It is no secret that I love Candis Terry’s Sweet, Texas series. Cowboys, family, and a sweet romance make this series delightful. Terry makes it all the sweeter with her small-town Texas, setting. Therefore, it only makes sense that I had to add Sweet Cowboy Christmas to my Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon reads. I am so glad that I did. Chase and Faith were sweet, and despite it being, a novella Terry gave us a sweet slow-building romance.
When I saw the cover of Home for the Holidays, I accepted it without even reading the blurb. Have I mentioned my weakness for holiday themed covers and stories? Turns out this novella is part of the Cavanaugh Island series by Rochelle Alers. Thankfully, it worked beautifully as a standalone and turned out to be a foodie book complete with recipes! Score!
Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand has us spending Christmas with the Quinn family in Nantucket. Every year the B&B hosts a huge Christmas Eve party, complete with Santa. The inn is usually booked, and all of the children come home, but this year is proving to be anything but normal. Hilderbrand takes us into this dysfunctional family and shares with us the chaos of family, love and the holiday season.
I have loved reading Sarah Morgan’s O’Neil Brothers series. I started the series last year with Sleigh Bells in the Snow during the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-thon so it was only fitting that I ended it with Maybe This Christmas during this year’s read-a-thon. Some of my favorite romances are small-town, family oriented like Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series and Bella Andre’s Sullivans. Morgan offered up wonderful brothers, a ski resort in Snow Crystal, Vermont and just the right amount of heat for a chilly winter’s night.
Are you looking for a little something different to read this holiday season? Silent Night by C.J. Kyle offers up a suspenseful thriller set in the small town of Christmas, Tennessee. It comes complete with a serial killer, a woman on a mission and a sexy police chief trying to protect the innocent. Suspenseful with a side dish of slow-burning romance Silent Night, was an engaging holiday read.
