When even the wishes you're afraid to make can come true…
Ben Blackwell enjoys a simple life. He lives on pristine land that has been in his family for generations, grows the finest Christmas trees this side of the Rockies, and is a master craftsman by trade. He wants what every bear shifter wants - to pad along peacefully in the forested mountains he calls home and, fate willing, have a mate to share it with.
But life is rarely simple. His rival is trying to get his hands on Ben's family land to develop it for his resort, and the right woman is proving elusive - until she crashes into his backyard. Literally.
Allison Timms doesn't have a place to call home, not really. Since running away from foster care at a young age, she's moved from place to place, job to job, atoning for the misdeeds of her youth. Her hope is that one day, she'll land her dream job and finally be able to stop running.
This Christmas, she's determined to make her wish come true - if she can make it up to the swanky lodge and convince the wealthy resort owner that he needs her mad skills. Unfortunately, she failed to factor in the Christmas Eve snowstorm making the mountainous route so treacherous - or the stranger who saves her from a crash and makes her want things she didn't think were hers to want.
Is she the one Ben's been waiting for? Or is Allie working with his rival to destroy everything?
The Simple and the Complicated
I have been following Abbie Zanders and own several of her series (many actually). I love her Beary Christmas series. Playful, romantic (yep, sexy). Two different people, each with their secrets. A shadow threatening. Add a snow storm. Possibilities and dreams. Bravo!!
I received a free copy of this book via BookFunnel and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Loved Bearly Festive!!
First I have to say I adore Abbie Zanders!! Now, onto the review, Bearly Festive is a fabulous entry into the Beary Christmas Series… Allison Timms was a foster child that ran from the foster system and moved around working and trying to find her dream job. Ben Blackwell is a master craftsman living on his family’s land also growing beautiful Christmas trees. His dream is to find a mate and have a family.
On her way to a resort to meet to meet with the owner about a job, she gets into an accident in a snowstorm and is rescued by a stranger - Ben.
Is she on her way to her dream job or is she destined to be Ben’s mate?????
In true Abbie Zanders’ style, Bearly Festive is a wonderful book that I couldn’t put down until I had all the answers at the end. I loved it and wholeheartedly recommend it to all!!!
