3.5 Stars By this point it’d be pointless to deny it: I’m a sucker for a single dad romance, and A Christmas Miracle for the Doctor had all the right ingredients. Drew went back home when he got full custody of his little girl. His schedule as a surgeon in the city was not conducive to actually being a dad. Now all settled, he realizes his young daughter is practically a stranger to him and he is set on rectifying that. Is there anything hotter than a guy busting his butt off trying to be a better father?? I don’t think so. He was serious but sweet, sexy and really focused on taking care of his baby girl. Addie owns the bookstore in town and little Bella is one of her regular customers. That pretty girl just calls to her and she’s determined to cheer her up with some holiday spirit and helping them out when they’re in a jam. What if that entails having to spend some time with the sexy Doctor? As long as she doesn’t fall, what’s wrong with some eye candy? Obviously, the more time they spend together, the more Addie and Drew’s attraction grows. But with Drew determined to never make the same mistakes of his past, do they even have a chance? Addie was a sweetheart, all smiles and niceness. She had some serious self-esteem issues, and this eventually got on my nerves, but she was just so nice I couldn’t help but like her. I really liked how much little Bella was a part of this story, and how they all became close together to be a family. All sweetness and hot kisses, this had a little angst to even things out, but it’s all mostly holiday cheer. A perfect quick and light read for this time of the year. *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

Rating 4.5/5* This is a brilliant festive read starring Bella, a delightful young lady coping with hearing her Mum not wanting her and her Dad being a workaholic surgeon who hasn't previously made much time for her either. Drew realises he has missed out on so much in his young daughter's life that he decides to move back to the place he grew up in and to make Bella the most important person in his life. He's determined she'll never feel rejected or abandoned again, even if that means he'll be celibate for the foreseeable future. However, his daughter has other plans, ones that he'll find hard to resist! This highly talented author has done it again! She's written a beautiful festive read with great characters and an intriguing plot together with a somewhat precocious matchmaker, too! This is a festive read to put a smile on your face and joy in your heart - I loved escaping into it! I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.

Oh my goodness, Addie may very well be my new favorite female character. I loved her from the beginning of the story only to admire her more by the end. What she does for Bella just stole my heart. She is selfless, supportive, protective, and loving. And her chemistry with Drew is beautiful. I hated that he was so torn, but loved Drew for wanting to be a better dad to Bella. They were so cute together. Bella almost stole the story with her cuteness and very forgiving, loving attitude. She made her family come together. How I loved this story and reading it only made me want to go back and reread the previous books in the series again. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Oh how I love this Series by Victoria James. Sadly somehow I missed the last two. I'll catch up though. Once again Victoria James swept me away in the world of Shadow Creek. Addie is an extremely relatable character! I love that she's full of love and joy and helps others see that. I hate that her mother is a horrible person that tore her down most of her life. I hope she gets her comeuppance soon. Drew is totally the hero to sweep women off their feet! An amazing dad who is determined to put his daughter first. When he went all alpha I could have swooned like regency era lady! Finally my favorite character in this story was Drew's daughter Bella. She's charming, sweet and hilarious and she totally stole the show! If you enjoy a great, slowburning friends to lovers romance I highly recommend reading A Christmas Miracle for the Doctor.

4.5 Stars This was a cute book that gets you right into the holiday spirit. I just loved Addie. She's was an awesome woman. She's full of kindness and heart. It broke my heart to know how her high school days were, but karma is going to repay her for her kindness she shows daily. It also broke my heart in the beginning of this book for Drew and Bella. Bella is so adorable and I love her interactions with Addie. This book is jam packed full heart and feels. I highly recommend it!!

