Title: When You Find Love
Author: Willa Blair
Genre: Fantasy Romance, Holiday Romance
When Scottish antiques appraiser Caitlin Paterson accepts a commission in the Hamptons, ’tis the season for Christmas miracles. Too bad she doesn’t have one handy. Successful businessman Holt Ridley resents being forced by his great-aunt’s bequest to winter at the family estate he has hated since childhood. Still, the enticing appraiser he finds there is an unexpected holiday gift—or is she? Among the furnishings Caitlin is tasked with appraising, she discovers the key to centuries-old heartache that plagues Holt's family. Caitlin longs to help Holt find the happiness that eluded him his entire life—but this secret could destroy everything.
Ever since he was little, Holt despised his aunt and her grand estate in the Hamptons. When a lawyer reads Holt his aunt’s bequest, Holt refuses. But his business needs capitol and he’s sure he can sell off the estate and all its priceless antiques to raise the capitol. He packs up and moves in. What he doesn’t expect is the alluring Scottish antiques appraiser to capture his heart. Can he keep her at arms length, or will she be the key to unlock his heart’s desire?
When You Find Love is a beautiful romance filled with combative personalities, a family curse and a love that can’t be quenched. The whole cataloguing of the estate fed my Antiques Roadshow obsession and I commend Willa Blair on her descriptive narration. It transported me to the past and the present while being able to dive into the mystery. Holt and Caitlin are opposites when they first meet but as the story goes on, we discover they’re more alike than either of them will admit. Character-driven plot with supernatural undertones make this a must-read. There’s a few twists I didn’t expect which only added depth to the story. The ending was so fantastic, I didn’t want it to end. If you love fantasy romance, you’ll be smitten with When You Find Love.
Favorite Character/Quote: Caitlin. From the moment she appears in the story, I connected with her. Her Scottish brogue and mannerisms delighted me but it’s her love of history and finding treasure in attics I adored most about her. She’s spirited and the perfect match for Holt.
My Rating: 5 stars
