This story got me with its originality. It is an emotional and tough journey of forgiveness, learning from the past and letting it go, and allowing yourself to fall in love, to live fully and trust your heart to lead your way. The story gives us a look at the life of Mia Tempesta and Will Jackson for a year. During that year, from Christmas to Christmas, little Billy is born, Mia is trying to find a new job, new home, learn to be a single mom, and handle the overbearing in-laws, get over the betrayal and problems she had with her husband, and adjust to the feelings growing inside her towards Will. Will is recovering from the ten-year on-and-off-again relationship with his high school girlfriend and the disappointments that followed. There is a lot that happens in the story, the emotions are high, and changes are plentiful. I liked the characters, Will's family is a hoot, their drunken Christmas celebration had me laughing, the weed growing was a bit awkward, yet the support and acceptance were admirable. Will himself is a kind, generous, and considerate. His heart is golden, and it seems to shine to Mia and Billy. Mia is a tough lady. She champions for her baby, the marriage left her broken and broke, yet she is not giving up. She has her issues to be dealt with and she works on them on her own time, a time that is given to her, hence the one-year time frame on the story. I liked the story, the characters, and the little town they lived in. It is realistic and real-life like, the struggles are true and known to many. The situations they face, unemployment, homelessness, and leaning on the support of relatives are everyday occurrences across the world, and easy to relate to on that level. As an escape-reader, the story was too realistic to me to absolutely love it, but I do recognize the real and raw struggle Mia and Will goes through to find their place in the world, and admire their gumption to go after what they want. ~ Four Spoons

A Sweet Home Montana book, A Baby for Christmas by Joan Kilby. A heart-warming story that you will be thinking of long after you finish the last page. I enjoyed the dialogue and the characters. I'll be looking forward to seeing what the next book brings to us.

I really enjoyed A Baby for Christmas by Joan Kilby, the second book in her Sweet Montana series. Widow Mia is almost nine months pregnant and on her way to visit her sister when a snow storm drives her off the road. Already in labor, Mia follows some Christmas lights to a building where Will is working on Christmas Eve. Will is recovering from a break-up with his on again-off again high school girlfriend. One would wonder if those two were really in love or in a rut. Will ends up delivering the baby thanks to Mia’s sister help, over the phone, and forms a connection with Mia and baby Will. In the meantime, Mia is being torn in a many different directions, her dead husband’s family, the baby, Will, her sister, to the point where she is afraid of taking any risks. One theme throughout this story is miscommunication or not telling the whole story, including trust and not lying. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Kilby drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page, reading this book in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

A Baby for Christmas is the second book in the Sweet Home Montana series. It is a story about letting go of your past and preparing for anything that might come your way. Mia suddenly finds herself in labor during a snowstorm. When she finds a place to hunker down, she also finds Will. Will is recovering from a break-up, and when Mia needs his help, he doesn't hesitate. After the baby is born, Mia and Will spend time getting to know each other, and find that they just might get more out of this than only the birth of a baby. This was a very good story. I definitely recommend it.

A Baby for Christmas is exactly what I expected from Joan Kilby, a sweet and enjoyable read. Mia (our heroine) is a woman who needs assistance desperately when Will (our hero) comes across her. She actually needs assistance through much of the book as she has had a string of bad luck due to her moral reprobate of a husband (who had died, very early in her preganacy). I liked the pace of the book and of Mia and Will's romance. It was not insta-love on both sides, which I would have found incredibly unbelievable. It was more insta-connection, where the characters felt a strong sense of connection and friendship early on and the romance followed the friendship at a fast but believable pace for the couples situation. The main characters are very likable and well written. The secondary characters are also well written, even though a few of them are not always likable. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance. I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

Will Jackson has only been existing since the break up with his long term girlfriend. Then on Christmas Eve the most unexpected miracle lands right on his doorstep and his boring life will be turned up side down! This is a sweet story of letting go of the past and looking forward to new beginnings. It's very well done and leaves you with a smile. Definitely a book I recommend.
