Christmas At The Graff was a sweet holiday romance. I enjoyed it very much. I especially loved how the author describes the holidays in Marietta. If you know me, then you know I am a huge fan of all things Marietta, Montana that Tule publishing releases. The only thing I love more than romance in Marietta is Christmas in Marietta.
EJ and Jemma.......
EJ is a physical therapist in Marietta. One of his patients, Joe, has fallen and once he is released from the hospital will need home care. Joe's daughter Jemma will be coming to stay with him for several weeks. While Jemma is less than thrilled and not a little anxious at being around her father, Joe is thrilled beyond measure. Joe has been estranged from his daughters for more than a decade and they want nothing to do with him. Because of Jemma losing her father, her life was shaped into something that made her guarded and cautious of trusting. But Joe is praying he can break through her walls and earn her forgiveness.
EJ is worried that his patient, and very good friend Joe, is setting himself up for more heartbreak. EJ himself knows what abandonment is like and he too keeps his heart guarded. But when Jemma comes to town, EJ's own walls start to crumble, as well as her own. But will Jemma let her guard down enough to accept love and forgiveness? Maybe the magic of Christmas will be the catalyst for a new view on life and love for them all.
I loved watching the interaction between Jemma and EJ as well as Jemma and Joe. I won't give too many details because this is a heartwarming story that you will love more if it isn't spoiled for you.
I enjoyed this sweet book very much however I was disappointed with the conclusion. For me, there were many questions in my mind that didn't get answered. I like to see my HEAs on the pages and not have to infer that things worked out. That said, in my opinion, this book would have been better for me with an epilogue.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
Now Joe needs help. After a broken pelvis, their father has asked for help which Jemma is grudgingly providing. Justine will have nothing to do with the situation, but Jemma made the trip to Marietta, she’ll do her daughterly duty but she’s determined to not budge on forgiving her father. His handsome physical therapist can sing Joe’s praises, but Jemma’s not buying it. She knows what her father is like, EJ has no clue.
Jemma and EJ are both wounded souls for slightly different reasons. Neither trusts in lasting love or happy ever afters. But what they both will learn over the days leading up to Christmas is that truth is often two sided, depending on who is telling their version of the truth. Jemma will slowly discover that she’s not been given the entire story behind the dissolving of a family, and while her father was to blame… so was her mother and the version of truth she made the choice to tell her daughters. A near tragedy will change everything, and maybe forgiveness isn’t as difficult as she once thought.
The historic hotel The Graff is all decked out for Christmas, and this building is as much a characters as everyone else. I can remember reading the story surrounding the Graff being remodeled, brought back to life once again – and it’s fun for me to see just how well this particular character of a building has grown over time.
I enjoyed this touching romance. I hurt for both Jemma and EJ – their lives have not been easy, and both have created walls that it will take some life changing events to tear down. But watching them discover that love is a possibility for them, that the past can be left behind and a new future forged was a delightful experience. I would recommend Christmas At The Graff for any Romance reader who enjoys digging deep into emotions, finding answers that aren’t easy and finding a love worth fighting for.
