When Eli Campbell is discharged after an accident ends his career in the Army, he isn’t sure what kind of homecoming to expect. Shoot, he’s not even sure what kind of homecoming he deserves. He did a lot of stupid things as a teenager, and he made a lot of rash decisions that hurt several people. Regardless, he’s determined to set things right with his family, particularly his brother Noah. So as dismayed as he is to be facing life with the unforeseen challenges related to his accident, he’s also grateful to have a second chance. A chance to make amends for all the damage he’s done. To prove to his family and to himself that he’s a better person, a good man. When he meets Haley Buchanan, his physical therapist, he’s turned head-over-heels. With a heart-stopping smile, a kind nature that’s like a balm for his soul, and enough sass and backbone to enchant him, she represents another example of a second chance he’d never thought to have—a second chance at love. Haley wasn’t expecting anyone like Eli to come along, particularly not as one of her patients. She’s not prepared for the longing and need he stirs up inside her, as her life is nothing approaching simple and uncomplicated at the moment. With the weight of her elderly, invalid grandfather’s care resting on her shoulders alone, she barely has room to breathe, much less fall in love. Once the professional complications are out of the way, though, she finds herself drawn more and more to Eli, coming to rely on his stability and warmth in a way that she’d never expected.
Review : Snapdragon Way (A Firefly Hollow Novel ) by T.L. Haddix is a sweet romance which fills in every clichee possibly mentioned in a book. Something which at
some points was nice to observe, but at other points was just too much. Itś one of these books you choose to just curl up on your couch while having a cup of tea and some sweets. Something you read to relax. Itś well written -something which is very important as the story can be very good, but if the writing-style doesn´t work out, it´s difficult to follow the plot. The only thing I have to critisize is that at some points of the story-line, it was a bit too detailled which made reading “more difficult”. All in all a nice book to relax with a plot and characters you definetly can enjoy. The story was intriguing enough for me to want to know what will happen next, but for example the paranormal elements are ,in my opinion, not deeply enough explained.
P.S.: It can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend you to read the books in order of the series.
