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?

Welcome Home for Christmas - Annie Rains

I read this in one sitting and enjoyed it immensely. My heart became engaged at the beginning and never gave up. There were smiles and tears. Allison had locked herself up believing she was fine on her own. Troy was too restless to settle down. From the moment they met, they brought out the best in each other, and I loved that. I highly recommend this story, and I look forward to reading more in this series.

I received a copy through Netgalley and this is my unsolicited review, my opinion.

Allison Carmichael needs help raising money for charity, she also needs a way to get her relatives off her back about dating. Killing two birds with one stone, she bids on Sergeant Troy Matthews. The orphans will get Christmas presents, and Troy will play her "boyfriend" for parent's annual Christmas party.

Sergeant Troy Matthews is happy to lend his time to a good cause. Especially when it's the redhead with the killer good looks and the smart mouth that buys it. He'll help her out, the orphans will get a Christmas they deserve, what could possibly go wrong?

With Christmas Eve fast approaching, what seemed like an easy charade, is turning into more than either of them anticipated. Will the magic of the Holiday bring these two together, or will they both go their separate ways when the clock strikes midnight?

I enjoyed this one. Another fairly short and festive read. Well written and the plot flowed nicely. It had a mild layer of angst that worked well for me. Both characters were likable, and there was a nice collection of secondary characters. It had an enjoyable Christmas holiday feel to it as well. Including a sweet one year in the future epilogue.

Overall just a really sweet read for anyone looking to add a bit of HOLIDAY to their TO READ list this season.
