Publisher's Summary

James Fulton is not a nice man. His dad taught him to destroy things, and he enjoyed doing it. When he was kicked out of Harvard for cheating, he could have taken it as a wake up call. 

He didn't. 

Paisley finds joy in simple things: snow cones, roller skates, kids. She doesn't have an ambitious bone in her body, but her friends don't mind. She cheers them on when they're up and supports them when they're down. Everyone loves Paisley, and for good reason. 

She's always there when you need her. 

When Paisley and James meet at a friend’s wedding, no one expects sparks to fly. They're far too different to ever be a good fit. 

Everyone is wrong. 

But Paisley has a secret. Something none of her friends know. When that secret calls her home, she must face all the things she has ignored. She needs help to survive, but asking for it will expose the truth she has been hiding. 

Her family has a debt, and to her great dismay, the debtor is business piranha James Fulton.

Great Christmastime Love Story

I have read this book twice already and was excited to have it as an audio book to keep me company while I putter around the house. This author includes great friendships, complicated family dynamics and loss and heartache in an uplifting story of love, hope, forgiveness and change. I've loved Paisley for several books now and I love getting to finally know her background and to see her bring out the best in yet another person. She is awesome! I have listened to several books narrated by Araya, but this was my first one with a male author and Crais has a great voice for the irresistible James Fulton.

Sweet story of finding out who you are

This is the 2nd audiobook I have listened to by Mrs. Baker. We got to reconnect with some of the characters from Finding Liberty and met some new ones as well.

I liked the "journey to self discovery " feel from both Paisley and James' characters. I knew of Paisley from Finding Liberty, but really got to know her in this book. We got to see her struggles, her pain, her growth and watch her overcome. James was an interesting character from the beginning. I felt like I got to watch him grow, open up and let go throughout the book.

There was a good, flow between the storyline and the readers of the book. I had trouble "putter the book down". I am looking forward to reading more in this series!

Engaging story

Paisley and James are near the top of my favorites list for this series. I enjoyed the distinction in the voices because of the different languages in the story, sometimes that is not as well accomplished. But James' tone is almost how I heard it in my mind when I first read the book last year. And Paisley is very similar to what her dramatic is when reading. I enjoyed the listen, maybe mostly because I really like the story, but it was definitely worth the time.
The author does an impeccable job of making characters that are not every day people (because truly how many of us know a princess or a billionaire?) very relatable. I was hoping for the best for these two from the beginning. And they had to work through tough situations, but persevered. You won't regret having this, or any of the Finding Home books in your library.

MY TAKE
How does this series just keep getting better?

First about the book. I didn't expect to like James. Not at all. And that's Baker's fault. She made him the villain in Trudy and Paul's love story. And Baker did a dang good job of it. The blurb above tells it very well in her description of James. She called him a piranha but Paisley liked calling him a hawk. But it turned into an endearment. He became "her hawk."

Because that's the thing. Baker doesn't write two dimensional characters. Even the villains. There's so much more to James Fulton than we thought. At least for his motivations, some even he didn't understand. There are hints about his character that I wanted to ignore, from Luke the husband of Paisley's boss. With him, James proved a loyal friend even when he was working to get revenge on Luke's brother. See, James has some really twisted and misplaced views on things. But Luke's right. Deep down, James is a good man. And I'm all about stories of redemption!

Then there's Paisley. Oh, boy, does that girl have quite the secret. I won't go into the particulars of that because ... secret. Let's just say it was a surprise with a TWIST.

*Happy sigh*

I listened to the audiobook and the narrators were fab as usual.

Love Paisley and James!

Finding Holly is the perfect holiday romance with sweet and endearing characters. Bridget E. Baker continues to amaze with her well written characters that have so much background and depth. Add that to an intriguing plot, and you have once again another winner. Connor Crais and Jennifer Jill Arraya narrate. Paisley has been introduced throughout the previous novels, but her background has always been a mystery. She works as Mary’s assistant, is brilliant, and could find a better job, but is completely happy with her life in Atlanta. Her brother Cole comes to visit to tell her that their father is ill, and she needs to come home to visit. Home is in another country. Paisley meets James at Mary and Luke’s wedding and they instantly hit it off. Paisley gives James her number, but she never hears from him again until they meet by again by chance. Is it fate? Will James keep Paisley’s secret? This audiobook is narrated in dual narration. Connor and Jennifer’s voices really compliment each other. Connor does a fabulous job portraying a wealthy businessman with no relationship experience.. Plus, his Australian accent is amazing! Jennifer does a great job with Paisley, and her male voices with all the different accents are spot on! Bridget E. Baker has written a wonderful story that is a joy to listen to during the Holiday season. I’m looking forward to the next book in the story.

Like a breath of fresh air! Totally entertaining

I must first say that I am extremely pleased by the masterful narration. Jennifer Jill Araya and Connor Crais deliver fantastic performances, as they have done in each previous audiobook in this marvelous series. They are two of the most talented and consistently excellent narrators today.

I love the heroine Paisley, and her guy Jim was lovable too. Jim is the first hero in the series with some morality issues since he really holds grudges. I waver between giving it 4 and 5 stars because there was a little too much lack of communication that seemed a little contrived and unnatural. Still, it squeaked in with 5 stars. I do love the crazy mix of tropes that all got melded together in this: millionaire, fake relationship, secret identity (for Paisley), and even a wild Christmas-related theme. A few revelations made me go "WTF" in a good way. The chemistry, the supporting friendships, and the family themes were all great. The little taste of living like a rich person was really fun, like a vacation from my life. There is lots to love in this audiobook. I was slightly irritated that these two main characters communicated a lot in some ways but hardly at all about their feelings toward each other. However, I was totally hooked and couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this fun contemporary romance and the entire series as well!

I requested and received a free audiobook copy from the author via #AudioBookfly, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Another fabulous addition to the series

Great addition to the series. I love the real characters with real problems and life experiences. I love keeping up to date with people from other books in the series as they interact with Paisley & James. Bridget E. Baker writes in a way that connects to me instantly and these narrators really bring the people to life.

Brilliant book

I love this series and was so happy to find them on audible, I can listen while I’m working, this one I listened to while hiking. The story is just amazing, I was hooked from the first chapter, Paisley and James have some turbulence which made me want to listen without stopping, the voice actors do the story justice I was never bored. I’m going to get the rest of the series on audible as soon as possible.
