BOOK REVIEW & RELEASE!!! ~ A Lot Like Christmas by Kait Nolan

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Jaded Army medic Ryan Malone never expected his next mission would bring him back from Afghanistan to tiny Wishful, Mississippi. His great uncle’s health is failing and the cantankerous old coot has pushed everyone in the family away. Ryan is their last resort to get Uncle Percy to move into assisted living before he breaks a hip—or something worse. He’s looking to get in, get it done, and get back out. That definitely doesn’t include taking time out for a sweet-faced waitress with a heart bigger than the Atlantic.

Interior designer Hannah Wheeler is a long way from the high-powered clients of her old Atlanta firm. Despite the fact that she’s currently spending her days waiting tables, she’s discovered she really enjoys the small-town life she found with her sister. This Christmas season, she’s finally ready to introduce Wishful to her true capabilities by using her skills to spread some holiday spirit. But with Ryan and Percy, she’s definitely got her work cut out for her.

Will Hannah’s evergreen cheer thaw their frosty hearts and remind these two that the most important part of the holidays is family?

Hannah and Ryan were great together! From the moment we meet her, decorating the diner Christmas tree with forks and spoons, she won me over. Bubbly and sweet with a hint of spice, despite the fear and trauma that brought her to Wishful.

Ryan was a little gruff to start but he was a certified badass so that much was expected, but seeing him with Percy told me right away that he wasn’t a jerk, just a man with a lot on his shoulders. Together they were fantastic: flirty and fun and sexy. And the best part was that they embarked on a bit of matchmaking on their own which was sweet and funny.

One of the things that makes reading a Kait Nolan novel such a wonderful experience is the Casserole Patrol but during A Lot Like Christmas I have to say that Percy stole the show. A recent widower who hasn’t been able to cope with life without his Janie, he’s the reason Ryan is in town and when all three of them were on the page together, I couldn’t stop smiling.

Everything about this story was great…except there wasn’t enough of it! I’m a greedy reader and I wanted more but it was pretty much perfect.

Author: Annie Dyer

❄️He ploughed a path straight to her heart…❄️
 
Zack Maynard likes to keep things simple in his small town: he runs his care home for the elderly, spends his evenings at his brother’s bar and climbs the hills and peaks of his area. His life is going just fine until Severton’s newest resident opens her hotel, steals his builders, complicates his Christmas and makes him crave more than just her baking.
 
Sorrell Slater thought she’d be starting her hotel with a husband; instead she’s in a new town, with a new business and trying to start a new life as a single woman, and she isn’t entirely sure she can do it. However, Severton isn’t a place that lets anyone struggle on their own, and Zack is more than happy to be her tour guide, making sure that both their Christmases sparkle. And as much as she tries to keep him in the friend zone, his persistent charm keeps ploughing through her barriers, right towards her heart.
 
But Severton is a town of secrets, ones that have been buried beneath the caves and peaks of the area. As independent as she’s become, this time Sorrell might just need Zack’s help to escape something deadlier than she thought a small town could hide.
 
Sleighed is the first book in the Severton Search and Rescue Series.
