I recently had the pleasure of reading Rose Verde’s A Time to Laugh. It’s an enjoyable sweet romance set in Alaska.
Izzy Davies needs to make a decision within a matter of weeks. With emotions running high at home, she decides to take a little trip to North Pole, Alaska for some time away. Her first day and she becomes friends with a little girl.
Widower, Luke Marshall receives his Christmas wish—a coveted promotion as the hotel manager, but that means searching for a new babysitter for his daughter. Someone who can accommodate his work schedule, and plan the best Christmas his little girl could ever dream of.
When he asks Izzy to take up the temporary job, she agrees but too late she finds out her heart couldn’t stay uninvolved. But she fears that when he finds out about her secrets, there’d be no future for them.
This short novella features a young woman at a critical crossroads, who is thrown off balance when Luke and his delightful daughter come into her life. The author does a nice job in conveying Izzy’s emotions as she becomes more and more attached to the girl and her relationship with Luke evolves. As in any good romance, Luke and Izzy face hurdles before they can find happiness. Set in Alaska at Christmas time and ending on a hopeful note, the story is sure to please fans of clean Christian romance. An enjoyable light read.
