[Kame's Review]: "Kentucky Christmas"

Kentucky Christmas by Sarah Title
Publisher: eKensington (December 5, 2013) 
Genre: Contemporary Romance (holiday)

Welcome back to Hollow Bend, Kentucky, where love (and laughter) are just around the corner.
When Andrew Bateman rolls into town in the midst of a snow storm, his first thought is that the place is hardly big enough for a dog crate, let alone the vet practice he’s looking for. Next thing he knows, his life is flashing in front of him—a depressingly short flash—as he skids right into the side of the local bar.

Things start looking up when the vision he wakes to is not the Angel of Death, but a doctor. Well, actually a vet. Make that a vet tech, wearing red mittens. Who invites him home, where every inch is covered in holiday sparkles, cookies to be decorated, and an odd assortment of stray dogs, cats and puppies…

There’s nothing merrier than a white Christmas in Kentucky!

Kame's Review:

There are three thing Billie loves animals, her father and Christmas. Andrew is a guy who likes computers and has a knack for all things with a plug who is stuck in a sales job his cousin gave him after Andrew was laid off. Somehow this lover of all things Christmas and the guy who could give the Grinch a run for the title find each other a few days before Christmas.

This is a very quick read novella but you got a real sense of this small Kentucky town.  I love Billie enthusiasm for Christmas as it is my favorite holiday too. Andrew had great internal dialog that made me chuckle at times. Immediate attraction can be amusing in books and it was fun that this one was laced with a bit of humor.

I did a check and this novella is a follow up to a full length book. It seems to be the start of a series; I can only hope to see a glimpse of Billie and Andrew in other Kentucky books by Sarah Title. If you want a nice easy read by your Christmas tree one night when you can’t think of addressing another Christmas card – this is the novella for you!

     4 STARS!

Kame is part of a family of readers; one day she picked up the Nook she purchased for her husband and discovered her love of e-books. A few months later he purchased one for her so he could have his back! Kame’s Nook is never far, and she is hard pressed to pick a favorite book, genre or author. As long as there are characters that make her want to sit down and have a chat and a plot keeps the pages turning, she’ll read it.
