Home For Christmas by Lily Everett (Sanctuary Island #4)


Celebrate Christmas on Sanctuary Island, where the love light gleams. There will be snow and mistletoe...and two lonely hearts yearning for love, family, and above all, home.
Magazine columnist Libby Leeds has made a name for herself sharing heartwarming stories from her perfect life on Sanctuary Island. There's just one minor detail she's left out: she hasn't set foot on the island since her childhood. Orphaned and heartbroken, she departed years ago and never looked back-except in her fictional columns. Now a wounded war hero is returning to Sanctuary Island, and Libby's editor insists she cover the story by taking the long road back...
Army Ranger Owen Shepard is a tall, handsome single father, and now a media sensation. He wants to reconnect with his daughter, Caitlin, and make up for lost time by giving her a Christmas to remember. When "America's Favorite Homemaker" Libby Leeds offers her help, he jumps at the chance. But the sweet, reclusive writer is more intriguing, and more tempting, than Owen could have imagined. Soon, Owen and Caitlin are spending their holiday with Libby, decorating trees, making gingerbread houses, and warming up by the fire. It's the closest Libby has come to love and family since she was a child-but until she and Owen admit what is in their hearts, the home they are creating together will be only in their dreams.
"Sanctuary Island will live in your heart long after the book is closed."
-Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author

My review:  Home For Christmas by Lily Everett  (Sanctuary Island #4)


I have read a couple of Sanctuary Island novels.  I really like it.  Some twists I saw coming and some I did not see.  I really like the plot, characters the main ones and some of the secondary ones too.

The setting is Sanctuary Island, VA. It is Christmas time.

Libby Leeds writes a magazine column about her home, family, pets on Sanctuary Island.  It is all a lie.  She has not been back since she was young.  Now her boss wants to have her host Owen Shepard and his daughter and give them a Christmas or else she will be fired and sued.

 Army Ranger Owen Shepard was wounded in the war.  We met his daughter Caitlin in Heartbreak Cove.  Owen has not met her yet.  He wants to recover and give her the best Christmas.  He is single.

I liked reading about Libby making her dreams a reality.  She has found family she did not know she had.  She lied for a good reason but now she keeps getting deeper in trouble all the time.  She even has a pretend husband.  But she likes Owen.

Owen keeps walking into  and overhearing the wrong thing out of context or only partial of the discussion so he adds things up wrong.

I liked the Christmas village and makes me want to go and see it.

I would like to read more books in the Sanctuary Island series.  Especially the first two books that I have missed.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and St. Martin's Press.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of Home For Christmas.
