    Contemporary Romance

    New Year’s at the Graff by Marin Thomas Holiday at the Graff # Lucas Kendrick is taking a few weeks off during the holidays and has chosen to go back to Marietta, Montana. Why? He was born there, wants to go back to thank those his mother left notes for and…just because. Marietta is a snowy, small town with a few quirky characters but also warm spirited and wonderful – as he soon finds out. Lucas has issues in his past to sort out and a future to figure out when he hits town. He pretty much falls for Ava Moore when he sees her the first time and their relationship flows fairly smoothly including her daughter Sophie and Mother-in-law Tilly rather seamlessly. Since Lucas lives in San Diego and is moving up at work and Ava is starting a new business in Montana it is not going to be easy to find a HEA…but…true love is worth working things out for and this story manages to do just that with tugs at the heart, family warmth, secrets shared, ghostly interference and a community rooting for the two of them. Sophie was a scene stealer. Tilly was wonderful. Lucas and Ava so deserved to end up with one another and their story was a joy to read. I have really been enjoying this series and look forward to reading the next one when it comes out. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

    Loevd it!!

    Can it be love at first sight? Lucas has returned to Marietta to thank everyone for helping his deceased mother thirty years ago as a young single mother when he meets Ava at the New Year Eve celebration at the Graff hotel. Ava is young single mom after her husband dies is the military. As their friendship develops, Lucas finds this is where his heart belongs. This is a must read this holiday season. Sophie. Ava's daughter stole the story, I just loved her. This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. Love Marietta at the holidays!!

    Sweet holiday story

    3.75 stars I grabbed this title because I have enjoyed books by the author in the past. I was a little hesitant because I mainly enjoy her cowboy books, but a New Year’s theme fits the season, and Marin Thomas hasn’t disappointed me yet, so New Year’s at the Graff was invited to occupy some space on my Kindle. Lucas is a San Diego businessman, and he’s been banned from his newly discovered family’s holiday celebration. After offending his father’s wife, he is invited to take some time off, using his father’s company credit card to pay for his departure. Since he has the time off, Lucas decides to head to Marietta. He was born there, and his single mom lived there briefly when he was a baby. Going through her belongings after her death, he discovered that she had wanted to thank the people who helped her out when she was pregnant, homeless, and penniless. Ava is a young widow, and she’s struggling to raise her young daughter, Sophie after her husband died in service to the country. Moving to Marietta, her mother-in-law helps her out. Ava works at the Graff, which helped her pay bills while she attended college. Now that she has a degree, she is attempting to start an organization that helps single mothers help themselves earn an education. When Ava and Lucas first set eyes on each other, they both feel a zing. Later, at the New Year’s Eve fund raiser, Ava and Lucas meet and they can’t deny the connection between them. Lucas, however, makes it clear that he has a job in San Diego that he will have to eventually go back to, because he feels that he has to prove himself to his father. He’s trying to get a real estate deal closed in Marietta, too, which he believes will cement his position at his father’s firm. Too bad it’s the same property that Ava wants to use for her new business. I really enjoyed this gentle story. Lucas, while tracking down the townspeople who gave his mother a helping hand when she most needed it, learns a lot about both her and himself. Because of his childhood, he has decided that having a family just isn’t for him. He watched his mom struggle to keep a roof over his head, and he doesn’t feel that he needs that kind of pressure in his life. Watching Ava and her daughter, though, he feels an instant connection with both of them. Ava is wary of allowing Lucas into their lives. She knows that he’s going to leave, and that Sophie will be broken hearted when he does. To protect her daughter, she tries to keep her distance from him. Lucas’ father makes an appearance, and I really liked the guy. I was not expecting to. He’s a little misguided and didn’t own up to his mistakes and his responsibility, but after getting to know Lucas, he accepts his blame and tries to make it up to his son. While I enjoyed the relationship between Ava and Lucas, it was the one that developed between Lucas and his father that I found most compelling This is a quick holiday read with a satisfying resolution. I am firmly convinced that both Ava and Lucas have found their HEA.
