Review for Christmas at Evergreen Inn by Donna Alward - 4 bees knees
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
When a December Nor'easter roars up the eastern seaboard, Jewell Cove cop Todd Ricker spends his day off being a Good Samaritan to stranded holiday travelers. But when the roads close and Todd can't make his way home, he discovers that the Evergreen Inn is full up. Until another Good Samaritan opens her doors and offers him a place to stay... Lainey Price is not looking forward to Christmas, but just because she's not filled with the holiday spirit doesn't mean she's going to turn Todd out into the stormy night. Even if it means offering the handsome police officer the couch in her tiny cottage. But when the weather takes a turn for the worse, the two are snowed in for a wintry evening by the fire. With Christmas only a few days away, can Todd convince Lainey to open her heart to the season...and love?
MY REVIEW -
This was a cute holiday romance, and I really enjoyed the bed and breakfast aspect, and I love the snowed in small town scenario. Lainey is one of the main characters, who is a little iffy on beginning a relationship because her fiancé dumped her last Christmas, so she is sort of pushing Todd away, a sort of friend, and she also is not really in the holiday spirit, so she's feeling a bit sorry for herself and she needs a pick me up. Enter Todd, hunky cop, who thinks Lainey is wonderful, but Lainey is a little weary of Todd because he's a bit of a ladies man. Todd and Lainey are really cute together, and they have a bit of spice to their chemistry. There is a sex scene, and I think it was written well, and I like that Lainey didn't fall all over herself to be with Todd. I love pretty much any Christmas time story, so that definitely added to my enjoyment of this book, and it's quite short, so I finished it in no time, and I was interested till the very end. Definitely give it a read if you like romance and Christmas!
