Home for Christmas (A Yorktide, Maine Novel) - Holly Chamberlin

Home for Christmas by Holly Chamberlin Have read other works by this author and have found the books enjoyable as I know this one will be. Nell is decorating for the holidays-love hearing everything that is involved as we would do that at our family house every year as well. Loved hearing of all the memories of the ornaments. She thinks this could be the last Christmas holiday she and the girls spend together in Yorktide, Maine. Molly is about to be married and Felicity will be traveling with her father and step mother to England countries. Her ex Joel had younger female interests. She had once was going to be a poet and marry Eric but she broke it off in college. She wants to make this year the best the girls ever experienced in Maine and might go to Eric's reading at the store... Lots of twists and turns for all. Liked all the baking as that's what I do starting in Nov so I can mail them out in time. Loved hearing of Nell's knitting and other hand made crafts and ornaments for the girls. Love that she will give them each something of importance. I do similar when we visit my daughter and granddaughter. They get a piece of jewelry I am wearing as it will then belong to them. Why hold it til you die and then others may fight over it. After extensive talks with one another about the important things, doorbell ringing all day, outcome is phenomenal. Received this review copy via Kensington Books via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.

Jared had died in service to his country , now Mia had their sleeping son on her chest. But Mia had learned love was no guarantee for a happy marriage and she wanted no more men in her life. Jared’s gambling had ruined them.  Then Mia had a contraction and the car slid off the road and then her water broke. And she was in labor. Will wa sin the cherry picking shed and he thought about his New Year’s Resolutions- get over Katy, finish the house and the Will added a third one- never fall in love again. Will had proposed on Thanksgiving and Katy said no she was in love with someone else and they were engaged and broke up with Will. Katy and will had been on again off again since H S but it was a foregone conclusion some day they would marry but not now. Then Will Hear a knock on his door and opened it to Mia half frozen and in labor. Will got a hold of Laney for Mia  but Laney hadn’t made it home before the storm she also told Will there was no time to get to the hospital he was going to have to deliver the baby and she would talk him through it. Will could run a multimillion international business but deliver a baby the thought of it made him feel faint. Mia named the baby Jared Willian- after Will he did deliver the baby after all- but she decided to call him Billy. Will finally got Mia and baby Billy to the hospital to make sure the were both all right. Will thought Billy was a miracle just when he needed one. Mia was to stay with her in-laws  after New Years. Once at her in laws Mia found out Jared had been cheating on her with his ex girlfriend also he had been fired by his father from his job l as he had been embezzling money from the family hotel. Any love Mia might have had even in the smallest amount was now gone.  Will came to Billy’s christening as he was his godfather and Mia was very happy to see him. Before  Will left they shared a kiss. Will also had a friend who owned a winery and he let Mia know that she could get a job there. Mia got the job three days a week and then more hours in the summer. Mia got an apartment in Sweetheart. Will wanted Mia and she wanted him too. They made a pact to always be friends no matter what. Also Will will always be there for Billy. Then they became friends with benefits.

I loved this story. It was a great romance. This book had a great pot and pace. I didn’t put it down once I started this book. I just had to see what happened next. It was a quick easy but great read. I loved Mia and Will together. Billy added to this book also I couldn’t find anything I didn’t love in this book which was terrific. I loved Will’s family and how good and accepting they were of Mia and Billy. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Home in Time for Christmas
Home in Time for Christmas - Heather Graham

Disappointing. I didn't connect with any of the characters. Things that I probably wouldn't notice, or care about, irked me. Melody's parents are too nice and wacky. Too nice (think of a Hallmark Christmas movie!)! And of course, they live in Jake's old house. Yep, he recognized it. After 233+ years of remodeling and changes, etc it was still recognizable to him. (Yeah right). I could go on, but I've wasted enough time.

Home for Christmas by Nora Roberts
Home for Christmas - Nora Roberts

After ten years, Jason Law is back in Quiet Valley. But seeing his first (and only) love again after all this time, isn't easy, especially since she broke the promise she gave him before he left. Faith didn't wait for him, but married someone else, bore another man's baby...But Christmas is a time for miracles, and just maybe both Faith and Jason might get what they always wanted.


This was a wonderful story of second chances both in life and love. A little bittersweet, and a whole lot of lovely with two lovers reunited after a decade finding happiness together at last.

The "big secret" wasn't only predictable, it was out in the open, but I didn't mind. It worked perfectly well. The characters were well fleshed-out, their story tugging at the heartstrings at appropriate moments, the small town feel was just right and perfectly complimented the story, although I could've done without the missing-kid scene. It wasn't bad, but the story could've easily done without it.

Still, a wonderful second-chances story.

Take Me Home for Christmas by Brenda Novak $1,99
Take Me Home for Christmas - Brenda Novak

Christmas is a time for remembering… 

 

Too bad not all memories are pleasant! Everyone in Whiskey Creek remembers Sophia DeBussi as the town's Mean Girl. Especially Ted Dixon, whose love she once scorned. 

But Sophia has paid the price for her youthful transgressions. The man she did marry was rich and powerful but abusive. Then he goes missing—and she soon learns that he died running from an FBI probe of his investment firm. Not only has he left Sophia penniless, he's left her to face all the townspeople he cheated…. 

 

Sophia is reduced to looking for any kind of work to pay the bills and support her daughter. With no other options, she accepts a job as housekeeper for Ted, now a successful suspense writer. He can't turn his back on her, but he refuses to get emotionally involved. 

Will Christmas, the season of love and forgiveness, bring them another chance at happiness?
