    Hot steamy romances.
    .
    The Christmas Carousel by Mary Carter
    Georgia grew up with her sister and parents and every Christmas her dad would take her to the carousel. He ran the Trash and Treasures Barn and made a living at it.
    She had met a sad girl one day and she was afraid to get on the ponies by herself so she held Georgia's hand. Later she learns the little sad girl died of leukemia. They left a box and a picture which has gone unopened.
    They live in a RI town where the tourist dollar is large during the summer months. Years later her father has died and it's only her and her son, next door to the bakery running the treasures shop.
    Her sister's husband has lost his job in CA and they want to cash in on selling the business that they own 1/2 of to the developers. Georgia with help from the other local businesses hopes to keep the developers away.
    Others have made up their minds and Georgia has to sell and learns Adam is one she has to deal with. He soon explains how he knows her and he helps her open the big box from decades ago. Love learning of the RI facts as I am a native myself.
    Love the connection and the charity to others of the carousel horse in this book.
    .
    A rose in Winter by Laura Diorand
    Allegra Caldrone is a researcher and she meets Raoul. When she meets him again the next day and learns his last name she realizes exactly the trade his family is in.
    Love the mystery of the perfume box and how the rose is connected. Family holiday traditions were interesting to learn about.
    .
    The 24 Days of Christmas by Linda Lael Miller
    Frank Raynor along with his 7 year old daughter Lizzie rent to Addie Hutton who is now in charge of Henry. Lizzie meets them all and opens an advent box-one gift a day til Christmas morning.
    The house used to belong to Addie's parents, now she's in the servants quarters.
    His wife had died and left Lizzie pretending to be an angel, especially now for the school play. Henry is Addie's ex husbands step son so while he's on his new honeymoon the child was sent to him. She does find a job in town and they all draw closer with each of the gifts that are opened together every morning.
    Miracles, that's what they all need..
    .
    Christmas Angel by Kat Martin
    1860's and the train has derailed spilling all the goods in the woods. Angela Summers heads that way trailing Josh Coltrian, now a doctor who had kissed her one winter years ago.
    Josh tried not to think of Angel but a woman he met in PA but it wasn't working... Angela can't get past the fact that he fought for the enemy.
    Loved hearing about her charity work and how she involves everybody to help...
    I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review

    Loved Florand!

    We all know I bought this Christmas collection for "A Rose In Winter" By Laura Florand and it was grand 4 stars. 




    A really lovely romance with Florand's trademark whole hearted heroes and a heroine who shows off the writer's deep understanding of human nature--here with an exploration of only childhood. This is a great retelling of Red Riding Hood in the same fascinating, complex, clever, subtle way that she retells Rapunzel in The Chocolate Kiss. In fact, the witch and her garden make a show in this novella as well. Best of all, the setting of a French Noel with its traditions is exactly the kind of details you want to snuggle up with at this time of year.  While I wish the tale were longer and we got a little more of the heroine (I am not completely sure of her studies), the ground work Florand sets up for the rest of the cousins' stories in this series is flawless and all the secondary characters are top notch. Can't wait for the next book! 




    The 24 Days Of Christmas" by Linda Lael Miller 3 stars.




    Very sweet second chance romance in a small town with a widowed Sheriff, two kids, and a woman starting over. 




    "Christmas Angel" by Kat Martin 2 stars




    It is really hard to win me over to a post civil war romance with a former belle heroine and all through the medical history here is interesting, this one didn't work for me either. 




    "The Christmas Carousel" by Mary Carter 2 stars




    I find the trope of the evil developer not my favorite and this story has it. The backstory is lovely but the romance not so much.
