The Book ✯✯✯✯
What a sweet Christmas romance! Taking place a year after the end of World War I, neither Drew nor Audra escaped the war without scars. Drew was injured, and though his leg never fully regained all of its motion, it is his violent, shell-shocked nightmares that steal most of his joy. Audra was a nurse and took care of injured frontline soldiers. Their unit was hit by artillery, and she too has nightmares. With their shared wartime scars and the shared pain of losing their spouses, Drew and Audra are a match made in healing Heaven. But they fight it, just like all good romances do.
I enjoyed that it was set in my home state of Texas and that it was a cozy December read. The PTSD was realistically done through the historical lens, and it was beautiful to watch the chemistry sizzle between the leads. It's available now, and certainly worth a read if you want a sweet, quick, Christmas romance.
