Her Christmas Protector Broken Prince

I’m currently reading Her Christmas Protector by Geri Krotow and Broken Prince by Erin Watt. I’ve just started both books, so I don’t have an opinion on them yet.

Paper Princess Sleigh Ride with the Single Dad

I finished Paper Princess by Erin Watt and what I can say is-it’s addictive!  I also finished Sleigh Ride with the Single Dad by Alison Roberts and it was a solid start to the series.

Her secret Christmas wish

Dr. Grace Forbes’s dramatic first day in Manhattan Mercy ER is unforgettable—especially when she runs into her old flame, ER chief Charles Davenport, again!

That spark is still there between them but they’re different people now—after losing his wife, Charles is a single dad to adorable twin boys, while Grace has survived cancer but lost her dream of having children. Yet, as the weather gets colder, she is drawn into the warmth of his family—could he make her Christmas wish come true?

ROMANCE TBRPile

mythoughts

Grace and Charles met years ago, when they were both studying medicine. After spending a night together their life went separate ways due to certain circumstances. When Grace started her new job, her first day in Manhattan Mercy ER was a very challenging day and in addition to that she also ran into Charles. They still have the spark between them, but so many years later, they both have a difficult past to overcome. 

It’s the first book in Christmas in Manhattan and it was a solid start to the series. I like the setting in New York and also the second chance romance and the adorable twin boys. It was a great book about finding happiness even if life has thrown difficult hardships on your path. It was a heartwarming and heartbreaking book at the same time.

mythoughts

Millie was invited to co-present Claudia Croft’s famous Festive Feast cookery course at Stonelea Manor. It gives Millie a great opportunity work-wise, but she also gets to meet with Zach, whom she previously met in the Caribbean. The feelings are still there and seeing Zach once again in  Cotswolds, will there be a future for the two of them?

It’s the first book I read in the The Paradise Cookery School series and even though it can be read as a standalone, I wish I had read the two previous books as well, just to have more background on the characters as this was a wonderful Christmassy story. I found the main characters as much as the secondary characters wonderful and the setting was fantastic too. It’s a great book full of romance, friendship and culinary delights. I’d gladly recommend this book for the holiday season.

The Widow Next Door Sleigh Ride with the Single Dad

I’m reading The Widow Next Door by L. A. Detwiler and so far I am not impressed, but I’m going to continue and will see how it goes. Sleigh Ride with the Single Dad by Alison Roberts is a sweet medical romance, I’m enjoying the book so far.

blurb

Getting cold feet isn’t unusual, except…I’m not the bride!

I’m Kelsey Wilson, the wedding planner. My job is to make sure my cousin’s nuptials go off without a hitch—my business depends on it! But how am I supposed to do that with Connor McClane back in town?

The drop-dead-gorgeous P.I. has his reasons for making sure this wedding doesn’t happen. Problem is, now he’s got me thinking about that once-in-a-lifetime walk down the aisle. Which is crazy—Connor and I couldn’t be more wrong for each other. Then why does it feel so right when he takes me in his arms?

I’d better watch out. Or the next wedding I plan just might be my own!

ROMANCE speedyread2100 

mythoughts

Kelsey is a wedding planner, who is planning her cousin Emily’s wedding. Kelsey lost her mom at a young age and was raised by her aunt’s family. She was use to a simple lifestyle, but her aunt lived a totally opposite lifestyle. Now that she’s planning her cousin’s wedding, she hopes to become a successful wedding planner. She didn’t expect to have any obstacles on the way, but when Connor, who is Emily’s ex, comes to town, everything she had planned, seems to change. Connor is convinced that Emily doesn’t actually want to get married and that her fiancee Todd is not the gentleman he seems. Connor and Kelsey get closer during the investigation of Todd and it seems that the next wedding she plans, might be hers instead.

I have mixed feelings about this book, I liked Kelsey and Connor, but didn’t really care for Kelsey’s aunt and that side of the family. It seemed like Emily and Connor’s relationship in the past was blown into a bigger problem than it actually was. It was a decent read and I’ll probably pick up the next book in the series to see how I like that one.
