Nick Claus has been a widow for five years. His main focus is taking care of his daughter Hope and trying to be everything to her. The day comes when Hope expresses she wants a Mom and she's picked her out, her teacher Linnet. But is Nick ready to open his heart again and believe in the magic of Christmas before his wife died.
Will this be A Christmas of Hope for Linnet, Nick and Hope?
Angela’s Review -
Christmas of Hope is set in the little town of Christmasville. It is also the town where the Claus family resides. Though Nick Claus is not the “big man in red” himself, he and his family have been given the task of sharing the true meaning of Christmas to all of mankind. They are guided by the family oracle in all things.
Though the story is short, Kendall does amazing job at drawing these two wounded souls together quickly, while using a little help from the hero’s adorably sweet five year old daughter, Hope. The enchanting tale starts with only four days until Christmas, as Nick and Linnet are really starting examine their true feels for one another. It’s only when the family oracle confirms that Linnet is Nick’s true soul mate that things really turn interesting, and allows Nick to let down his guard.
In my opinion, there is nothing sexier than a man interacting with a child as it leaves them vulnerable and allows the heroine to see him in a different light. However, Nick proved worthy on my hero meter. When it came to protecting what belonged to him………..he became the fierce protector when having to interact with Linnet’s former boyfriend. However, Linnet certainly did not disappoint as she showed her backbone like a true heroine.
Tambra was able to draw me into the warmth of the season from the very first scene, as Nick and Linnet contemplate their feelings for one another. I could literally envision the Christmas lights and decorations throughout the diner, making one imagine the aromas of cinnamon and evergreen. I could feel the magical spirit of Christmas from the first chapter to the very last word, and kept me turning the pages in anticipation. If you are looking for a enchanting, romantic read for the holidays, grab a steaming cup of cocoa, some cookies, and a copy of Christmas of Hope.
