About the Book:

Lucy Hannigan has inherited her mother’s bulldog, Bella, and her childhood home, the only pink house on Gingerbread Lane. With the holidays coming up, the pressure is on to decorate the house for the annual lights competition and maintain her parent’s winning streak. But Lucy already has her hands full as a midwife and a new landlord-to her ex-fiance.

When Miles Bruno is suddenly asked to move out of his rental home, he’s grateful to Lucy for taking him on as a tenant. But their broken-off engagement doesn’t make it easy to live next door. Sparks still fly between them, and he’d give anything to get back in Lucy’s good graces. But to do that will take much more than just tree trimming and house decorating and contest winning. Will one wildly grand romantic gesture on Christmas Eve finally soften her heart?

My Review:

2/21 of my 2021 Christmas Reading goals.

For fans of the Second-Chance and Small-Town Romance tropes, there is a new Christmas Romance coming out in October to add to your list!  While this is listed as a Book 2, it is not necessary to have read Book 1 as it reads well as a stand-alone.

The two main characters are sweet and likable. The story comes packed with the town gossip column, mis-understandings, old heartbreaks, Christmas display contests and a stack of super sweet characters.

As far as cozy Christmas love stories go, this one will provide several smiles throughout.

Thank you to #ReadForeverPub and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
