Christmas in Rose Bend By Naima Simone
Paperback published by Mills and Boon 28th October 2021
Can the festive magic heal her broken heart?
This Christmas there is more than one surprise in store
When Nessa Hunt arrives in Rose Bend she is looking for answers, and her absent father. Not a picture perfect town teeming with Christmas cheer, or the inkeeper’s ruggedly sexy son, Wolfgang Dennison.
Instantly the best between her and Wolf is undeniable, and the festive merriment of the town is almost enough to make Nessa believe in the Christmas spirit. But with lingering questions about her birth father, is there room in Nessa’s life for happy holidays and happily-ever-after?
I loved the first book, The Road to Rose Bend, so I just had to read the second book Christmas in Rose Bend, as the author Naima Simone has become my favourite author by writing the Rose Bend series with gorgeous characters that I just love reading about.
I’m really looking forward to reading Naima Simone’s new third book in the Rose Bend series, With Love from Rose Bend that is being published 1st May 2022.
The best thing about the series Rose Bend, is that they can all be read as a stand-alone, but as I have followed the story from book one, I have got to know the characters well and love how there are secrets hidden within the page turning storyline.
ER nurse Nessa Hunt didn’t do Christmas for her it was all about working Christmas Day in the hospital since her mother died. And on Christmas Day it was full of patients, that some have laugh out loud accidents, while other had more serious accidents.
Nessa’s father left her and her mother, when Nessa was about thirteen. Nessa hadn’t had a close relationship with him since he left the family. But he had named Nessa as guardian to his daughter Ivy. Now Nessa’s father has died she is to raise her thirteen year old stepsister Ivy.
Nessa and Ivy get to know each other by spending the Christmas spirit in Rose Bend inside a beautiful Inn. Wolfgang Dennison who works in the family run Inn maybe hot as hell, but with the Rose Bend’s thirty-fifth Yulefest and the opening Christmas tree lighting, I was hoping for Nessa and Wolfgang to kiss under the mistletoe.
I was in love with this Christmas festive feel good story waiting, reading to see if Nessa would like to celebrate Christmas now, and if she and Wolfgang will be celebrating Christmas together.
