Will working together
…lead to together forever?
Recently divorced, Parker Davis needs to focus on his new job so he can provide a stable home for his daughter in time for the Christmas holidays. The problem is, he’s frequently at odds with his boss. He and Emma O’Connell approach everything differently. Yet he finds her intriguing, and Bluestone River festivities keep pushing them together—often enough that two people at odds could find themselves evenly matched in love!
In My Opinion
I was so excited that Emma is the heroine in The Christmas Kiss. While The Christmas Kiss is a stand alone story, the previous book gave me a proper introduction to this woman and some of her history. In fact, I was a little disappointed we didn’t get some of those details (specifically regarding Emma’s finances and her injuries) in this second book, which focuses on Parker’s backstory.
That said, I adored visiting this community and its residents again. The added Bluestone Holiday celebrations added to the charm of the book. The romance, while fairly fast, progresses in a believable manner.
Emma and Parker are acquaintances who become friends who become more. They have disagreements but are fast to communicate what’s behind their opinions and words and just as quick to apologize, forgive, and forget.
I look forward to finding out what’s next for Bluestone River.
