Title: A Gift For Santa
Author: Beth Carpenter
Genre: Holiday Romance, Romance
Summary: It’s the season for giving…and starting over?
A reindeer farm without Santa wouldn’t be Christmas in Marissa Gray’s Alaskan hometown. Luckily Chris Allen’s there to pinch-hit, although for Marissa, seeing her ex-fiancé again brings back memories of what might have been.
Ten years after their breakup, the feelings between the wildlife biologist and blue-eyed fisherman are stronger than ever. Only now there’s a foster kid in the mix, as well as the shocking crime that cost Marissa her job and her family’s security. She and Chris need to find their way to a meeting of minds and hearts to make this truly a season for second chances…
I am a sucker for a holiday romance. Seriously. I am also a sucker for a good Harlequin romance. I don’t know why, but ever since I was a kid and would sneak them away from my mum’s collection I’ve been in love with that damn diamond symbol.
This book is lovely. It’s got scandal, past love, classic love that lasts a life time, loving families and cute little kids.
It’s got Santa in it.
That is all I needed to know, to know that I needed to get my hands on a copy of it. It’s a good book to read by the fire if you’ve got one, or one of those space heaters that looks like it’s got a fire in it if you don’t.
Do not set things on fire to read this book by. A blanket for warmth will do, because this book will provide the rest. I’m not kidding. This is your fire safety message kids.
Kids also maybe you shouldn’t read this book.
I’ve gotten a little loopy as we approach the end of the year so please forgive me. It’s five hours and counting.
This book is a good way to spend some of those hours because Marissa is awesome. She is smart and hurt, and I could kick some ass on her behalf if I could. Chris is also awesome.
This book is just awesome, the setting is Alaska, the town is basically the North Pole and Beth Carpenter’s writing is spot on. At no point did I feel like this book was overly contrived, nor was I rolling my eyes at any of the plot points.
Received a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
