Cole Tanner doesn’t do Christmas.
Abandoned as a child on Christmas Eve, he has no use for the holiday season. When his best friend’s widow arrives in Glacier Creek, Montana, determined to give her small daughter the fairy-tale Christmas she’s dreaming of, Cole is prepared to dislike her. He isn’t prepared for Joy and her daughter to insinuate their way into his life—and his heart. But when tragedy strikes, he needs a Christmas miracle to fulfill the one wish he never knew he wanted.
Joy Holliday believes in miracles.
She sees hummingbirds everywhere, and believes they are tiny messengers from Heaven. Despite losing her husband four years ago, she is determined not to dwell on the past, but to look to the future. Her entire world revolves around taking care of her daughter, Piper, and ensuring she has a magical Christmas. In Glacier Creek she finds Cole, a man still smarting from the wounds of his past, determined to keep happiness at arms’ length. Can she save Christmas and show him the promise of a future with her?
If you love romance and enjoy the Christmas season and still believe in the magic of it, in the miracles, and possibilities of better tomorrows you are going to love A Hummingbird Christmas!
It has all the traditions and family fun that often is associated with the holiday season. It has puppies, adorable kids, generations celebrating together, and a small town filled with intriguing characters that you want to get to know better.
And most of all, it has heartwarming, touching, sizzling hot romance that melted my heart. Joy Holliday and Cole Tanner are so perfect together, they just fit, they get each other. The chemistry between them is spicy and fervent, the connection natural and tangible, the attraction obvious even in the eyes of a child.
Joy has built her life around her daughter after the tragic death of her husband. Her kind heart, considerate and generous mind, and love for her daughter lights her eyes and makes her easy to like and care for.
Cole's life took a turn at a young age when he was abandoned by his single-parent dad. The Holliday family embraced the young man as their own, and he grew up to be a talented, smart and kind man. The wounds from his childhood are still sore, but for the first time, he will consider celebrating Christmas, if it is with the two ladies who have stolen his heart with the first look, Joy and her daughter.
This story made me smile and sigh and swoon and put some holiday cheer into my heart. The story captures the essence of the spirit of Christmas. It gives hope, inspiration, and even has that touch of the magic that comes with childhood belief of all things are possible on Christmas
