Holiday in Stone is actually two books. A Stone Creek Christmas which deals with Olivia who is a vet and can also talk to animals and Tanner who is building a new vet hospital in Stone Creek. The story deals with Olivia and Tanner and their families. Olivia is too busy to get romantically involved and Tanner, a widower with a daughter, is too busy to commit to a relationship. It seems that sparks fly when they are together. The next story At Home in Stone Creek is about Olivia's sister Ashley and her former love Jack. Jack has a mysterious past and someone is trying to kill him. He hides in Ahsley's Bed and Breakfast and they renew their love affair. When Jack suddenly leaves, Ahsley is once again alone and angry. Sounds like a Christmas story to me and it is. I really did like both.

This is a reprint from 2 previous Christmas stories. Nothing new here. If you've already read them both, don't bother wasting your $ on this one.
If you haven't read either story, this is a good buy since it's 2 stories included in one book.

Holiday in Stone Creek is just a way to make money by selling two old books in the guise of a new one. While the stories are good ones, be certain you haven't read them before you buy this book. I really resent this tactic whether it is by the publisher or the author. I shall be more careful in the future.

A Stone Creek Christmas
My Rating for this book: B

Story Overview:
Stone Creek veterinarian Olivia O'Ballivan communicates easily with animals, but men are another story. Especially rugged architect-turned-rancher Tanner Quinn. Olivia's uncanny bond with his daughter Sophie's pony has him questioning her sanity, while she wonders if he's not just a drugstore cowboy. Then twelve-year-old Sophie conspires with Olivia to get Tanner into the spirit of Christmas. But will a holiday miracle transform the globe-trotting Tanner into a rancher--and family man--for all seasons?

My Review:
This was simply a sweet old-fashioned Christmas love story, featuring a broken-hearted widower (Tanner,) his 12 yo daughter (Sophie,) and the town veterinarian (Olivia.) There was a special sense of holiday magic in this book because Olivia can talk to animals which leads her to a lost reindeer at the start of the story. As a result, a character named Kris Kringle appears periodically and mysteriously throughout the novel. It adds a touch of whimsy to the novel, that at times, went a bit too far for me, but it was all for Christmas fun, I know.

I really liked what Sophie added to the story, but there were times that Tanner's overprotectiveness just didn't seem to make sense. Tanner's over-the-top reaction to her supposed danger, just didn't ring true to the actual circumstances. I don't think that it would have been that hard to fix the issues within that story and made this a really superb book, but as it stands, it just seemed a little off to me.

I did enjoy this book. There were little things that niggled at me, but overall it was a fun holiday read.

A two-story collection, the first deals with Olivia O'Ballivan, a vet who can talk to animals and has a very smart Golden Retriever, who tangles with Tanner Quinn, her next-door rancher and his 12-yr old daughter. This is a Christmas story and it wouldn't be complete with a tree-seller who is Santa in hiding (sort of).

The second story follows Olivia's sister, one of the twins, Ashley and explores whether Jack McCall, who stole her heart years earlier, is going to have it stolen again. OR will she so capture his that he can't leave Stone Creek again? This story takes place about two years after the first one, thus enabling us to follow what happened to Olivia and Tanner after they decided to make a life together.

Both stories are heart-warming, even as they toss the reader in exciting events that keep the pulse pumping at times other than the sex scenes.

These two stories are two of my favorites in the series. I like Olivia very much and her relationship with animals is fun. I'm glad she is getting a chance to have a family in this story. Ashley's story has lots of exciting parts in it. I also like the fact that Ashley runs a bed and breakfast which makes for some interesting situations in several of the books in the series. Well she be bold enough to reach out and hold onto the man in her life?

I started checking Linda's books out of the library this summer when I needed some new books to read. I am not really a fan of historical westerns but her contemporary western stories intrigued me and I ended up checking out the Creed series. I was instantly a fan and I have been reading her books as often as I can now! After reading (and loving) Melissa's story in the Creed series, I was interested in reading about her sister's. I was tickled to see their stories came together in this holiday treat. I instantly fell in love with Olivia, Tanner, Sophie, Ginger, Rodney, and the entire cast of people and animals in A Stone Creek Christmas. I thought the "animal whisperer" thing was going to annoy me, but I actually found it to be a charming part of the larger story. It was insta-attratction between Olivia and Tanner but I think the love story moved along at a nice pace for the length of the book. I also liked how Jack and Ashley's story was set up so perfectly and you could go into At Home in Stone Creek. I was a fan of Ashley's from Olivia's story and she didn't disappoint as the heroine of her own story. Now I have to go back and read Brad and Meg's story to complete the family saga (even though I already know how it all turns out!)
