I love the happily ever after stories, but I also love those that have some type reality attached to them. This author never fails to ensure that the stories have some type of realistic feel with them, even down to the descriptions of the cities where the stories are based. In this story, the heroine, Casey, is a product of foster care and the story dealt with her background in a fair and honest manner. I like that she was not the cookie cutter heroine with the typical career (a cabinet maker, no less) and usual baggage. There were subtle differences with her that made it fun to read about her and engage you in her story. Her foster family is unique and diverse, but their differences make them interesting and really has me wondering about the others that grew up together. I love that for this story family is based on love and relationship, along with some DNA.
The hero, Carter, is unique as well. He has history with the heroine and all her siblings. In fact, he gives one of my favorite lines describing Casey's brothers. Again, the story is told with a steady pace, that unfolds the characters in a way that kept me engaged. I love that he knew what he wanted and kept moving forward so he could get his prize. His description was that of an "in-charge" male, but he also had the sensitivity built into his character that allowed him to be supportive also.
I cannot wait to read more of this series. Great job to both the authors!
I liked having a glimpse into their childhood memories through flashbacks that Casey and Carter each had. Lisa and Roslyn capture both the awkwardness and the specialness that is first love. When friendship blossoms into something more. The authors do a wonderful job of establishing family dynamics between the different siblings in the foster family as well as the relationship between Casey and her biological sister Leonie. I really liked learning about the different occupations that each of the siblings had as adults. They all seem to be doing something that they're not only very talented at that they truly love and have a passion for.
This story reminds you that Christmas and New Year are time of joy and forgiveness and renewal and the special wishes coming true. Roslyn Hardy Holcomb and Lisa G. Riley create a wonderful atmosphere of family, food, and home. I look forward to the other Christmas love stories from these special sisters.
Roslyn Holcomb and Lisa Riley really take you on a ride with their vivid account of the drama that sometimes occurs in our families, including the shenanigans that take place at family gatherings during the holidays. Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas unfolds the enticing love affair of Casey and Carter that will keep you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know what happens next.
Having not read fiction for many years, I was amazed by the authors’ talent to rope me in from the start, with the eloquent description of Lady G and Uncle Popsicle’s restaurant, to the provocative detail of Casey and Carter’s encounters. Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas is a quick, sexy and fun read, as Holcomb and Riley plant readers right into this family’s lives, and make you feel as if you really know them.
This was the first book I’ve read by Holcomb and Riley and it restored my interest for reading fiction. Looking forward to reading more in this series!
This was a sweet romance which I really enjoyed. Even though this was mainly about Carter and Casey, the family members and friends interactions with the couple made the story that much more enjoyable. I look forward to more stories in the series. I give Casey and Carter's story 4 stars!
