Have Yourself A Christiansen Christmas

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis

It’s Christmas in the winter wonderland town of Deep Haven, and the Christiansen kids are all heading home for the holidays. But no one feels very merry.

  • Grace is worried about her husband’s life-changing illness…
  • Eden is facing devastating news…
  • Casper is in over his head (of course!)…
  • Amelia is dodging a walk down the aisle…
  • Owen…well, Owen just nearly died, again…
  • But it’s Darek who has news that just might destroy the family legacy.

The trip home for all is filled with secrets, memories and old dreams. But when they discover the real reason they’ve been asked home for the holidays, it will shake their world. It’ll take a disaster for them to discover that home is the place for answers, hope and most of all…miracles.
This year, spend Christmas with your favorite small town family.

I loved the Christiansen family series when I first read it years ago. So when I saw that Susan May Warren was returning to this family I was so excited.

This was a fantastic book, but let me first say it is definitely not a rom com. This book is real, raw and a little gritty in the best way. Yes the book does have a happy ending, the journey to get there is filled with trials and a desperate need for God to intervene.

I loved seeing this family again even if reading their story made me bawl.

If you want a book that doesn’t gloss over the hard moments of life, check out this series and this book,

#TheLeftoverBride

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Synopsis

All Sorcha O’Connor wants for Christmas is for her life to turn into a Hallmark movie—but sexier. Ryan Sawyer has a few things on his wishlist, such as staying away from Swans Cove and getting his career back on track. And he wants Sorcha. Always has, always will. When wedding dress designer Sorcha O’Connor got stranded at the altar and went viral as #TheLeftoverBride, she lost her fiancé, her thriving business, and her dreams. To forget the upcoming first anniversary of that fateful day, Sorcha is ticking items off her “31 Things to Do Before the 31st” list and working day and night to get her life back on track. Not on her list? Falling for her former best friend, Ryan Sawyer. Again. Ryan Sawyer skated out of Swans Cove right out of high school. Since then, he busted his ass, making sure he always had the perfect excuse to stay away: hockey. But even his own hashtag, #HockeyHottie, couldn’t keep his injuries from possibly shattering his career. With the holidays and his mother’s birthday coming up, Ryan’s back in Swans Cove for a quick visit. Even though he’s supposed to lay low, he can’t stop thinking about Sorcha, the redhead who knows him better than even his therapist. When Sorcha’s former #RunawayGroom becomes the Most Coveted Bachelor in America, virtual eyes turn to Sorcha again. This time, Ryan won’t bolt—even as Sorcha blurts out on national TV that both she and Ryan are working on their so-called “Happy Lists” over the holidays…together. Will the spotlight finally work in Sorcha and Ryan’s favor? Or will their past—and their hashtags—get in the way of their Happily Ever After?

When I saw this book I was immediately intrigued. I loved the concept of the book. This was a fun book to read. It cleverly and respectfully covered serious topics. I also loved how both perspectives of the story were shared. This book was a little more steamy than I typically like to read. But it was still an enjoyable book to read.

If you love romcoms and don’t mind a bit more steam then you should definitely check this book out.

Trusting In You

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Synopsis

Am I falling for my client? I plead the fifth. The moment Lucy James walks into my office, I know beyond a reasonable doubt that I’m in big trouble. Exhibit A: The way my heart kicks up a notch every time she looks at me. Exhibit B: The fierce need I have to help her and her neurodivergent teen brother, even though I’m already swamped and shouldn’t take on another case. Exhibit C: The fact that I can’t seem to get her off my mind long after she leaves. Once we sign on the dotted line, a relationship between us could get me disbarred. So even though she appears to be everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman, I know I need to stay far, far away. But helping Lucy means spending time in each other’s worlds. And now I have a feeling mine will never be the same.

I’m absolutely certain by now that you know how much I love Jess Mastorakos’ books. When I heard that Eric was getting his own book I was excited. It was great to be back in the world of the San Diego Marines; getting to see Vince and Sara and Spencer again. As well as hear a little about their lives.

I loved this book. There was so much to love that I’m not even sure where to begin. Lucy and Eric were fantastic characters. Even though this book was an insta-romance it was written well and their relationship progressed over a couple of months.

Probably my only negative was that I felt as if things were wrapped up too easily. Yes things didn’t go the way the couple expected, but the decisions they made could have had very serious consequences. It felt as if they got away with it.

