Welcome to Christmas Grove, where holiday magic and matchmaking is in the air.
When Rex Holiday walks into the charming town of Christmas Grove, all he plans to do is to spend the season helping out at his buddy’s Christmas tree farm. What he doesn’t expect is for an overzealous matchmaker to slip a love potion into his cider. But the joke’s on the resident matchmaker, because not even a potent love spell can break through the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the girl next door catches his eye, some of his barriers start to crumble. Still, Rex Holiday’s time in Christmas Grove is only temporary. He can’t afford to fall in love. Or can he?
Holly Reineer is a powerful spirit witch who can see the future for everyone. Everyone but herself that is. And when Rex Holiday walks into her life, she sees his, too. He’s destined for a big corporate job all the way across the country. So when he starts to show interest in her, she knows it’s only temporary, and Holly’s not interested in a fling. She wants her happily-ever-after. But he’s very hard to resist… Can a love spell rewrite the future? If so, Holly will need to learn to follow her heart and, for once, trust what she can’t see.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I have read a lot of books by Deanna Chase but the romance ones hit the heart. There is romance and mystery in many of her books. This is an excellent love story with a few twists thrown in but the part where Rex comes back to Holly brought tears to my eyes!
No love potion was needed for this romance but 100% pure love! Five stars nah but at least ten stars! Have your Kleenex ready because I highly recommend this book!
Debut of Witches of Christmas Grove series
A Witch for Mr. Holiday by Deanna Chase takes us to Christmas Grove, California. Rex Holiday had a love potion slipped into his cider and the first lady he came across was Holly Reineer. Rex has no intention of letting the barriers surrounding his heart come down for the lovely red haired witch—even if she does make his heart zing. Rex is in the area to help Zach Frost with his Christmas tree farm and then he will be on to his next assignment. When Holly’s ankle gets injured courtesy of Zach’s overzealous pup, Rex steps in to help. Holly does not wish to get her heart broken again, but she cannot resist spending time with Rex especially when he offers to help with the town toy drive. What does the future hold for the spirit witch and Mr. Holiday? A Witch for Mr. Holiday is the first novel in Witches of Christmas Grove series. I enjoyed the descriptions of this magical village with its unique residents. Deanna Chase’s writing drew me right into this enchanting tale featuring Holly and Rex. They each have issues that must be worked through. There is also a sweet little boy who could use a special Christmas gift. Harry Potter fans will just love the detailed descriptions of Holly’s special Christmas decorations. There is a fair amount of foul language (unfortunately) and there are some steamy scenes. There is delightful humor sprinkled throughout and a character or two from Keating Hollow makes an appearance. We get a sneak peek at the couple featured in A Witch for Mr. Christmas. A Witch for Mr. Holiday is a spellbinding tale that will keep you riveted on a cold winter night.
