Add to Goodreads:
Love is a nuisance when all you want is to disappear.
Two weeks before Christmas, Katie is kicked out of her apartment. Again. Rather than wander the streets and continue to work for a dirty cop, she decides to leave the city and disappear for good. But her car breaks down in a New Mexico town, and everything is threatened when she falls for the charming mayor.
Sam Freedman is the first bachelor mayor of Amor. After convincing the locals that having a mayor without family responsibilities means he can dedicate all his time to the community, townspeople watch his every move. Then Katie Andersen shows up. Against Sam’s better judgement, he hires her to replace his event coordinator. Now he can barely think straight, let alone run a town.
In the midst of half-truths and outright lies, Katie and Sam desperately search for the place where honesty and trust lead to love. Can they find it before the past catches up with them?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3.75 to 4 Stars…
Borrowing Christmas is the first book to come in the Borrowing Amor series by new author Kat Bellemore. While I’m not sure what trope the rest of the books will be, this one is a Christmas romance. Amor is a small New Mexico town. This town was charming with lovely characters. Makes me wonder who will get a story next.
Sam and Katie…..
Sam is the mayor of Amor. After the previous major died in an accident, Sam felt it was his moral duty to run for the position. It was, in fact, his father who was the previous mayor. Sam goes above and beyond to win the town’s approval. I thought Sam was a bit obsessed with his job, acting a bit anxious as times. He tried too hard which cause him to ultimately lose sight of what was truly important. But all it took was a strong, independent young woman who was running from her own problems, to show Sam what was right in from of him.
It was sweet to watch Sam and Katie find love with each other. They each learned some important lessons along the way. It took some hurdles to get over but in the end all that was important was their love. That said, I wished this book was a bit longer. I would have liked to spend more time in the town of Amor.
There were many likable secondary characters introduced in Borrowing Christmas. I can only wonder who will star in the next story. All in all this was a short, sweet Christmas story that warmed my heart and did a good job with putting me in the mindset for the holidays!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
