Joaquin Solis has been in love with Savannah Wilson ever since she waltzed into his North Carolina town, on a mission to save her best friend’s romance bookstore. Winning her heart won’t be easy for this Christmas-loving cowboy, especially as Savannah is determined to head back to New York as soon as she hatches the perfect plan to keep the business afloat. Even though it could mean losing her, Joaquin decides to help Savannah convince a famous romance author to come out of seclusion. In the meantime, with the right amount of holiday magic, a little mistletoe, sleigh rides, and tree decorating, our kind and thoughtful cowboy might be able to win over the somewhat curmudgeonly Savannah.
VERDICT A delightful supporting cast of friends and family members round out this sequel to The Good Ones, which is as cozy as the hero’s favorite Christmas sweater, with a warm, home-for-the-holidays feel.
