When Sophie Davis sorts through a box of donated books to her church, she’s surprised to discover a soldier’s journal. As the daughter of a veteran who watched her father struggle over the years, she feels a deep connection to the man who wrote the emotional entries.
Former Marine Cole Aaron battled to find peace after returning to civilian life. He’s always needed to protect others. Now, fighting fires in Pine Hill, Kentucky helps him put out the demons within him. When Sophie shows up at the fire hall with his journal from when he’d first returned stateside, Cole can’t believe it was in the box he’d donated. Not wanting to face painful memories, he tells her to trash it.
Sophie and Cole are drawn together as they both volunteer for their community, but it’s hard for Cole to let down his guard, and he doesn’t need anyone’s pity. After all he’s been through in the past, can he find faith in a more hopeful future…one touched by joy?
This heartwarming romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Dilly Duchess Potatoes.

About the book:
If you like time travel, historical fiction, romance, or anything Christmas, then this is the book for you. This book is a 4th in series and is said to be a stand alone. I would suggest to read the first two books because it will give you an idea of who the characters are and how their connection came to be.
The story begins in modern day 2020. The main characters, Patrick and Eve are a beautiful couple that have a new daughter. It was sad to me that (spoiler) that tragedy strikes so early in the book. However, it does set up the return to time travel and how they will eventually fill the "Christmas Eve Promise."
Although, admittedly, I am not a romance kind of reader, their love for each other is literally timeless and not sappy, it worked for me. I like the idea of time travel and the way it is supposed to happen in this book is interesting.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the authors. The views here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Michelle
