"A Texas Holiday Miracle" by Linda Warren

Author's Book Description : Christmas is for real

Moving to Horseshoe, Texas, to become guardian of her half sister has been rewarding for Lacey Carroll. But raising a six-year-old-especially one who has stopped believing in Santa Claus-has its challenges. Lacey’s goal is to bring holiday wonder back into the child’s life, which isn’t going to be easy with a grinch like Gabe Garrison next door. The man is mean, rude…and hurting.

After losing his son, Gabe shut out the world. But his privacy is invaded by the quirky, dynamic blonde and her kid sister, who are single-handedly filling his solitary life with love. When Lacey enlists him in a holiday campaign for Emma’s sake, he can’t resist. Will Lacey’s unique brand of healing magic make this a season of second chances-for all of them?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Two sisters help their neighbor overcome his grief while getting through their own and dealing with the holiday season.

I found this novel to be very sweet and touching. Especially with the way, Lacey goes about helping Gabe get over his debilitating loss of his son while Emma keeps them both in the present with her views about Santa. I liked them all together. I just wish I liked the last 25% of the novel just as much as I liked the rest of the book. As I understand why Gabe had to go away, yet I wish it could have gone over better than it did. In addition, once Gabe finally understands what he really wants I didn’t like the way Lacey seemed to just accept it, even if it was because she wanted him back in her life.

Overall, I still recommend this novel to those who like to read about holiday contemporary romances.

Book Teaser(s) :
"I'm hopeless."
"Have you never cooked?"
Her eyes narrowed, and he was expecting a whole lot of attitude, but she replied, "Not really."
The eyes narrowed even more. "Don't push your luck. I'm not in a good mood."
"I'm just asking a question."
"I liked it better when you were quiet."
He leaned forward. "I know very little about you. Is your mother still living?"
She laughed, a bubbly sound that lifted his spirits.
"What's so funny?"
She pointed a finger at him. "You wanting to talk." ~ within Chapter 10
