Review: The Lights on Knockbridge Lane by Roan Parrish

Can one man’s crowded, messy life fill another man’s empty heart?

Raising a family was always Adam Mills’ dream, although solo parenting and moving back to tiny Garnet Run certainly were not. After a messy breakup, Adam is doing his best to give his young daughter the life she deserves—including accepting help from their new, reclusive neighbor to fulfill her Christmas wish.

Though the little house may not have “the most lights ever,” the Mills home begins to brighten as handsome Wes Mobray spends more time there and slowly sheds his protective layers. But when the eye-catching house ends up in the news, Wes has to make a choice: hide from the darkness of his unusual past or embrace the light of a future—and a family—with Adam.

My thoughts

I have been reading Special Editions for years – lots and lots of years. I am so happy to see that diversity has come to this brand.

I love holiday romances. (I have said this before and will probably say this again.) This is the first time I am saying it when it stars spiders, snakes, and other animals that would have Adam squealing and jumping onto a chair. (laugh) Don’t worry Gus, Adam’s daughter, will save him. (chuckle)

I love The Lights on Knockbridge Lane. Roan Parrish brings humor, science, family, and romance to this sweet holiday tale. Adam is the perfect foil to Wes. They are two nerds who belong together (smile). Then there is Gus who is beyond amazing.

Parrish also brings back characters from the “Garnet Run” series and we get to see how everyone is doing. There are some spelling and grammatical errors, but this doesn’t interfere with the reading of the story. 

When I finished this story, I immediately wanted to start reading it again. Parrish gives you that warm holiday feeling that you just don’t want to let go of.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
