Many thanks to Dorothy and Pump Up Your Book for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A sweet Christmas read where a non profit organization run by Livi lost a major donation made by the Hightower companies run by Guy, and there were words exchanged. Until serendipity played a part, and Guy was stranded in her town a few days before Christmas. False identity, final reveal, and love finding its way made this book complete.
Sheila Roberts has written a fun story where the pages turned fast. Warmth and cheer of Christmas could be felt as sweet as the chocolate fruitcake that the duo tasted. False identity showed Guy what he was missing about Christmas. Grinch having a turn of heart was well depicted.
Livi was too fixated on the donation, it was ironical when she uttered the words admitting that she felt entitled to the donation for her non- profit organization. Small town love and generosity added to the Chrismassy mood. A short fun read over breakfast.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Sheila Roberts is happily married and lives in the Pacific Northwest. Her books are best-sellers, and have been made into movies for the Lifetime and Hallmark channels. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with her hubby or girlfriends, she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate
Sometimes you need to look beyond the big picture to see what really matters
Olivia Berg’s charity, Christmas from the Heart, has helped generations of families in need in Pine River, Washington, but this year might be the end of the road. Hightower Enterprises, one of their biggest donors since way back when Olivia’s grandmother ran the charity, has been taken over by Ebenezer Scrooge the Second, aka CFO Guy Hightower, and he’s declared there will be no more money coming to Christmas from the Heart.
Guy is simply being practical. Hightower Enterprises needs to tighten its belt, and when you don’t have money to spare, you don’t have money to share. You’d think even the pushy Olivia Berg could understand that.
With charitable donations dwindling, Olivia’s Christmas budget depends on Hightower’s contribution. She’s focused her whole life on helping this small town, even putting her love life on hold to support her mission.
When Guy’s Maserati breaks down at the edge of the Cascade foothills, he’s relieved to be rescued by a pretty young woman who drives him to the nearby town of Pine River. Until he realizes his rescuer is none other than Olivia Berg. What’s a Scrooge to do? Plug his nose and eat fruitcake and hope she doesn’t learn his true identity before he can get out of town. What could go wrong?

I’m getting into the Christmas books early this year as well, but it feels odd when it is so hot outside
At my end of the planet too… 🤷🏻♀️
You are finding a lot of new Christmasy books! Enjoy!
I read and enjoyed this story as well Shalini. You are right, she did fixate so much on that donation that she almost missed out. Great review.
Thank you Carla. I didn’t like her much but overall it was a cute story
