A Christmas Bride {Book Review}

Author: Hope Ramsay
Series: Chapel of Love, #1

Book Description:

A brand new contemporary romance series from USA Today bestselling author Hope Ramsay centered on a small-town wedding chapel!

A season of hope…'Tis the season in Shenandoah Falls and the first time Willow Peterson has been home in years. But she's determined to fulfill the wishes of her recently deceased best friend and restore Eagle Hill Manor to its former glory—all in time to host the perfect holiday wedding. She just has to get the owner of the historic inn to hire her. Unfortunately, that means dealing with Scrooge himself...

After the death of his wife, David Lyndon has a bah-humbug approach to Christmas. But as December counts down and the wedding planning is in full swing, it's harder and harder to stay immune to the charms of Willow, especially when he sees how much joy she brings his eight-year-old daughter. After a simple kiss under the mistletoe turns into something more, David is hoping he can turn the magic of the holiday season into the love of a lifetime.

My Review:

So its that time of year again where the holiday books are starting to come out again. I love reading Christmas themed books during this time. But I will say that this was actually my first book from author Hope Ramsay.

I thought that both Willow and David's character's were likable and relate-able.

Willow is back in home town in the first time in years. I thought that Willow was sweet, kind, caring, funny, driven, determined, independent, and spirited. She definitely takes a risk on taking on her dead best friends wishes for the bed and breakfast.

I felt for David, well most of the time. David is the widower of Willow's best friend. He's just kind of stopped his life after the sudden and tragic loss of his wife. At times he came off as a bit selfish, spoiled, and a bit of a je*rk. Also I just wanted to jump and shake his family at times.

I thought that this was a sweet and light story that was about overcoming tragedy around the holiday's. I also thought it was a great start to a new series.

I'm giving this book 4 Stars Out of 5 and can't wait to read more from this series and author!!!!
