ARC REVIEW — Candy Cane Christmas by Laura Trentham



What a sweet little Holiday story this was.

Jeremy Whitehurst has left his troubled past and bad boy ways behind him in Alabama. Now working as a mechanic in Cottonbloom, Louisiana he lives a quiet and low key lifestyle that suits him just fine.

Kayla Redmond has made more than her fair share of bad decisions. Getting involved with an abusive man left her hurting and guarding her heart. Now all she is focused on his her future as a bookkeeper. Fate has other plans for Kayla when her new job at Fournette Brothers Designs places her right in the path of the man who saved her from her abusive ex.

With Christmas fast approaching can these two damaged and weary souls find the strength to take a chance on love again??

I adored this novella. It’s SUPER short, but packed with sweet moments and tons of feel good moments. Both characters were likable. The writing was fantastic and flowed nicely. It had a nice cast of side characters (this was my first Cottonbloom book, but won’t be my last.) I wasn’t lost reading this one, but I assume you get more background on these two characters in the full length novels about the other characters. In fact (IMO) this one would have made a great full length novel.

My only small complaint is that I wish it would have had a better epilogue. Perhaps we will hear more about this couple in future books? Overall though, a fantastic Holiday novella to add to your “TO READ” list.
