  • An attraction that cannot be denied

    On the surface of things, Ivy McLain appears to be a bright, happy, and smiling artist, but beneath the mask, she is suffering from the same insecurities she experienced growing up in the small Idaho town. She has hardly been back in town a few hours before running into her nemeses and rubber-banded back into her high school years. The problem with wearing a mask and telling everyone how successful she is, only creates complications, especially when her well-laid plans fall apart. Austin Bishop, on the other hand, has had his life torn apart by his parents’ betrayal, which resulted in his fiancé breaking off their engagement. Just when he begins to trust Ivy, he finds that she has been keeping secrets and he experiences her lies of omission as a major betrayal. Ivy and Austin have an undeniable attraction that zaps between them, but due to their brokenness, they both have difficulties fully committing to one another. It takes a catalyst moment for each of them to realise the truth. This story highlights the impact of childhood bullying on a person and the insecurities that it creates. It also shows how in spite of the fear of rejection, a person can nevertheless grow into a talented adult, especially after they have faced their childhood fears. This book is well written and although it is part of a series, it is nevertheless a standalone and does end on a very positive note. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Even sweeter

    Ivy has always felt that she loved in her sister's shadow. Iris was wonderful at everything and she could do nothing. Add to that two nemesis, who made her life hell by tormenting her, all through school, and Ivy feels she has plenty of reasons to me miserable. The only thing that keeps her young is her art. She grows to hate the small town she grew up in. She left right after graduation. Unfortunately, no matter how hard she tries, Ivy isn't happy in her new life. She waits tables to get by and tries to build up her art business. Ivy comes home for her parents' anniversary party and runs into the hottest guy. Sparks fly, until one of the girls who taunted her comes up and latches on to him. Through a series of events, Ivy winds up stuck in her hometown for a few extra weeks. She realizes that because of her absence, everything she has back in San Francisco will be gone. She worries over this and how to tell her family. But in the meantime, she gies out on a few dates with the hunk from the anniversary party and falls in love. He has no clue what her life is really like either. Finally, Ivy can no longer live with the deception. She blurts everything out. Will she be able to rebuild her relationship with the hunk and her family? This book is great. I anxiously await anything that Erin Wright writes. This latest addition to the Long Valley series didn't disappoint.

  • You may need the Kleenex

    Ivy and Austin both have baggage, but their friendship that turns into romance is sweet and easy. Until Ivy lets the last shoe drop. This tale is so heartbreaking at times, but not depressing. There is hope right along with it. These everyday Joe characters are fully formed and make you feel like their friend. At the end maybe a happy tear, at least a smile and a sigh.😌

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartwarming romance

    Christmas of Love is more than just a heartwarming romance. Long Valley sounds like a wonderful place to live. but Ivy was bullied in high school. Fourteen years and a half years later she still is running. In this book, Ivy has to learn to accept herself, decide what she really wants and go after it before she will be ready for a true romance. Austin has his own issues. I love how Ms. Wright makes her characters so believable, helps them overcome their issues and gets them to an HEA. As usual, clear some time for this book because you will not be able to put it down!

    Thanks for your feedback!
