So, I got a chance to read Christmas at Twilight by Lori Wilde. All right, this is my first Twilight book, but I think I got a couple on my kindle. Anyway, the good thing is I didn't feel lost when I started this book, after all it's book five in the series. Fortunately, the story focuses on Hutch and Meredith (Jane for the first half of the book).
Now Hutch has come back to Twilight, a broken man. He's trying to put back together his life, but he has a little challenge, which is he can't talk. This wouldn't be a real problem except, his sister left town leaving the care of her daughter with the woman living in Hutch's house. Meredith is a woman on the run from a psycho ex-husband, and trying to keep her life under the radar. So, she's leery about Hutch. Eventually, Hutch proves that he's not like Vick (ex-husband).
We have two broken people with actual similar up brings in a sense, but that's not reveal till later on in the story. So, you have Hutch who is caring and loving, but he has show that he's that kind of guy. I think this actually works for his advantage, because Meredith is leery about men. After all she was in an abusive relationship, where the guy was a smooth talker, but once he was able to claim her Vick asserted dominancy. So, if Hutch was able to speak, I think Meredith would have been out the door before he could say wait. Honestly, Meredith would probably have been gone had it not been for Kimmie. In a sense Kimmie is the one that brings Hutch and Meredith together.
Overall, I liked Christmas at Twilight, because it brings together two people who were broken and damage. Both of them start to build a trust. I like that Meredith was able to find a real hero in Hutch and her true north.
