The Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge

Synopsis: A Merry Texan Christmas

This former all-star never knew Christmas could be so competitive.

Former baseball star Trey Prentice is happily adjusting to life as a bookstore owner in his hometown of Sweet Ridge, Texas. While he loved his competitive and elite lifestyle in New York, he craved a quiet life with friends and family more. As Christmas approaches, Trey is excited to decorate his newest venture and participate in the town’s holiday traditions. He never expected to find himself battling Sweet Ridge’s very own Miss Christmas. Game on.

The only thing librarian Maggie Watson loves more than books is Christmas. She’s even earned the nickname of Miss Christmas because she decorates shop windows and spreads Christmas cheer around town. But this year she’s got some competition. No way is she going to let the cocky Trey Prentice take away her Christmas crown, even though he makes her heart flutter.

When their verbal sparring turns to flirting, Maggie finds there’s more to life than books and Christmas. But will her past insecurities steal her newfound happiness?

My 📝Review📝: 4 Stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

A Merry Texan Christmas by Nicole Flockton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book was a fun read. A whimsical treat sure to attract readers who love sweet romance with a Christmas theme. Maggie and Trey had so much in common, yet they were so different at the same time. One thing they both loved though, was Christmas. Maggie is so over-the-top obsessed with Christmas that she is known by her small town as ‘Miss Christmas’. This is a title Maggie takes very seriously. She prides herself on being the best at decorating and she loves to dress up all the store windows in town. Her Christmas displays are known as the best and everyone looks forward to them. But when Trey Prentice, former professional baseball player, returns home and purchases a local book store, Maggie finds she has competition.

Trey is not aware of Maggie and her ‘Miss Christmas’ alter ego. So, when he decorates his store window for Christmas, Maggie is upset, and a bit jealous. The town is amazed by Trey’s display and comments are made to Maggie that maybe she has competition now. You can guess that Maggie and Trey don’t hit it off right away. Truthfully, Trey is not a bad guy. He is not trying to one-up Maggie. He simply decorated his store window. Maggie admits that Trey’s window display was amazing but she was not happy about it.

So, Trey and Maggie are off to a rocky start. But Trey doesn’t let Maggie and her bad attitude about him continue for long. As he finds himself trying to be her friend, he is able to cause Maggie to drop her guard and trust him a little more each day.

Without giving details, I’ll tell you that is was so much fun to watch these two grow as a couple. The pace of their relationship is slow which makes it more realistic. There is a bit of angst as well when Trey is offered a mentor job in the NBL. What will happen to his growing relationship with Maggie if he takes the job? You’ll just have to read it and find out.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Reading this book kept me smiling throughout. A Merry Texan Christmas is the third book in the Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge series. I am looking forward to reading about Trey’s brothers in the previous books.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Noel, Alabama: An Alabama Christmas Romance by Susan Sands

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was really an enjoyable book. All the elements of Christmas in a small-town atmosphere with a bit of angst and a wonderful cast of characters. I have not read any of the previous books in the Alabama series as of yet but after reading this one, I definitely am looking forward to it. One of my favorite aspects of romance novels are the small-town tropes. Add Christmas and a bit of whimsy and I’m very happy. In addition to reading and loving this book, I am happy to say that I have found a new author that I like. I can’t wait to read more of this series.

Bailey and Seth…..
Why is it that one half of a couple is always eager to run away from their hometown? And in doing that, inevitably breaking the heart of their soulmate. I just don’t get it. So many romance novels in the second chance genre go this way. Unless there is a damn good reason, I have trouble forgiving. I know that Bailey needed to bolt to make her dreams come true and I am fine with that. But rarely coming home to visit is what bothers me the most. Thankfully, I was able to forgive her.

Seth never left Noel. It is and always will be his home. If only he could make Bailey see how wonderful Noel is and how much he still loves her. When Bailey comes to town with a film crew she will find more than the hometown Christmas she has always loved. She finds herself wanting another chance at love with Seth. The development of Bailey and Seth as a couple is slow which I liked. While the background focus is filming the movie and Bailey making sure her bosses are happy, she and Seth become friends again. Of course, Seth is being understandably cautious with his heart this time. I truly enjoyed watching all their interactions. This couple was mature and courteous of each other. In fact I adored every single character on the pages; some of which I am eager to read about in the earlier books of this series.

The pace of this book is perfect. The author gave me not only a satisfying story with a great ending, but she truly out did herself with the Christmas aspect. Who knows how I will be able to celebrate our usual Christmas this year with everything going on in the world today. 2020 has not been a good year. So, when I am gifted with stories such as this one, I am happy. I absolutely recommend this book. If you are a lover of Christmas romances, Noel, Alabama is a must read!

