With the recent loss of her father, Emma Dawson struggled to get through each day. When she starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer, she’s forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew.

Will she be able to open her heart to the mystery man of her dreams, or will a blast from the past sweep her off her feet? Could they be one in the same?


I wanted to review this whole book, but I also wanted to review each little story so that's what I'm going to do.  The first story in the book is Life's Unexpected Gifts by Lisa Bilbrey.  Lisa is a very talented author that brings us a story about a woman that is still drowning in her lose of her father. So lost that she can't really see whats right in front of her eyes, a man that is so in love with her.  But the man isn't sure how to tell her.  So he pretty much becomes her secret admirer and starts sending her these amazing and thoughtful gifts.  Gifts that she has no idea how anyone knew about them. He brings back memories that she didn't know anyone knew.

I loved this story from the beginning to the end.  At the end I wanted and needed more of these two characters.  Even though the story is short, the characters are well developed and I ended up rooting for him to win her heart.

Lisa wrote this story in such a way that I couldn't tell who the secret admirer really was till it was revealed.  I was definitely rooting for the one it was, but I wasn't so sure. 

I found myself waiting with the character just to see what the next gift would be and so anxious to see where it would come from.  I enjoyed reading about their love and I really enjoyed how everything came together. 

My Recommendation: 

This is a great love story! I would definitely recommend this book for anyone that loves romance!
