Welcome back to Hollow Bend, Kentucky, where love (and laughter) are just around the corner. When Andrew Bateman rolls into town in the midst of a snow storm, his first thought is that the place is hardly big enough for a dog crate, let alone the vet practice he’s looking for. Next thing he knows, his life is flashing in front of him—a depressingly short flash—as he skids right into the side of the local bar.
Things start looking up when the vision he wakes to is not the Angel of Death, but a doctor. Well, actually a vet. Make that a vet tech, wearing red mittens. Who invites him home, where every inch is covered in holiday sparkles, cookies to be decorated, and an odd assortment of stray dogs, cats and puppies…
There’s nothing merrier than a white Christmas in Kentucky!
This was a very quick little Christmas story without a lot of substance. We barely have time to get to know the two main characters before they have jumped into bed together. I didn't feel any real connection between Andrew and Billie, they just seem to be thrown together by chance and they go along with it.
We briefly meet a few friend of Billie's and her father but not enough time is spent on any of them. The whole story felt like it was just written very quickly without a lot of thought. If you are looking for a quick Christmas story to read during this time of year you might enjoy this one, if you are looking for something with a little more heart and Christmas spirit I think you can do better. The best part of this book for me was the cover!
I am a stay at home mom of three kids who loves to read. I have always been a reader, but I have been reading even more recently and have found some amazing books. My favorite genres are historical fiction and classics. I also try to read lots of other types of books, but I always come back to my favorites.
