Same Time, Next Christmas
Same Time, Next Christmas - Victoria Alexander The best of regency lies at the hands of Victoria Alexander. From her quirky characters to her enchanting tales, she knows what it means to captivate readers. From humor to heart, Same Time, Next Christmas piles on the charm. From beginning to end, the most endearing of moments is the ones that surprise us all. Fletcher and Portia bring sentiment to life and take romance to heart in this flighty and flirty tale.

Christmas in July – The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki @amyjarecki
The Time Traveler's Christmas - Amy Jarecki

The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki was a wonderful surprise for me.

 

I won the book and read until the wee hours of the morning to find out how it would end.

 

I look forward to reading more of the Guardian of Scotland stand alone series.

MY REVIEW

 

The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki was a wonderful surprise. I loved this historical fiction novel and stayed up to the week hours of the morning to finish it.

 

Lachlan had not only lost one of the biggest karate tournaments of his life, but also his cheating wife. Now…he’s hiding out at his uncles.

 

His uncle had left him a Christmas gift, a medallion. He put it on, went to sleep, and…

I was immersed in Lachlan’s story early in the book  and he never let me go. He is a sexy warrior that believes in doing the right thing, at all costs.

 

The surprises and action came early and the character’s came to life through Amy Jarecki’s words.

 

I was curious where she would take the story. Is it possible to straddle both worlds, moving back and forth between them? Would the medallion choose for him? Or would he have to choose?

 

Lachlan thought he knew and had one year . Come next Christmas, it would be time to go home. But he had this Christmas.

 

Of course, we have romance and, even though the sexual tension between Lachlan and Christine is almost instantaneous, their relationship develops slowly.

 

I was invested in their lives from the opening pages. They are strong characters that grow and develop over the pages.

 

I was surprised how much I loved The Time Traveler’s Christmas. Not about the time travel itself, because I love to read the genre, but because of the time and dialogue.

 

Lachlan had been transported from the twenty first century to medieval times, and to Scotland to boot. I thought it might be tough reading, but I worried for nothing.

There was so much more to the story than I anticipated.

 

Sprinkled with truths of history, the Guardian of Scotland stand alone series is one I want to continue.

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.

Great Holiday Read
Just in Time for Christmas (Southern Born Christmas Book 2) - Kim Boykin

Just In Time For Christmas by Kim Boykin is a fantastic holiday romance.  Ms Boykin has delivered a wonderful, well written book with lovable characters.  Miranda and Logan's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice.  I enjoyed Just In Time For Christmas and look forward to reading more from Kim Boykin in the future.  Just In Time For Christmas is book 4 of the Lowcountry Lovers Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

The Polar Express, is another one of the classics I want to have in my classroom. I would read it around Christmas Time during whole group reading. Or just to have in my library for my students to read.
