An Angel for Christmas by Raine English
Alexa Stevens was married, had a house, had a job, had a daughter, had enough money to get by, and then everything went wrong. Her husband killed himself, she was laid off, she didn't know how she was going to make the rent, and didn't have enough money to buy groceries. How could she ever trust anyone? Her husband hadn't told her the truth about their circumstances and her boss had moved his company out of state, laying off employees. Didn't he know what he'd done and the effect it would have on the laid off employees? Alexa's daughter, 8 year old Cara, doesn't understand what is going on.
Alexa and her friend Sally talk about the owner of the company that laid them off and speculate what they would do if they could talk to the owner.
Blake Collins' wife left him for the pool boy after she spoiled their 10 year old daughter Britney to the point no one could do anything with her. Nannies had come and gone. None would stay. Can he convince Alexa to come work for him as his nanny to Britney? Can Alexa teach Blake that not all women are like his ex-wife?
I loved this story and the characters Alexa and Blake. A wonderfully sweet Christmas romance!
The Cowboy's Christmas Bride by Aileen Fish
Tara Goodwin planned to spend Christmas break with her best friend Cheyenne. She gets stuck in the snow and Dylan Frost rescues her. They have to spend the night in his cabin because he has a cow giving birth. Tara is an almost-graduate of vet school and helps with the delivery. I loved their bantering back and forth. Dylan's mother left him and his brothers when he was little and he hasn't forgotten nor forgiven her. He figures if his mother could leave him how could anyone else love him. Tara is going to take over her grandpa's vet clinic when she graduates to pay him back for her schooling. They are hundreds of miles apart. How can they continue a relationship if they will never see each other? Will Dylan's heart open to love? Will they be able to make it work being so far apart? This sweet romance is a great story! Her independence and sense of family draws Dylan, but will it also keep them apart?
I received a free copy of these three stories in exchange for an honest review.
