City girl Tess Roger's idea of adventure involves putting cream instead of milk in her coffee, so she has no business consulting on a new adventure park. But when her best friend makes her a deal she can’t refuse, posing as a consultant is exactly what she does. Surely she should be able to fake her way through a meeting or two. How hard could it be?
Max Grant isn’t blind. It’s easy to see that the super sexy, consultant put on his account doesn’t know a thing about adventure activities. He can see after only five minutes of meeting her in Hope Falls that she isn’t who she says she is. But there’s something about her and when the chance to take her back to Castle Mountain Lodge comes up, he can’t resist the opportunity.
Lies have a way of building, and with her feelings for Max growing, Tess can’t keep it up for much longer. But telling the truth could mess everything up including the chance for love.
Accidental Gifts is a standalone novella in Melanie Shawn’s Hope Falls Kindle World. It’s connected to Sweet Reunion by Melanie Shawn where you first meet Amanda and Justin with Mountain Ridge Outdoor Adventures. And is also connected to Elena Aitken’s Castle Mountain Lodge Series where you will find many of the characters familiar. It can be read and enjoyed on its own
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Accidental Gifts is a novella written in the Hope Falls world but crosses over to author Elena Aitken's Castle Mountain world. It's a story of mistaken identity, with a twist. Rather than being an innocent mistake, it was an intentional deception, but for the best of intentions. I felt for Tess as she fumbled through pretending to be Clara, and laughed along with Max as he figured it out and tried to give her every opportunity to come clean. I love how Tess kept overcoming her fears, first out of loyalty to her friend and then because of her growing feelings for Max. I love how this story crossed over both worlds and the author did a great job of transitioning from one world to the other - a very realistic storyline. A sweet story with a fun premise written in two worlds that I already love.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
