This is a short and heart warming novel about all the Bradens and the loving Family that they really are. I am in love with all those hunks and their strong female wives (and now children.) Their father will always hold a special place in my heart-as will the horse, This one is not as steamy as some of the others--there are children under foot. I did need a tissue or two at the end---but they were very happy tears for sure!

The Christmas novella about the Braden clan is a wonderful short story that has all the updates about the family. How it all began with Hal and Adriana all the way down the line with their children and grand children. It’s a great way to spend time in their world, but bring that box of tissues! I cried through the end, not from sadness but from a touching ending. This was a heartwarming read. Melissa Foster, thank you for the Christmas gift of this story for your avid readers.

What a great way to catch up with the Braden family! We learn about their holiday traditions and get to see how incredible those hunky Braden men are as husbands and dads. The bond between this family is absolutely amazing and it's not just those born into the family but also those that marry in. The gift Hal receives at the end had me reaching for a tissue! This is a quick read that you'll enjoy and wish had another chapter or two! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

OMG....I loved this novella. What a great way to get us caught up with all the “original” Bradens. I love getting a better look at them and their growing family.

I always hat letting go of characters I love when the story is over. Ms. Foster has a wonderful way of giving us peeks of those characters in other stories, but this was even better. We got to catch up with the Weston Braden's and to make it even better it was a Christmas story. This was a great short read!

One of my favorite reads. I absolutely love this book. Seeing all the family together and the news that a lot of them have is the best (sorry can’t tell you the news and spoil it for you). This was a short story but so very worth the time. I love catching up with all the Braden’s and being reminded of each and every Braden grandbaby. I loved spending Christmas with the Braden’s and their crazy antics. And just like every other Braden book the heat is still there, with couples sneaking away to be alone while their siblings are watching their kids. LOL Of course, it was also nice to get to read a little more about Hal and Adriana. Get ready for a wild ride with this bunch. They are truly a lot of fun!

I absolutely adored this short story and spending Christmas Eve with the Braden family who started it all. I loved catching up with some of my favorite couples! I love that they keep the big Christmas Eve sleepover alive no matter how many of them their are. It’s so special for Hal, his children all the grandchildren to continue something their mom held so dear! It was great to see how parenting has changed, or not changed in this case, the incredible love and devotion all of these wonderful couples have for each other, their children and their whole crazy, wonderful family. I laughed, I swooned and I cried. It was perfect!

Loved loved loved this novelette !!!! What a great idea to let us peek into our beloved Braden’s clan and see them all reunited around the celebration of Christmas and their family traditions! A quick page turner story, short but filled with so much love and emotions you are guaranteed to get deeply touched and run for the tissues! I laugh, smiled and cried along the books and I simply adored it! It’s nice to get an update on each of the Braden’s and their lovely little families! I truly hope Melissa Foster will drop another one of those wonderful surprised bomb our way with more novelettes!

I just love the Braden’s. This beautiful Christmas novella is packed with emotion. I couldn’t see the words through my tears. Melissa Foster has given her readers what they have asked for in spades. A 10 star read!

A Very Braden Christmas by Melissa Foster This was such a welcome gift to us, the readers who LOVE the Braden’s! To visit with the Braden clan at such a special holiday and catch up on their lives, I didn’t want the novella to end. This is the family that started it all and to see these alpha males and their feisty wives deal with the everyday issues of raising a family was wonderful. In particular there is a touching scene revolving around a first kiss that is swoon worthy. Hal is THE BEST! His unending love for Adriana is beautiful, endearing and heartbreaking, all at the same time. He is the man to measure all men against. He raised his children to be the men and woman we’ve grown to love. You will forget this is a fictitious family from book one. If you haven’t read the Braden’s of Weston you’re in for a wonderful treat. Be prepared to shed real tears, it’s that touching and heart warming!

This is a Christmas novelette from the very characters that made me love Melissa Foster. It is very sweet, emotional and makes me love them more. It is wonderful to see again these characters and how they are now with kids and families of their own. If you don't know them it is worth to read the Love in Bloom series by the order and if you know them you will love them more.
