The Lights on Knockbridge Lane by Roan Parrish _ Book Review

Amazon | Goodreads

Can one man’s crowded, messy life fill another man’s empty heart?

Raising a family was always Adam Mills’ dream, although solo parenting and moving back to tiny Garnet Run certainly were not. After a messy breakup, Adam is doing his best to give his young daughter the life she deserves—including accepting help from their new, reclusive neighbor to fulfill her Christmas wish.

Though the little house may not have “the most lights ever,” the Mills home begins to brighten as handsome Wes Mobray spends more time there and slowly sheds his protective layers. But when the eye-catching house ends up in the news, Wes has to make a choice: hide from the darkness of his unusual past or embrace the light of a future—and a family—with Adam.

From Harlequin Special Edition: Believe in love. Overcome obstacles. Find happiness.

I received a digital arc for an honest review]

The Lights on Knockbridge Lane 
is the third stand alone in Roan Parrish’s Garnet Run series. This one follows single dad Adam and his 8-year-old daughter Gus who both fall in love with their reclusive of a neighbor Wes.

“Such a nerd.” Adam kissed him again.
“Such a romantic,” Wes said, returning the kiss.

This was a charming holiday romance. Adam is a fantastic parent whose patient, honest and i touch with his emotions. Wes is a brilliant mind who loves non-traditional pets and before Adam and Gus barreled into his world he lived a solitary nocturnal life. Wes and Gus bond over their love of science and animals of the creepy crawly variety. Both Adam and Gus make him feel loved in a way he never has before, and their unique little family unit is adorable. Aside from all the family moments, the one on one moments between Adam and Wes are electric, emotional, and high steam.

“Adam felt wild. The desire for Wes coursed through him until he was nearly dizzy with it.”


The Lights on Knockbridge Lane is a holiday romance filled with passionate kisses, holiday lights, spiders and lizards, inedible pies, glowing plants and monster Christmas cookies. Another great addition to the Garnet Run series by Roan Parrish!
