“If you want a sweet romance with of the holiday spirit of family and togetherness that’s found in holiday reads, then look no further.”
~ Under the Covers

There’s something comforting about reading a Jaci Burton holiday story.  It’s one of the things I look forward to around this time of year.  She always manages to embody everything I want to see in a holiday read.  LOVE ME BY CHRISTMAS is a standalone holiday novella about a widow who has been struggling to find her footing while raising her child.  A child she was only pregnant with when her husband passed away.  And through all those changes she’s had the incredible support of her brother in law.  Now, years later, she’s still living with him and maybe she’s realizing she should either move out or act on the attraction that’s been slowly simmering lately between them.

I am normally not the biggest fan of the setup here because your husbands’ brother can be a little creepy.  But Jaci tackled this in such a great way!  I’m not sure if it’s the time that’s passed or how their attraction developed, but this just had me rooting for them to just get together already from the start.  And she also addressed the concern of not wanting to immediately crossing a line because of that same thing.  I think this was done very realistically.  By the same token, I got a little annoyed at times with Ellie’s decisions and way of thinking.  I guess that can be both a good and a bad thing?

If you want a sweet romance with of the holiday spirit of family and togetherness that’s found in holiday reads, then look no further.  This is a short story so you’ll breeze through it and it definitely put a smile on my face.

Jaci Burton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of over 50 books. She lives in Oklahoma and when she isn’t on deadline (which is often), she can usually be found wrestling with her uncooperative garden, wrangling her dogs, watching an unhealthy amount of television, or completely losing track of time reading a great book. She’s a total romantic and longs for the happily ever after in every story, which you’ll find in all her books.

I agree, your deceased husbands brother can be creepy. I glad it was handled well here. I have always struggled with Jaci Burton’s books. I’ve always found them a little boring, but I know so many people who love her books.
