Book Review - Christmas From The Heart by Sheila Roberts #harlequin #romance




USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts takes readers to the charming, snowbound town of Pine River in this irresistible holiday romance.

Sometimes you need to look beyond the big picture to see what really matters Olivia Berg’s charity, Christmas from the Heart, has helped generations of families in need in Pine River, Washington, but this year might be the end of the road. Hightower Enterprises, one of their biggest donors since way back when Olivia’s grandmother ran the charity, has been taken over by Ebenezer Scrooge the Second, aka CFO Guy Hightower, and he’s declared there will be no more money coming to Christmas from the Heart.

Guy is simply being practical. Hightower Enterprises needs to tighten its belt, and when you don’t have money to spare, you don’t have money to share. You’d think even the pushy Olivia Berg could understand that.

With charitable donations dwindling, Olivia’s Christmas budget depends on Hightower’s contribution. She’s focused her whole life on helping this small town, even putting her love life on hold to support her mission.

When Guy’s Maserati breaks down at the edge of the Cascade foothills, he’s relieved to be rescued by a pretty young woman who drives him to the nearby town of Pine River. Until he realizes his rescuer is none other than Olivia Berg. What’s a Scrooge to do? Plug his nose and eat fruitcake and hope she doesn’t learn his true identity before he can get out of town.

What could go wrong?

My Thoughts:  This has been one of my FAVORITE holiday reads this season so far! If you enjoy stories about enemies to lovers then this will be quite the enjoyable read for you! I could NOT put it down!

In all truthfulness I really wanted to whap both the main characters up side the head a time or two. They were both so doggone hard headed but Fate and Karma always has their hands in things and so when Guy's car  broke down and he caught a ride from none other than Olivia and ends up having to spend some time with her I found it quite comical and fitting what he had to go thru to keep his identity hidden from her.

I really loved the small town feel where everybody knows everybody elses business and so on and oh the fun holiday goings on in a small town. It was just such a warm and cozy read that made me feel well....right at home!
