Her Best Christmas Ever

Her Best Christmas Ever by Judy Duarte

What was this book about?

Country music star Greg Clayton just wants to return home for the holidays. So he can’t help but be surprised when the only person there to greet him is his Grannie’s housekeeper Connie Montoya. At first Greg is excited, he had an instant attraction to her the last time he saw Connie. Then he realizes Connie is very, very pregnant.

Trapped in a storm Greg is the only one there to deliver the baby. Does the experience bond the two? Can a single mother of a newborn really have a relationship with a country music star? Connie had dreams of her own but has given them up – why? How will that affect their budding love for one another?

What did you think about the book?

The feelings one gets when a child is born – whether the child is theirs biologically is something that the main “hero” finds surprising. He immediately bonds with the child. Did that make his relationship with the mother something he was more willing to follow through with? Possibly?

With these Silhouette books I usually feel the story is too quick. I barely get started and it is over. Sometimes that is a sign of something that is really good – and I don’t want to let go – and other times it is a sign that I didn’t like the book. With this book I didn’t feel that feeling of too quick or too slow. It seemed generally just right. I enjoyed the story. (I mean who wouldn’t want to be rescued by a country music star and swept away with their newborn baby and turned into their very own superstar?)

What genre would you consider this?
Contemporary Romance
