MY REVIEW: (November 4, 2016)
“‘Tis the season of magic”
Nicki Darren takes a short-term job helping Quincy Ryan, who has just moved to Marietta with his diabetic father and his four-year-old son that he just found out about. Nicki and Quincy are two very different personalities that fight their growing attraction. The star of this holiday romance is the advent tree calendar Nicki makes for Atlas. Through the calendar the charm and Christmas spirit of Marietta is showcased. Quincy is also able to connect with his son and embrace his new role of being a father as they enjoy the activities from the calendar.
I hadn’t read any prior books in this series and didn’t feel like I missed out on enjoying this story because of that. I liked that the chapters are by date, mostly following the advent tree theme. The epilogue was special as we caught up with the family two years later. The author also supplies a link to make an Advent Calendar similar to the one in the story. Note: I received this book from Tule Publishing through Net Galley and am voluntarily reviewing it.
Quincy Ryan was just handed custody of a son he didn’t know existed. He knows how to be an architect, not a dad, so he looks to his own father for guidance, but that means moving with Pops to Marietta, Montana. Quincy knows he has to get over his shock and give Atlas the Christmas he deserves, but how? He needs a miracle. Nicki Darren, failed actress, will take any job as Christmas approaches, even babysitting for a withdrawn, workaholic, single father. She lost her mom as a child, too, and hasn’t had a real Christmas since, so she identifies with four-year-old Atlas. An advent calendar of activities soon has Nicki pulling Quincy out of the house to get a tree and ice skate with his son. She wants Quincy to open his heart to Atlas, but begins to fall for the Ryan men herself. It makes the countdown to her last day, Christmas Eve, bittersweet. If only the miracle he is looking for included her…
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
USA Today Bestselling author, winner of 2013 Reviewer’s Choice Award from Romantic Times Book Reviews Before making my first sale to Harlequin Mills & Boon in 2012, I spent two decades writing and submitting to every publisher with a transom while holding down a day job and raising a family with my high school sweet heart. Since then, I’ve gone to contract on over thirty books. While Harlequin Presents remains my first love, I also write romantic comedy, medieval fantasy romance, erotic romance, and small town contemporary romance for Tule Publishing’s Montana Born. In fact, I write just about anything, so long as it’s romance. P.S. I’m also Canadian. Website: http://danicollins.com/
