Ad exec Krista Martin, while feeling more Grinch than elf, still jumps at the chance to co-chair Marietta’s Secret Santa Society. Why not? Especially since brilliant, attractive, and innovative tech wunderkind Jonah Andrews has agreed to help. He’s well connected and Krista’s hoping for some advice on rebooting her career.
Jonah knows Krista has a not-so-hidden agenda, but sparring with her over cocoa at their Secret Santa meetings is the most fun he’s had since returning to his old hometown. Krista may come across as all business, but Jonah’s positive he’s glimpsed a little girl inside her who wants to believe in Santa… and in love.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
“Montana Secret Santa” Love At The Chocolate Shop #3 by Debra Salonen.
My Rating: 3.5 Stars!!!
“Montana Secret Santa” is book three in the Love At The Chocolate Shop series. Each novel in the series is written by a different author.
I love reading any and all books written about that picturesque, romantic town of Marietta, Montana. If you are a fan of Tule authors than you are well acquainted with this town and the dozens of novel broken up into different series. I have read 92 of them and still haven’t gotten to them all yet! I admit I constantly stalk Tule’s website for a list of their new releases.
So if you like steady paced romances featuring sexy heroes and the woman who win their hearts, a feel good story with light suspense/angst and always an HEA, I recommend these novels.
This series takes place in and around Marietta with the focal setting being Sage O’dell’s chocolate shop.
Jonah Andrews is back in town for a while staying at his parents’ home. He is going to be their dog sitter while they visit his sister in Florida. While out walking them in town one day (or should I say while they were walking him), he knocks over a beautiful woman. One he wants to get to know better even though his stay in Marietta is temporary.
Krista Martin is only interested in establishing her marketing business that she co-owns. Her goal is for her business to thrive and be successful. She doesn’t have time for a romance. Especially with the holidays approaching. And she definitely doesn’t have time to co-chair the town’s Secret Santa charity organization with the gorgeous, sexy, successful Jonah Andrews. Or does she?
Jonah and Krista learn how to put pleasure before business. They learn how to trust in love and together with some bumps in the road their find their way to happily ever after. I truly loved the way these two showed their for each other in the end. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. This was another sigh happy novel for me.
