REVIEWER: Brenda Larnell  RATING: A
REVIEW: Hunter Prescott, Vice President of Marketing for his family’s business, Prescott Holdings, is preparing to wed the love of his life, Michaela Saunders. He has also been working tirelessly to prepare for the opening of a new resort in Southern California. All of that has contributed to the increasing fatigue that Hunter has been experiencing. So, he thinks.

Hunter and Michaela’s love story centers around second chances. It is a heartwarming and inspiring story that will resonate with your romantic sensibilities. Keeping with the theme of the series, the death of Abraham Prescott, the Patriarch of the family, changes Hunter’s life. Something happens to Hunter the day before his wedding. As a consequence, Michaela and Hunter do not take that walk down the isle. I will not reveal what happened because I want you to discover the full affect of Hunter’s decision to ghost his family and his fiancé. Not only does it become a factor in the terms of the will that the deceased Grandfather outlines in his last wishes to Hunter, but it also involves Michaela and her aspirations to become an artist. Ok. No spoilers. You’ll understand everything when you read this engaging story.

All the minor characters contribute to the intrigue of the story and the development of the main characters. The Prescott family members are all present to help move the storyline along. Speaking of characters, it was great to catch up with Terrence “Monte” Campbell and his wife Janae (
JUST TO BE WITH YOU) in this story.

I love Sheryl Lister’s style of storytelling. Whether it’s a full-length novel or a novella, her writing prowess comes through. The HEA for Hunter and Michaela is the wonderful culmination of a year long journey in which forgiveness plays a pivotal role.

I enjoyed this story, and I recommend it. I also recommend that you read all the books in this four-book series,
Once Upon A Funeral, written by talented writers, Sherelle Green, Angela Seals, and Elle Wright. In the meantime, you can start with this book, TEMPTING HUNTER by Sheryl Lister. You can thank me later.