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis

It’s the opportunity she’s dreamed of…

After spending two years focused on her career, Rowan West is finally up for an advertising manager promotion. Holiday parties and gift-buying are on hold as Rowan travels to New Hampshire to create a marketing campaign that can revive a struggling, Christmas-themed resort and adventure park. Rowan’s brains and ambition make her shine, and she won’t allow anything to get in her way—especially not her far-too-handsome competitor with a sense of humor and high-up connections.

He needs to prove himself…

Jeremy Kincannon is competitive enough to fight tooth and nail for a promotion he doesn’t even want. Because his stepfather owns the company, no one believes he earned his spot despite having climbed up from the bottom like everyone else. He’s intrigued by his button-upped, business-only colleague who’s distractingly pretty. So he lays down a challenge—he’ll call a truce to their verbal sparring if she tries to have fun.

As their rivalry wanes and attraction grows, will Jeremy and Rowan embrace the magic of Christmas?

The Magic of Christmas by Christi Barth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


4 Stars to The Magic of Christmas by Christi Barth.
I loved the premise of this book. The fact that the majority of the story takes place at a Christmas themed resort and amusement park is just icing on the cake. I wish there was such a place near where I live. Upstate and several hours of driving there was a Christmas themed amusement park. But because it was so far away and didn’t have striking reviews, we never visited. The author gave me such excitement as she described her little town in New Hampshire with the Christmas resort. I felt the fun and excitement as if I was there. There were so many fun things to do that I was swept away by not only the storyline, but Christmas as well.

Rowan and Jeremy are rivals at the same marketing firm. Rowan was vying for a promotion and she won’t let anything get in her way of receiving it. Especially Jeremy who is up for the same promotion. When they both are named finalists, Rowan isn’t happy. While in her own mind, she is better than Jeremy, he has a better chance. Jeremy is the bosses stepson. Rowan, as with many of the staff at the firm, believe Jeremy got his position due to nepotism. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Both Jeremy and Rowan are being sent to New Hampshire to create a campaign to save the theme park, which hasn’t been doing well. They both must come up with their own campaign and present it to the board. There can only be one winner.

I’m not going to lie, I disliked Rowan and her condescending attitude from the moment I read the first page. She was so full of herself. Unfortunately, it took me a good portion of the book to understand her better. Jeremy, however, I liked from the beginning. He was a gentleman. He made me laugh and he was considerate of Rowan from the beginning, even when I didn’t believe she deserved his friendship.

As the story goes on, their friendship grows into romance. But before they even have a chance to admit their feelings for each other, something happens that sends Rowan back to Chicago earlier than planned. And alone.

This is a sweet, fun, and sometimes whimsical story and I recommend it to anyone who loves romance with a Christmas theme. It was a pleasure to read.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

He’s ready for the lights…

Baker Grant Reed loves discovering new Christmas recipes, making people smile, and Angel Point—not necessarily in that order. But when his editor turns down his proposal for a Christmas cookbook, he must show her how serious he is about becoming the premier pastry chef in the country. He turns to his best friend, Faith—if anyone can give him a complete makeover that will turn heads, she can.

She knows how to make things sparkle…

In her past, Faith Hathaway was a costume designer for some of Broadway’s most prestigious plays. Now, after moving to Angel Point to help her grandfather, she owns and operates a vintage boutique and helps out at the local theater. When Grant asks for a makeover, she’s torn—she loves him the way he is, mismatched socks and all.

In exchange, he promises to show Faith, who has never enjoyed the holiday season, the magic of an Angel Point Christmas. But as the two grow closer, Grant can’t help but wonder…has he got his Christmas wish all wrong?

The Christmas Makeover by Susan Lute

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What a wonderful, feel-good story. This book was a breath of fresh air, an original story and I absolutely loved it!

Why did it have to end? How often do you read a great book and then when it’s over, that book is all you think about? Well, The Christmas Makeover was that book for me. I read so many books each month and most of them become forgettable. There was just something special about this book that is still strongly resonating with me. I want to live in Angel Point. I want to be friends with Grant and Faith. Another wonderful thing about this book is the premise. I haven’t read one like this in so long which only added to my enjoyment. The Christmas Makeover is a sweet, clean romance. So if you’re looking for intense and dirty, this book is not for you. The pace was steady, the characters, which there are many of, were all amazing in their own ways and added even more enjoyment. My only complaint is that I wish there was an epilogue. The H/h didn’t have enough time together as a couple before the book was over. I am not going to give you a summary for the sole reason, that I don’t want to spoil your reading enjoyment. I will add that the author does an amazing job depicting the holidays. I am so ready for the fun and chaos of Christmas. Especially this year.

This book is part of a series so I can only hope the author will let us revisit Grant and Faith in the next book. Gosh, I adored them! I recommend this adorable, heartwarming book to anyone looking for an endearing, feel-good holiday story. It was wonderful and a must read.



