Can a rescue dog help two lost souls find love at Christmas?
All accountant Griffin Cole wants for Christmas is stability. After spending his childhood traveling the world with his one-hit wonder rocker dad, he loves his quiet and unremarkable life in Marietta. Then the beautiful Raelyssa Woods knocks on his door. Her bold spirit immediately turns his predictable life upside down, and suddenly Griffin wants to ask Santa for so much more.
Rae Woods loves running her café in the small Montana town she calls home. She specializes in comfort food because she loves spreading joy to everyone she meets—two-footed or four. But after she impulsively takes in a homeless dog she names Noel, her big heart lands her in bigger trouble when her landlord threatens to toss her out. Grasping at holiday straws, she remembers a cute accountant who owes her a favor—and she happens to know he’s got a fenced yard and hidden soft spot.
When Griffin reluctantly agrees to foster Noel, he inadvertently sets in motion several Christmas miracles that neither he nor Rae could have ever seen coming.
Begin your holiday reading with this sweet opposites-attract romance set in Marietta. I love reading romances set in Marietta (from Tule Publishing) especially ones set at Christmas time. Likable characters, small town charm, good storyline, and a loveable dog seal the deal. I was hooked from page one. Rae has a huge heart and is full of happiness. Griffin keeps people and life at arm’s length. Montana Christmas Magic is the start to a new series by Kaylie Newell and I look forward to the upcoming books in the Cole Brothers series.
