20 Days of Christmas Books – Day 19
A Bramble House Christmas by C.J. Carmichael
Carrigans of the Circle C series, Book 6
Publisher: Tule Publishing (October 24, 2015)
MY REVIEW: (from Nov. 9, 2015)
Christmas Magic in Marietta, Montana
I have read all of the Carrigans of the Circle C books and book 6 does not disappoint. The gradual build to Willa and Finn’s romance was perfect. They both kept secrets and they both fell in love without meaning too. Add in a few Christmas miracles and you have a perfect story for the Christmas season. The mystery of the ring and how it adds to the secret of the Bramble family history was a perfect addition to the story. For fans of the Carrigan and Bramble families, this book treats us to glimpses of some familiar characters: Eliza & Marshall-owners of the Bramble B&B (met them in “Snowbound in Montana); Sage & Dawson-new friends to Willa & her son (Promise Me, Cowboy); Callan-Sage’s sister and Eliza cousin (A Cowgirl’s Christmas), and the wonderfully grouchy Aunt Mable Bramble. Willa and Finn both loved Marietta so I hope that they’ll decide to become residents and we’ll see them in future books. A Bramble House Christmas can be read as a standalone, but the series is outstanding. This was a quick and heartwarming read. The cover is simply beautiful and the dedication was lovely. This is one of my favorite Christmas rereads.
A Bramble House Christmas is currently on option for a TV movie, with plans for a Christmas 2017 release. Plus, it was nominated for a RITA award by Romance Writers of American in 2016!
All he wants for Christmas…is an answer
Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks. So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers. But Willa Fairchild is not the conniving woman he expects to find. Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart. And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.
