The Little White Christmas Lie

Kristy Tate does a wonderful job of collecting some favorite romance tropes into one story. 

If you like holiday, fake relationships, celebrity, and small towns, then you are in the right book. 

I had fun with the hangups both Millie and Carson had to overcome to be together. Plus a matchmaking grandmother in the mix added even more holiday spice. 

It's a sweet story you'll enjoy best with a side of gingerbread men and a mug of cocoa. 

Carson Trent doesn't know that the beautiful Millie Cruise who literally falls into his lap on the morning train is really Camille Harper, a rock star of the romance industry. Millie doesn't know she is headed for Carson's grandmother's picture-perfect inn in a quaint New England town. Neither Carson nor Millie know their lives are about to spin out-of-control thanks to a patch of black ice, a cow, and a little white Christmas lie.

Christmas in Three Rivers

Liz Isaacson has a wonderful collection of her Three Rivers Christmas novels all bundled into a super novel for holiday reading enjoyment. Sigh. 

I enjoyed all four stories with unique characters and difficulties to overcome. You'll have trouble picking your favorite couple. I sure couldn't. 

Isn't Christmas the best time to fall in love? The cowboys of Three Rivers Ranch think so. Join four of them as they journey toward their path to happily ever after!

THE NINTH INNING: The Christmas season has never felt like such a burden to boutique owner Andrea Larsen. But with Mama gone and the holidays upon her, Andy finds herself wishing she hadn't been so quick to judge her former boyfriend, cowboy Lawrence Collins. Well, Lawrence hasn't forgotten about Andy either, and he devises a plan to get her out to the ranch so they can reconnect. Do they have the faith and humility to patch things up and start a new relationship?

TEN DAYS IN TOWN: Sandy Keller is tired of the dating scene in Three Rivers. Though she owns the pancake house, she's looking for a fresh start, which means an escape from the town where she grew up. When her older brother's best friend, Tad Jorgensen, comes to town for the holidays, it is a balm to his weary soul. A helicopter tour guide who experienced a near-death experience, he's looking to start over too--but in Three Rivers. Can Sandy and Tad navigate their troubles to find the path God wants them to take--and discover true love--in only ten days?

ELEVEN YEAR REUNION: Pastry chef extraordinaire, Grace Lewis has moved to Three Rivers to help Heidi Ackerman open a bakery in Three Rivers. Grace relishes the idea of starting over in a town where no one knows about her failed cupcakery. She doesn't expect to run into her old high school boyfriend, Jonathan Carver. A carpenter working at Three Rivers Ranch, Jon's in town against his will. But with Grace now on the scene, Jon's thinking life in Three Rivers is suddenly looking up. But with her focus on baking and his disdain for small towns, can they make their eleven year reunion stick?

THE TWELFTH TOWN: Newscaster Taryn Tucker has had enough of life on-screen. She's bounced from town to town before arriving in Three Rivers, completely alone and completely anonymous--just the way she now likes it. She takes a job cleaning at Three Rivers Ranch, hoping for a chance to figure out who she is and where God wants her. When she meets happy-go-lucky cowhand Kenny Stockton, she doesn't expect sparks to fly. Kenny's always been "the best friend" for his female friends, but the pull between him and Taryn can't be denied. Will they have the courage and faith necessary to make their opposite worlds mesh?

Amidst the magic of Christmas, four love stories unfold in the heart of Three Rivers Ranch, with four sexy cowboys, and all the holiday cheer you could ask for. Join the family in Three Rivers today!

Snowy White Christmas

I believe this was my first read by Josie Riviera. 

There were certainly lots of poplular romance tropes packed into this novella: billioniare, celebrity, second chance romance, secret baby, and small town. 

Lots of elements to form a charming story, but not all the character's reactions hit quite right with me. 

You may read it differently and it's on the shorter side so it won't take you long. 

Perhaps that was my difficulty, that there wasn't quite enough time to flesh everything out. 


Margaret Snow, a devoted mother, is determined to create a Christmas filled with heartwarming memories for her five-year-old daughter. Leaving behind her glamorous life as a successful swimsuit model in bustling LA, she returns to her small, snowy upstate New York town to reclaim the foreclosed trailer she once called home. Accompanied by her lovable menagerie of rescue animals, including a deaf parrot and a kitten with one eye, Margaret embarks on a journey that will test her faith in second chances.

Little does she expect to encounter Fernando Brandt, her former high school sweetheart, who now exudes charm and charisma like a true Prince Charming. As Margaret and Fernando reunite after years apart, their hearts are filled with both the warmth of familiarity and the ache of past regrets. But there's an unexpected twist—they share a secret, a precious gift from their past, a daughter he never knew about.

As their love rekindles amidst the snow-covered landscapes and twinkling Christmas lights, Margaret must confront her insecurities and embrace the true gift of Christmas—unconditional love for Fernando, a billionaire hiding his wealth beneath his humble exterior. Can they overcome the challenges that drove them apart and forge a new future as a family?

Loosely inspired by a favorite fairy tale, A Snowy White Christmas weaves the enchantment of a second-chance romance with the surprise of a secret baby and the allure of a billionaire hero. This sweet and wholesome holiday novella is perfect for fans of tender love stories, the joy of rediscovery, and the miracles and magic of the holiday season.

Immerse yourself in the warmth of this heartwarming second-chance romance with a secret baby twist, where delightful characters come to life, and love finds its way back amidst the snowflakes. Experience the magic of A Snowy White Christmas and let it transport you to a world where love conquers all.

The Sleigh on Seventeenth Street

Ms. Isaacson is the best. Just the best. 

If you're looking for a clean holiday romance with the right amount of sizzle, this is the book you need to curl up with in a comfy spot, a mug of your favorite hot drink, and uninterrupted reading time. 
That's all. 

When sparks fly in Three Rivers, can love light up the Christmas season for these two opposites?

A skilled cowboy electrician and a determined plumber must overcome their differences and navigate the challenges of love, work, and falling for each other during the magic of the Christmas season.

Camila Cruz is eager to secure the bid for a new development project in Three Rivers to save the mom-and-pop plumbing shop she works for and make it her own. Meanwhile, Dylan Walker, a talented electrician and somewhat cocky cowboy, is equally determined to win the electrical contract for the same project. When they both succeed in their bids, their professional paths become entwined, igniting a connection that neither can deny.

Despite the small town rumors surrounding the handsome electrician, Camila finds herself drawn to Dylan. As they work together and share in the town's festive Christmas celebrations, Camila begins to see a different side of Dylan—one that challenges her initial assumptions.

Can Camila and Dylan finish the build without breaking up or losing their shirts? Will they be able to traverse the delicate balance of water and electricity, the spell of mistletoe and Santa’s sleigh versus reality, without losing their hearts?

In this heartwarming Christian cowboy romance, Dylan and Camila learn to decipher the truth in business, embrace the magic of the season and the power of faith as they take a chance on love, discovering that sometimes the most unexpected connections can be the most rewarding.
