Review: We Need A Little Christmas by Sierra Donovan

With its festive Snowed Inn and year-round Christmas store, the pretty town of Tall Pine knows how to do the holidays right. But this year, Liv Tomblyn’s homecoming trip may be bittersweet. Liv’s grandmother died soon after Thanksgiving, leaving a lifetime of belongings to sort through. Soon Liv is surrounded by memories, including a retro silver Christmas tree. And there’s Liv’s old friend Scott Leroux—the one-time class clown who’s become the town’s go-to handyman.

Scott enjoyed helping Liv’s Nammy with little fix-it jobs in recent years, but now he’s wondering if the crafty grandma had a much larger project in mind. Everything—from Nammy’s mysteriously malfunctioning heater to that silver tree—seems to be conspiring to throw Liv and Scott together. Not that Scott objects. For though Liv insists she’ll leave Tall Pine when the holidays are over, he’s hoping their holiday kisses might thaw her resolve and make this Christmas truly unforgettable…

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is September 27th, 2016.

I know, I know.  It is only September and why am I reading a Christmas story already?  I will tell you why.  It is never too soon to get your Christmas shopping done and I thought this would get me in to the right spirit.  Also, who doesn't love a Christmas story?

This was a really cute story.  It will appeal to those who like romance but prefer them clean.  Nothing more risqué than kissing to be found in this one.  It was just long enough without being too long.

I absolutely loved the town this story was centered around.  It not only had a Christmas store but it also had a Christmas hotel.  Now that is something I would pay money to stay at.  Everything about the town felt warm and inviting and to be honest was my favorite part of the story.

It was refreshing to see the romance between Liv and Scotty blossom slowly without the between the sheet action.  Many times that is just fill in a story and lacks substance.  the absence of that actually had you feel the emotion a little more.  Now, with that in mind, this relationship did seem to develop out of thin air if I had to be a little critical.  I didn't mind though, it still entertained me.

This is my first Christmas read this year, and my first story by Donovan.  I believe there may be more stories that center around this town so I am going to have to check them out.  Overall I was pleased with this book.
