Christmas Present by Lori Foster
Beth Monroe is a woman confused about
herself and her life. With the realization that she does not
know herself or the people around her as well as she thought,
Beth sets out for revenge and gets more than she bargained
for. If she can forgive herself, the future will be a lot
brighter. Courtesy of Levi, her ex-fiancťís best friend, the
Christmas cheer will be hotter.
The Christmas Present is a
story that has me believing in karma. Lori Foster kept me
flipping from anxiety to laughter. All the characters are
well drawn, but Beth and Levi touched my heart. Ms. Foster
kept my attention and did not release it. The Christmas
Present is a most enjoyable story.
Wonderful Life by Karen Kelley
Actor Jeremy Hunter wants a more serious
acting career and will do whatever he has to do to research
the role of a lifetime. Temptation comes in many forms when
you least expect it. Bailey Tanner takes one look at Jeremy
and feels the temptation as well. Will their love survive his
Itís a Wonderful Life tells
the tale of deliberately mistaken identity and the
possibilities developed therein. As I read, I alternated
between wanting to shake Jeremy, hoping that he works it out
with Bailey, and wanting to see him get his just rewards.
Karen Kelley fills the story with moments that not only made
me laugh but made me wish I could help the characters out
before the Ďtrain wreckí moment I knew was coming.
Home for Christmas by
Lulu Cahill is having the worst Christmas
ever with her empty wallet and philandering boyfriend. Then
she meets Sebastian Moore, who has just been jilted and needs
someone to fill in for his bride.
Home for Christmas gives a
glimpse of the possibility of love at first sight. Dianne
Castell has written a tale of two people who have fallen in
lust at first sight, and come to realize it may be more than
what they are ready for. Ms. Castell throws in an
overprotective and interfering family in the mix that makes
you realize you are not as much in control of your life as you
think you are. Home for Christmas is a tale of
hope and self-sacrifice that made me smile and wish I could be
in the story to help out with all the details that the family
takes care of.
Iím Your Santa are three
well-crafted stories of romance set around Christmas time.
All three are well written with a nice mix of laughter,
romance and moments of tension. They make you smile and keep
your mind occupied for an afternoon. Iím your Santa
is a very entertaining and amusing book.