Besides this, I really enjoyed the book. And as always if you haven’t read anything from Jess Mastorakos then you should definitely do so now. Her San Diego series is free on Kindle until the end of this week (28th November 2021).

Hooper Safe Haven – Blog Tour & Giveaway

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Hooper Safe Haven

About the Book

Book: Hooper Safe Haven

Author: Rachel Skatvold

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: October 26, 2021

Harbors should be safe havens, but what if you’re harboring secrets?

When Alicia Roberts accepts a job with mobile veterinarian, Kendall Mulligan, she hopes the Independence Islands will give her a safe place to start over. And as much as she appreciates the Mulligan girls’ offer to stay with them while she gets settled, Alicia knows she needs her own place. ASAP.

Hooper Ear Cove Apartments on Hooper Island offers a beautiful ocean view as well as one of the landlord’s hunky son—all at an affordable price. Just what she needs to start a new life. Isn’t it?

When life knocked Jace Young in the head with a literal curveball that ruined his major league chances, he was forced to return to Hooper Island and a job as the maintenance guy at his father’s apartment complex. On the side, he leads the contemporary song service at church as his heart heals.

When Alicia moves to Hooper Island, Jace is drawn in by her sweet personality. However, something hides deep beneath the surface, and Alicia resists any discussion of God. What will it take to convince her to anchor her heart to God and to confide the secrets she harbors?

Hooper Safe Haven continues the Hooper Island stories of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

My Review

This is another fantastic book from the Independence Islands series. I loved Alicia and Jace and the progression of their story. The medical side of the story was covered really well. But probably my favourite part of this book was the faith progression all the characters went through. Seeing someone’s faith progress is a huge inspiration and encouragement to read, even if they are fictional characters.

Read an Excerpt

Alicia Roberts leaned against the railing, watching the seagulls hovering above the ferry as it prepared to dock at the Merriweather slip. They were always waiting for something—tiny fish in the surf or tiny scraps the passengers left behind. In a way, she knew how they felt. Until now, she’d been waiting, too—although it was for something entirely different. She closed her eyes, enjoying the feeling of the wind whipping through her long brown hair. In deciding to work on the Independence Islands, had she finally found what she was waiting for? A new purpose? There was no turning back now. After graduating and moving out of her college dorm she had nowhere else to go.

The sound of the apron dropping to allow the cars and people off the ferry drew Alicia out of her ponderings. She approached her blue compact car, packed to the gills with all the belongings she owned and slipped into the driver’s seat as quickly as possible to avoid holding up the other passengers parked behind her. Within a few minutes, she drove up Captains Walk, spying a large RV parked in one of the lots. Kendall Mulligan greeted her the moment she parked and stepped out.

“Welcome back!” her auburn-haired friend exclaimed, pulling her into a tight embrace. “I’m so glad you decided to take the job.”

Alicia pulled back and offered a shy smile. “Me too. How could I turn down such a great opportunity right out of vet school?”

Kendall took her hand, pulling her along. “Here, come inside. There are breakfast sandwiches, pastries, and coffee from Granny’s inside. If we hurry, we’ll have a few minutes to enjoy them before patients start arriving.”

Her stomach rumbled as she followed Kendall up the steps to the mobile clinic. “That sounds wonderful. I forgot to eat this morning.”

“Now you sound like Carly. I always have to remind her to eat breakfast. She calls me a nag, but she’s hypoglycemic, so if I don’t keep on her, she can’t function very well in the morning.”

Alicia chuckled. “No one usually has to remind me. I can’t function without a bowl of oatmeal or some kind of protein first thing in the morning. I think my routine is just off with this new job and all, but I’ll adjust soon enough.” She paused, remembering something. “Speaking of Carly, I heard about her engagement to that billionaire. When’s the big day?”

Kendall shook her head with a slight roll of her blue eyes. “Next month, believe it or not.”

“Well, that was quick!”

“Yeah, tell me about it.” Her redheaded friend shrugged with a sigh. “I suppose when money is no object, a wedding can be whipped up pretty quickly, though. I never thought my little sister would get married before me. She’s always been so opposed to that kind of thing, but I guess when you meet the right one, why wait? I’m happy for them.”

“Me too. So, is that why she’s gone today? Wedding planning stuff?”

“Yeah, it’s going to be pretty crazy around here for the next month. She’ll be in and out of here a lot, but after the wedding she’s going to launch her new mobile art business with Luc. That’s why I’m so glad you could come and work with us.”

