    35 StarsFirst let me ramble on a bit before I start my review The book cover in Goodreads for Some Kind of Wonderful is not the one downloaded onto my kindle The cover I received was of a man and woman simultaneously kissing the checks of the cutest blue and wide eyed baby you could ever imagine Yeah I know that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover; but I'll freely admit that I am a sucker for a good oneCarol Baker wa

Some Kind of Wonderful

R Liz begin to bring him back to life But the past has a way of coming back again and the dark places of the heart have a way of staying hidden Still good things have a way of happening in Christmas and if the Reillys have anything to say about it what develops between Carol and Jack will be some kind of wonderful. I liked it The characters kept my interest I was actually surprised that this was not part of a series since a few of the secondary characters seemed to be set up for itHowever I was a little annoyed that the heroine was claiming that she d never been told she was loved and that she had never experienced a Christmas morning with gifts etc She was 10 years old when her parents died and we are led to believe that she had a happy childhood with them She was definitely old enough to remember

S to heal his wounded soulEx LAPD copy Jack Reilly's back in town temporarily to fill in for the ailing local sheriff Haunted by the tragedy that made him leave Los Angeles Jack doesn't believe in forever His sassy landlady Carol with her year round Chistmas spirit gorgeous smile and adorable little foster daughte. This was a short novella that I really liked I liked the small town of Christmas the adorable giant dog uinn and the brief glimpse of the close knit Reilly familyWhat I loved about Some Kind Of Wonderful was Carol Baker She was so funny and open and just an all around genuine person The author does a good job of vividly drawing the reader a detailed picture of who Carol is and although it drags out the mystery as to her past it was well paced But Jack really describes her best as having a smart ass mouth but a good heart I laughed and cried through this one and 95% of the time it was for CarolThe male MC Jack was a good character not great he was too crabbygrouchy for my taste and I definitely felt for him once his past was revealed but I thought his resolution to his issues were too rushed But thats usually my main complaint while reading novellas they re never long enoughAlso the baby momma issue I felt there was too much unnecessary drama Other than that this was a short sweet read
