Home For The Holidays by Rochelle Alers is a novella in the Cavanaugh Island series. This novella takes place during the holidays and is a great quick read to help get you in the holiday spirit.
Iris Nelson has returned to Cavanaugh Island after an abusive marriage. She works in a bakery, her speciality being baking cakes. She dreams of opening her own cake shop and hopes to someday make this dream a reality. She has plans with her friend, Tracy, to go out for drinks and let off some steam. When Tracy has to back out of the plans, Iris decides to go to Ladies Night by herself. She’s hoping to find Mr. Tonight because she is getting lonely being single. She has not fully recovered from her abusive marriage but she realizes she needs to try and meet new people and move on with her life.
Collier Ward is back in Cavanaugh Island on a holiday leave from the military. He is there to surprise his sister and niece and spend some much needed family time with them. He is suffering from PTSD and he is hoping that being with family will help relieve some of the stress he is experiencing. When he accidently runs into Iris at the club, he thinks that the holiday break will be much more interesting and fun.
Iris and Collier feel an instant attraction to each other but are reluctant to pursue a relationship. Collier knows that he will be leaving after the holidays to return to the military for two more years and Iris is afraid of trusting another man after the abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband. The more time they spend together, the harder it is for them to deny their feelings. Will a little holiday magic happen and things work out for them, or will they each go their separate ways after the holidays?Read more ›
Iris also is fighting her demons. She has been in a marriage where she suffered Domestic violence. A strong memory is of a broken nose and dislocated jaw. When Collier jumps her one night like he might kill her, she draws away from him quickly. Although fighting in his sleep is not his fault, it's awfully frightening to the woman who is about to become his wife. Collier is very understanding of her fears. He's a gentle man.
It is interesting to find out whether these two fine people will be able to work out their differences. In Home for the Holidays, Rochelle Alers shows the beauty of the holidays with family and memories, but there are also the problems that don't go away just because it's December 25th. I would like to return to Cavanaugh Island in another book. I enjoyed the island, the friendships and the families. At times the romance did seem too simply written or too slow for my taste. Still, there is much good in Rochelle Alers' novella. I had to read to the end. rochellealers
The book takes place in the month before Christmas. The author creates a beautiful Christmas scene with her words! I loved the small town feel and how it was decorated. When the main character has parties, you wished you were there too! The author described all the good foods to make you hungry. And of course, I can't forget the sweet romance,
Seriously, what more could you want? Well, the author also added recipes to the book and they sound delicious! I plan on making the devils eggs since the recipe is a little different from the one I have.
I thought this was a well written romance that did not disappoint. I highly recommend it for reading at Christmas time!
* I received this book from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review
Master Sergeant Collier Ward is thrilled to spend the holidays with his sister and niece. Getting to know his sister's new best friend is an unexpected bonus. As their relationship grows, the secrets they're both hiding threaten any chance of their relationship becoming anything more than a holiday fling.
Moving story with well-developed characters and a world you'll want to visit again and again. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series.
