But when former pro athlete Cade Lockhart shows up to help, it’s clear Allison’s perfect life is a facade. A lie ended Cade’s career, and he won’t lie for anyone…even when Allison’s job is on the line. Still, can four adorable matchmakers create a Christmas miracle?

My Review:

Home for the Baby’s Sake
Christine Rimmer


Christine Rimmer’s latest is a sweet with heat small town romance. She gives readers a fast paced steamy story with a likeable couple, believable obstacles, outstanding costars and an adorable little boy set in a realistic small town locale. The audience will race through this steady paced story, long time series fans will appreciate the past series character check ins and new fans will love the fact that they can enjoy this as a stand-alone.

Hailey Bravo is happy directing the children’s performances at the local theater in her small Oregon town, however now everything is on hold until the theater’s new owner lets everyone know what lies ahead. The new owner just happens to be a very successful very handsome real estate developer who wants to turn the theatre into a boutique hotel. She’s hoping she can change his mind.

Roman Marek moved back to Valentine Bay with his mom and small son, he’s a two time loser in love and marriage but when he meets the beautiful, opinionated theatre director he’s willing to see if the third time really is a charm and he’s willing to up the ante by giving her something she wants, her beloved theatre. He just hopes his plan doesn’t come back to bite him in the butt.


  1. I like a good small town romance to escape to. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Home for Baby's Sake and sharing the new releases. Palmer's book looks good.

  2. I'm a sucker for a man and a baby together in a story. :) Oh, I spot another one I want to snag, to in the Long Tall Texans series.

  3. The Christine Rimmer book sounds like a lot of fun and of course a cute baby always attracts me.

    1. it was but then she's never written one I didn't like
