ARC Review: The Holiday Gift (RaeAnne Thayne)

The Holiday Gift is the last story of the Nichols sister, which started Hope in The Christmas Ranch and later Celeste in A Cold Creek Christmas Story. This time, it’s the oldest sister, Faith, who finally gets her love story with her best friend, Chase Brannon.

When we are first introduced to Faith back in Hope’s book, she recently lost her husband, being a young widow with two children at the age of 32-years-old. Now, it’s two years later, and Chase who has been in love with Faith since forever, determines to finally make her see how he feels about her.

I liked Chase — I liked that Chase knows what he wants, and well, he is a fine, FINE man. He’s kind and loyal, and I totally love his devotion to his only daughter. It was Faith that frustrated the hell out of me. I seriously wanted to knock some sense into this woman, frequently groaning over her coward way of retreating from Chase, to the point that she was making that idiotic move by trying to set up Chase with another woman. Seriously, woman!!! Even your sister and aunt know how that man feels about you!!

My frustration over Faith made me enjoy her story less than her two sisters. Although all in all, it was a good holiday romance story, with low level of steam … which is just my cup of tea 🙂
