    This review was written for Every Perfect Gift, Hickory Ridge Series #3.
    This is the third and final book in this series, I have read them all and enjoyed! We have met Sophie before, and love that now we have her story. We are reunited with some of the friends we had come to love, and meet some new and many endearing ones.

    Sophie Robillard Caldwell is now all grown up and is facing her fears. Having grown up in Hickory Ridge, TN in their orphanage, she wants to now reopen the local newspaper. Her life in this town was not a very happy one, but she is holding her head high, and has finished her educations.

    Ethan Heyward has been hired to build and oversee Blue Smoke Resort. He has done a splendid job, and it has been acclaimed. When Sophie appears for an interview...sparks fly. Yes Ethan is taken with Sophie, but they are both fighting their past demons, and we read along hoping that each will make the right decisions.

    Loved the view into 1880's living, and rebuilding after the Civil War. Don't miss this conclusion to this sweet series.

    I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Dorothy Love in her new book, "Every Perfect Gift book coverEvery Perfect Gift" Book Three in the Hickory Ridge Romance series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the lives of Sophie Caldwell and Ethan Heyward in Hickory Ridge, Tennessee in 1886.

    From the back cover: Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they're not sharing could tear them apart.

    Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.

    Ethan Heyward's idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.

    When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She's equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan's own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.

    As human beings what is the one thing we all like to keep? The answer, secrets. What is the one thing that God knows that we should not keep because it is detrimental to, not only our health, but our relationships as well? You guessed it, secrets. What is the one thing that Sophie and Ethan have in common? Of course, secrets. "Every Perfect Gift" is a story about guilt, bad choices and forgiveness. Both Sophie and Ethan made mistakes in their past and it takes God to work out everything in their lives and set them straight for their future. Ms. Love is an excellent writer and makes all her characters believable and you care deeply for them as she deftly unfolds the plot before us. This is a nice romance with great themes. I liked this book and am sorry to say goodbye to Hickory Ridge as this is the last book in this series but I am looking forward to Ms. Love's next book which will be set in South Carolina.

    Every Perfect Gift is the third and final book in the Hickory Ridge series. This story takes place during 1886 in Hickory Ridge, Tennessee. Sophie Caldwell returns to her hometown after years of living in Texas with her guardians, Wyatt and Ada. Sophie has a true gift for writing and returns to Hickory Ridge to breathe life into the local newspaper, the Hickory Ridge Gazette. When Sophie interviews Ethan Heyward regarding the building of the prestigious Blue Smoke resort she becomes smitten with him. The feeling is mutual as Ethan cannot seem to get Sophie off of his mind. As the story continues we learn that both Ethan and Sophie have secrets from their pasts that plagued them. Both are unsure if these secrets will hinder their future together.

    This was the first book that I have read by Dorothy Love and I really enjoyed it. Although it was the third book in the series, I believe it is a stand-alone read as I have not read the other two books. However, the other two books may have helped me further in my understanding of some of the characters. I would recommend there are many lessons learned. This book illustrates how one person can change a person's life in many different ways, both for the good and the bad. Also, it shows that so often what we fear the most never comes past. Finally, we learn that many times we pray for something that once received is not really what we want at all. It may be worth noting that there is a short reading group guide at the end of the book for those who may be interested.

    Dorothy Love brings her Hickory Ridge series to an end with this one and she does a fine job of it, too!

    Sophie is back in Hickory Ridge after moving away with Ada and Wyatt Caldwell , who adopted her in the first book. Sophie has been called names many times and fears she is of mixed blood.

    Ethan Heyward is in Hickory Ridge, overseeing the building of a fancy resort. Sophie likes him but fears he won't return the feelings when he finds out who or what she is.

    This book lets us see that God loves us and works out our problems despite all our fears and worries.

    Don't hesitate to purchase this book.

    This review was written for Every Perfect Gift, Hickory Ridge Series #3.
    Christmas time in Hickory Ridge with Sophia Caldwell is a great place to be. Although this is totally a stand alone story, we met Sophia in Beauty for Ashes, and it was great to revisit her, as she too returns to Hickory Ridge after growing up in Texas.

    The story is told so effortlessly that without noticing, you are involved with the lives of the people in the village. I am eager to go visit to see the Blue Smoke resort that was built in the late 1800s and the office of the newspaper The Gazette that is Sophia's dream.

    Learn with Sophia that people can change, and going back home is not always a bad thing. My heart was squeezed when some of the people were rude to her because of perseptions, and when I read of how her year in the orphanage had been, but then I also rejoiced as friends from the past, as well as new friends accepted her, and paved the way for her in the community.

    To say this novel deals with relationships would be simplistic, as all novels dealing with life do that, but this one deals with prejudice and suspicion. It really shows that you should believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see (which was a favorite quote of my Dad's). This was truly a great novel, and I read it in one day, hesitating as I got to the last half of the book because I didn't want it to end! Enjoy!

    I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publisher through their Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to make a positive critique, and the opinions in this post are my own.
