though it was somewhat predictable it was a nice little escape Perfect for reading by a fire with some hot chocolate and a cat purring in your lap and NO that s not my life I don t have a fireplace It was my free book for November from Kindle and now I think I ll have to buy the rest of the books in the series

    Christmas in Good Hope by award winning romance author Cindy Kirk is Book #1 in the new Good Hope series and if it’s any indication this is going to be a series every bit as good as a few other popular town centric heartwarming series I’ve read I always gravitate toward this kind of series during the holid
