Book Review - Christmas on 4th Street by Susan Mallery

ABOUT THE BOOK


There's nowhere better to spend the holidays than with New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery in the town of Fool's Gold, where love is always waiting to be unwrapped… 
Noelle Perkins just got a second chance at life, and she intends to make the most of it. That's why she's opening her own store in Fool's Gold, California. The Christmas Attic celebrates everything that's magical about her favorite season. Business is booming, and as a bonus, gorgeous army doctor Gabriel Boylan has offered to help out during the holiday rush. 
Gabriel's memories of Christmas past contain more sour grapes than sugarplums, thanks to his drill sergeant father. Spending the holidays with his family while he recuperates from an injury sounds as appetizing as last year's eggnog. Still, there are some enjoyable distractions in town, including sunny, sexy Noelle…and the red-hot mistletoe kisses they can't stop sharing. 
Gabriel didn't think he was made for happily-ever-afters. But when fate hands you a love as sweet and surprising as this, only a fool could refuse….

REVIEW


I loved Noelle and Gabriel’s story.  I’m a huge fan of Susan Mallery’s, but this is one of my favorite stories of hers yet.  They say opposites attract, and these two are a perfect example of people who have been given almost too much to handle in life and dealing with it in very different ways.  The ways these two compliment each other is encouraging and hopeful to anyone looking for true love.


It was so nice to finally see Kenny and Bailey’s story.  These two have been circling each other for several books now, and it has been obvious for a long time how much Chloe adored Kenny.  This had the right amount of sentiment for a Christmas story, without being over the top, and had the heart that I’ve come to love and expect from Susan Mallery’s books.


OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
