Review:

Noelle by Greg Kincaid is a sweet holiday tale. One that pulls a family together and reunites them in a way that haven’t been. Happiness comes with time. A dog named Noelle does all the hard work. She’s a pretty Christmas dog that brings cheer everywhere she goes. The family mentioned inside also snatched my heart and soul. Everything felt so real. A beautiful emotional journey told by Greg Kindcaid. It’s memorable. An engaging story that hooks me right from the start. It kept me interested until the very end. Overall, I recommend reading, Noelle

Now, when she faces a move into an assisted living community and meets a young woman on the brink of despair, she resolves to stir up hope through tragedy one more time. 

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Colors of Christmas by Olivia Newport were inspiring tales. Two wonderful novellas about finding hope, forgiveness, and joy. Both stories were realistic. Each one featured a woman going through struggles. Real life issues with characters that were easy to connect with on every level. The pacing was steady sometimes felt slow. It felt a little dry in some areas of the plot. I wish there was a bit more of an emotional rollercoaster. Overall, good stories.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Christmas in Kilts is a fascinating yet sexy tale full of Highlander romances. Every story was as enticing as the previous one before it. I couldn’t put this book down…too good. Heat, chemistry, and lovable characters. They pulled at my heart strings. Sweet, engaging, and funny, too. These writers have brilliantly captured my heart and soul with every page. 

A Highlander’s Hope by Terri Brisbin was good. Her hero falls for a woman of different standing. One that was considered below everyone in the clan. A herlot. The woman protagonist came from a mother who was a herlot. Her backstory of being rapped broke my heart. I felt sympathy towards her. Despite her position in life, she had good friends who supported her as an equal. That made me like the characters even more. Terri Bisbin created a beautiful heartfelt tale of overcoming obstacles and finding happiness. I recommend her story to all. 

A Highland Christmas Wager by Lecia Cornwall is funny and sweet. A young woman faces her past mistake from the age of eighteen. It haunts her still with the man who stole her virtue. He teases and pushes her in all the wrong ways. However, she’s not interested. The lady has grown up since that encounter. Strong, smart, beautiful and caring as ever…her grandmother is betting on her getting a husband. Yet, she’s determined not to wed. Tha was until a particular laird comes forth. Something about his kind eyes and listening speaks to her. Hishandsome features also make her heart beat faster. A few kisses in and both are wanting each other forever. Only, jealously and other problems get in the way. It was addictive to watch the characters fallhard and fast. I loved it. Lecia Cornwall can write well. Overall, I recommend her tale to all. 

A Scot for Christmas by Bronwen Evans is fun and addictive tale. The woman protagonist leads her own fate. I found that quite interesting. Tired of waiting for what may never come, the lady goes after her heart’s pleasure. It will cost her, her pride and maybe her friendship. But if she’s successful, all may be well. Loving a man whose wife died, is hard. He can’t let go. His wife never loved him and he only lusted after her. Not a great foundation for a marriage. Fate has brought two friends together in a way one of them never expected. Hot, sexy, and charming…Bronwen Evans delivers the most exciting Christmas journey ever. I recommend her story, A Scot for Christmas, to all. 

Leftover Mistletoe by Lavinia Kent is full of innocent love. A young innocent English woman is stranded with a Scot. His large form intrigues her. Thinking he’s asleep throughout the ride, she doesn’t push away from him too much. But little does she know, the Scot is very aware of her and her beautiful frame. His friend ends up bribing the coachmen to leave the pair stranded nearby a cottage filled with food, water, and drink. Christmas is approaching and the Heat intensifies with every page. Sexy, hot, and sweet. Both characters were charming. Their dilemma was interesting. Captivated me from the beginning to end. I couldn’t stop reading it. Lavinia Kent surely knew how to capture my full attention with every word. Overall, it was a perfect romance. 

Sweet Home Highland Christmas by May McGoldrick is a stunning yet hilarious tale. A Scottish soldier and a young woman with her niece are brought together. But it wasn’t by fate…the source that brought them together will surely surprise readers! I couldn’t believe it…it was so cute. I fell in love with all the characters. The good ones anyway. Love, hope, and a lot of laughter are found on these pages. The entire tale made my heart melt. An aunt must marry in order to keep her sister’s child. Or else lose her niece. An arrangement to marry a terrible cousin, she has no choice. Until a certain soldier comes into her life, making her dream of happiness. The niece loves the soldier…

Review: Christmas at Carnton







Synopsis:

A novella to launch a brand new three-book series . . .

