If you want a book that will keep you entertained from start to finish and leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, then Low Country Christmas by Lee Tobin McClain is the book for you. It’s book three in her Safe Haven series and tells the story of the final O’Dwyer brother, Cash. I haven’t read the previous books in the series, Low Country Hero and Low Country Dreams, but I plan to rectify that mistake.
Big city girl, Holly Gibson, travels to the small town of Safe Haven in search of her one-year-old niece’s father, Cash O’Dwyer. Holly is totally overwhelmed by the welcome and attention that she and little Penny receive from Cash and his family and most of the residents of the town. Now things are really complicated because she never expected to fall for Penny’s father.
Cash O’Dwyer is surprised to find that he really is the father of Holly’s niece, Penny. He’s a man of means, so women have tried to con him in the past. He had a complicated upbringing so he’s not sure if he’ll be a good father. Now he’s made a complicated situation worse by falling for Penny’s aunt.
Though this is the first book I’ve read in the Safe Haven series, I have read several of Ms. McClain’s other books and expected a great reading experience, and she did not disappoint me here. The characters are well-developed and with few exceptions, these are people you want to know. The plot and pace are engaging. The small town of Safe Haven is the perfect backdrop for the overall effect. The fact that the story takes place during the Christmas season only adds to the joy and peace invoked in the reader. This is a 5 star read and I recommend it to all readers of romance.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
