One Christmas can change your life...
Kyle Houseman believes he'll never find anyone he could love as much as Olivia Arnold, who's now married to his stepbrother. Not only did he lose her, he's been through one divorce and has no desire to go through another. He's determined to be extra careful about the next woman he gets involved with—which is why he fights his attraction to the beautiful stranger who rents his farmhouse for the Christmas holiday.
Lourdes Bennett is a country music artist. She's only planning to stay in Whiskey Creek long enough to write the songs for her next album—the album that's going to put her back on top. Her dreams don't include settling in a town even smaller than the one she escaped. But as she comes to know Kyle, she begins to wonder if she'd be making a terrible mistake to leave him behind.
Gah, this was a really great book! And we're getting down to having very few single people in this town around this group's age, which I think means that the series is coming to a close, but maybe not, there could be a second generation thing, or something!
I really enjoyed reading about these characters! Kyle's been deserving of a happy ending since the series started in the 0.5 book staring his stepbrother, and the girl that he loved. And Lourdes? New character, but a really great addition to the series, I really enjoyed reading about her!
There are always complications to any relationship, especially one that started off with the characters being where they were-him dealing with his ex-wife, and her dealing with trying to come up with her comeback, and not really interested, or wanting to be interested in, distractions like a relationship (especially since she was kinda dating her manager!)
That ending was pretty awesome! Some really awesome moments in there, with the happiness, and things working out, that was just really great! I really enjoyed their happy ending, and how they had worked for it, and got it!
Such a really great addition to the series, but hopefully not the end, there are still a few more single people their age in Whiskey Creek!
