    Beautifully written novella by Jessie Evans

    Jessie Evans at her best! Another outstanding novella that keeps you interested and engaged throughout. All I can say is "Love me some cowboy....Giddyup"

    GNOMES!

    First thing to come to mind is AWE! The first chapter of this book broke my heart and made me cry. Thank God it perks up from there with a very endearing story of Carter winning back Lula. Add to that a bunch of crazy gnomes and a bit of a Christmas miracle and you have a wonderful book. Excellent Job Jessie, another hit in this series. I'm ready to read Diamonds and Dust now ;)

    Perfect Novella!

    Some people don’t like novellas. I happen to love them. Especially Jessie Evans' novellas. It takes a brilliant writer to get everything you need, want and love into a short book! This book has 2 of my favorite things: it takes place at Christmas and it's a second chance romance! Lula Jo and Carter were in love and planning to spend forever together, but he leaves to follow his career dreams. Years later he comes back to town and wants Lula Jo back. She puts up a good fight, but her body quickly remembers Carter. Her mind is a little slower to believe that he's back for good and wants her. Can she forget the pain and loss she felt when he left? Can she let him in again? He has 12 dates to convince her that he loves her. Can he do it? I love this series and I can't wait for Diamonds and Dust! "Play with me," Cater said, his voice husky. "I'm yours." "Don't ever leave. Stay here forever." "Yes, ma'am," he drawled. "Though we might get some funny looks if we go down to serve customers naked and tangled up."

    Carter...

    A really enjoyable novella with gnomes!! Great story, and while I could have read more about Carter and Lula Jo I didnt feel anything was missing with this being a novella. Happy Christmas reading..

    Review: Twelve Dates of Christmas (#2.5)

    Twelve Dates of Christmas: The Ballad of Lula Joe by Jessie Evans is a novella in her series. This is the sweetly tragic tale of young love gone wrong and second chances and all they can bring. Lula and Carter were in love - until he insisted on leaving Lonesome Point and she refused. The turn of events around this forever soured Christmas time for Lula, and while she put on a good face year after year, inside she was Scrooge and The Grinch all rolled into one. When the appearance of a Christmas garden gnome threatens to rock her world all bets are off and there is no more room for bah-humbug and small hearts. A heart-warming, well-paced Christmas time story with Characters that you feel like you know and appearances from old friends from other books in the series. One of my favorite authors - highly recommend!