This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Jason Regan is a man on the go. Excluding his high school years in Holly, Idaho, he’s never settled in one place. Building his engineering company requires a lot of travel, so when he returns to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a decade-old parking ticket, he’s not planning to stay for Christmas. The judge’s ruling changes that—he’s assigned community service at an animal shelter requiring his skills.

Former lawyer Tess Evans moved home to pursue her true calling—managing the Forever Home Animal Shelter. The shelter is chronically underfunded and understaffed. So, to raise money and awareness, she organizes a ‘Home for the Holidays’ adoption event at Holly’s Christmas festival. Getting a skilled volunteer at such a critical time is a gift and Tess takes full advantage. Their to-do list is long, and not falling in love is number one.

As their attraction grows, they keep forgetting Jason’s stay in Holly is temporary. Can Tess, a lonely terrier named Neville and some Christmas magic change his mind? 

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

A Home for the Holidays by Jeannie Watt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A Home for the Holidays by Jeannie Watt was a fun and enjoyable Christmas related romance. While most of the book was predictable, I found myself enjoying it as if I hadn’t ever read anything similar. The characters especially, were endearing and complex at the same time. I knew there would be a happy ending however, I wasn’t sure how Jason and Tess would get there. So, there was the intrigue in that aspect. I have read this author many times previously and always enjoy her stories, characters and premises. I’m probably in the minority, but I don’t like a lot of angst in my romances unless I’m reading a specific genre where I know it will be prominent. That said, this book has a bit, but not too much.

As the Christmas aspect of this book goes, I loved it. I love the holiday season and everything that goes with it. For me, Christmas romances are a part of my holiday traditions and I start reading them as early as September. Christmas comes and goes to quickly as far as I’m concerned.

Tess runs the local animal shelter. While she does have volunteers, she could always use more help. There is always some task needing to be done. But her biggest worry is whether or not she will receive the grant she applied for. The town council will only award her the money IF she finds homes for all the remaining animals at the shelter by Christmas Eve.

Jason has come back to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a parking ticket fine. A decade old fine. Instead of a monetary penalty, the judge requires Jason to spend 100 hours helping at the animal shelter. While Jason pays his dues, he finds himself enjoying the time spent with furry friends. One furry friend, in particular. In addition, Jason is growing feelings for Tess. But that is not a good idea since he is planning to go back to California in a couple of weeks.

I enjoyed watching Tess and Jason become more than friends. Jason was an amazing character; a gentleman and a thoughtful and considerate man. Tess was a great match for him in every way. This was such a sweet story and I recommend it for anyone looking for a sweet, holiday romance.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Sarah Goldman loves Hanukkah, and she’s thrilled to be appointed as vice chair of the Hollowville Hanukkah Festival. So when the festival is threatened with cancellation, she comes up with an idea: a new slogan and advertising campaign topped off with a metal menorah large enough to fill the center of town. But even though her heart and dreams are large, the committee’s budget constraints threaten to stop her grand plans right in their tracks.

Famous metal sculptor Isaac Lieberman also loves Hanukkah. But his vision of a perfect Hanukkah isn’t a commercial community event—it’s spending time with family, following age-old traditions. He’s not interested in the festival, no matter how many times his grandmother, his bubbe, asks him to contribute one of his sculptures.

Then Sarah comes tumbling into his life…can she change his mind about more than just the holidays?

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Miracles and Menorahs by Stacey Agdern

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


What an enjoyable and insightful read. Miracles and Menorahs was my first book by Stacey Agdern. I will definitely look into reading more of her titles. While I don’t personally celebrate Hanukkah, I loved and connected with this book. I especially loved the characters of the town of Hollowville and how most of them came together to help make the annual Hanukkah celebration a success. The author describes the small NY town in detail with such entertaining narrative that I felt truly connected to the town and the story. I loved learning about the traditions of Hanukkah in a way that I hadn’t before. This book was beautifully written and a gem for anyone who loves small-town holiday romance.

As romances go, the relationship growth between Sarah and Isaac is very slow and doesn’t culminate until the end of the book. But I appreciated the slow build because otherwise this book wouldn’t have been so realistic. There are many secondary characters that help to move the story along, each bringing a certain depth. While this book was just a touch angsty, all the characters (except one ignorant antagonist) were loyal, mature, and friendly.

As you’ve learned from the blurb, Sarah is in charge of the annual Hanukkah festival this year. While she is honored and excited to make the festival a success, there is a great deal of pressure and worry that she will fail. This year could be the last for the festival and that can’t happen. Sarah continues to work toward her goal of making sure every aspect of the festival is successful. But what would be the best offering, a giant sculpted metal menorah for the town square, may not happen.

