Review: Wanted: Mom For Christmas (Cates Brothers #5.5) by Lee Kilraine

Christmas is coming to Climax, North Carolina—and it’s delivering an unexpected second chance right to Hawk Savage’s door…

For small-town cop and single dad Hawk Savage, Christmas tends to be more hassle and worry than mistletoe and magic. His daughter, Heather, is ten going on teenager, while his son, Henry Lee, has decided he needs a mommy, ASAP. HL’s constant matchmaking is enough to break a father’s heart, but Hawk has a more immediate problem. His high-school girlfriend, Nora Joy, just arrived on his doorstep, claiming to be his family’s new Rent-A-Mom. He sure didn’t hire her, but he can’t turn Nora’s admittedly shapely tush out on the street.

Sidelined by injury, Olympic medal-winning volleyball player Nora receives a mysterious Rent-A-Mom job offer just when her finances, and her spirits, are at an all-time low. True, she’s not much for cooking. Or housekeeping. Still, it’s hard to resist Hawk’s children…and Hawk himself has changed from the lanky teenager she once knew to a strong, steady, very tempting man.

Christmas in Climax is shaping up to be full of surprises. But the biggest one of all might be the happy-ever-after that a little boy’s Christmas wish can bring…

Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Kensington's Lyrical Shine

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you**

This review is going to be short as I am going to try to sum my thoughts up as briefly and concisely as possible.

This book was written for those, like myself, who are Christmas fanatics and love everything about the holiday season (well I may have a slight issue with Christmas music but that aside, love everything else).  If you, like myself, find yourself binge watching the W network and its made for TV Christmas movies, this is the book for you. In fact, Lilraine, if your people have not already pitched this, have them do it, it would be perfect!

This story has all the ingredients that make a perfect Christmas story.  Children in need of a mother, a man in need of a love and companion, a Christmas miracle and some hijinks in between.  I have been following this series but it is not required if you are simply looking for a nice Christmas read.  You can read this on its own.

Just grab a cup of hot chocolate, turn the fireplace on and grab this story!
