About the book:
From USA Today bestselling author Jenny Hale comes a heartwarming Christmas story about the magic of childhood memories, the strength of family, and the joy of falling in love when you least expect it.
Carrie Blake loves her job as a nanny, but while her friends are settling down, all of Carrie’s time is spent with other people’s families. Though it breaks her heart, her New Year’s resolution is to embark on a new career and fix her lonely personal life — but only after she finishes one last amazing job. The house is beautiful, the kids are adorable, and she’s in charge of decorating the tree! There’s only one problem: her boss.
Single dad Adam Fletcher might be both handsome and successful, but he’s always working. Doesn’t he realize he’s missing out on precious moments with his son and daughter? When Adam’s family arrives for Christmas, Carrie finds the perfect allies in her quest to help Adam bond with his children. But she doesn’t plan on a connection forming between her and Adam — or for his family to start feeling like the home she’s always craved. With the clock counting down to the new year, Carrie resolves to give Adam and his children the best Christmas ever before leaving for good. But Christmas is the time for miracles, and happily ever after is the greatest gift of all.
A Christmas to Remember by Jenny Hale is a standalone contemporary romance novel. This one of course is set during the Christmas season and the days leading up to the holiday as the title indicates.
Carrie Blake loves children and she loves her job as a nanny but as time has gone by Carrie has realized that her job is holding her back from a family of her own. Vowing to finish this one last nanny job Carrie is planning a change in her life.
Carrie finds herself working for single dad Adam Fletcher during this Christmas season and what Carrie notices is Adam needs a refresher on family time. Sure his children are being well cared for but they need daddy time but the more time Carrie spends with Adam’s family the more she finds herself falling for him.
I have read several books by author Jenny Hale in the past so I already suspected going into this one that I would enjoy it. Of course the author was the main attraction for me but I immediately enjoyed Carrie and thought well that makes sense we share the same name! But of course the best part of the novel was showing the family togetherness and bringing the season to life. Definitely a nice tale for the season.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
