Today I am reviewing Holiday Homecoming, the second book in the Donnelly Brothers series by Jean C. Gordon.
Here is a brief synopsis:
The Pastor’s Christmas Match
Pastor Connor Donnelly is done with romance.
After proposing to his high school sweetheart, Natalie Delacroix, five years ago — and being turned down — he’s putting all his time and energy into his community.
He’s determined to make the Christmas pageant he’s directing a success.
But family and friends are set on fixing up the good-looking bachelor in time for the holidays.
And now that Natalie is back in Paradox Lake — and helping with the pageant — they might just succeed.
Because working so closely with Natalie stirs up old feelings . . . and Connor starts to hope for a second chance with the one who got away.
HOLIDAY HOMECOMING was an absolute JOY to read!
Natalie Delacroix and Pastor Conner Donnelly were once in love. But Natalie chose her career over staying with Conner. When she returns home after five years, Conner is happily settled as the pastor of the community church.
When they are selected to work on the Christmas pageant together, it seems as if everyone is determined to get them back together. When career choices interfere, who will stay and who will go?
From the first page, I knew this was going to be a fun, delightful read. I’d love to share an example, if you’ll indulge me . . . such as when Natalie and Conner get locked in the attic by a couple of matchmakers!
But, of course, things don’t always work out the way we would choose. When Natalie get another job offer, it doesn’t look promising for her and Conner.
If you enjoy Love Inspired books, you’re going to love HOLIDAY HOMECOMING. If you like reading Christmas stories — and romance stories, you’ll be over-the-top, because this book has it all.
I honestly can’t praise it enough!
Read. The. Book.
You’ll love it!
God bless you!
