Book Blurb

Nicara Elms has been living her life her way without a man for the past seven years. Hidden away in her peaceful cottage after the loss of her daughter, she shies away from the public eye and the high society lifestyle her parents live for. However, everything changes when she meets her next door neighbor’s handsome son.

Tobias Ellis has moved back in with his mother and young son following the break-up of his marriage. Giving into his mother’s demands, he finally agrees to meet the girl next door, and Nicara is blown away by what she feels for him the first time he holds her in his arms.

With Christmas fast approaching, something wonderful is about to happen, and a special delivery will bring these two lovers even closer than they could ever have imagined.

My Review

Deeply romantic, feel good read 5 stars

A Christmas Delivery is a sweet contemporary romance of second chances and new beginnings. I found it to be a deeply romantic and feel good read, with a seasonal flavour that can be appreciated whatever the time of year.

Both Nicara, and Tobias have had difficult experiences – Nicara in particular has had a tragic past. They do however, form an immediate and deep attraction to each other, encouraged by Tobias’ matchmaking mother who happens to be Nicara’s friend. The romance is sweet and includes some sizzling lovemaking scenes.

Nicara and Tobias are a couple I felt myself rooting for from the off. I was left wondering where their relationship will go despite their physical attraction – Will luck shine down on Nicara after all the heartbreak she has endured? Dare she hope? Does Tobias want anything long term? How will Nicara’s family react when they may very well have plans of their own for their daughter? It was not clear how their relationship would develop as the author introduced a number of twists and turns. I was entertained throughout, by this emotional read.

Recommended for contemporary romance readers who desire a feel good, romantic read.
