Back Cover Blurb:

Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks. So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers.

But Willa Knightly is not the conniving woman he expects to find. Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart. And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.

My Review:

Goodness, I love Bramble House! It’s one of those rare story settings that I feel a need to visit. Carmichael returns to it with this sweet, emotional Christmas tale, painting it in all its glory. Throughout this well written novel Carmichael not only brings Christmas in Marietta to life, she also tells a tale that both broke my heart and gave new meaning to Christmas and forgiveness. I loved the many aspects that came together to create this complete picture.

Finn & Willa were quite the pair in this story. Both kept secrets, and both fell in love without meaning to. They were also entertaining individuals. Finn’s need to know what happened to his father while also being true to himself really drew me in. Willa’s past & fears made her real and into someone that I truly cared for. Scout broke my heart. His little fighting nature was the perfect addition to this Christmas tale. And one can’t forget Kris Krinkle. This secondary character definitely made Christmas so much sweeter.

Once again Carmichael has brought the spirit of Christmas to life with the tip of her pen. This was a fun, family Christmas story with one heck of a twist.
