Magic, love, and Christmas = 5 star read
Holiday Gifts is another great read from Elena Aitken.
Ryan is wrapped up in his work at the lodge. Julie is the fresh face he needs to see & Ryan is just the man to heal years of loneliness for Julie. Julie's daughter, Shay, is quiet the match maker. She has a plan to get her mom a man & make her happy by Christmas. Ryan is not searching for love until he happens upon Julie & is smitten from the get go.
When miscommunication occurs it almost ends the chance Julie & Ryan have. Julie is a very headstrong woman who doesn't want to get hurt again, but at the same time wants to feel true love. She truly believes she can have that with Ryan, it's just making herself see that is the problem. Ryan is completely head over heals for Julie and is determined to make her his.
Magical spirit, love, and Christmas make this story a five star read and will make you fall in love at the lodge.
Sweet Christmas Romance
I truly loved Julie and Ryan's love story!! Love this series and love how Elena pulls you in and contects you with the characters and makes them feel real and normal!!! Perfect sweet Christmas story about a single mom finding her true love and a bachelor who is finally ready to settle down!
I received my ARC copy of Holiday Gifts and couldn't put it down. I love the Castle Mountain Series and how all the books refer to others we have loved reading. Ryan & Julie's love story was beautiful and mixing in a teenager, made it so much fun for both Ryan & Julie. Wish there was a real Castle Mountain Resort that could give us the same magic! Intriguing writing, Elena! Definitely, 5 Stars!
