5 Stars:  5/5 star rating
What a surprising Christmas novella!   Vika and Chad both have different expectations for their marriage but they must come to some sort of agreement or else their marriage will be doomed from the start. Will they be able to come together and work things out? Will they connect in more ways than just the precious children he has from his previous widow?  
I loved reading this novella.  I personally enjoy the ease and speed of reading novellas.  I was able to finish this one in one afternoon while sitting by the twinkling lights of my own Christmas tree.  Perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!   
I received a digital ARC of this novella from netgalley and Inked Figments in exchange for my honest review.  I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.

About the Author:
Linda Carroll-Bradd

As a child, Linda was often found lying on her bed reading about characters having exciting adventures in places far away. Upon reaching a landmark birthday, she decided to write one of those romances she loved so much. Easier said than done. Perseverance paid out and twelve years later, she received her first call from a publisher and a confession story was published. Now Linda writes heartwarming contemporary and historical stories with a touch of humor, and many have a tie to her previous home of Texas.
Linda enjoys writing from her cabin in the mountains among the cedar and pines with her husband of 34 years and their two much-loved dogs.
