Since tragedy estranged defense attorney Jenna Macintosh from her family, she's done her best to pretend Christmas doesn't exist. Not so easy this year when she needs to work with client Lacey Gallagher, who is living on her brother Sawyer's Christmas tree farm. All those fragrant pines dripping with twinkling lights are bad enough, but when disaster strikes, Jenna is stuck alone in a wooded cabin with Sawyer, the hottest man she's ever met.

Experience has taught Sawyer Gallagher that smart city women like Jenna don't want men like him, but when Jenna falls ill, he must abandon his plan to keep his distance and soon he's trying to work out ways to make her his--and not just for Christmas.

Good read!

3 - ”That’s a real gift you’ve got there…” Stars. The second book in the Montana Born Christmas duology didn’t quite live up to the high standards of its predecessor. To say the story-line between Sawyer and Jenna was a slow burner would be a bit of an understatement. I think the main issue that I had with the book is although it can completely be read as a standalone, a large portion of this book sort of rehashes a lot of what happened in Kat Latham’s offering Three Nights before Christmas but is told from a different couple perspective. I can kind of understand that there isn’t going to be a huge amount of sexy times between a couple who are dealing with a broken leg and Chicken Pox between them, but the chemistry from being holed up and quarantined together should have been intense and constant, and I didn’t get a lot of connection from this couple for a good 75% of the book. An easy enough book to read, I just expected a little more from this couple in the attraction stakes, there is a huge amount of internal monologue, but very little action. ARC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest review.

This is a lovely companion novella to Three Nights Before Christmas by Kat Latham. Both can be read as standalone stories, but have an interlinked plot in that the hero of this story, Sawyer, is the brother of Lacey, the heroine of Kat's story. This story is about Sawyer and Jenna, Lacey's lawyer. Sawyer's still trying to accept that his little sister ended up in jail for a crime she didn't commit but is finally coming home. Knowing he was unable to protect her, he still feels guilty about the whole situation, even though Lacey was responsible for her own choices. But what he doesn't expect is that Lacey's lawyer will show up at their family tree farm, and even worse, that she's going to stay overnight. Because she appears, on the outside at least, to be just like his ex - a successful business woman who'd have no interest in a down to earth guy of the land like him. And the attraction he feels for her is particularly inconvenient. But when a case of the chicken pox results in Jenna being stranded with Sawyer for a week, he soon learns that what's on the outside isn't what's on the inside. But will their fast friendship that soon comes with added benefits be enough to convince Jenna to consider a more permanent relationship? After reading Kat's story and getting a hint of what would happen with this couple, I was expecting something sweet and sexy and that's exactly what I got. Sawyer and Jenna definitely had some great chemistry, though it's a slow burn story (no surprise, since having chicken pox doesn't bode well for romance!). It gives them a chance to really know each other though, to get past the stereotypes and find out they have a lot in common underneath. They both harbour guilt and pain over incidents in their pasts, and sharing these things with each other just makes their bond that much tighter. Because it's novella length, the story takes place over a short span of time, but we get some sexy scenes, a lovely romance and a sweet epilogue. 4 stars.

A superb spicy mix, containing miscarriage of chickenpox, a lumberjack, lawyer, policeman, two accidents, misunderstandings, wrongs righted, Christmas and so much more! Jenna Macintosh is a lawyer and the pro bono case she’s working on at the moment concerns Lacey Gallagher who is due to be released from prison when the story starts. Jenna is going to take Lacey back to Marietta where she lives with her handsome brother, Sawyer. Unfortunately snowy weather is forecast and snow and Christmas are things Jenna tries to avoid after tragic events estranged her from her family. The Gallaghers own and run a Christmas tree farm and when Jenna meets Sawyer for the first time he’s belligerent, unwelcoming and somewhat rude because Jenna just isn’t how he’d thought a lawyer would be! However an accident gives him good reasons to reevaluate his opinion of her and when she develops chickenpox and is too ill to drive home he volunteers to look after her . . . . Jenna feels guilty over the death of her beloved young sister in a car crash where she was the driver. . . . . Sawyer feels guilty for not protecting Lacey from the bad influence of her ex-boyfriend and everything that ended up with her serving time in jail. These and other characters are portrayed brilliantly, you feel their sadness, regret and turmoil. It is a total emotional roller coaster with lots of twists, turns and changes in height and direction. They all mean well but mistakes are made and you just hope things will work out well in the end. It is another great Marietta romance written by a talented author who is a skilled wordsmith. It is a delectable novel that I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone looking for a very moving festive romance to read. Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