I absolutely loved this story! I'm loving the Shadow Creek series! Addie owns the children's bookstore in Shadow Creek, she loves kids and really has a heart for all of them. Especially one little girl who comes to visit and at first is hard to engage, but Addie has a way to open up the world to little Bella. Addie is a wonderful nurturer. Her father who is a famous doctor has moved back to Shadow Creek after his ex dumps her on him, he realizes that he can't devote himself to Bella or his job he makes the move. Sadly, Drew doesn't know what to do with Bella. He was never around the first 5 years of her life, Bella had nannies and two parents who were never there. Drew is getting his feet wet with her, he's happy that Bella has someone and something to make her happy and that's Addie and the bookstore. When Addie's after school sitter quits, Drew is stuck with trying to find someone/place and Bella pops up with staying with Addie. Addie is open anyway and so she offers after a discussion takes place between she and Drew. Drew is attracted to Addie but his new hard rule is Bella is first and only. He's not having any part of another woman walking out on his daughter. Addie is attracted to Drew as well but he makes it clear that she's only there to serve a purpose, that is until he crosses a line then quickly redraws it. Addie has grown up in that town. She's got sisters who care, a mother from Hades and Addie was bullied throughout high school. The backstory is well written and you get to read it, woven into the plot very well. Moving ahead these two push and pull along with little Bella. I really loved this one, the highs and lows and all the in betweens were perfectly written, I loved Addie what a great character she was and her love for children, watching her finally shut her mother down was a treat! Drew was a tough one, of course you love him but you also want to club him over the head at times and tell him to get in the game! Another great read to the series and a must read. I loved it. Take me to Montana! arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review.

Victoria James has done it again. I loved being back in Shadow Creek and reading about all the towns people. This book was about Addie and Drew. Drew was such a lost soul. He felt like he had failed his daughter Bella so he moves back to his home town with her because that is the last place he can remember truly being happy. He hopes to be able to repair his relationship with his daughter and have them become a family. Addie is still living in the past. She is having a hard time letting go of past things that happened to her and because of that she has shaped her life into this safe bubble. Addie and Drew meet because Bella wanders into her book store. Addie instantly falls in love with her. Bella is such a sweet girl. She makes the book funny, and sweet. This is such a sweet romantic story about 3 people learning to trust again. With this trust they gain so much more. I cannot wait to see whose book will be next in this series. Thanks Net Galley. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

After realizing his fast paced city life wasn't conducive to raising a child on his own, Drew Barrett decided it might be time to take a step back from that lifestyle, for something a little calmer. And he knew returning to Shadow Creek would give them just what they needed, a quieter life, one where he could still do what he loved, but also give Bella the good, wholesome life she deserved. What he never wanted or expected to find there was love, the moment his daughter befriends a local shop owner and they bond over their love of Christmas everything changes. This change isn't easily received, at first, it takes a persistent little girl and the magic of Christmas to turn it into a miracle they all needed! A Christmas Miracle for the Doctor is a beautifully crafted tale that will give a nice little tug on the heartstrings and leave you heart full of joy! I am a sucker for heartwarming single parent stories and this book definitely had all of feels and then some. These well crafted characters wandered onto the page, lured me into their world, and made me feel right at home, as if I were meant to be there all along. Early on I developed quite an attachment to them, Drew had a lot of old hurt to work through, and was quite adamant love wasn't part of his life plan, but love had other plans for him. I enjoyed watching him maneuver through all the unexpected changes in his life, and find the courage to open his heart to love again, Addie and him were a perfect pairing. If you are looking for a wholesome, feel good Christmas story, I highly recommend you pick this one up, it's certain to warm your heart and bring on some holiday spirit! I requested an advanced copy of this title from NetGalley, and I am voluntarily leaving an honest opinion.

