A Small Town Christmas (Four Irish Brothers Winery #1)
By Nan Reinhardt
Contemporary Romance | Paperback & ebook, 185 Pages
October 29th 2018 by Tule Publishing
Winemaker and single father Conor Flaherty is determined to make this Christmas holiday special for his daughter even though his family’s winery, Four Irish Brothers, is facing some challenges.
High-octane Chicago attorney Samantha Hayes is looking forward to some delicious food, fine wine, small town charm, and a break from her hectic big city life when she agrees to do a favor for her boss and help his younger brother with a lawsuit that’s been slapped on his family’s historic winery in River’s Edge. She’s not expecting that her sexy new client will have a smile that will melt her heart and remind her that there’s more to life than work.
Sam falls hard for Conor, his daughter and the small, friendly town, but can she trust her instincts and risk her heart? Sam hasn’t seen a lot of happy-ever-afters in her life, but Conor and the magic of Christmas make her want to believe.
REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This was a very well-written delightful tale with a Holiday setting.
A very promising Chicago lawyer, Sam Hayes, approached her boss, threatening to quit, but Sean Flaherty, persuaded her to handle a law suit against his family business in a small town four hours away. It would give her a reprieve, plus, allow her to, possibly, "branch out" into other areas of the law.
Other than a frustrating experience with a flat tire on a rainy evening, with no close roadside help, the town's people was like none other she had ever experienced. It was as if it were atown out of the 1950s.
She had a 9:00 A.M. meeting with Sean's brother, Conor, to discuss the case and get some material to support their case. It was the most unexpected and unusual meeting Sam had ever experienced. One that would lead to a whole new outlook on life. It just wasn't what she had planned for her life.
The characters felt so real and the plot scenes were very well-developed, which allowed the reader to feel a part of the story.
It was somewhat predictable, yet had a few twists, to add interest for the reader. It was so well-written, that it easily kept the reader's interest.
The Book Cover and Title were very "fitting".
This was an uplifting read in anticipation of the Holiday Season.
I offer Four and a Half Stars rating
