|Dani Capelli has never truly belonged anywhere. And from her earliest days as a foster child in Queens, she would have been lost if it weren’t for her love of animals. Until high school, when she fell hard for the wrong boy, and found herself pregnant—and married—by graduation. Two daughters later, Dani realized her mistake and filed for divorce, and with the help of scholarships and loans—and a lot of macaroni and cheese dinners—she enrolled in vet school. Things were finally looking up…until her ex-husband became her late husband, in the most notorious way possible.
Now Dani and her daughters need an out-of-town pass more than ever. So when the retiring Haven Point veterinarian offers her a chance to settle in the small Idaho town and take over his practice, she jumps at it. But adjusting to the charming mountain community isn’t easy; thirteen-year-old Silver begins acting out while six-year-old Mia is growing too attached to Haven Point and everything in it, especially their next-door-neighbor, Deputy Sheriff Ruben Morales. And Dani can’t blame her. Ruben is everything she’s secretly wanted—and everything she can’t bear to risk loving…and losing.
- Dani is a divorced mother with two girls – one a problematic but loveable thirteen year old, the other a delightful six year old.
- Dani is an intern vet, she has made her way through school, and now has a sizeable debt loan to prove it.
- She has a history of an ex husband, whom she’d rather keep quiet about.
- She might have some feelings of guilt because of all the hours she has had to put into study and work and perhaps the girls have missed out, but that hasn’t stopped her from being a good Mom, with boundaries.
- Her own upbringing was marred by a lack of parents.
- She just might have feelings of attraction for the handsome, kind, thoughtful guy next door, son of her veterinary boss. To say nothing of the warm, friendly family he belongs to.
Seasons of Wonder is about the spirit of Christmas ( I loved the Secret Santa idea) and the spirit of family and of love and belief.
It’s a heartwarming and lovely story very suitable for the holiday season.
