I’m excited to share this enjoyed read with you.
In my world, 5 stars are reserved for truly great books.
In this case the definition of a great book is highly subjective. We are not talking literary excellence here with a book appealing to the masses. Although we do hope many will read and enjoy it.
The writing is taken into account and it is at a high level, editorially speaking, which adds to the enjoyment.
The most important thing, though, is this book has chemistry. That is what makes it awesome.
Like in a movie where they have the right story and the right pairing of actors with skill, but also with that special something that just makes it work.
I read a lot of Chautona Havig, and I have to say her book one in this collection is my number one favorite of all time. It has a solid five stars from me.
I’ve moved on to book two but couldn’t wait to share book one with you.
Home for Christmas: The Christmas Lights Collection
♥ The Stars of New Cheltenham by Chautona Havig
Christmas in Rockland—battleground or romantic?
Avalon is ticked—seriously livid. Who does this Marine recruiter think he is? Her brother is a boy and is not ready to be sacrificed on the altar of “service to your country.” No. Thank you. When trying to talk sense into Max doesn’t work, she does the only think she can think of. Take it to the top.
Gareth Hudson has an exemplary record as a Marine recruiter and knows a good man when he sees one. So when Maxton McCollum starts asking questions in a diner one afternoon, it was obvious. This was a match made in military heaven. One young man anxious to serve his country. One country ready to train him to be the best version of himself.
So when Avalon walks into Gareth’s recruiting office, all the wrong kinds of fireworks explode. In a peacekeeping move unlike him, Gareth asks for four Saturdays to change her mind. If he can’t, he’ll suggest that Max wait six months before signing up.
Romance wasn’t part of the bargain, and with their age difference, Gareth knows it still shouldn’t be, but how do you resist the pull of love at Christmas?
I hope you love this as much as I did.
The rest of the collection has authors worth reading too. Just sayin’
