Publisher's Summary

Her attitude is less than merry and bright....

Melanie Harper and Christmas do not see eye to eye. While most people look forward to the holiday, it's something she's come to dread. So when she receives a house in the town of Silver Bell Falls as a gift, her immediate reaction is to reject it. After all, with a name like that, you're almost guaranteed to be surrounded by people who love Christmas!

He sees it as the most wonderful time of the year....

Josiah Stone is all about peace on earth and goodwill toward man. Maybe it's because he's the sheriff of a town named after a Christmas song, but that doesn't make it any less true. Christmas is his favorite time of year and living in Silver Bell Falls where everyone feels the same only adds to his festive outlook on life.

Can a white Christmas change everything?

When Melanie is forced to stay in Silver Bell Falls over the holiday, she's less than thrilled. But after meeting the sexy sheriff, she finds that there is something to be said about the magic of Christmas.

It's Ok

It was just ok for me, Josiah and Mel had so much potential. I like the stories setting and the characters for the most part but I missed the true connection the heat the chemistry between them.
Slow burn books are great if the connection of the characters is there. I just feel like we are missing a big part of the story when that connection isn’t there.

Overall it was ok, I might give this series one more book because usually, first books are focused on the world building.

The narration was ok, I enjoyed her male voice better than her Mel voice, her octave would go up in the middle of talking and I just didn’t see the point.

The Grinch’s Girl

This chick needs to say Bah-humbug at least onetime. Just. Once. But, I’m pretty sure she doesn’t. She has had a lot of bad luck in Christmas past. My heart just kept breaking when she talked about it. Everything that happened, it hurt.

When her grandmother leaves her this house, I felt like it was the best slap in the face. It’s so fun that she gets this house. And even better that the sherif is just next door. It’s kismet.

I’m in a very Christmas mood this November and this story was just perfect for it.

Perfect Christmas romance

Really enjoyed this story. It has the perfect amount of Christmas spirit, a well developed and not graphic romance and a believable storyline. Pair that with excellent narration and you have a Christmas gem. Recommended!!

Always a awesome story

Never disappointed in anything’s she writes. The narration was perfect. Modern day Grinch . Mel was forced to live in her grandmas home in a town all about Christmas which she hates . Can she find love in the town that drives her crazy?

No..

43% and I'm done!


I thought Josiah and Melanie talked so silly and immature. This Christmas story wasn’t for me. Sorry!

As to the narration: Her men’s voices just weren’t good. They sounded a little too feminine for me AND there’s nothing worse than a hero that sounds like a girl. Marietta DePrima needs a lot more practice before she can call herself a narrator. Sorry, again.

Great Easy Read

The narrator took a little to get used to, and the story took a couple chapters, but after that it was a great book. Easy read, reminds me of a Hallmark movie. Highly recommend and moving on to the next book in the series!

Cute

Overall this was a cute slow burn, sweet romance.

The story was cute, the couple’s connection was nice and absolutely adorable at times.

I would definitely read more stories like this when I’m in the right mindset.

The narrator has a nice voice (Marietta DePrima) but she has a bit of a lisp that can be hard to get past at times and some of the mouth noises made it into the production of the books which was a lite distracting at times.

Bah Humbug

I wanted to love this tale and I think the story was fun but sadly the narrator was simply to whiny and over the next op as female character it detracted from the story. I my actually read the story again to get the full impact of the liver story.

Narrator Killed this book

The storyline of this book was really good however the narrator sounded like an old woman at times and she just wasn’t good with the difference in the voices and stuff it drove me crazy the book was great just wish we had a different narrator

Good old fashioned romance

Great to read a chicklit book that isn't smutty. Not everyone wants to read "F... me hard" in a novel. Good storyline and narration.

Awful narration

This had everything I wanted, a small town like the one in Gilmore girls, cabin cabin, a tiny house, Christmas and a love story I really was looking forward to this book and I like Samantha chases other books very much. But this was ruined by Awful narration it sounded really lower class and like a Bronx accent or something accent I'm not familiar with American accent horrible I had to return the book
