Review: 5 stars
Jack Bailey left Shadow Creek Montana five years ago, after losing his identical twin brother and nephew in tragic accident. Leaving behind his mother, father, sister and the love of his life the woman he asked to marry him Lily Cookson, thinking everyone would be better off without him. Just looking at him they would see his twin brother Michael.
After an email from his sister Gwen, telling him he needed to get home due to their father’s illness, he returns home. But he has his work cut out for him if he thinks Lily will allow her back into her life, she may still be in love with him but she feels she can never trust him again, after he left her and made her suffer the most devastating loss of her life, their baby, she can’t allow him back into her life. But after a few week after a New Year’s Eve night spent together, when morning sickness kicks in a few weeks later, Lily realizes staying away from Jack just got a whole lot harder. But when secrets come out will it make them or break them.
The Baby Bombshell was a short & sweet second chance romance, about loss & forgiveness. It had everything this reader loves in an amazing romance book small town atmosphere, loving & caring friends, second chance love, a few giggles and a few tears shed, a whole lot of tears shed on the two chapters for this gal. I just felt the agony that Jack was going through when coming back to Shadow Creek after five years the burden he was carrying, think he had burned a lot of bridges but in reality when people love you they are always there with open arms when you return. The scenes between Jack and Lily you could feel how much each cared and loved each other but had to let go of the past before they had any chance of building a future together.
This was the second book I have read by Victoria James and definitely there will be more to come. If you are looking a wonderful evening read I recommend you pick up The Baby Bombshell Baby, but be warned have a few kleenex near by!
I received a copy for my honest review!
