Come home this Christmas to...
Where everyday dreams come true!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird continues her heartwarming holiday series...

Handsome entrepreneur Walt Christmas runs the Christmas Inn and is a firm but loving dad to his college-age twins, Noelle and Joy. Yet, with his girls growing older, Walt is starting to flounder in filling his lonely hours. Though it’s been years since he lost his wife, Walt has remained a confirmed bachelor, deflecting attempts by his matchmaking mom and others in town to find him the ideal mate. Walt never imagines that the perfect woman for him will land on his doorstep—just in time for the holidays! Gloria Chavez is more than a little bossy, but her stunning smile and warm, generous ways quickly capture Walt’s heart. But how can Walt be sure Gloria’s ready for the big dose of Christmas he’s able to deliver?

Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series is one of my favorite holiday series. Ginny has this ability to capture the spirit of Christmas and make the reader feel it, even when it’s the middle of summer. The series centers around three families in the fictional town of Christmas Town, Tennessee. To say the town is magical would be an understatement. But I don’t want to go into too much detail. Honestly, with each book I read, I discover more and more about the characters.

I loved that I was drawn in immediately with a magical meet cute between Bed and Breakfast owner Walt Christmas and Gloria Chavez, a high school drama teacher from Miami. Gloria is in town to help out her best friend Savannah Christmas, who happens to be Walt’s sister-in-law. Of course with this being Christmas Town, everyone from Savannah to Walt’s mother wants to set these two up and marry them off to each other. Walt has been raising his two college-age twin daughters as a single father, since the death of his wife ten years ago. He hasn’t had a desire to date or be with another woman since. Gloria isn’t truly looking for anyone. She’s dated in the past but no one has really and truly captured her attention and made her heart beat in double time. All of this changes when Gloria arrives on Walt’s doorstep.

For me, I found it to be refreshing that Walt and Gloria were older characters, in their mid-thirties and early forties. I liked watching these two fight their feelings for each other. But I loved when they gave into their feelings and allowed the magic surrounding them to take over. I know I keep using the word “magic” to describe this book and the series, but once you start reading, you will understand what I’m talking about. I also love that Ginny has written a true series, where past couples still make appearances and you’re able to see how their lives are progressing. I truly believe that this bordering on sweet, closed door romance can be read as a standalone. I’m looking forward to the next book, as the main characters aren’t part of the founding families of the town. I want to see how Ginny makes their coming together and falling in love magical.