In the midst of war and the fading dream of the Confederacy, a wounded soldier and a destitute widow discover the true meaning of Christmas, the cost of love . . . and of loving again.

Recently widowed, Aletta Prescott struggles to hold life together for herself and her six-year old son. About to be evicted, she sees an advertisement for the Ladies Aid Society Auction and applies for a position—only to discover it’s been filled. Then a chance meeting with a wounded soldier offers another opportunity. And friendship. But can she trust him? Is Jake Winston the man he appears to be? Having lost everything once, Aletta is determined to guard not only her own heart, but also her son’s.

Captain Jake Winston, a revered Confederate sharpshooter, suffers a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga. When doctors deliver their diagnosis, Jake fears losing not only his greatest skill but his very identity. As he heals, Jake is ordered to assist with a local Ladies Aid Society auction. He respectfully objects. Kowtowing to a bunch of “crinolines” isn’t his idea of soldiering. But orders are orders, and he soon discovers this group of ladies—one, in particular—is far more than he bargained for.

Set against the backdrop of the real history of Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee, Christmas at Carnton is a story of hope renewed and faith restored . . . at Christmas.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Christmas at Carnton by Tamera Alexander is a story of great loss and of great hope. The engaging historical tale was easy to read. I enjoyed following the characters. A woman lost her husband due to war. She’s carrying their second child. The first child is eager for Christmas. But all hope for a good Christmas ends when, Aletta looses her job. Then, the bank gives them two weeks to find a new home. A soldier injured from war returns back home doing work he doesn’t like. But then, fate brings Jake and Aletta into each other’s path. A chance for love, hope, healing, and new beginnings. Christmas approaches the characters and it was exciting to see where their future went.  Christmas at Carnton was believable. Entertaining and sweet. I recommend this novel to readers everywhere.

Review:

An Amish Christmas Love is a perfect blend of Christmas tales by four outstanding writers. Each writer has her own unique flavor that only added to this collection of novellas. In Winter Kisses by Beth Wiseman, was about each woman finding courage to love for the first time or to find love again. A granddaughter finds love for the first time, a mother who lost her husband, finds a new love and the grandmother who lost her husband finds courage to love her first love after all the years. The tale was full of hope, love, and laughter. Next, was The Christmas Cat by Amy Clipston. This, story was about an elderly Amish woman who lost her husband after so many years. They never were blessed with kids. Now, faced with a lonely life, the woman finds a cat to keep her company. Then, when she least expects it, she gets more company but in the human form. I thought it was sweet, heartfelt, and beautiful. Third tale, is Snow Angels by Kelly Irvin. A young Amish woman has forever loved a young Amish man from her community. However, he hasn’t always loved her. Now, just as they are engaged, fate brings an unexpected twist. A former Love enters the mix, and from there it’s emotional tug of war. The young man appears confused with both loves near him. But only he has the power to choose which destiny is right. This short novella was full of faith, choices, and forgiveness. Last but not least, the last story in this collection was Home for Christmas by Ruth Reid. Here, a young Amish boy is lead to a community where he was going to work for his Uncle…only to find out that he broke his probation agreement. His uncle takes him back and helps the young man fix his situation. Meanwhile, the young Amish woman who became friends with the young man is devasted that he left. Her heart feels heavy…but this Christmas is full of surprises. Overall, I loved each one of these tales. They were entertaining, delightful, and realistic. It was easy to love the characters. I was rooting for them all. I highly recommend An Amish Christmas Love to all.

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

The Amish Christmas Candle is a great collection. Not my overall favorite. The stories are more modern living than the Amish way of living. I did enjoy how each character found happiness, hope, love, and healing. 

