About the Book:
Press play on happily ever after in this charming, heartfelt holiday rom-com.
Nick Winters and Noel Carter have known each other their whole lives. After years of shared family holidays, working together on the Winters’ Christmas tree farm, and being each other’s safe haven, they wouldn’t dream of crossing the line from friends to something more….
But when Nick comes home for the holidays after serving overseas and finds that his long-term girlfriend has decided to get her stocking stuffed elsewhere, Noel is there to pick him up and show him that instead of a Blue Christmas he can still have a Wonderful Christmastime without his cheating ex.
A night on the town and an impulsive kiss later has Noel thinking that perhaps this year they’ll be rockin’ around the Christmas tree as a couple, but only if the ghost – er rather – girlfriend of Nick’s Christmas past doesn’t decide to haunt their holiday….
1/21 of my 2021 Christmas Read goals.
This was a fun Second-Chance Holiday Romance read. I loved Noel’s character, how she was tough on the exterior, protecting all her insecurities and loneliness. Her relationship with Nick and his family is so precious. They keep pulling her in and she works hard to keep her distance. Her relationship with men, in general. She enjoys them for what she needs and doesn’t get her heart involved. Then comes the day where her protective bubble pops and she has to determine how she will move forward in life.
This story was funny (I especially liked their side-kick protective friends), sweet (Nick’s family are sweethearts) and sentimental (all the pieces with Noel’s parents had me in tears).
It also has characters you will love to hate and a perfectly wonderful, heart-warming ending.
There are so many songs mentioned throughout the story and in the end is a ‘Playlist’ of all the songs mentioned. That was a fun ‘extra’ in the book.
This one definitely belongs on your Christmas Romance shelf!
