A few weeks before Halloween I got sucked into Christmas romance books, I've read them obsessively and exclusively for a few weeks. To be honest, the obsession hasn't gone away yet, I just ran out of Christmas books. :) (And a pile, physical and virtual of books that sadly doesn't have anything to do with Christmas. :))

My TBR does look so bad, but my reviews are very, very late. So it's a few days before Christmas, that I write about Christmas in Rose Bend. Of all the book Holiday books I've read this fall, this is probably my favorite. :)

On her death bed, Nessa's mother admitted that the man Nessa thought of as her father, is not her biological father. Now with both parents dead, she is left with her half-sister Ivy. She doesn't tell Ivy the truth, that they are not biologically related, because she is scared of losing her. They arrive at Rose Bend at Holliday time. The small town is filled with holiday cheer, something Nessa usually actively avoids and will take a lot of time to get used to. They stay at the Inn when she meets the Innkeeper's son Wolfgang. He comes from a picture-perfect family, filled with love, laughter, and holiday spirit.

The longer they stay in town, the more Christmas spirit seeps into her and seeing Ivy find friends, have fun, and smile after long is enough to make her change her mind.

In the town, she doesn't only find the Christmas spirit but answers about her father. And then there is Wolf. Handsome with a troubled past. Their connection is undeniable. :)

It's a beautiful and romantic story, with the happiest ending. :)
