Calliope Jones, Butterfly Harbor’s free-spirited organic farmer, is the most vocal objector to Xander Costas and his design for the butterfly sanctuary that he hopes will save his family’s architectural firm. Strangely, it’s Calliope who shows him what the town, and he, really need. Calliope makes Xander listen with his heart. And soon his heart may be telling him to stay with this extraordinary woman!

Not that long ago I read a blog somewhere about how nice it would be to cast an unlikely heroine. You know, a non-stereotypical leading lady. One that wasn’t the usual trope of being pudgy. I wasn’t sure what the blog was looking for but I think I found it.

Calliope, the heroine, was extraordinary and I’m not one bit surprised that Anna J. Stewart was the one to pull it off. I’ve read stories by her in the past and loved each and every one. I am late to the boat in discovering the Butterfly Harbor Series as Holiday Kisses is book five. I haven’t read the first four books but I wish I had. Apparently Calliope’s story was long awaited for by readers who are following this series. I can say that Holiday Kisses can be read as a standalone but it’s clear that my enjoyment would have been even better if I had read the previous books.

Xander, the hero, was wonderfully matched with Calliope’s character. Together they made a heartwarming story. I enjoyed reading the process of how they came to a mutual compromise regarding their difference of opinions over important matters. Together, they are unstoppable.

I recommend this book if you are looking for a unique heroine such as Calliope. She was refreshing and intriguing. Xander couldn’t resist her charm and neither could I. Also, If you love butterflies then this is a must read.
