A Little Christmas Magic is about more than just Christmas. It shows the recovery and rediscovery after losing a loved one. Holly made sure that she followed all of her late husband’s wishes and now is going to meet up with his ‘brothers’ to honor his life. Then she is going to put her wants first; she wants to be a mother. Trey has opened his home for the gathering and has a plan to try to win the heart of the woman he has loved since day one, his best friend's girl. But now since he is no longer around and he made a promise to take care of her, that is what he hopes to be able to do. What will happen with Holly and Trey's plans? Will either get what they want? I enjoyed reading this story, and I definitely recommend it.

When Holly brings together her deseased husbands Navy Seal's Band of Brothers to take care of his final ashes more happens than she expects. A touching story that I enjoyed. I hope there will be more with these characters in future books.

I truly enjoyed A Little Christmas Magic by Barbara Ankrum. After the death of her husband Tommy and a year of scattering his ashes around the world, Holly McGuire returns to his home town of Marietta, Montana hoping to find closure and a new start to her life. The tight group of guys who served with her husband, the Band of Brothers, agreed to meet in Marietta, staying at the Marietta home of Trey Reyes as they honor Tommy. Trey promised Tommy to watch over Holly if anything happened to him. Trey and Holly have had a secret attraction for each other, which neither would act on while Holly was married. Now that Tommy is gone, can these two allow themselves a chance at happiness together, acting on their spark of attraction? Hopefully, the magic of Marietta along with it being Christmas time will help these two find the answers they need. I really loved enjoyed this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading this book in one day. Ms. Ankrum drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I recommend this book to other readers and cannot wait for Ms. Ankrum’s next book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Holly McGuire has spent a year travelling the world as her late husbands final wishes. As the last part of her journey she is headed to Marietta Montana to meet up with his old Marine brothers. Trey Reyes is anxious for Holly to arrive in Montana and is hoping to win her heart by the end of her visit. Holly is only looking for one thing and its not love, but a baby of her own. Holly and Trey have been attracted to one another for years but never acted on it. Can the two find a future together or is Trey too much like her late husband? I loved this book! Holly and Trey's characters were perfect! The story telling made me feel like i was there in Montana.

Loved this Christmas story of starting over. Holly was married for nine years to the military and now she is ready to lay her husband to rest and start over. The one thing she has always wanted is a baby, no strings attached. She has returned to Marietta for her last journey, when she runs into her husband's best friend, Trey and sparks fly. Trey has always had feelings for Holly. Now with the little magic of Christmas make their dreams come true. Great characters that show so much emotion. Great to catch up with Canadays. Love Christmas in Marietta!!

An excellent and very enjoyable story. Loved these characters and their story made for a very relaxing afternoon read. Holly McGuire spent many years alone and lonely as her husband first served in the military then spent most of his time off on one adventure after another. He'd always promise to settle down and start a family but that time never came. After one of his adventures became deadly, Holly has spent the last year on an adventure of her own. Now she's ready to settle down and start that family. All on her own. Well except for that one little thing she needs a man for but she has a plan for that. All she has to do is get through the visit to Marietta without Trey Reyes finding out her plan. While she would love to have Trey involved she knows Trey is not a man that would walk away and let her raise the child on her own. Can she pull this miracle off?? Definitely a recommended read.

A Little Christmas Magic by Barbara Ankrum Marietta, Montana is a place that one can expect the unexpected…ghosts, magic, true love and more. In this holiday story Holly McGuire and Trey Reyes star and do find their way to a HEA. Holly loved her husband Tommy and stayed with him through thick and thin giving up some of her dreams along the way. Having fulfilled her husband’s last request as mentioned in his will she is finally ready to move on and fulfill her biggest dream of all – to be a mother. Tommy’s compatriots from the military are a “band of brothers” and come together to send him off with Holly – in Marietta – where anything can happen. Trey Reyes, one of the “brothers” has loved Holly since the first time he set eyes on her BUT he kept his longings to himself for nearly a decade. Knowing she was coming to town his agenda had more to do with wooing and winning Holly than saying goodbye to Tommy. With a bit of help from Mick (another brother) and some magical happenings there is hope for him and Holly in spite of a bit of a glitch. Heartwarming, perhaps a bit predictable and definitely logic defying this is a fun holiday story that makes me want to read more about Marietta and all that can happen there. I wonder if more of the “brothers” will have stories of their own? Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