Snow Shine on Ice Mountain by Kelly Long is a sweet yet inspiring Amish romance. Two young people who learn what love really is. Gray realizes love is peace and he’s never felt peace with any other girl except for Naomi. Naomi is a bit older than gray and very plain looking. But her heart, mind, and soul, are worthy of any man’s heart. Gray comes to realize that Naomi is the one. Naomi starts to feel like a wanted woman with Gray. But can she trust her heart to him? Kelly Long’s short story felt believable. It wasnt like other Amish tales I’ve read. Most wouldn’t allow the things that each character did without a chaperone or without some kind of consequence. However, it was sweet, engaging, and heartfelt. Gray not only finds peace but love and healing, too. 

A Honeybee Christmas by Jennifer Beckstrand is another entertaining short story. I liked how one English woman left her way of life to raise her three nieces as Amish women. That took a lot of strength, determination, and power. Imagine leaving the life you have now, to live a plain simple one…I don’t think I could do it. I may enjoy it, but I would miss a lot of things. The writer brought an untraditional tale and still gave it a heart tugging feeling. I warmed up to the main characters. Overall, it was realistic and a great adventure. 

The Christmas Candle by Lisa Jones Baker is the last Amish tale inside this collection. I felt the Christmas holiday sweeping over me. The pages went by quickly. Excitement rushed through me as I read every page. Filling me with a sweetness that I couldn’t let go. The main characters were enjoyable to follow. Both having faith in God. This story was more traditional in the Amish setting than the previous tales before it. I really loved this one. Giving back to the community, learning to trust, and not giving up hope are great themes found, here. Lisa Jones Baker created a piece that I fell in love with…overall, I highly recommend reading The Christmas Candle to all.

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Sugar Pine Trail by RaeAnne Thayne is another holiday Christmas tale that I loved. Heartfelt, emotional, and sweet. A young woman, finds surprises like two adandoned boys, who lost their dad and maybe even their mom…a hot man renting a room upstairs from her, and other new experiences. I enjoyed reading this book. I cried, laughed, and was able to connect with all the characters. The main protagonist, Julia, was believable. She’s this clever, kind, sweet, yet shy librarian. However, she does have a bit more to her then what most see. Her sexy crush turns out to be more than she originally thought…a flitter who has a heart of gold. Loss, hope, love, and new beginnings are found here. I recommend this book to readers everywhere.

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

The Christmas Room by Catherine Anderson is a sweet heartfelt tale. One full of surprises. The beginning was sad, intense, and emotional. I laughed, cried, and fell in love. Loss, grief, fear, and hope are just some of the major themes explored on the pages. The plot was steady paced. There was some heat. Overall, it had a clean romance environment. The families involved felt real. The scenes carried me to the last page. I felt like jumping up and down with excitement and hugging the characters. Catherine Anderson created another cozy family holiday tale that was believable. I enjoyed reading this book. I recommend The Christmas Room to all. 

Review: Holiday Spice 








Synopsis:

There’s only one thing Benjamin Tanner loves more than his woodcarving: solitude. Then he gets snowed in with Darcy in his cozy cabin in the woods, and their heated feelings begin to melt the icy barrier between them.

With Ben’s need for privacy and Darcy’s love of family and social life, will opposites still attract once the snow clears and the holiday festivities come to an end?

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Holiday Spice by Samantha Chase is another brilliant masterpiece. The ending made me cry with happiness. I was affected during the entire book. Intense, emotional, and intriguing. The plot was well-done as always. Addictive…the pages went by fast. The scenes dragging me up into the characters’ lives. Every page left me wondering what will happen. I’ve never been disappointed yet with any of Samantha Chase’s novels. Her books are out of this world. Holiday Spice is exactly that. Spicy and sweet. A holiday novel that was hard to stop reading. 

The main characters were total opposites. The male character, Ben, was similar to Darcy’s brother, Owen. Socially awkward, smart, and extremely talented. Ben hates interacting with others. In fact, he doesn’t interact with his orders at all. Ben and his two brothers lost their parents. The loss and grief hit Ben the hardest. He never celebrates Christmas anymore because that’s when they lost them…

Then, comes along beautiful yet sassy, Darcy Shaunghnessy. She knocks Ben’s world out of tilt. He can’t stand hearing the truth from her so he runs and hides. But he knows she’s right. He loves her laughter, her baking, and making love to her. She makes him feel alive again. Without her, his world is grey.

