    Excellent

    An excellent addition to the Bar V 5 series. This is a heartwarming story and perfect for an afternoon read that will help you capture the holiday feeling. The always chipper Ellie and the grumpy scrooge like Josiah were perfect for each other. This is one I highly recommend.

    Loved it!!

    What a great addition to the Bar V5 Ranch series. Loved the story of Ellie, whom embraces Christmas to the fullest and Josiah, known as Mr Grinch. Josiah has come to ranch to re cooperate after being very sick, Ellie works at the ranch. They have known each other growing up, Ellie was the younger sister of his best friend that passed away. Now can Ellie show Josiah, that "Christmas magic can work miracles". This is the perfect read for a cozy afternoon read in this busy holiday season. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.

    Clean & Charming Holiday Romance.

    * * Purchased and Provided by Netgalley in Exchange for an Honest Review. * * Judging a Book by it's Cover: Cover matches the theme. Happy, warm, inviting and romantic. I was a bit torn by synopsis, since it's tied to a series, I worried I'd feel left behind. But I was assured it could stand on it's own so opted to give it a try. I do like the hopeful holiday reads. Looking Deeper: Third person POV. I'd still consider this a novella, albeit on the longer side at just over 200 pages. Josiah really dislikes Christmas. Forced to take a month-long medical leave from his CEO position in the company he founded, during the holidays - to the festive dude ranch owned and operated by one of his best friends and influential board member at his company - just compounds his immediate dislike. Until she appears bearing cookies. Ellie grew up invisible, having a dying brother overshadowed much of her young life. But instead of letting it destroy her, she's make it her life goal to make others happy... on the ranch and her non-profit that she founded in her brother's honor. She's got big dreams and is working her hardest to make them happen. Lead characters are well-written and enjoyable. The secondary characters are mostly from books one and four, but you do not get an overwhelming sense of "What did I miss". Rather, there are points that truly make you want to backtrack to read their story, too. The chemistry and compatibility between Josiah and Ellie is gradual and natural. If you are expecting a hot and steamy book, this will not be the right one for you... it stayed clean throughout. Dialogue and interaction between the cast was enjoyable and fun. Not angsty or overly-dramatized. The plot was full, but not very dynamic - for the most part, it stayed steady. The flow was incredibly smooth. Most of the conflict came from Josiah's internalizations, but he'd quickly realize the errors of his ways. There was hardly any predictability at all. The conclusion was good: closed. I'd liked to have seen an epilogue detailing the outcome of the new project and what became of Pewter. Overall, it is a sweet, clean, holiday charmer that is filled with more tinsel and mistletoe than Santa's Workshop. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rating: 1.5 [G / PG] ~ Score: 4.2 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
