This clean romance kicks off the 2018 anthology written by Harlequin Heartwarming romance authors.

Lisa Garland has big plans for her grandparents' wedding anniversary on December 24th - the grand opening of Carousel House, featuring a fully-restored carousel in downtown Christmas Town. She doesn't expect the company restoring the carousel to go bankrupt or the only man available to help her make the deadline for her grandparents' anniversary to be her ex-fiance.

A decade ago, John Richardson walked away from Lisa for her own good. He's tried hard not to look back. But now Lisa needs a miracle and John might just be the only man who can deliver it. If only he can keep his undying love for her a secret. He's scheduled to return to duty on December 25, so all he needs to do is organize volunteers to finish the carousel and keep his heart under lock and key. But love has a way of opening doors and hearts, and John's holiday season may not go as planned.

A Christmas Carousel Proposal introduces many of the characters in the 12 Days of Heartwarming Christmas series, which begin the week after John proposes to Lisa. Six romances feature Lisa's bridesmaids and six feature heroes working on the carousel. All full-length novels end on Christmas Eve.

Includes 1st Chapters of all 12 follow-up novels.

This is the book which starts the fun of the series called 12 Days of Heartwarming Christmas. These stories connect and this should be the first story to read to best enjoy the series. I am happy to have read it. As a prologue, it is a quick read, but has lots of warmth, love and good holiday spirit. I enjoyed it's message very much as I saw two people, who loved each other very much. And did what they felt was best at the time. The story will make you happy and ready for a wonderful Christmas season. I received an ebook from the author. All thoughts are my own.

I really enjoyed this Christmas story! All Lisa Garland wants to do by Christmas is get the town carousel restored and running, but when she finds out that the company she hired has gone bankrupt she believes that will never happen. That is until the man who broke her heart years ago tells the town that with help he can get the job done. John Richardson wants to do everything possible to get the carousel restored for Lisa by Christmas, but it is going to take a lot of hard work and dedication. Having walked away from her once he isn't going to do it again. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

4 1/2 STARS! A delightful holiday reunion! Kicking off this years holiday anthology from the Harlequin Heartwarming authors, this story introduces the story line that a treasured carousel in the town of Christmas Town, Maine is being brought back to life in a new location to be enjoyed by all. Lisa Garland is in charge of getting it all arranged, and it's super special to her because it's special to her grandparents and will reopen centered around an anniversary party for them on Christmas Eve. The book introduces many of the characters that will derive the heroes and heroines of the 12 full length books to follow. It piqued my interest and brought the excitement of the carousel to life in my imagination! Lisa Garland thinks all is on track for the carousel project she's spearheading for the town council until an unexpected visitor announces that the company in charge of getting the overhaul done has declared bankruptcy and closed down! Panic ensues and the only person capable of possibly still pulling off the deadline just so happens to be the man she hasn't seen since he walked away from her and their engagement a decade ago! John Richardson never got over his love for Lisa, but when she voiced doubts about their union, he used it in order to walk away. He was shipping off soon thereafter anyway and considered it for her own good that he was leaving her open to live her own life again. Facing their past and realizing a new future just might be the answer they've both been looking for!

3 stars I purchased A Christmas Carousel Proposal by Melinda Curtis and this review was given freely. A short second chance at love excerpt spanning the day before Thanksgiving to the day after. Well written but ends.

John doesn't talk much. He didn't say anything when Lisa said she wanted to call off their wedding. He just got up and left. Ten years later, he just shows up and says he is going to help Lisa restore the carousel for her grandparents. Lisa doesn't want to talk about the past, she just wants to give her grandparents a present. John thought it was the best thing for Lisa if he just walked away. He was being deployed and if something happened to him, he didn't want her to be a widow. Now, they may have a second chance. Will they take it?

This prologue to a new series that features many authors has me hooked for more of the same in Christmas Town, Maine. Lisa Garland is surprised by her former fiance, John Richardson, suddenly appearing back in town. They haven’t seen each other in 10 years. It is her intention to have an old carousel working again by Christmas Eve for her grandparents’ 60th anniversary. I met different residents of Christmas Town and can only imagine how many characters will have their own story. This novella gets the ball rolling, and I look forward to watching others find their own love story. [I received this book for free and my opinion is my own.]
