A HOLIDAY SURPRISE
Stubbornly small-town Jenny Lindstrom has misgivings when she promises to stand proxy in her best friend’s wedding—misgivings that are fulfilled when tall, handsome Sam Kelley walks into the courthouse an hour late. In order to keep her promise, an afternoon favor turns into a weekend of startling but undeniable attraction, threatening the well-ordered world that keeps her heart at arm’s length from any more pain.
Sam’s plan is to fly to Livingston, Montana, take vows for his favorite cousin, and return to Chicago as quickly as possible. But his plan is turned upside-down when he must spend a weekend with Jenny in Gardiner in order to keep his word. He doesn’t want to fall for the prim, proper schoolteacher whose small-town life seems to him like selling out, but the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to say good-bye.
When city and country come together for Christmas, the unexpected gift is true love.
Love, Love, Love!! One of the top books this year. I absolutely loved the humor, and the characters had a round aspect on life, Katy got the characters to become more than life through her words.
I read this book as we was traveling around through the holidays. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a clean romance.
Jenny & Sam collided into one another, this was by far a “love at first sight” book, but you got to build with Jenny & Sam. They were not perfect, and I loved how Jenny’s brothers didn’t just automatically “know” Sam, like where he lived, his reason for being there, etc. It was fun to see the “guys” talk, so to speak. I also loved how we got to see how Jenny thought about Sam, and then how Sam thought about Jenny. It gave me a different angle, and made the story more rounded. It was kinda like watching a movie develop right in front of you. Ohhhh Katy, That is a great idea: a MOVIE!
With this being a series, I will definitely be looking out for the next book! This is by far one of the best, and the littlest of things would make me smile.
Even if there had been, Jenny would have probably kept him at a respectful distance, especially at school where she honored the simple inherent wisdom of: Don’t get your nookies where you get your cookies. ~28% Kindle
About the Author
Katy Regnery, winner of the 2013 NECRWA First Kiss and 2013 Maine RWA Everything But the Kitchen Sink contests, has always loved telling a good story and credits her mother with making funny, heartwarming tales come alive throughout her childhood. A lifelong devotee of all romance writing from Edwardian to present-day, it was just a matter of time before Katy tried her hand at writing a love story of her own.
As it turned out, one love story turned into a series of five Heart of Montana romances, following the love lives of the Yellowstone-based Lindstrom siblings. In addition to small-town contemporary romance, Katy is presently writing a paranormal romance that takes place in northern New England and the forests north of Quebec.
Speaking of forests, Katy lives in the relative-wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut where her writing room looks out at the woods and her husband, two young children and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories of all are the messy and unexpected ones.
Disclosure: I won this book in a giveaway. I did not have to do the review, and this review is my honest opinion.
