Dr. Tom Crawford isn't feeling the spirit of the season when he arrives in Last Chance. Far from friends and family, he's the odd man out in this town of gossiping, tight-knit Southerners-until he meets a sweetly sexy single mom who makes him feel welcome. 

Suddenly the handsome doctor is thinking he's finally found a place to call home. Local florist Teri Summers has her hands full of mistletoe in preparation for the holiday, yet finding someone to kiss is her last priority. But when the gorgeous new doctor makes a connection with her special needs son, Aiden, Teri finds herself wondering if she's finally found happiness in this season of joy. For Teri and Tom, Last Chance may be their best chance at love . . .


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 in Last Chance. Forever is certainly not in his view, but he cannot help but be drawn to the pretty single mother. As she is a local florist, their paths cross again. 

For a short story just under a hundred pages I was left quite impressed. Beyond family, the story contained a gentle romance, strong faith, and a wonderful promise for the future for Teri and Tom. They are marvelous characters and it was very easy to connect with them. Another thing that I loved about this story were the times Aiden’s point of view was shared. 

A Midnight Clear is part of the Last Chance series by Hope Ramsay, yet it did well as a standalone. I received this story as a bonus story of the ARC, Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains.

Many thanks to Forever for this book for review.
