    Wonderful

    It's always hard going home but for Rachel Chambers returning to Yuletide is a gut wrenching experience. The town hates her and her family. First, they think she broke the town's golden boy's heart. Then her father's embezzlement of town funds was the final straw. Rachel had run and built a good life in NYC. A pact with her girlfriends has her back in Yuletide to deal with the past and put it to rest. Easier said than done when she comes face to face with Gavin Blake. Even though he was part of the scandal the town seems to have forgiven him. Could he help her smooth things over?? A wonderfully done story that you shouldn't miss this season. A great story of second chances, forgiveness, and hope. I definitely recommend it.

    Christmas Love

    I truly enjoyed A Chance this Christmas by Joanne Rock, the third book in her Road to Romance series. When Rachel left her hometown the timing couldn’t have been worse. Her dad fled after embezzling money from the town, her ex-boyfriend hires a skywriter to propose to her, and she is caught kissing ex-boyfriend’s best friend Gavin. It was a relief for Rachel to reach design school and leave her troubles behind. Gavin attended a nearby prep school training to become a world class snowboarder. He enjoyed getting to know the teens in the town and interacting with them. After college and winning Olympic medals he returned to the town that never forgot Christmas, bought the house next door to Rachel’s mom and never forgot that kiss he shared with Rachel. When Rachel returns to Yuletide for the wedding of her best friend to her ex-boyfriend she hopes that the town will forgive her and to make amends with said ex-boyfriend. The chemistry and attraction Gavin and Rachel once shared is still there if not intensified. The more time these two spend together makes Rachel wonder if she can leave her dreams of NYC and give Gavin a second chance to explore the attraction and possible love they still share. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Rock drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I definitely recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    3,5****

    Christmas is the time for miracles, new beginnings, good tidings, and joy. The town of Yuletide seems to have forgotten what it used to stand for, with its year around Christmas celebration. Instead of generosity, kindness, and team spirits, everyone pulling together, there are a lot of negative undercurrents, greed, and unforgiveness, and false accusations. After eight long years, Rachel Chambers finally comes back home to Yuletide to face her past. One kiss at the wrong time as a young girl and it seems like the whole town turns against her, taking upon herself her father's sins as well as the blame of humiliating the town favorite son. Rachel has spunk, courage, kindness, and strength to a great measure. And she is going to need it all to face the town and their allegations. But most of all, she is going to need it when facing Gavin Blake again. Gavin is about eight years late, but now more than before he is fighting for Rachel, standing next to her as she faces the town and her former boyfriend Luke. I liked the spark and chemistry between Rachel and Gavin. The connection between them was magical, and the emotions churning between them were delightful. Rachel and Gavin obviously belong together, it was adorable to see them trying to find their way to each other again, after all the turbulent years between them. While I rejoiced about the connection between Gavin and Rachel, I struggled with the rest of the story. The negativity of the town that they still carried after eight years, the fact that Rachel even felt like she had to beg for forgiveness from Luke, while it was him who cost all the trouble, didn't sit with me well. I felt like that was such a big part of the story, but the resolution wasn't really there, Luke was getting married to someone else yet so focused on Rachel, the past, and all the negativity. Second chances and forgiveness, learning to move on, accepting your responsibility of the past, and finding a happiness for your future - there's a lot of simmering under the joyful Christmas celebration in the town of Yuletide, and each and everyone has to take a moment and evaluate their lives as Rachel and Gavin are fumbling towards their new beginnings while trying to amend the old wounds. ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
