Season of Joy by Annie Rains
Fall in love with this heartfelt holiday romance between a down-on-his-luck Christmas tree farmer and a woman with plans to bring the merriment back to their town.
For single father Granger Fields, Christmas is his busiest — and most profitable — time of the year. But when a fire devastates the Merry Mountain Tree Farm, he fears the season won’t be holly or jolly unless he can convince free spirit Joy Benson to care for his two rambunctious daughters. Yet while Granger wants to focus on saving his business, Joy seems determined to shake up his family’s Christmas with her festive ideas and merry making.
Joy is counting down the days until she can open her own art gallery. Babysitting Abby and Willow will help her reach her goal, and when inspiration strikes, Joy convinces Granger that her craft classes can bring even more holiday cheer to the farm. As crowds return to the farm and Joy’s creative side flourishes, life with Granger and his girls begins to feel like home. But with Christmas coming nearer, can Joy convince Granger to open his heart again? Or will their newfound happiness be as fleeting as the newly fallen snow?
Annie Rains has done it again with this Christmas story!
She has written a fantastic Christmas story full of hope, dreams, and Christmas of course! I loved the story plot and the characters. I could really feel for Joy and the heartache she was enduring. The little girls, Abby and Willow, also grow on you. Annie Rains has a great way of making the characters feel like people we know in real life. I wish this were made into a Hallmark movie!
This maybe book #6 in the Sweetwater Springs Series, but it can be read as a standalone. I am reading them out of order. I just love her books 🙂
I have not been disappointed by an Annie Rains book. That’s the truth! The story flowed flawlessly, the plot was just right, and the ending was not a disappointment. I would highly recommend Annie Rains to anyone looking for a light, fun, and Christmas feel read.
