Publisher's Summary

Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages-and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised-suddenly seem - confining. Eve is worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband - until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve is definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after-just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life.

Contains mature themes.

Critic Reviews

"[Novack's] latest in the Whiskey Creek series is naughty and nice, and readers will fall in love with the magic of the season portrayed throughout." (Jamie A. Geraldi, RT Book Reviews)

Fun book

What I like about this author is the way her books keep me engaged in the story. She keeps each book separate but one keeps running into old characters which for me is so much fun.

DNF

Barely got through the first chapter. The narrator and character didn’t mesh well. I’ve listened to this narrator before and she works well for certain characters but she just ends up making the main character in this seem so (much more) annoying and that was only after one chapter (a 35 year old woman is mad because her one night stand won’t take her for coffee after???? girl it’s called a one night stand for a reason, grow up).

Another hit

This one was the first of this series that I could not even guess what was going to happen. Even to the end!

And of course, Carly Robins is excellent at the narration.

Love that Pretty Boy does good!

This is a wonderful tale of a happy accident leading to wonderful things. Another reminder to trust how you feel- not what you think or what others do.

Not for me

I know this is a popular series but could not get into this one. Not as good as some of her books.

Loved the book. Loved the storyline and characters. Narrator did fine except...

I wish they'd had someone double-check the Narrator's pronunciation of actual town names. Placerville was mispronounced multiple times and it was a bit distracting, each time.
