A Hero For Holly by Kristy K. James, E-Book review

(Available on 30 July 2012 - See author's page below for more information)


Single mom, Holly McGinty, has no life.  No personal life, that is.  After her husband left her pregnant, with a four-year old son, there was never much time for her.  Between raising two boys and saving her restaurant from bankruptcy, she’s been too busy taking care of everyone and everything to give much thought to her own needs.   In fact, the highlight of her week is swooning over her oldest son’s sexy scout leader.
Sam Jensen never believed in love at first sight…until the first time he saw Holly.  But even though he gets along great with kids, and is successful as both an architect and investor, figuring out relationships with women has never come easy to him.  Now it seems as though his luck has changed.  As long as one little tiny secret remains a secret.

My thoughts:

Kristy K. James is a Christian author from whom you can expect a great book and after reading ENZA, I knew I was in for a treat! 
I know I have said it before, I prefer a good hard copy in my hands but given the opportunity to review an E-book version only, I set aside my apprehension. She is just too good to miss!
So what exactly sets out 'A Hero For Holly' and why do I recommend reading it?  

Kristy's magic touch! I am a dreamer as you well know it and I love to see things turning out for the better for everyone betwixt the pages of a book. After all, when reading a trade book (versus a textbook which is not always so pleasant), you wish to immerse yourself in another dimension, seeing and believing the best in everything. 
Then there is the fact that Sam is a Scout Master who loves kids of course and it brings back a few memories...(Just ask hubby!)

Such is the story behind 'A Hero For Holly'. Holly and Sam have stars in their eyes but of course there are a few challenges along the way for you to discover, a sure inducement for you to turn page after page, sometimes bringing a tear or two, sometimes making you chuckle...
Somehow I do not think you will guess Sam's little tiny secret!

When an author can actually make you feel so alive that you feel tingling in your fingertips (or toes!),, you know you have something good in your hands (I almost forgot...in front of you as in a Mobipocket  Reader!).

Once again, Kristy K. James has a way to make you believe in 'living happily ever after'. You will find good families values in this romance and do not have to fear loaning your copy to any young adult!

I give it 4 stars!

About the Author:

'Kristy K. James' first goal in life was to work in law enforcement, until the night she called the police to check out a scary noise in her yard. Realizing that she might someday have to check out scary noises in other dark yards if she continued on that path, she turned to her other favorite love...writing. 
Since then her days have been filled with being a mom and reluctant zookeeper (7 pets), creating stories and looking for trouble in her kitchen.'
