The Heart of Christmas
(Whiskey Creek #7)
by Brenda Novak
New Release and Review
Just call her Christmas Eve…
Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages, and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.
Eve's worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband�until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve's definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after�just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life!
From the moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to enjoy it. As Eve wakes up hungover, she realizes there is a man in her bed and she has no immediate recollection of who he is and what transpired to bring this man into her bed. What is in a name after all? Before the week is out, her male companion will go from Jared to Brent to... I won't give it away!
Mystery and suspense are mixed in this cocktail of a romantic thriller. Lives hang on the line and the threat is very real. These two characters are drawn to each other by an unknown force and emotions neither has ever felt before.
In true Brenda Novak fashion, this Whiskey Creek romance is enticing and full of the characters we love. Once again, friends band together to protect each other and insure the strength of their bond remains true.
