The Christmas Secret by Jeannie Watt

Trapped in a cabin in a raging blizzard with the one man on earth who could turn her world upside down...this Christmas holiday was not playing out at all the way Lil Reynolds had planned. Not even close.

When Lil's former fiancé chose to marry on Christmas Eve--the day he and Lil had planned to marry one year ago--she knew she had to get out of town for the holidays. Heading to the isolated family cabin seemed like the perfect solution, until the blizzard came...and a man showed up at her door in the heart of the storm. Casey Lanigan. Her ex-fiancé's brother. A man with whom she shared a secret summer romance many years ago. A man who'd betrayed her trust. A man who, despite everything, still made her heart beat a little harder...

So much for a Lanigan-free holiday.

Christmas Secret is a 2nd chance at love story. How two 21 year olds walked away from love than 8 years later rediscovered each other. Second book Montana Secret is the other cute story. Enjoyed both. joy943

This book actually included 2 short stories. Both were a bit predictable but enjoyable.

Last in the Cherry Lake series. We first meet Lil in The Secret Bride as Jacie’s best friend. Finally it is Lil’s story and what actually happened between her and Curtis. Thinking she will be at the cabin alone for Christmas, Lil is looking forward to peace and quiet. That is until a knock at the door brings her face to face with Casey, her ex and Curtis’s brother. So much for a quiet Christmas! Especially since the storm means they will be snowed in together. For how long though, she isn’t all too sure. I absolutely loved this series! Hoping for more of Cherry Lake in the near future!

More secrets in Cherry lake, oh how I love this series. Lil's ex fiance is getting married, on the day that they were supposed to be married so she has decided to hole herself up in the family cabin. Not expecting anyone, but Casey shows up stranded. He is her ex fiance's brother. Whom she had a summer fling with a few years back. They soon find out that they still have feeling for each other, a bit of miscommunication and wild times from years back. Loved how they reconnected and how boys really do grow up and change. I recommend this book. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.

Snowed in during Christmas in a cozy little cabin with a love for the past; Awesome! Lil wants some alone time because her ex is getting married, and the whole town is looking at her with sad looks; even though Lil was the one who broke it off with him. Casey goes up to his family's cabin to retrieve his stuff because he is leaving town because his dad is a jerk, and Casey is tired of it; he is also the brother of Lil's ex, and on his way back into town he gets caught in a storm, but as luck would have it, he is near Lil's cabin, so he takes refuge there. Lil and Casey had a relationship when they were younger, but Casey did some things that negatively affected Lil and his relationship, so there is some awkward tension between them at first, and some hurt feelings. I really enjoyed this! This is a short story, and I think it had good pacing, but I do think it took a bit too long before Lil and Casey began to get over some of their issues; Lil was a bit too bitter for my liking, and I also think the addition of the wedding scenes could have been omitted, but I pretty much loved all the aspects of this story. I love second chance romance during Christmas stories, and add in the stranded in a cabin, and I love it even more! I liked the backstory for Lil and Casey, and I think they were really cute together, and Casey is adorable. A short, sweet romance!

While the storm rages, and the blizzard is freezing the scenery, in the cozy cabin old feelings are unearthed, and heating up the air. Casey and Lil had both hurt each other years ago, when their young ways parted. Lots of water had gone under that bridge, but now, having to face each other again, being stranded in the cabin in a blizzard, things get real, uncomfortable, and hard. But while they were determined not to dwell in the past and hurt feelings, and while doing Christmas things, like playing cards, cooking and baking, just surviving in the natural disaster outside, also the good, warm, caring, passionate feelings are uncovered, and acted upon. Nothing is solved permanently, nothing is rushed upon. But a lot of old wounds and hurts are healed, the promises of making an effort, for a better tomorrow and future memories are agreed on. The whole family gets a chance to start fresh, into a different, healthier direction, and love wins all around, in this touching, heartwarming, and genuine Christmas story. ~ Four Spoons

This is a cute story if you don't have a problem with someone hooking up with brothers at different times.

The Christmas Secret by Jeannie Watt was a very enjoyable read over the Holidays. It had a nice flow and presented a good writing style that kept the reader wanting to turn the pages. Nice characters and a good story line.

Lil is not having a good day, heck her whole year has been crappy, since last Christmas Eve- her wedding day. Leaving the Cherry Lake area to spend the holidays alone and to try to get some peace back into her life, she heads to her cabin. Not only does a blizzard happen, but she gets an unwanted visitor. I enjoyed this Christmas story that has some great moments of love, holiday spirit and forgiveness. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
