Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Love at the Chocolate Shop ＃3
Title: Montana Secret Santa by Debra Salonen
Author: Debra Salonen
Publisher: Montana Born, Tule Publishing
Published: December 1st, 2016
This is a great addition to the Montana festive reads by a variety of authors that Tule are publishing this year. It involves the characters attending many of the events that are common to all the books – like the Christmas Stroll and the Christmas Ball – but it is also a great standalone story in its own right.
In this tale, Krista Martin is about to spend her second festive season in the town after starting up in a publicity business with a locally born friend. However, that same friend recently married and is now pregnant, so asks Krista to take over her role on the committee fir the secret Santa charity which tries to bring some festive joy into the lives of people who might otherwise miss out through no fault of their own.
Meanwhile, local nerd, genius and millionaire, Jonah Andrews has retuned home to look after the tree dogs belonging to his parents whilst they travel to help out his recently widowed sister and her children. He wasn’t anticipating being involved with any charity committee but, after his dog walking almost injured Krista, he’s quite happy to have an excuse to meet up with her again!
As the two work together to help fulfill the dreams of others, maybe Santa can work a little of his magic and her these two also find the miracle of love at Christmas!
I was gifted an ARC of this novel via NetGalley with no obligation or requirement to review it. This is my honest review after reading the ARC.
Ad exec Krista Martin, while feeling more Grinch than elf, still jumps at the chance to co-chair Marietta’s Secret Santa Society. Why not? Especially since brilliant, attractive, and innovative tech wunderkind Jonah Andrews has agreed to help. He’s well connected and Krista’s hoping for some advice on rebooting her career.
Jonah knows Krista has a not-so-hidden agenda, but sparring with her over cocoa at their Secret Santa meetings is the most fun he’s had since returning to his old hometown. Krista may come across as all business, but Jonah’s positive he’s glimpsed a little girl inside her who wants to believe in Santa… and in love.
