Sandy Claus has had a hard time finding the right guy. The one time she thought she found “the one”, he bolted after she told him about her family history. Needless to say, she’s been very guarded since. So when she finds herself irresistibly drawn to her best friend’s older brother, she decides to fight the magnetic pull he has on her and avoid him as best she can. But when that doesn’t seem to work, she finds herself falling for him and his sweet daughter. But is the chemistry Ben and Sandy feel for each other real? Or is there magic at work, causing these feelings between them? I was really looking forward to reading this second book in the series. I was intrigued by Sandy, her family history, and the magic that happens in Christmas Town. This was a REALLY fun story, what with Sandy’s ancestors and her “abilities”. And while I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the chemistry she had with Ben, I found myself really loving her back story and a bit more of the history of Christmas Town. The hint of Christmas magic in the story makes it an irresistible read and the love story was great too. Overall, this was a really fun book with a sweet love story and a super cute back story. If you’re in the mood for an entertaining read that brings more to the table than your typical Christmas story, then this is the book for you! (I received a digital copy of the book for free.

A Mommy for Christmas is a sweet and heartwarming Christmas romance. If you love Christmas stories, you'd be sure to love this book. I absolutely love Christmas town and its characters. Sandy and Ben are really sweet together and Lily is absolutely adorable. I had a wonderful time reading this book and found myself laughing at many funny scenes. I really love the magical aspect in the book and I hope the next story will give us more insight to the Claus' family. Can't wait for the next story. * I was given an advanced copy.

I love Christmas Town. A visit here is always filled with joy, magic and romance. Single Dad Ben Winchester is here for his sister's wedding. Lily, his eight year old daughter, is the flower girl. Ben wants to make his little girl happy, but he knows that he can't give her what she wants most - a mommy. When Ben meets Sandy Claus, he's attracted. Thing become more intense when they accidentally exchange a Commitment Cookie which Ben eats. Will there be another HEA? Sandy has a secret that might stop their romance. I wanted him to follow his heart, but I had my doubts. Ginny Baird has the magic touch with this series. Love and magic combine to give the reader a sweet holiday tale that lifts the heart. Her characters are charming. The residents are quirky and caring. The secrets are magical and HEA are possible. I can't wait for more stories in this feel good series.

If you love Christmas stories then this is the series for you. The whole town is Christmas. And this particular story has some special secrets! Fun, laughter and small town angst are all included in this sweet and wonderful read! Hannah's brother Ben is coming to town with his daughter for his sisters wedding. But he never expected to meet someone here. His sister has been praising Sandy Claus for a while now but he can't believe how beautiful she really is. But there is no chance for them. Two towns, two states. And he can't put Lily through that when she has asked Santa for a mommy. But when a mixup with his sisters secret Virginia cookies happens the attraction becomes hard to control. Sandy thinks Ben is the most attractive man she has ever met. Not to mention a wonderful father. But she has secrets. The kind that have ran other men off. And she's afraid of what may happen. But as they become more involved she can't fight her feelings for Ben or Lily and knows she must come clean about who she is and her family. Will she be able to make Ben see through the far fetched truth that is her life to make a life with her? Will Lily get her Mommy for Christmas? Can't wait for the next one!

What a delightful story about Ben Winchester and Sandy Claus in Christmas Town, Tennessee. It is light and the town is full of a contagious joyous spirit that is found in everyone. What a fantastic place to live! Ben has come to Christmas Town from his home in Stafford, Virginia for his sister Hannah's wedding. He brings his adorable eight-year-old daughter, Lily with him. Ben always has a tough time near Christmas, as his wife died four years ago. He has been a really good dad to Lily, but his sadness has carried through. Sandy runs the Snow Globe Gallery and is all about celebrating Christmas year round, entrancing both Ben and Lily. Her home is even decorated year round. There are surprises and secrets that are revealed as you find out more about both Sandy and Ben, and I recommend this sweet magical story about happiness found in Christmas Town. [I received an early copy of this book for review and my opinion is my own.]

A Mommy for Christmas is a light closed door romance, that’s overly sweet. Ben Winchester is a single father to an eight-year-old little girl, Lily. Sandy Claus is a gallery owner and one of Ben’s sister's best friends. While in town for his sister’s pre-wedding party the two bump into each other at Hannah’s cookie shop. The Christmas Cookie Shop is known to make inspired cookies. This time of year, the Commitment Cookie (believed to inspire true love) is very popular. After this encounter, the two can't seem to stop thinking about each other. Their attraction intensifies after Ben mistakenly eats a Commitment Cookie given to him by Sandy. I really liked the characters of Ben, Sandy, and Lily. Together, they make a lovely family unit. Lily is very pushy in wanting a Mommy and she doesn’t hide that fact. I love that Ginny Baird throws in little clues as to who future couples are going to be. Even little Lily is hinted at having a relationship when she’s older. A Mommy for Christmas was truly an enjoyable read. I just found the story to be a little too sweet for my taste. I also found myself questioning the actions of Ben and Sandy and wondering if they were truly sincere. I know that’s an odd thing to say, but I really wanted to know if Ben and Sandy fell for each other naturally or if Ben eating a cookie given to him by Sandy sparked their relationship. I also found myself comparing this story to the first book in the series, The Christmas Cookie Shop. I LOVED that story and it was just a little hard for me not to compare the two. A Mommy for Christmas is a standalone read, however you will definitely want to read all the books in the series. I think you’ll find yourself invested in the secondary characters just as much as the main characters and wanting to see them get their happily-ever-afters as well.

Return to Christmas Town, Tennessee in this new installment. This time, we get to read about Hannah's older brother, Ben Winchester, his daughter, Lily, and Hannah's best friend, Sandy Claus. Ben is an attorney and is in Christmas Town to participate in Hannah's wedding as well as to watch Hannah's cats while she's on her honeymoon. In the meantime, he meets Sandy who he's immediately attracted to. However, he's still struggling with the death of his wife, not to mention the fact that he plans to return to his home in Virginia. Sandy has a secret that has proven to scare men away before. Therefore, when she feels the attraction to Ben, she fights it as hard as she can. However, as her brother, Nick, points out, maybe he's "the one?" What follows is a fun, light hearted romp around in the snow with some cute, mild paranormal thrown in for good measure. Enjoy reading about all the antics that Sandy tries as she attempts to keep Ben at arm's length. Then, fall in love with Ben's daughter, Lily, as she charms everyone in town. Finally, catch up with all the other local citizens of Christmas Town who will quickly become your friends. My one criticism is that the beginning few chapters felt slow to me, but the pace picked up somewhere around 30%. Romance - steamy PG - multiple kisses and one referenced / off camera romance Language - clean My rating - 4 stars.

I loved this wonderful whimsical story that fills your heart with the spirit of the season. Single dad Ben Winchester and his young daughter Lily are in Christmas Town housesitting for his sister over the holidays. The longer they stay the more the little town grows on them as does the attraction between Ben and artist Sandy Claus. But Sandy is a very unique lady. Can Ben handle her crazy family ties??? Don't miss this one!!
