My review

I enjoy the Dream's Edge series by Traci Hunter Abramson.

The Best Mistake is a novella that comes between the first two books. It is unnecessary to read it to understand what happens in either book. Nor does it need to be read in order.

The Best Mistake tells how Linda and Miles meet and eventually fall in love. It is a quick read. It is plot-driven and a bit on the cheesy side. While Miles struggles with his recovery, and Linda encounters a few problems, it is a light read.

The Best Mistake is best for those who are already fans of the Dream's Edge series or plan to read it.


Synopsis (Goodreads): 

Following a knee injury during the final Stanley Cup game, professional hockey player Miles Donnelly finds himself sidelined in the hospital with his career hanging in the balance. His only hope is to work with a doctor to rehab and rebuild the strength in his knee. The catch: he has to remain in New York City for the next two months rather than return home to Montreal.

After her father is incapacitated by a heart attack, Manhattan socialite Linda Bancroft trades house parties in the Hamptons for taking over management of the family’s real estate empire. But her first day on the job, she faces imminent disaster after an unscrupulous employee is fired. She needs a new apartment manager, and fast. The unlikely solution to her problem comes in the form of an injured—and dangerously handsome—hockey player looking for a place to stay. Thrown together by chance, Miles and Linda quickly realize there is something deeper between them than just friendship. But when outside pressures begin to strain their relationship, they must confront an impossible question: Can two people from entirely different worlds truly build a future together?
