Christmas is a time for remembering…

Too bad not all memories are pleasant! Everyone in Whiskey Creek remembers Sophia DeBussi as the town's Mean Girl. Especially Ted Dixon, whose love she once scorned.

But Sophia has paid the price for her youthful transgressions. The man she did marry was rich and powerful but abusive. So when he goes missing, she secretly hopes he'll never come back—until she learns that he died running from an FBI probe of his investment firm. Not only has he left Sophia penniless, he's left her to face all the townspeople he cheated.…

Sophia is reduced to looking for any kind of work to pay the bills and support her daughter. With no other options, she becomes housekeeper for none other than Ted, now a successful suspense writer. He can't bring himself to turn his back on her, not at Christmas, but he refuses to get emotionally involved. He learned his lesson the last time.

Or will the season of love and forgiveness give them both another chance at happiness?

I have found my new favorite series.  Take Me Home For Christmas is the first book of Brenda Novak’s I have read and while it is part of a series, I didn’t feel lost because I hadn’t read the others in the series. 

Sophia has been through hell and is still riding out the flames of her deceased husbands evil deeds.  People who she thought were friends have turned on her and due to her husband’s isolating her the past 14 years; she has no one to turn to, not even family. 

Ted Dixon, successful writer and bitter ex-boyfriend of Sophia’s has a heart of gold, even though he’s been holding a grudge against Sophia for dumping him for a very long time he simply is too good of a person to sit back and see her and her daughter try to surf the flames of hell. 

Sophia’s only hope is the life vest Ted has offered, but their past makes them keep each other at arm’s length but as time moves on things change but can they get past the transgressions of their past and have the love that has waited for them all these years?
