A Midnight Clear
I liked the overall story. This is a short story so I was able to read it in a single sitting. Sometimes short stories leave me rather unfulfilled and wanting more...like the story isn't quite finished. This story was really a very well contained story that wrapped things up very nicely. I was surprised by the strong emphasis on faith that was present in the story. I actually stopped reading at one point to check if this book was actually cat ...more
This latest installment is a Christmas short story between the town's new doctor, Tom Crawford, and the florist, Teri Summers. Tom's from Boston and struggling with Southern mistrust, his first Christmas away from family, and seeing where his future w ...more
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
When Teri Summers meets handsome doctor Tom Crawford, it is under tense circumstances. Her young son Aiden, who has Asperger’s syndrome, has a minor injury. Teri knows that things are not going to go well, as Aidan does not like to be touched. Teri is quite pleased with Tom’s gentle manner, but is sure that is the last time she will ever see him.
Tom is beginning his two-year commitment at a clinic i ...more
Like the song A Midnight Clear and a few of the previous books in the Last Chance series, this book is all about angels. Eight-year-old Aiden has a huge fascination with angels. He believes in them with his entire being. However, unlike other eight-year-olds, he doesn't believe in the commercialization of C ...more
Normally, I'm not one for Insta-Love, but sometimes when it's done in just the right circumstances, I can suspend believe and it can work. This worked for me. Mostly because this is a clean romance, and dealt with Teri and Tom actually connecting and not jumping str ...more

A Midnight Clear is a wonderful short story taking place in Last Chance, the setting for Hope Ramsay’s series of contemporary romances. Whether you’re familiar with Last Chance or, like me, you’re completely new to the series, anyone can enjoy this warmhearted Christmas romance.
The story follows Teri Summers, single mother of Aiden, a young boy who happens to be on the Autism spectrum ...more
Teri Summers owns and operates the Last Chance flowershop and is the single mom of a special needs boy, Aiden. Dr. Tom Crawford is the new "doc" in this small town where residents are wary of "newcomers". This was a very sweet short story of a single mom and her special needs son Aiden. The story is interwoven with three different perspectives, Teri, Tom and Aiden and this gives the reader different perspectives...more
Here’s what’s going on. Tom’s the towns new doctor from Boston and the residents of the small Southern town of Last Chance, South Carolina refuse to see him as anything other th ...more
Cute short addition to this series. She dealt with a very sensitive subject and I think did it very well. I think.....but I would be interested to know the thoughts of mothers with children that struggle with the issues Aiden does. Did they like this novella?
As with most of this series it is a bit of a fantasy, some reviewers in the past didn't like that this is a "christian" series and it isn't tagged as one. In fact it really isn't at all. Its a small town series, with different people, so ...more
While Aiden was not injured badly he did not like being touched. Aiden is autistic and a handful for a single mom with her own business. He also doesn't like the color red, Christmas and especially not Santa Claus. It makes life even harder for Teri who loves Christmas and ...more
Inspirational! Taking a very real, serious subject, and not hiding or ignoring it, but unfolding it, like a flower, to be admired and embraced. Tweaking the environment so it can thrive in this world. I'm talking about autism, and how truly gifted autistic children are.
A single mom, who thinks no one could love her, bc of her son and a very special man who understands far more than she kno ...more
The New doctor, seems to be just what Aiden needs

I enjoyed this book as part of the Last Chance series. It was a little nugget of fun from a series I read when it was current. It was short, made me smile and gave me a surprise return to Last Chance.
Hope Ramsey is one of my favorite series authors.
Aiden was an interesting young man. ...more
