"Christmas Kisses" by Verna Clay is a very lovable Christmas romantic read. This read is the fifth in this author’s Romance On The Ranch series.
This novel of about Mac and Cecelia both being very unhappy...one due to illness and the other because of having a rich and privilege life in Manhattan but still in the end was unhappy. Cecelia decides to visit her brother and his family in Paxtonville, Colorado. Who knew while there her life would change forever? Cecelia decides to purchase a local coffee shop and relocate. Who knew at this time a reclusive painter by the name of Conner MacKenzie would be a customer of the local coffee shop (even though it was delivered to his home). This wonderful story will pick up from here. This is where I say you must pick up "Christmas Kisses" to see who this author will bring it all together to the readers. You will find this novel very inspiring with characters that are well portrayed, colorful, believable and likable. This is a fast pace read. The author has written such a beautiful story of two lonely people coming together.
"Christmas Kisses" will definitely touch your heart and I recommend this novel to you as an excellent read along with the series: Dream Kisses, Honey Kisses, Baby Kisses and Candy Kisses.
Although born into wealth and privilege, Cecelia Brightman has never found the forever-after kind of happiness she seeks. She has devoted her life to helping others through charity work, but now, at the age of forty-two, she can no longer continue along the same path. Much to the chagrin of her parents, she leaves the trappings of wealth to follow her heart to the small town of Paxtonville in Colorado to be near her brother and his large family.
As for the hero of Christmas Kisses, he is new to the series and carrying baggage from a previous sorrow that almost destroyed him. However, I have a feeling Cecelia may be the perfect answer for Connor MacKenzie.
This story has been written specifically with Christmas in mind, so, of course, there are children involved. Some of the youngsters are new to the series; others are rejoining the ongoing saga. But all will have a wonderful Christmas!
Christmas Kisses is a continuation of The Romance on the Ranch Series, but it can be read as a stand-alone, as can all the stories in this collection.