Darcy Shaunghnessy is a young woman who lost her mother ata young age. Ever since then, she’s been dealing with family issues. Wanting a mom…but Santa never brought her one. Instead it was just her, her brothers, and her dad. Now, as an adult, her brother blessed her with sister-in-laws and nieces to spoil. But Darcy’s world still isn’t whole. 

Until she meets Ben. Ben makes her knees weak. He makes her feel whole. Complete. But his world and hers don’t match…it will take something toget these two their happily ever after…

Overall, I fell in love with this book. Samantha Chase knows just what us, readers, want. Heartfelt and unforgettable stories. Stories that left me laughing, crying, and falling in love. I highly recommend this new novel to readers worldwide. 

Review: Miracle on 5th Avenue






Synopsis:

It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York! 

Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she’s given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn’t expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner. 

Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife’s death looming, he’s isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn’t appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist? 

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan hold so many meanings. Deep, raw, and emotional. The journey for each character was sad, funny, sexy, and heartfelt. Delicious meals, hot sex, and  frustrated individuals during Christmas makes for a great read. Both lost someone special to them. Lucas lost his wife the night she told him she didn’t love him anymore. Eva lost her grandmother and Lucas’s grandmother is her friend. Almost like a second grandmother to her. Mistzy hires Eva to bring Christmas to her grandson, aka Lucas’s apartment. To Eva, he was supposedly in Vermont. However, both she and Lucas get the surprise of a lifetime. Between being strangled, calling 911, and being sexually attracted to one another, their time is interesting. I couldn’t help to laugh, cry, and love them. Lucas’s grandmother was also another character I admired and loved. She added humor, wit, and understanding to the tale. Christmas is approaching…Eva is a romantic and Lucas has a writer’s deadline. Can they both get what they wanted plus, more? Miracle on 5th Avenue is exactly that. Miracles do happen. Sarah Morgan’s writing was beautifully done. I highly recommend it to all. 
P.s. This should be a Hallmark movie. 

Review: A Fool’s Gold Christmas






Synopsis:

The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.

Jaded lawyer Dante Jefferson is getting used to the backwater town he now reluctantly calls home, but the pounding of little dancers’ feet above his temporary office is more than any man should have to take! When he confronts their gorgeous teacher, he’s unprepared for the attraction that sears him down to the soul. Evie is his best friend’s sister–off-limits unless he’s willing to risk his heart. Dante has always believed that love is the most dangerous force in the universe, but that was before he had to reckon with the magic of a certain small town, where miracles do seem to happen…

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

A Fool’s Gold Christmas by Susan Mallery is a heartfelt read. Charming, sweet, and entertaining. Susan Mallery has talent. Creating new worlds that excite, as well as leaving me to fall in love with the protagonists. A woman comes to a small-town to help a dance instructor. She came back because she injured her leg and can’t dance. While trying to run a dance recital from scratch with little knowledge, Evie feels terrified of failing. Then, add to her distress of her crush being next door to her. Chemistry sparks between the two. Cozy, fun, and warm. But like everything else, there’s always a bumpy road. No destination easy. Dante thought he knew what he wanted. Fate shows him something his heart desires and he runs scared. Where that will leave them, is the mystery. I think Evie is too easy on Dante. He should have worked a bit harder. However, I reealized that this read was a Christmas tale and as always there is a miracle. Once more, I enjoyed reading a book written by Susan Mallery.  

Review: Snow Job



Synopsis:

Natalie Duncan is caught off guard and on the road over the Christmas holiday by a blinding snowstorm. In an act of desperation, she picks up a hitchhiker along the mountain pass. When night closes in and the storm worsens, they take refuge in an abandoned cabin to wait out the blizzard. 

Russ Crew is instantly attracted to Natalie, but the gold band on her finger stops him from pursuing her. 

Natalie, a widow, is also drawn to him except the difference in their ages convinces her that he’s a nice guy simply being polite. Due in part to their desperate situation they form an emotional bond that soon turns physical. But once the snow melts, can they make a relationship work in the world outside their ramshackle cabin?

