Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Christmas Grove, where holiday magic and matchmaking is in the air.

When Rex Holiday walks into the charming town of Christmas Grove, all he plans to do is to spend the season helping out at his buddy’s Christmas tree farm. What he doesn’t expect is for an overzealous matchmaker to slip a love potion into his cider. But the joke’s on the resident matchmaker, because not even a potent love spell can break through the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the girl next door catches his eye, some of his barriers start to crumble. Still, Rex Holiday’s time in Christmas Grove is only temporary. He can’t afford to fall in love. Or can he?

Holly Reineer is a powerful spirit witch who can see the future for everyone. Everyone but herself that is. And when Rex Holiday walks into her life, she sees his, too. He’s destined for a big corporate job all the way across the country. So when he starts to show interest in her, she knows it’s only temporary, and Holly’s not interested in a fling. She wants her happily-ever-after. But he’s very hard to resist...Can a love spell rewrite the future? If so, Holly will need to learn to follow her heart and, for once, trust what she can’t see.

Love it

Awesome story. Absolutely loved it! This book falls after the Keating Hollow series. Which you should read too hint hint. Rex and Holly are great characters who go through a lot of ups and downs. Can’t wait for the next one. Narration was wonderful. She does great switching between the male and females.

Couple goals!

Rex and Holly have a true spark. Yes, it may have started with a love spell but it builds to so much more. The range of motion that Deanna Chase takes you through on this journey is wide and heart touching. I loved how the relationships develop and build, and the forgiveness that we see both characters go through. Christmas Grove sounds like a place I would love to be! The teaser at the end of the story has me wanting to devour the next book. Gabra Zackman does a fabulous job with the voices and an easy transition into characters. I would definitely recommend this book!

Great start for a new series

A wonderful start to a new series.

Holly didn't appreciate the love spell sent out as she stared up at the big Christmas tree. The man near her was gorgeous, Rex, best friend of her neighbor. She didn't need a man, especially one who was only here for a short while. He was an earth witch helping with Zach's Christmas Tree farm.

Fighting the attraction wasn't working for either of them. Could they deal with a short term relationship?

The world of modern regular people witches the author has created makes for wonderful characters. The two people are torn between their need for each other and past experiences. One travels and one needs to stay in her hometown around her friends. Rex is leaving after the holidays. Holly's been left before. Are their feelings strong enough and their reasoning right enough to let them have each other--for a time--knowing there is an end around the corner?

The characters are endearing. The banter fun. An overall satisfying audio story. I loved the narration as well as the story.

A witch for Mr. Holiday by Deanna Chase

Absolutly lovely!! It grips your emotions, I felt like I was in the story myself, I felt sad, happy and furious whenever the characters felt that way. It is such a nice story of two people who fell in love and this is every girls dream to find love such as this. I loved that it was a romcom, laughed so much. Gabra Zackman is also an amazing audio reader, I had no trouble listening to her and finishing the book. I would not mind listening to her work again. I definatley reccomend Deanna Chase's work especially if you like sweet, romantic, paranormal and funny love storys. I do like the fact that it has a paranormal factor to it, makes things interesting. I can not wait to listen to the sequel, I am in full anticipation after the ending.

Feel good holiday story

As I was listening I could picture this as a Hallmark Christmas movie. The characters were interesting. I love the town. Sweet with a little heat. The narrator did a great job. Her voice kept my attention and it was easy to tell the different characters. I'm looking forward to book 2.

Great Christmas romance!

I loved this book! Like real life, Holly and Rex have both experienced heartache from the ones they loved. As Christmas is approaching, both decide to give a relationship a try, no matter how short it may be. There are so many heart warming events and I found myself awwwing out loud more than once. Can't wait for book 2 to come out!