This book was a continuous emotional roll-a-coaster to me, and I loved every word of it. It goes deep into the emotions, both joy and despair, of the destiny Lacey have faced with being jailed, and now free after the three years. The responsibility that Sawyer feels for his sister, his worry for her future, and joy of being freed is all bundled up in a big ball of emotions inside of him. The sibling love Lacey and Sawyer have for each other is touching, but also fun with all the teasing and banter. And when life happens, and Sawyer ends up taking care of Lacey's hot lawyer, Jenna, all the lives are about to change forever. Sawyer and Jenna, in isolation in the cottage, get to know each other, while playing board games, watching movies, and spending time together. The bond between them is palpable, and they fit together so well. They both have deep personal wounds, issues they need to deal with. And together, by supporting the other, they work through the painful things, but not without taking some hits into their fragile relationship as well. I loved the story, the characters, and the setting of the Christmas tree farm. It went deep on the emotional side, at least for me, I laughed, was in tears, and just lived through this turmoil with the cast. There's a lot of love, Christmas spirit, passion, and forgiveness in this tale, and there's a pair for it, with Lacey's story as well. ~ Five Spoons

I loved how this book could be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. I would suggest reading the whole series because they are all great!

I really enjoyed this book and how Sawyer handled his sister Lacey going to prison and then being released. Meeting her lawyer Jenna and all that happened on the tree farm once an accident happened. I love stepping back into Marietta, especially at Christmastime. A quick, funny, romantic, light read. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this story. Making the heroine end up quarantined at the hero's house due to chicken pox was a fun storyline. I really like how this story complimented Three Nights Before Christmas, which I had read first. Both stories can be read alone, but if you read them both they add so much to each other and really complete the story. Jenna and Sawyer were great characters. Jenna was so caring and hard working and also was carrying quite the burden about her sister. Sawyer is just a great guy, but wants to fix things for people all the time. The chemistry between them was great. This one left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.

Sawyer is a great big brother, holding on to a lot of guilt and anger about his sister's incarceration. Running the family tree farm and looking after Lacey are basically his whole life. Jenna has been through some serious trauma and the holidays have lost their magic for her. She has taken on Lacey's case and manages to help her regain her life. While visiting Lacey, she and Sawyer grow closer and realize that the holiday's can be magical, that neither of them need to live swamped with guilt, and that sometimes the best things can come at the worst times imaginable. While visiting Lacey, she and Sawyer grow closer and realize that the holiday's can be magical, that neither of them need to live swamped with guilt, and that sometimes the best things can come at the worst times imaginable. I really loved the banter between Lacey and Sawyer and Jenna and Sawyer. I loved how Jenna and Sawyer took care of each other. It was really sweet and explained how they got in so deep so fast. Great read.

A different kind of Christmas story. The first time Jenna Macintosh met her client Lacey Gallagher's brother Sawyer, she didn't think much of him. The second time she met him, she couldn't forget him. While Jenna was visiting Lacey, Sawyer is hit by a car and his leg broken. Jenna was there to help Sawyer when Lacey was out working. The next day, Jenna comes down with chickenpox. This is not what she needed when she was due back at work soon. Lacey is sent to stay someplace else so she doesn’t come down with the pox too. Sawyer is there to help Jenna while she's recuperating. Being homebound together has its advantages. Jenna and Sawyer get to know each other very well after spending so much time together. Christmas is a sad time for Jenna because it brings back painful memories. Will Sawyer be able to help Jenna overcome those feelings and help her enjoy Christmas once again? A quick novella that can be read in one sitting. Very likable characters and storyline make this book one to put on your reading list this holiday season. You'll definitely fall in love with Jenna and Sawyer.

Another incredible holiday read from Tule Publishing! Celebrating Christmas isn't something Jenna McIntosh generally does. Being estranged from her father, the only family she has left, doesn't leave her in a celebratory mood. This year however, she finds herself stuck in a cabin on a tree farm, with one very sexy (if somewhat grumpy) Sawyer Gallagher. Attraction and chemistry are not to be denied with these two and they soon find themselves hoping for more. Will good intentions get in their way?? You want to grab a copy of this one and find out. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend it.