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Snow Job by Kelly Fitzpatrick is an adventure of a lifetime. For both Natalie and Russ it was definitely a life changing event. Both got stuck and stranded in a snow storm. Leaving them inside an ugly,cold, and dirty cabin. One that had no running electricity, water, or food. Freezing their butts off and starving they eat spam and use snow for water. Struggling to survive the duration of the storm. Something more happens. Sending Natalie and Russ feeling hotter than coals on a fire. Lust. Romance. Emotions that neither wanted to feel occur. Strangers helping each other. However, when the storm ends will their hearts be one or broken? 

Kelly Fitzpatrick has created a contemporary romance novel that is both funny and sweet. An older woman keeps herself from letting the best thing ever happen. Love. Russ is a bit younger than her. That alone fuels her energy to keep the distance. But their chemistry is so intense, Natalie can’t deny it. Sex. She can’t forget him even if she tried. Her heart says yes. But her mind says no. She leaves him. However, Russ isn’t ready to call it quits. Broken heart or not, he searches until he finds her again. Natalie was easy to relate to as well as like. She’s a mother figure trying to be the best for her teenage daughter. She wants to hold her daughter forever, but knows it’s time to let go. Russ likes Natalie and her daughter. The daughter is sursprisingly smart for her age. Like a mini version of her mom. Russ comes to love them both and is willing to convince Natalie that. Only Natalie is fighting it all the way…Overall, I highly recommend Snow Job to readers everywhere. 

Review: The Holiday Gift

 

Synopsis:

With two kids and an active life, widow Faith Dustin only wants peace and quiet for Christmas. But her snowy Pine Gulch ranch is nothing but chaotic. All that keeps Faith going is her helpful neighbor, cowboy Chase Brannon. He’s always been “good ol’ Chase,” her faithful friend. Until he kisses her under the mistletoe…

Years ago Chase blew his chance with the woman he’s loved since childhood. Now he’s determined to step out of the friend zone…and into the role of husband. But the scared and stubborn Faith won’t let herself fall. With Christmas just days away, Chase will need all the magic of the season—and the help of her two matchmaking children—to unwrap a second-chance at love.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

The Holiday Gift by RaeAnne Thayne is a cozy heart melting tale. Two best friends who harbored a secret love for one another. Yet neither one wanted to destroy their friendship. The friendship works perfectly until both are single adults once more…

A good looking cowboy loved his female best friend since the beginning. But he didn’t know how to tell her. Then, before he realized it was too late, she was taken by another man. His chance came and went. Now, years afterwards, he’s divorced and she’s a widow. Both have a daughter from their marriages.

As the holiday comes around, can two best friends be bold enough to close the gap and let loose their real feelings? RaeAnne Thayne has once again created a beautifully story that winds itself into readers hearts and souls. It touched me deeply. Sad, frustrating, funny, and sweet. I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster ride and look forward to reading the next book by this talented writer. The Holiday Gift is truly a must read for all.

Review:

One Christmas in Paris by Mandy Baggot is a beautifully written tale. I loved how the characters came from different backgrounds. That’s definitely one item that always catches my eye. When reading this new novel, I fell in love immediately. It talked about art. Different forms of art. Take two different kinds of artists and put them together. It creates an intensity that draws readers in deeper. I loved the fighting and the chemistry that forms between the two. Mandy Baggot brings readers a woman model who has two issues. One a mom that won’t stop pushing her to continue modeling and a boyfriend who betrayed her. Ava decides to go all out by defying her mother. Super short bright blonde haircut and a trip to Paris. There, she and her best friend engage in a secretive mission, meet two amazing French men, and fight for what they want. Ava learns to no longer do what her mother wishes. She goes after what she wants. She soon bumps into one particular French man. He instantly irritates for no particular reason and then he riles her up faster than one can blink. It was funny to watch. The warmth and other, set of emotions felt real. Mandy Baggot has a talent in creating three-dimensional characters that will pull in readers, everywhere. One Christmas in Paris is highly entertaining, hilarious, and romantic. Overall, I recommend this novel to all.

Review:

Nicole Strycharz is indeed a talented writer. I can’t see her not writing a book that readers will fall over in love with or beg for more. The writing style is superb. Easy to read and follow along. There’s always an emotional journey that Nicole Strycharz creates in every one of her brilliant novels. I fall in love every single time. I can’t help myself. The emotions tugging at my heart over the characters’ frustrations, struggles, and undeniable love. Anyone you reads this stunning lady’s work and not feel any kind of emotion or connection is lacking life’s good gifts. Laughter, tears, and kisses. Yes, all that and more can be found in this particular read. 

