A season of hope . . .
‘Tis the season in Shenandoah Falls and the first time Willow Peterson has been home in years. But she’s determined to fulfill the wishes of her recently deceased best friend and restore Eagle Hill Manor to its former glory-all in time to host the perfect holiday wedding. She just has to get the owner of the historic inn to hire her. Unfortunately, that means dealing with Scrooge himself…
After the death of his wife, David Lyndon has a bah-humbug approach to Christmas. But as December counts down and the wedding planning is in full swing, it’s harder and harder to stay immune to the charms of Willow, especially when he sees how much joy she brings his eight-year-old daughter. After a simple kiss under the mistletoe turns into something more, David is hoping he can turn the magic of the holiday season into the love of a lifetime.
A Christmas Bride is an adorable and sweet romance. Even though the cover and title both scream Christmas romance, I would read this story any time of year. Young children in novels are typically either a great fit or they are rather annoying. Natalie was adorable and a great fit. Now David’s mother was a nightmare of a woman who I wouldn’t have been able to stand in the presence of without wanting to snap.
Mrs. M and her bridge club were my favorite part of the book, as well as Willow’s mother. The bridge club playing matchmaker and gossiping about David’s libido was hilarious. A Christmas Bride is the perfect combination of romance and comedy.