Garrett – Book Tour and Giveaway

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Garrett

About the Book

Book: Garrett

Author: Izzy James

Genre: Christian Romance

Release date: November 27, 2020

Garrett Tyler thought he was leaving Ballard House for home, secure in the knowledge that love had finally won-out for his long-time friend Olivia. He steps out the door and into the past, 1769 to be exact. While finding his bearings Garrett stumbles upon a beautiful woman being attacked. He makes sure she gets home and because of his kindness, she allows him to stay in an outbuilding—even believing his time travel story—while he figures out how he will get back to his life in the future. The more time they spend together, the deeper friendship they build, but one thing is going to rip her world apart.

Mercy Hansford is a confidant, independent woman running her own tailor shoppe. Her world is shaken when she is brutally attacked after delivering one of her sought-after shirts. The consequences of this night could be more far-reaching than either of them can guess.

Should Mercy trust a man she barely knows?

My Review

If you love time travel, Christmas and romance then here is a fun novella for you. This book is part of a series and I would definitely recommend reading Max before reading Garrett. I didn’t read Max first and there were some aspects of Garrett that I didn’t really understand. I would also say that this is an instalove story (everything happens very quickly over a matter of days) and so if you love that trope, then I am sure you will enjoy this book. I really enjoyed the concept of a modern person being transported to the past. I also found it interesting that Mercy was happy to believe Garrett’s story so readily.

More from Izzy

Why did I write Garrett?

While I was writing Max I was working through physical therapy prior to a lumbar fusion surgery. My physical therapist’s assistant was a young man named Garrett. He was intrigued that I was a writer and asked me if I would use his name in a book one day. So I had a name.

As I finished writing Max–who came forward in time from 1769–I started thinking about what it would be like for a young person of today to find himself back in 1769.

Garrett of the book bears no resemblance to Garrett of the physical therapy office! Garrett was fun to write. I hope you will enjoy reading it.

Christmas Bells of Creekside

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis

Can a young boy losing his sight help his mom see love and Christmas in a new light? Christmas isn’t something single mother, Noelle Monroe looks forward to this year. She already struggles to balance life while caring for her son who’s going blind. When her third nanny quits she must find someone or lose her job which would leave her financially drained. Loner, Keith Mitchell agrees to return home for the holidays to appease his estranged mother during a work furlough. Only the temporary situation turns into permanent unemployment, leaving him stuck in a town facing a past mistake that broke apart his family. An error that almost cost his sister her life. When Keith’s mother volunteers him to watch a young boy with visual challenges Keith knows he’s the wrong man for the job, yet the beautiful young neighbor needs help and the boy needs a male in his life. Keith and Noelle agree to a temporary arrangement through the season, but the boy has other plans. He’s on a mission to help his mother smile again, win a new dad, and save Christmas.

If you are looking for a sweet Christmas romance that definitely has Hallmark Channel vibes, then look no further. Ciara Knight’s new Christmas book ticks all the boxes. Christmas – yes; romance – yes; a struggling hero – yes; a single mum – yes. I really enjoyed the character development in this book even if it was quite a quick change. I love Christmas books and really enjoyed this story.

A Love Uncontainable

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis

Seven years ago I made a decision that would change my life forever… I’ve never told a soul. Now I’m worried my past could ruin my future. As a surgeon and single father, my life is chaotic. I barely have time to find a new babysitter or a new tenant for my income property, let alone think about dating. Sophie Windell seems like the answer to all of my problems—renting out my income property and babysitting my daughter. But now Sophie brings a whole new set of complications. I can’t stop thinking about how gorgeous she is, and how her laughter fills the house with joy. Not to mention our daughters adore each other. So, what’s the complicated part? Well, she’s still grieving the loss of her husband, and I work with her dad. And then there’s the secret I’ve held for seven years. If I tell her, will I lose everything she’s brought into my life? Or worse, will I hurt the woman I’m coming to love?

I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this book ever since I read the first book in the series, A Love Unexpected. And so the very minute I received my copy of the book I dove right in. And oh my goodness, I loved it just as much as the first book in the series. I cried (in the prologue), I laughed, I squealed, I swooned, I had the entire range of emotions. I love Sophie and Drew. I love Samantha and Penny. Honestly I just loved everything about this book.

I also really enjoyed the mentions of Madden and Odette (from the previous book) and what I am hoping are some hints about future books about Sophie’s brothers. This series is definitely one that has hooked me and dragged me into the world it is set in.

This book has a unique perspective on the single parent trope that you may not see coming. I loved that it was something I hadn’t really seen before.

