This book was cute and entertaining but it was the deeper message of the true meaning of Christmas interwoven into this book that made me write a review. A Christmas bargain focused on the true meaning of Christmas, unselfish love, sacrifice, and helping others who are not able to help themselves. I find that this in missing is a lot of Christmas novels but this book had all of these elements and for that I have given this book a five star review.

This story is a perfect pick for a Christmas Romance that should be read every holiday season. The characters are so full of life that the reader feels part of the story. You will smile, laugh and cry. This is a book difficult to put down! I will patiently await another historical by this talented author.

The Christmas Bargain I loved this book. It's a feel good story with a happy ending while still having a little twist. It has some drama and good old fashioned romance. I won't bore you with the story details because other reviews have covered that very well. I just wanted to tell readers that I liked it so much I immediately bought and read her single titled Learnin' The Ropes. That books was so enjoyable I bought her Grass Valley Cowboy Series and The Women of Tenacity Series. Shanna Hatfield is now one of my favorite authors.

The first attempt at historical romance for Ms. Hatfield does not feel like it is her first at all. The reader is carried to a place of more simple, gentile times and Shanna makes us feel very comfortable indeed. There are no clunky,awkward moments only the upbeat positive atmosphere whereby the cocoa is a must and the fireplace is a plus in order to settle in to enjoy this well-written, sweet story. I won't give away spoilers but the story itself is a moral sampling of doing the right thing! Happy winter reading! This one is a true stress reliever from all of the hustle and bustle so many of us tend to be sucked into.

Simple and sweet romance with no real conflict to overcome. Just a note to those who want clean romance...there is a little more detail (ie he grabs her bottom, has trouble undoing her clothes) than most "clean" romances so some might feel it is too much. It was fine for me since the couple was married but I thought others might want to know. So far, I have enjoyed all of the Shanna Hatfield books I have read!

Clean but not without heat, this book is heavy on romance and daily life. If you like the swoon without the smut this book delivers. Although there is a lot of daily life, it is done in a way that does not drag the story. It flows naturally and is necessary to the building of the character. There are mistakes that could have been avoided with careful proof reading but the story itself is worth pushing past those. Well done. I recommend this book.

I have to deduct stars from a probable 4 for "interesting story line, likable (and unlikable other) characters, not raunchy or crude, and interesting time, setting and historical information" because of the following:

Side character (Melanie) is presented as a seriously threatening shrew, but then just utterly disappears from the story halfway through. She still lives right in the same tiny town, but poof! Just like that, she's never heard of again, without the issues involving her resolved in any way.
The mother-in-law morphs astonishingly from vicious shrew to cuddly old lady in "zero-to-sixty"...one minute she abhors her new daughter-in-law; the next moment, she adores her.
The dastardly father, criminally abusive and nearly a murderer, suddenly dissolves in tears and is so sorry. Zero-to-sixty again!
There was the sad and glaring lack of commas or other necessary punctuation. These days commas, are used, almost every, other, word. (ARRGH). In this book, though, they were nearly absent totally. Ex:" He walked into the kitchen put his coat on the table it was really warm from the stove." (I made the sentence up but it's a perfect example.) "She grabbed hold of her horse's reins ran fast she jumped up into the saddle." (again, made up but clear example). This happens constantly throughout the book.
But perhaps most glaring of all was the author's apparent lack of knowledge of more than two verb tenses. It's either present or simple past for her. I couldn't find one example of "She HAD put it in the closet". Instead, it would be "She looked for the hat she put in the closet last fall it wasn't there." or "I'll make this pie now, but I wish I made it yesterday." or "When he got there that night he found she made him a cake." GRINDING MY TEETH!
