Christmas was tough for widow Jenna Wheeler and her four children. But even though she’d sold part of her family’s land to make ends meet, she was determined to spin the holiday into the stuff of magic—no matter what it took. Now if she could only find a job….
Maybe her new landlord could oblige—gorgeous, child-averse Carson McRaven. He needed a chef, and he knew the lovely Jenna could do a bang-up job—if only she could keep her brood out of his hair. But as he found himself catapulted into the cheerful chaos of her family…not to mention Jenna’s arms… he learned more about the spirit of Christmas than he’d ever dreamed.
I thought this book was a breath of fresh air for a sweet winter time romance. Harlequin hardly ever fails me with a sweet story with characters in the story that actually seem like real people. They have problems that are believable and the authors writing made the characters have chemistry. I loved the interaction of Carson with Jenna’s children and how he came to love all of them.
The book is set around Christmas time, but the romance will keep you captivated anytime of the year. Even the cover looks like the actual characters described in the book. It all falls into place perfectly and leaves you with a feel-good feeling after reading it. The steamiest it gets is a hot kiss, but if you are just looking for a sweet romance, then this is it. A new author to add to my ever-growing favorite author’s list!
