Montana Secret Santa by Debra Salonen is book number three in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. This is Krista Martin and Jonah Andrews' story. This was a cute story where two opposites were thrown together to organize and work on the Secret Santa project. I enjoyed watching Krista and Jonah’s relationship grow. The dogs were a great addition to the story. I loved how Krista and Jonah fulfilled a need for each other that was missing. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This is a delightful little story of two people who get roped into helping out a secret Santa project in the magical town of Marietta. Krista's not too happy until she learns that the dog walking guy she just met is Jonah Andrews, wildly successful entrepreneur. Hoping he can give her some tidbits of advice to help get her business going again. Jonah knows what Krista really wants from him but he's certain he's seen glimpses of a sweet woman who secretly dreams of a life with love and family. He plans on getting to know that woman real well! A recommended read!
4.0 Star review of Montana Secret Santa (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 3) by Debra Salonen My favourite holiday of the year is Christmas; and I love stories about Christmas, throw in a small town and a love that is meant to be and you have A Wedding for Christmas. Debra Salonen is a new author to me and I enjoyed my first taste of her writing in Montana Secret Santa, book 3 in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. I have not read any of the other books in the series but that did not deter me from jumping at the chance to read this one. I was able to read and follow this book without difficulty or confusion. The story was well written and captured my attention and although not a particularly long read, I enjoyed this story and I am going to go and get the other books in the series. What’s a guy to do? When ad executive Krista Martin, literally falls at his feet, Jonah Andrews is instantly attracted. When fate plays into his hands and they both find themselves working together on the Marietta’s Secret Santa Society. Jonah is at a crossroads in his life and needs to make some decisions; he is also determined to get to know Krista. Krista on the other hand wants to focus on the belief that Jonah could be the one to help her put life back into her compay. I liked getting to know the people of Marietta; the story had a feel good feeling about it, perhaps it’s because it is a small town, but it gave me a feeling of warmth, friendship and family. Maybe it is the idea of the Secret Santa that got to me but the fact that Krista and Jonah are working to make Christmas wishes come true was a great deal of fun.