Nollaig Shona Duit; A Christmas Tale by Nicole Strycharz is everything readers will want plus, so much more. I can’t find a single thing wrong with this incredible story. Two irresistible characters, check. A fast moving plot, check. An engaging tale that captures readers hearts and souls, double check. A sexy and sweet romance, absolutely. A novella about finding love, happiness, and new beginnings, definitely inside this book. The main character, Shea is a man to love passionately and to never let go. I want him. That there proves Nicole’s talent. I need to read more about her famous characters. I want to hear and see more. She delivers a promising read that satisfies every readers’ desire. A feel good romance perfect for any day especially, during the holidays. Perfect, sizzling, clean, an well-written. The characters were well-developed. The struggles were believable and kept me turning the pages. I truly love this writer’s work. Overall, I highly recommend this latest novella to all. (P.s. This along with all her other works need to be turned into big screen movies! Just saying…)

Book Review: Forever This Time by Maggie McGinnis

Forever This Time by Maggie McGinnis is the kind of forever romance that will leave readers feeling good and begging for the next installment. I choose this novel because nothing is forever and my curiosity was exploding. Maggie has beautifully spun together a story that will lure readers deep into the romantic plot that gets exciting with every page.

Forever This Time is indeed just that. Two highschool sweethearts living the old cliché romance that we all see in movies. However, this one ends up surprising not only the guy that goes all out and proposes to a woman of his dreams, who has said yes, but to us readers as well. A girl who can’t wrap her mind around the love that her and her boyfriend have. It’s the kind that she’s always dreamed of and it’s happening. Now, after ten years away from each other and the pain of rejection, both are going through the Forever This Time moment again.

Her father has a stroke and may or may not recover, then there’s her mom, and now, the awkward moment of seeing Ethan again. Does he hate her? He should..

I highly recommend this brilliant cozy romance to all. This novel by Maggie McGinnis is fresh, bold, and charming. I loved every moment. Readers will leave the confines of their homes and travel deep into the shoes of Josie and Ethan. So much history, passion, pain, and a lot to learn before fate seals the deal. But will it be a happy Christmas or a sad one? Readers must grab a copy and read on to find out! I promise it’s worth reading. Overall, I rate Forever This Time a five out of five stars.

Book Review: Home for Christmas by Lily Everett

Home for Christmas by Lily Everett is one warm and cozy romance that readers will love. Two unlikely characters come back home to Sanctuary Island. This time it’s Christmas and each character has his and her own reason for returning.  Something in their current life has brought them back home to face what they left. Readers will find themselves lost in the hopes for what could be the one of the best Christmases ever.

Home for Christmas makes me think of snowmen and hot chocolate. Decorating a tree and making snow angels. Lily Everett has beautifully put together a story of family, new love, and tough choices. But is it really hard to make a decision when those you love are there with you? Readers will find out as they are lured deep into the very lives and heart of both a war hero and a solitaire columnist are forced out of their comfort zones.

Owen’s afraid his daughter won’t want him and heck his childhood wasn’t perfect which leads him to guessing on how to connect his little girl. A girl just as stubborn as her father. Then there’s Libby a writer at heart. She spends her time alone writing for a food magazine until her boss signs her up for a job that leads to her spilling about all her lies. She is now left with two choices from her boss, do the job well or be fired. Libby can’t lose her job and so sets on back home where she has to help Owen and his daughter. Can these two find their Christmas miracles with each other or will both lose everything that’s dear to them? I highly recommend this heart melting and sweet romance to all. It’s hard not to connect with each of the characters. Plus, Lily Everett has masterfully woven a sense of humor into a loving tale about family, love, and new chances. Overall, I rate this novel a five out of five stars.

A Christmas Story for Animal and Coffee Lovers

Bulgaria’s Christmas

By

Danielle Urban

 

 

There once was a cat. A very handsome cat indeed. His coat was as black as coal. His eyes were as bright as stars. This cat’s name was Bulgaria. He was a strong and brave. He loved to hunt and play.