If you have not already reading A Love Unexpected, grab it now so you can enjoy A Love Uncontainable as well. I know I’m already keen for the rest of the series.

My Review

I really enjoyed this romantic suspense novella. I loved the Christmas vibes with the Reindeer and snow as well as learning new information about the reindeer. I will say that this book is part of a larger series and although it can be read as a standalone I did feel like there were characters and storylines that I didn’t fully understand. Overall, I did enjoy this book and definitely look forward to reading more from Dana Mentink and I will go back and read the other books in this series.

More from Dana

Up on the housetop, click, click, click, down through the chimney with good St. Nick. Does anyone know that line from the famous Christmas song? I’ve been singing it for years but only recently did I learn that the clicking is a real reindeer phenomenon. Those reindeer ankle joints make a clicking sound so they can find the rest of their herd if they are separated in a blizzard. It’s just one of the many things I learned about reindeer while researching to write Yukon Justice. In the novel, Katy has to take over running her aunt’s reindeer ranch and protect it from threats by a dangerous intruder. I had the pleasure of “Zoom” interviewing the owner of the Running Reindeer Ranch in Fairbanks, Alaska! Jane helped me learn all kinds of interesting things about reindeer. How much do you know about these critters? Take my quick three question trivia quiz to test your knowledge!

  1. What’s the difference between caribou and reindeer? They are the same animal but caribou are the wild variety and the domesticated version are called reindeer.
  1. Do males or females grow antlers? Both! Reindeer are a type of deer and the only species where the female grows antlers as well as the males.
  1. How come kids put out carrots for Santa’s reindeer? Good question! Carrots are not, in fact, part of a natural healthy reindeer diet. The animals don’t even have front teeth! A much better treat would be willow or birch leaves, or their favorite food…lichen, which they find by scraping the snow away from the ground with their hooves.

So how did you do? If you want to know more about these amazing creatures, snag yourself a copy of Yukon Justice!

Shut The Front Door – Blog Tour & Giveaway

I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Shut the Door

About the Book

Book: Shut the Front Door

Author: L.M. Karen

Genre: Contemporary Christian Fiction

Release date: July 15, 2021

Ebook_ShuttheFrontDoor+02

The zany story of an alpha male pursuing a headstrong woman and the hilarious entanglements that follow.

Maddy’s dating profile couldn’t be more together. Maddy, however, feels utterly not together when Derek is in the room. She thought living next to her best friend Brittany, (who happens to be married to her brother, Matt) would be the best move of her life; not realizing it came with the complication of Brittany’s older brother Derek. Their undeniable chemistry and passionate personalities make it hard for Maddy to continue ignoring his determined pursuit. This is a feel good romantic comedy with a hint of excitement.

My Review

I loved this book. It was such a fun story. This book is the second in the Oak Street series. This book follows Maddy and Derek and clearly has elements of enemies-to-lovers. Honestly, there was so much to love about this book. I loved Maddy’s independence, Derek’s protective nature, Grady just being Grady and of course, seeing what was continuing to happen with Matt and Brittany. I also loved that, although this book is very much a contemporary romance, there is a sliver of suspense in the book. Another element that I appreciated was that although there were problems and concerns for Maddy and Derek to overcome, they spoke through things. Yes, there was anger and big reactions at times, but they still didn’t let too long pass before having a conversation and working through it all together. There was so much I loved about this book and I look forward to reading more from LM Karen.

About the Author

LM Karen writes contemporary Christian fiction romance. As a longtime lover of words, she can generally be found behind her laptop or with a book in her hand. A graduate of Toccoa Falls College, her heart is in the mountains. She eventually made use of the voices in her head by putting them on the page.

More from LM Karen

I like writing characters who are flawed but are loved anyway. Who have maybe made a mess of things, or are consumed by fear, or have some growing to do, because isn’t that all of us? All of my characters get happy endings because as Christians we all get the happy ending. We are flawed, we are human, we are sinful, but we are loved. We are forgiven.

One of my favorite things about Maddy in Shut the Front Door is that she is fearless. She is bold and unapologetic about who she is. But even Maddy with all her confidence still has insecurities about being accepted, and just wants to be loved at the end of the day. She just wants to know that she will be received for all she is by the one person she loves the most. I think that’s a very relatable desire and what we all really want. One of my favorite things about Christian fiction is that we are reminded within the fun and sweeping nature of romance that we are always and eternally loved by God.
