Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The Gallagher’s of Montana #3
Title: The Doctor’s Christmas Proposal
Author: Eve Gaddy
Publisher: Montana Born, Tule Publishing
Published: November 17th, 2016
This is the third novel in this Marietta, Montana series. After the dramatic breakdown of his relationship with his fiancé, Dr Wyatt Gallagher’s immediate reaction was to seek out his best friend, Mia Watson. He’s unaware that she’s been in love with him for years but he finds consolation in her arms. However, he then returns back to his home town and rarely contacts her, even though he’s really missing her and has vivid memories of their night together. Months later, he invites her to spend the festive holiday with him and his family, claiming he needs her support whilst one of his brothers gets married and another expects to become a father. She is reluctant to agree but can’t resist. Once she arrives, their heart warming tale makes this a delightful festive read.
This is an enjoyable addition to this year’s Marietta reads. It contains characters who star in other stories by other authors and many of the same events. The lead characters are emotively portrayed, making it easy to empathise with them and keeping you hoping things will work out for them in the end. There are some surprises and unexpected twists to keep you guessing and I have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone who enjoys cuddling up with a cosy festive romance set in this delightful community.
I requested and received an ARC of this novella NetGalley. This is my honest review.
Betrayed by his ex-fiancée, Dr. Wyatt Gallagher turns to the one woman he can always trust – his best friend, Mia Watson. After moving away, Wyatt has realized he wants more than friendship with the beautiful artist. With that in mind, he convinces Mia to come to Marietta for the Christmas holidays. But wooing Mia is surprisingly difficult — especially given the passionate night they’ve already shared.
Though Mia Watson has loved Wyatt Gallagher for years, he’s always seen her as a friend, never a lover. Except for one unforgettable interlude when comfort turned to passion. Then Wyatt moved back to Montana, leaving Mia with an unexpected consequence of their night together–and soon, heartbreak to follow.
Faced with the fulfillment of her dreams, Mia knows she must reveal the consequences of their night together to Wyatt. But having withheld the truth for so long, will her confession destroy his trust in her, ending their friendship and any hope of a future together?