It happened one day, Bulgaria heard his clock chime. He looked at his clock. His very old clock. It ticked, ticked, and ticked. But soon, he realized what day it was. Oh no! He said. It was going to be Christmas in four more days. Bulgaria panicked. He wasn’t sure what to do. He knew if he wasn’t a good cat, he wouldn’t get any gifts. And he wanted his gifts. His owner was a very kind and loving owner. He made Bulgaria happy. Bulgaria loved his owner. And his owner loved Bulgaria. Bulgaria needed to start behaving. He knew his owner liked sleep at night. And so, Bulgaria knew he must let his owner sleep. But then Bulgaria would be up all night. And with nothing to do. But play, play, and play with his owner. But his owner wanted to sleep. But Bulgaria wanted to play. His owner kept ignoring Bulgaria at first. Bulgaria then decided to nudge, meow, and scratch his owner. Telling him to stay awake and play. But still Bulgaria was left alone to play. What do I do now? Bulgaria thought. He sat, and sat. Thinking what to do. Then he remembered he needed a gift to give his owner. There was only so much time let until Christmas. Bulgaria got up and ran out of the room. Searching for a gift. What to give him? Bulgaria thought. And he thought. Suddenly, he knew! His owner loved coffee. Bulgaria was a very smart cat. He could open doors with his huge paws. And so, Bulgaria left. Running as fast as his little paws could go. Soon, Bulgaria ran into mischief. Another cat much bigger than Bulgaria was blocking his path.

Bulgaria had to get through. He needed to get to the store before morning. He didn’t want his owner to know he had gone out without his permission. The bigger cat sat, and sat not moving out of Bulgaria’s way. Bulgaria then ran around in circles before rushing past the big cat. The big cat hissed but, Bulgaria was soon at the store. The store was light up. People were going in and out. How to get in? Bulgaria thought. The doors weren’t like those at home. No door knobs to turn. Sitting in front of the door feeling out done, the door opened. Bulgaria ran in and was soon inside the huge store. So many walls with boxes all over. Bulgaria being a hunter, used his nose. Sniffing his way to the coffee aisle. Finally, in aisle six. He found the walls containing the coffee bags. But Bulgaria couldn’t reach them. Oh no! He thought. Once again he sat pondering what to do. Just then a lady pushed her shopping cart close to the coffee wall. Bulgaria looked and looked. Soon he got up and climbed up the cart. At first his jump didn’t make it. So, he jumped again. He slipped. Determind to get a bag of coffee or his owner he jumped up. His jump was high. High enough to reach the cart. Then he jumped to the top of the cart. Only one more jump to the coffee bags. But then the lady was coming back to her cart. As she was about to push the cart. Bulgaria leapt out of the cart just in time. He heard a scream. And then he landed on the shelf and hid behind the coffee bags. A man came by the woman. She pointed to the shelf. But seeing nothing the man walked away. The woman took her cart and left running out of the store. She had quit a scare. Bulgaria checking the coast, peeked out from behind the bags. Splat!

