Dr. Tom Crawford isn’t feeling the spirit of the season when he arrives in Last Chance. Far from friends and family, he’s the odd man out in this town of gossiping, tight-knit Southerners-until he meets a sweetly sexy single mom who makes him feel welcome. Suddenly the handsome doctor is thinking he’s finally found a place to call home.
Local florist Teri Summers has her hands full of mistletoe in preparation for the holiday, yet finding someone to kiss is her last priority. But when the gorgeous new doctor makes a connection with her special needs son, Aiden, Teri finds herself wondering if she’s finally found happiness in this season of joy. For Teri and Tom, Last Chance may be their best chance at love . . .
Tom is so sweet and caring – I absolutely love his patience and understanding with Aiden and Teri. He’s got some personal experience, which helps so much with dealing with Aiden’s Asperger’s Syndrome. Poor Teri is a little overwhelmed and convinced that no one is going to take on everything that her life entails … lucky for her, Tom is made of stronger stuff.
I also really love that Ramsay gives us a peek into what goes on in Aiden’s head. It adds so much to the story to be able to understand where he’s coming from and why he reacts the way he does.
A Midnight Clear is a fantastic, feel good holiday read. It’s short, which makes it perfect for a little break from all the Christmas madness 🙂
