I have no idea how she manages to sound so romantic while keeping to a sweet romance story. At first I wasn't sure of Terence, since he and Savanna had never met in person, but his awesomeness slowly emerged and I rooted for this couple all the way to the satisfying ending.
Wheeler not only makes her characters come alive, but she makes the world around them vital with picturesque description. And the cats add just the right amount of down-home charm and touches of humor.
This book was a perfect read for Christmas Eve; I read it in one setting; not too long, not too short.
I have read and enjoyed all of Loretta Wheeler's literary works and recommend them highly. Thanks for introducing me to Galveston Island and to Savanna and Terence.

That’s how I picked up Christmas on the Strand by Loretta Wheeler. Being a native Texan myself, the appeal, of course, was that the setting was on Galveston Island.
This is a novella, so it is not lengthy. I am not particularly a fan of novellas, but Wheeler has a smooth southern drawl to her writing that sucks the reader in. The setting is well done and captures the Galveston flavor. (Made me want to go back for a visit!)
The characters of Savanna Burke and Terence Whittaker are nicely drawn, and their goals, while not particularly earth shattering or dramatic, are keen nonetheless. Even the animals have personalities in this book. The plot moves along at a steady pace. Usually novellas tend to lag because they are so thinly written. Not the case with this book. Wheeler has written a book with enough goal and conflict within the characters themselves to drive the plot forward to its end.
I also appreciated the fact that the hero and heroine did not jump into bed the first chance they got. Savanna had some morals, and that appealed to me. I liked both of the main characters so much more for that.
Now, this is a bit of a paranormal flick, so for those readers not wishing to dabble in that genre, you might wish to pass this by. There was not much of that going on here, but I cannot vouch for Wheeler’s other work as I have not read it. Typically, that is not my cup of tea, so if I do not read her other works it will be because of the genre and not her as a writer. (Although . . . I would really like to know what happens with these two next . . .)
I understand Wheeler will be writing other books that will be companions to this one. No doubt, readers will be enthralled with Savanna and Terrence and will be coming back for more.
It was a delight to read and I’ve already started reading another in the series by this author.
I hope Savannah and Terrence make an appearance in the next story in the series.
