Hilarious Second Chance at Love... The last person Maddy Kelly expects to show up at her mountain cabin for the holidays is her soon-to-be ex-husband, who was always too busy to enjoy their hideaway. Following doctor's orders to reduce stress, Michael arrives at their remote cabin, unannounced and unexpected, in the dead of night, during a snow storm. Which is why Maddy greets him with a fire poker to the head, rendering him unconscious, and with a case of temporary amnesia. As his memory returns, Michael realizes how much he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get her back, even if it means pretending to still have amnesia.
Add to the mix Michael's mischievous 13-year-old nephew, who has stowed away in Michael's car, and Maddy's two dachshunds Rambo and Muffin, who take an instant disliking to Michael, and you have a laugh-out-loud recipe for a romantic romp.
Michael has been on a fast track career as a lawyer which has left him lttle time for his wife, Maddy. Even though Maddy grew up rich, she is down to earth and has TWO DACHSHUNDS. Anyone who knows me realizes I can’t resist a story with dachshund involvement, so my review will contain spoilers of a doggy nature. Maddy acquired the dogs after she left Michael and moved from the swanky condo her parents bought them into a country cottage with room for animal to roam. Michael didn’t make it to the hospital as Maddy lost the baby he didn’t know about.
These two had some severe communication issues that I think occur with all busy couples. So when their family doctor conspires to get them together for a weekend, they are forced to talk. Now they are stuck in a cabin that both thought the other would never visit again, along with Michael’s stoway nephew. Maddy had hit Michael in the head because she thought he was breaking in and ended up with a bit of amnesia that went away but he didn’t admit that to her.
The dachshunds did provide a bit of comic relief when they realized that Maddy was upset with Michael and decided to chew up his jeans and growl at him. This is the perfect pick me up read that will lighten your mood. I really enjoyed it since the character and situations felt true. It has just the right amount of spicy and sweet.
