ARC Review: A Baby Changes Everything by Isabella Grace

Veterinarian Drew is the only one of the four Blackwood brothers to have left Hickory Ridge for greener pastures. Though he adores the gentle, rolling mountains that cradle his family’s sprawling Virginia farm, his plans for the future don’t include a permanent return any time soon.

What they do include is accepting an offer of partnership at a prestigious equine facility in his adopted hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. If he’s lucky, he’ll even figure out how to persuade fellow veterinarian and sweetly sexy confidante Hope Logan to acknowledge the crackling chemistry between them, clearly evidenced by the single night of passion they shared weeks before.

But some surprises have a way of changing everything…

When a positive pregnancy test throws them both for a loop, Drew knows he needs to act quickly to keep Hope from bolting faster than one of the Thoroughbreds they treat. He convinces her to join him on an extended trip home to Hickory Ridge. There, amidst the warm embrace of the entire Blackwood family, the quaint holiday traditions of his youth, and his growing feelings for the mother of his child, Drew begins to accept a new certainty: the only future he truly cares about is one that includes Hope and their baby.

Can he convince her to take a leap into the unknown with him?
I want to start off with the fact that for me Isabelle Grace is a new to me author. I haven't yet read her so I didn't know much about her books. I saw this one on NetGalley and thought it was a new book but it looks like it's gotten a new title and cover. It was called Drew's Hope before. 

As I've mentioned before I've been looking for new authors to read. When I saw this one come up for review I decided I had to give it a try. I was in a baby mood. I didn't really read what it was about so I was happy when it turned out that the book happens during Thanksgiving and Christmas. You know I love a good holiday romance. 

This is a very sweet romance. It's a slow-burning one but one that you can see happening. For Drew, he knew that he cared about Hope. He was all in and would do anything to make her happy. He stood by her when her life was falling apart. I don't think she really thought about it but if she had should have noticed just how much he cared about her. 

Now Hope I wasn't sure about it at first. It took me a bit to come around. There are a few things she wanted to do that I didn't understand. I don't want to get into them because I want you to enjoy the book for yourself. Once you figure out she's scared to death and has had a bad turn of it you begin to really understand her. 

I like these two as a couple. They work. I could feel the love between them. You will also like and want to know more about Drew's family. He has a bunch of brothers. As a whole, this is a wonderful story to read during the holidays and it will leave you with so many warm feelings. I'm so glad I gave this author a try. I will be reading the rest of the series. Have any of you read her?