Isaac loves Hanukkah but not the commercialism of it. He will not contribute to a festival whose goal is to only make money. Isaac is devoted to age-old traditions and this is why he refuses to help. So, you have to wonder how Sarah and Isaac even become friends. As I said earlier in my review, the characters are mature as well as charming, friendly, and considerate.

I definitely recommend this sweet story; it is sure to inspire in many ways. This is my honest and unbiased review and I that you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

She’s the first woman to tempt him to lower his carefully constructed walls…

Aspiring screenwriter Jade McCall looks at every temp job as inspiration for her next screenplay. Her latest boss, nicknamed the “Realtor to the Stars,” is sit-com gold: handsome, rich, charismatic and intensely brooding. But it’s his intelligence, dry humor and thoughtfulness that reels her in deeper than she’s ever been.

Mega-successful real estate broker Zachary Masters revels in his prestigious reputation—and why not? He wrote his own story, and hides the truth of his past behind the glamorous facade of his success. Jade intrigues him from the start, and soon he’s tempted to take their agreed upon fling to the next level. But then Jade’s career takes off, sending her home to Montana.

He thinks he’s lost her for good, but the consequences of their brief affair create an unexpected second act. Zach never thought he’d have a shot at a real family until Jade returns with a secret of her own.

Review:

 

All the Stars in Montana (Property Sisters of Montana, #3)All the Stars in Montana by Debra Salonen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
All the Stars in Montana by Debra Salonen is the third book in the Property Sisters of Montana series. A lot of this book takes place in California. That said, I was a bit disappointed in that because I believed the book would primarily take place in Montana. It bothered me a little that Jade didn’t want to make Montana her permanent home instead of splitting time between the two states. That aside, I enjoyed the story.

I met Jade in the the first book. From the times she was on the pages, I inferred that she would be a strong, independent character. She had goals and a strong determination to succeed. Her career was first and foremost in her mind. Even her relationship with Zach was supposed to remain casual. The more time she and Zach spent together, Jade’s feelings grew into love. But how would she make the relationship work when Zack was in California and she was constantly traveling between the two? And would Zach want anything more than casual. He has a couple of secrets and is worried how Jade will react if he tells her.

I have read this author many times before. The writing is clear and engaging and her characters are likable. This book has a bit of angst but not so much to be a nail-biter. I enjoyed the premise, and interactions between all the characters. I especially enjoyed watching Zack fall in love. The way he treated Jade was beautiful. Jade couldn’t help falling in love with him. I, myself, fell in love with Zach.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Can a fun-filled activity list from the past help to create a new future?

Art teacher Harley Welsh is charmed by her newest student—a little girl whose shyness disappears the second her hands are covered in clay or paint. Moving wasn’t easy for Nadia so to help her, Harley resurrects the countdown to the Great Pumpkin Patch—a must-do fall activity list from her childhood. She’s determined to show Nadia and her family how wonderful life in Crossvine Creek is. But Harley didn’t plan for Nadia’s father to be single, distractingly handsome and everything she’s running from.

New high school football coach Josh McBride is hoping a smaller town will give him more time to focus on his children. While his son is adjusting to the move, his daughter is struggling. Harley’s offer to help via a fun, seasonal-themed activity list is a welcome gift. Her love for the town is infectious, and soon his kids aren’t the only ones falling under her spell.

But Josh can’t help but wonder…what happens when they reach the end of the list?

My Review: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts (The Welsh Sisters, #2)Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts by Sasha Summers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So sweet; this book was very enjoyable for several reasons. First, the characters are wonderful and help move this book along steadily. While the relationship development between Harley and Josh is slow; I didn’t mind. There is so much going on in this book aside from a romance that I was completely engaged. It was wonderful to watch.

Josh is a widower and moved his small family to Crossvine Creek in the hopes he will be able to focus more on his two young children. Josh has a son and a younger daughter, Nadia, who is painfully shy around most people. Nadia is not engaging in school and wants nothing more than to stay home. Fortunately, Harley is one of the very few people that Nadia feels comfortable around due in part to their mutual love of art. Harley is a wonderful character; her heart is big and she is selfless and nurturing. Her capacity to love is one of the things that make her an endearing heroine. She is so easy to fall in love with. So then why is Josh a grump when it comes to Harley? You’ll just have to read their story to find out.

Another aspect I absolutely loved about this book is the Fall theme. The small town of Crossvine Creek goes out of their way to celebrate this time of year with fun activities and festivals. The citizens who we meet in the book are a great addition and contribute to make this an even better book. Harley and her family are perfect. I felt such a strong connection to them all.

This book is smoothly written and you’ll be at the end before you know it. I won’t give any details away but I can tell you that watching the McBride family welcomed was so sweet. Crossvine Creek is definitely a town I can’t wait to read more about.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
