5.0 out of 5 stars Anything can happen at Christmas September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What if you had everything you wanted career-wise, and absolutely nothing was right in your personal life? That is the heroine's dilemma in this charming Christmas novella. A Family For Christmas is a top-notch holiday read. There were several unexpected moments and the characters felt very real. Though the story is short, the author let time lapse before the epilogue, so that the ultimate happy ending felt appropriate and well deserved. Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A Family for Christmas is a short read, but within its pages Helen Scott Taylor has crammed many poignant truths. Trust your instincts when you meet someone who feels "just right". Grief can bog you down and destroy relationships. Finding the perfect person is often dependent on an unlikely chance encounter. Children are sometimes more perceptive than adults. Christmas memories can be a source of comfort and joy. If you want to enjoy a heart warming Christmas story, you'll love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful Christmas September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a delightful novella with appealing characters, lovely descriptions, and a sprinkle of suspense. Little Polly, Pickle the lamb, Noodles the Collie, and Polly's inseparable Barbie add their touch to a story oozing with emotion by messing up Eve's and Tom's lives with their antics and demands. The tough career woman and the disabused ex-husband learn to reassess their values and discover love in the spirit of Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Christmas Read October 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a heartwarming novella with a cozy atmosphere just right for a winter read. When Eve's car gets stranded in the snow out in the English countryside, little does she know the handsome and kind man who rescues her will change her life. After the death of her parents, Eve lost her sense of belonging anywhere and has been focusing on her career. Tom, a former banker, has his own pain in a failed marriage that left his daughter Polly motherless. He has relocated to a farm that is beautifully depicted by the author. Polly is adorable and immediately wins both Eve's and the reader's heart. It is through her that Tom and Eve recognize their attraction. I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful and satisfying Christmas story and recommend it highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story of what's important in life. November 20, 2012
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I would have realized this was a romance I would never have bought this book. I was looking for something to get the Christmas season started, it had good reviews so I purchased it. What a great story. It quickly reminded me how easy it is to get caught up in the world and missing life.

I am a guy that has never read a romance in my life. This was much more than what I would expect a romance Novell to be. My oldest grand child is about Polly's age. It really helped me to realize what a blessing family is in this busy world we get caught in.

Besides that I was just on vacation in the countryside of England not far from where this took place. It was a story book in its self. I think I will read this to my 7 year old grand daughter. It will make a great bonding moment.

Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Cozy Christmas Read December 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sitting by the fireplace several weeks before Christmas I've just finished reading this delightful book on my Kindle. It's everything a reader could ask for in a nice cozy, Christmas love story. A Family For Christmas both satisfies and delights. Set in an idyllic small English country town with a modern-day plot, this story develops quickly and moves along at a brisk pace but not too fast for the reader to find her (him) self right there with the well-developed characters and in the nicely described scenes of home, city and church.
What I look for in Christmas romances is a quick and satisfying read but mostly a complete setting, one that satisfies the yearning for tradition, family and feelings that the holiday generates. For me, this story has satisfied all three. In particular, I found the growing relationships between Eve and Polly, Eve and her distant sister-in-law and brother, and Eve with her "lost" self, very appealing. All the characters grow and develop well and by the end of the story, we have our happy ending. Good job!