A sweet, holiday-themed romance :) Addie, the younger sister of the heroine from the last book in the series (Molly of The Firefighter's Pretend Fiancee ) is the one who's often borne the brunt of her mother's "we need to be perfect and you're in the way of that" wrath. Addie's always been on the plump side, and though she did very well in her first career as a children's librarian, now she's back in her hometown in her dream job--owner of a children's bookstore. (Even that's not quite up to mom's standards, since Addie's two sisters are doctors and mom herself is the mayor of the town.) Addie hasn't had much of a dating history, thanks in large part to a disastrous high school experience, and has pretty much decided that she'll probably live her life alone and that's (mostly) okay. But that's before Bella Barrett bursts into her shop, her overwhelmed father in tow... Drew knows that his last relationship--with Bella's mother--was an unmitigated disaster, and he's determined to repair his relationship with his young daughter; a crucial part of that project, he is sure, is not getting involved with another woman again. But he didn't count on Addie Mayberry, who tempts him like no one has before... It was fun watching Drew and Addie fall in love, and seeing the part Bella played in it all, though at times things did feel a bit simplistic and easy. For example, even with their mother pushing them academically, how does a 26-year-old accomplish as much as Addie apparently has? Librarianship requires both undergraduate and graduate degrees, plus she won an award in the field, plus she started a business from scratch (which is already well established at the book's start)? (Though maybe the store ownership was shortcutted somehow and I missed it or forgot the details?) Also, does a busy business owner really have time to babysit someone else's kid every afternoon? Drew didn't even try to find another sitter--I mean, that was a cute part of the story, seeing Addie and Bella spending so much time together, but it did't seem realistic. And what does Drew do for childcare when he's called into the hospital those times that Addie doesn't happen to be already at his house, decorating for Christmas? That one time we see in the story can't have been the only time he had an emergency... I mean, it's a cute story, and I really like the characters and the setting and will definitely be picking up the next book in the series. It just seemed as if a few things here were almost too convenient at times. Though this book is the sixth in the series, it worked fairly well as a standalone--though Mayor Mayberry plays a large (and largely negative) role in her daughters' lives, reading Molly's book first might help you to understand the dynamic between the sisters and their mothers a bit better than is obvious in this book alone. One more sister to go... ;) Rating: 3 1/2 stars / B- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Now this book is an example of why I love holiday stories. All that magic and romance of the holidays wrapped up in a beautiful family story. Addie and Drew are amazing characters and Drew's daughter Isabella is such a cutie. Small town life is new for Drew and his daughter. Drew had to admit he wasn't giving his daughter the life she deserved when her mother decides to completely leave both their lives so he packs them up and takes a job in Shadow Creek. His plan is to focus fully on Isabella. That is until the shy unassuming bookstore owner, Addie Mayberry, comes into their lives. If Addie has her way this will be the best Christmas any of them have ever had. Fantastic story that is wonderfully written with characters that will steal your heart. I highly recommend this one.

This is the first book I have by this author and now I am a fan. The story of Addie Mayberry and Doctor Drew Barrett will touch your hearts. At times heartbreaking , it is also heartwarming. Addie is a children’s bookstore owner whose childhood was rather tough and a mother who constantly criticized her. She feels she will never be enough. Her new customer is a seven year old girl whose parents are divorced and feels she is not enough , as well. Drew, her Dad, has changed his life and returned to his hometown in order to give his daughter a safe place and a place to feel loved. Watching the three of them interact was touching and poignant. This is a story about overcoming mistakes, failures, self-esteem and doubts, in order to find love, hope, and a new beginning. Be forewarn that tissues might be in order. I was entrusted this copy by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Loved this book! Addie is a book store owner that steps in to help Drew, the new doctor in town, with watching his daughter after school. Bella, the daughter, quickly wins Addie's heart. Drew is also smitten, but has promised himself that he will not get involved with another woman so he can devote his time and energy to Bella to make up for all the time his missed in the past and build a strong relationship with her. Addie respects this, but is equally and, with her poor self image, doesn't feel worthy of him anyway. I loved the relationships in this novel and how the story unfolded. The characters drew me in and made me feel like I was experiencing their tale along with them. This is a sweet and poignant tale that fans of the genre will love. The story seemed to come alive on the pages and I was sorry when it ended. This one is a must read and should be on the top of your TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.
