About the Book:
Holly Fisher opens her door one day and finds her estranged sister Hannah standing there with a glassy look and her nine-month old baby on her hip. Before Holly knows what is happening, Hannah has left her baby with Holly and disappeared. Three months later, fresh out of rehab for addiction to painkillers, Hannah shows up sober, contrite, and wanting her son back. But Holly is in love with the baby and not willing to give him up to the mother who abandoned him. 

Into the middle of this extraordinary conflict between two sisters walks a lonesome cowboy, Wyatt Clark (Summer of Two Wishes) who knows a thing or two about childcare and fractured families. He’s had his own troubles and has stayed away from women the last couple of years, but he can’t resist Holly and the baby. But when Holly is delivered a devastating blow and returns the baby to his mother, Holly is too distraught to continue her relationship with Wyatt. It will take an extraordinary turn from Hannah to bring Holly and Wyatt together so that they both may find the happiness that has eluded them.

My Review:
Well, this wasn’t my favorite novel, but, all in all, it was really a decent read. I think my bit of unhappiness with this novel, comes from the fact that it is a sequel and I failed to read the first one. That being said, Julia London IS a talented author and one who can really pull her readers into the novel.

On more than one occasion, I felt as if it was me falling for hunky cowboy Wyatt Clark. I felt like it was me who wanted to mend his broken heart and fall in love with him. The problem I had with Holly was, she was a songwriter. Me….NO WAY. So it was really hard to feel like Holly when she was in song writing mode. But, when Wyatt entered the picture, oh man. All I wanted to do was hug him and tell him it was okay! He was such a wonderfully created character! He really added the depth to this story.

I do give this book recommendation with 4 stars. The characters are blended, the plot line is awesome, there’s just the right amount of smiling humor, and the romance is sweet. I will, however, recommend to you, unlike what I did, that you read the first book, Summer of Two Wishes. I do have Summer of Two Wishes here to be read, and had I realized before hand on reading Light At Winter’s End that it was the first book, I would have read it first.

You can purchase your copy here.
