I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
There’s nowhere better to spend the holidays than with New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery in the town of Fool’s Gold, where love is always waiting to be unwrapped… Noelle Perkins just got a second chance at life, and she intends to make the most of every minute. That’s why she ditched a frustrating legal career to open her own store in Fool’s Gold, California. The Christmas Attic celebrates everything that’s magical about her favorite season. Business is booming, and as a bonus, gorgeous army doctor Gabriel Boylan has offered to help out during the holiday rush.
Gabriel’s memories of Christmas past contain more sour grapes than sugar plums, thanks to a drill sergeant father who ran his home like a boot camp. Spending the holidays with his family while he recuperates from injury sounds as appetizing as last year’s eggnog. Still, there are some enjoyable distractions in town, including sunny, sexy Noelle…and the red-hot mistletoe kisses they can’t stop sharing.
Gabriel didn’t think he was made for happily-ever-afters. But when fate hands you a love as sweet and surprising as this, only a fool could refuse….
This novella was actually really long and I liked the fact we got to understand more of Boylan family. This is the closing link in this trilogy and we got to see Gabriel falling in love and rediscovering his family.
Noelle we had met previously in this trilogy and she was hiding something, but never got to actually say anything about it with the other girls, but this time she met an infuriating man and he got to know her secrets. She didn’t do anything wrong, but life wasn’t easy either and now she’s starting new with her Christmas store.
This book is set during Christmas and I love the setting, the places and of course there’s always snow so everything is better. But this year Christmas was a little hard and Noelle needed help, so Gabriel was the perfect match because he was running from his family and trying to discover what to do with his future.
I loved this couple and of course meeting those other couples again. But the best part was Christmas and getting the family together again.
