Dr. Tom Crawford isn't feeling the spirit of the season when he arrives in Last Chance. Far from friends and family, he's the odd man out in this town of gossiping, tight-knit Southerners-until he meets a sweetly sexy single mom who makes him feel welcome. Suddenly the handsome doctor is thinking he's finally found a place to call home. Local florist Teri Summers has her hands full of mistletoe in preparation for the holiday, yet finding someone to kiss is her last priority. But when the gorgeous new doctor makes a connection with her special needs son, Aiden, Teri finds herself wondering if she's finally found happiness in this season of joy. For Teri and Tom, Last Chance may be their best chance at love . . .
OMG. This book may be a shorter novella, but it will have you tearing up like crazy! Teri is a single mom with an autistic son. She has come to the conclusion that this is all her life is going to be - who would want to take on all she has? Her son, Aiden, is adorable. But he hates Christmas - Santa, carols, candles, red - he'll have none of it! But Dr. Tom sees something in both of them and he just can't resist getting to know them better. Here's where the tears start, and they just kept coming in the most amazing and heartfelt way.

I loved that this was such a real look (as for as my knowledge goes) into not only a single mother, but also into a family with a child that no one seems to understand. There are even small breaks in the narrative where we get to see things from Aiden's point of view, and they were amazing. Everything he thought made such perfect sense, but it just didn't quite translate into our world in the best way.

Watching Teri, and then Tom, work with Aiden to make his life fulfilling and comfortable. Working with his unique quirks while still trying to expose him to a wonderful world was great to see.

As Tom and Teri try to navigate this new relationship, Aiden is trying to navigate a new world of his own - a new type of Christmas.

And now I'm tearing up again. Seriously, everyone has to read this!!!

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
