REVIEW: Charming and Comforting! That is how I felt while reading Krista Jensen’s Miracle Creek Christmas. The story is charming and it was comforting for me to read because it took place in a small town. I’m from a small town so, I felt right at home! Feeling like you’ve visited home with the holidays coming up was simply enchanting.
Riley Madigan and Mark Rivers make a perfect couple. I loved them! The characters in this book were probably in your home town too. I’m sure you could give me a name of someone you know if I described every character in this book. They were such authentic people but, yet very typical. Cream of the crop and people you would like being around.
If you are like me and love a good Christmas story with morals and a lesson or two to be learned, you will absolutely fall in love with this book like I did. I always love to read something like this during the holidays!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for a fair and honest review.
SYNOPSIS: Broken hearts and lives are mended as the town of Miracle Creek comes together to celebrate a Christmas to remember.
When Riley Madigan moves to the sleepy mountain town of Miracle Creek, she hopes her new job as a high school art teacher will help her mend her recently broken heart. A little peace and quiet would be a gift this Christmas season. The last thing on her mind is love.
Former firefighter Mark Rivers has spent the last year recovering from burns sustained during a rescue operation. He’s been trying to piece his life back together but still struggles both emotionally and psychologically. When he meets Riley, he finally sees something that might bring some light back into his life.
When Mark asks Riley to work on a special nativity project, he finds himself falling for her quirky, unaffected ways. Riley doesn’t seem bothered by his scars, but is her affection for him real, or is this just another act of charity? One thing s for certain, in a small town that views Mark as a fragile hero, it’s hard to pursue a relationship without everyone in his business. And although Riley has sincere feelings for Mark, is she ready to risk her heart?