Oops! Thought Bulgaria. He had dropped a bag of coffee onto the floor. Ducking behind the bags once more. Bulgaria waited. Just in-case another person came by. He waited and waited. But no one came by. Okay now it’s time. Bulgaria thought. He walked in between the coffee bags sniffing but couldn’t smell the one that his owner liked. So, Bulgaria being a naughty cat. Scratched and scratched at the bags. Until coffee poured out from the bags. Oh no! Bulgaria was soon covered with coffee grounds all over. Sneezing this way and that. Ah- ah- achoo! Bulgaria ended up knocking down another coffee bag. And then another. Oh no! He was in trouble! Bulgaria looked down but saw it was too far to jump down. What am I going to do now? Bulgaria was stuck. He could not jump. And his owner would find him gone. All his fault. Bulgaria hid on the shelf further away from the coffee. The next day, Bulgaria’s owner realized he was out of coffee. Searching he couldn’t find Bulgaria. He looked and looked. But still No sign of Bulgaria. Thinking Bulgaria hid after last night. He laid down Bulgaria’s bowl for breakfast. He then went to the store. But when he got there. People were yelling. Bulgaria’s owner went to see what was happening. And there in the coffee aisle was the store owner trying to pick up Bulgaria. Bulgaria! The owner shouted. Running to the shelf, Bulgaria meowed and rubbed his head against his owner’s hand. Bulgaria was safe for now. His owner was happy to see Bulgaria again. But was surprised to see him in the store. “What are you doing in here, you silly guy?” Looking around he found the bags of coffee ripped open and the bags knocked down on the floor. And Bulgaria was covered all over with coffee grounds. “Aw, you poor guy. You knew I was out of coffee. Didn’t you?” Bulgaria meowed and rubbed his head against his owner’s chest. Talking to the store owner, he paid for the ruined coffee and bought two bags of it to take home. Once home, Bulgaria was in need of a bath. Oh no! Sensing this, Bulgaria ran and hid from his owner. But his owner was quick on Bulgaria. He scooped Bulgaria up into his arms and took him to the bathtub. But Bulgaria didn’t want a bath. He doesn’t like getting his body wet. He hated it. He fought and fought and fought his owner. But his owner held him still in the soapy warm water. Bulgaria was soon clean of the coffee grounds. He could finally breathe better too. But looking in the mirror. Bulgaria looked like a wet black rat. He was sad. His owner rubbed his shiny coat with a towel and soon Bulgaria had an alfro. Laughing quietly his owner brushed Bulgaria’s hair back into place. And once again Bulgaria looked again. This time he looked good. He looked really good. He started to purr and purr. And his owner patted and patted Bulgaria. “See, now that wasn’t so bad? Was it?” Bulgaria was just happy it was over. He didn’t want to look like a soaking wet dripping rat. Cats hate rats. Soon, the days went by and Bulgaria still didn’t have a gift for his owner. Saddened by this thought, Bulgaria laid in his favorite box. His owner looked over at Bulgaria. “What is wrong little guy?” He patted Bulgaria and Bulgaria purred but then looked sad again.

Soon it was Christmas day. And Bulgaria still didn’t have a gift for his owner. Bulgaria was sad. Very sad. He didn’t want his gifts. He wasn’t hungry either. And then to everyone’s surprise, including Bulgaria’s. There on the counter top was a bag of Star Bucks coffee that no one bought. But then who did? Bulgaria looked around and then saw a note. For Bulgaria’s owner from Santa. No way! Thought Bulgaria. But, he hid the note away and dumped it into the trash. Bulgaria was happy. He finally did have a gift for his owner and it was all thanks to Santa helping him.

THE END

Book Review: The Brands Who Came for Christmas by Maggie Shayne

Brands for Christmas

Maggie Shayne has a raw talent or writing the perfect romance. A romance suited to hook, lure and trap readers in a world like our own but filled with heart melting happiness. This Christmas novel teaches others what is really important. Family is the most important thing that the story centers around. Both Cain and Maya learn what love truly is about and how it really works. Maya and her four other sisters and her Mom were betrayed by the one man that should have been there for all of them everyday. Their father had two separate families, and later got mixed in with the wrong people and killed along with his other wife.  Since then Maya, her sisters and her mother were against trusting men. Maya ends up meeting a stranger named Cain. Cain is a politician’s son next inline for a current race. But all that changes when he meets Maya at her family’s saloon. Soon, they are dancing and enjoying each other’s company. Next, Maya and Cain are alone and their passion builds up. But, Cain soon realizes that he was Maya’s first and soon realizes just how much he wants to keep seeing her. But as he leaves Maya promising to see her again tomorrow morning, he gets a call about his father and leaves  without an explanations. What is to come of their one night together? Will Cain come back to Maya? Will Maya accept Cain back into her life after he left her without a single word as to why he left?

This novel was my favorite kind of romance to read. Both Cain and Maya had a lot to learn about love and themselves. Each one had a different life that they were living. It was interesting to see how their lives would connect and how they ended up together again for the second time. The well written plot is one that will keep every reader up late reading. The unexpected twist pops up creating stress on Cain’s and Maya’s relationship. This only pulls the two main characters closer. The characters are easy to connect with on every level. I would recommend this novel to others. Overall, I rate the book a five out of five  stars.

Can he finally convince his fashion designer that he wants her in his lie forever and ever? Or will all his attempts turn into failures?
