    Montana Secret Santa

    Montana Secret Santa by Debra Salone was a very enjoyable read that really brought small town Marietta, Montana to life! Krista has found a home in Marietta, starting her own business with her friend and being away from the drama of her family. Jonah is brilliant and rich. A Montana born boy who has moved on, he is only back for a brief time. Neither of them has the time or energy for a relationship, and neither of them actually wants one. From their first meeting an attraction is palpable, and soon they find themselves immersed in working for Marietta's Secret Santa Society. As they spend more time together, the season of giving, happiness, and hope starts to become so much more...but it can't possibly be a forever thing, or can it? Montana Secret Santa is the story of Krista and Jonah. It is about them, with strong secondary characters and plots that enhance the main plot instead of distracting from it. Krista and Jonah may come from different worlds from each other and the reader, but I found them to be relatable, realistic and believable. For me they were like the people I might meet in a cafe or just down the street. I liked them, and I liked that real life feeling of the unexpected and the challenges they faced. I felt like I got to know them. As the story progresses, they both experience a lot of growth. I liked that they were mature characters, and there is a distinct lack of angst which resonates with their maturity. Debra Salone writes an emotional, touching story in Montana Secret Santa, and I liked that all parts of their present day life pull together and bring these characters to life. Montana Secret Santa was a story that gave me not only a holiday feeling, but a variety of other emotions from hope, sadness, courage, caring and love. I'd recommend Montana Secret Santa to any romance reader!

    Montana Secret Santa

    Montana Secret Santa by Debra Salonen is book number three in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. This is Krista Martin and Jonah Andrews' story. This was a cute story where two opposites were thrown together to organize and work on the Secret Santa project. I enjoyed watching Krista and Jonah’s relationship grow. The dogs were a great addition to the story. I loved how Krista and Jonah fulfilled a need for each other that was missing. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    What will he do without her?

    Krista has been working hard for the last 18 months and is satisfied with the way her life is going. Then she runs into Jonah or rather Jonah's dog runs into her. Jonah has sold his company for a ton of money and now he doesn't know what he is going to do with himself. He agrees to dog sit while his parents were with is sister in Florida. At least that will keep him busy for a little while. Then he and Bindi run into Krista. They are working together on the Secret Santa committee and they are attracted to each other but can't see it going anywhere as Jonah will probably be leaving in a month or so. Then Krista's crazy family came to Montana for Christmas. Krista's world has been turned upside down and Jonah has gone back to his home in California. What will she do without him and he is wondering what he will do without her.

    Chocolate, Dogs and Romance!!

    The perfect addition to Love at the Chocolate Shop, what's not to love, Christmas, Chocolate , Dogs and of course a Romance. From their very first meeting, Krista and Jonah, falling down on the ice while Jonah was trying to walk the dogs, I fell in love with these characters. They co chair the Secret Santa Society, there is an instant chemistry which they try to fight off. Do they have the same wish in Santa's ear? I highly recommend this book with a cup of Hot Chocolate ( I will just dream that it's from Sages).

    From Skeptic & Cynic to Selfless Santas! 4.2

    > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Water-color effect illustrated cover. Charming and Whimsical. Fun synopsis. > > Looking Deeper < < Third-person POV. What happens when you mix a cynical scientist with a skeptical scrooge and add a dash of chocolate and a sprinkle of Christmas magic? You end up with a delightfully enjoyable romance. While both Jonah and Krista were both leery of love for different reasons, they could not help but feel it from the moment they first ran into each other, quite literally. Their chemistry was good and the relationship developed at a steady and natural, if not a little quick, pace. The secondary characters were fun and supportive, although I felt that - if given any more page space - Daniel would have tried to become a scene stealer. The dialogue and their interactions were believable. The plot was enjoyable and the writing style was very smooth. There were a few minor surprises, but little to no predictability. There were some conflicts, but they were all self-imposed and needed to be worked out maturely and intelligently between the leads over time, which they did. The conclusion left us with an implied HEA or "Happy for Now" ending, most likely to be touched on later in the series again by Ms. Salonen or, possibly, one of the other authors writing this series. Overall, this was a rather enjoyable story, and although it is part of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. However, it is my opinion that the reader would benefit from starting at the beginning to gain more knowledge of some of the key secondary characters. .
