One Enchanted Christmas
Last December, author Maren Grant went on a magical date with her book’s cover model—Colin Renwycke. Fast forward one year. With a looming deadline, Maren is desperate to recapture her creative spark. Then she remembers Colin’s invitation to visit his family’s Iowa farm…
Drew Renwycke never planned to move home and take over the farm. But he’s spent too many years watching his siblings unravel—including Colin. When Maren lands on his doorstep, he realizes she may be the key to coaxing his brother home.
One Enchanted Eve
As a Denver Culinary Institute student, Colin Renwyke is out to embark on a new career as a pastry chef. But despite his skills in the kitchen, he’s a mess in the classroom and his ongoing disasters are proving too much for his prickly instructor. If he loses his spot at the school, he’s out of backup plans.
Culinary school instructor Rylan Jefferson has the chance to reclaim her dream of running her own bakery. But she only has until Christmas Eve to come up with the perfect recipe to impress an eccentric investor. She has no time for holiday parties or family plans . . . and especially not for her unruliest student baker.
But Colin has the one ingredient Rylan needs most—talent. Lots of it. And when he makes a proposal that just might solve both their problems, Rylan can’t say no.
One Enchanted Noel
When Seb Pierce agreed to work for his wealthy grandfather for one year—in return for an early draw on his inheritance—he never expected the agreement to land him in a quirky small town in Iowa at Christmas-time, renovating a dilapidated theater…and running into a woman he never thought he’d see again.
Although she’s finally settled in her hometown, Leigh Renwycke can’t shake the familiar restlessness that used to get her into trouble. When Seb Pierce waltzes into her world and begs for her help planning the theater’s holiday reopening, it might be enough to jumpstart a new career…and to prove once and for all that the new-and-improved Leigh is here to stay. Until old secrets and new sparks get in the way…
This collection is perfect holiday reading material. I enjoyed each of these novellas and thought that together they made the perfect collection! I am soo glad I splurged on a paperback copy of this collection because the cover is amazing. One of my favorite covers of the year. It just looks as the title says, “enchanting”. I feel like when I hear the word “enchanting” I think about Kathleen Kelly in You’ve Got Mail. Each of these stories can be read as a stand alone story, but they share characters and build off of previous stories, so I would recommend reading them in order. They each had their own unique story to tell, however the common threads are the characters, the charming little town of Maple Valley and of course Christmas time! I just love Maple Valley and the quirks and character that is created in this little town. Think Gilmore Girls, and Stars Hallow as far as town spirit and quirky town events. So much fun to have the characters participating in the towns happenings and feel the small town charm coming off the pages of these stories. I enjoyed the Renwyke siblings and each of their stories. I loved that we got to see their flaws. Their messy, ugly, on my worst day I’m like this, situations. It really made me feel for the characters and connect with them. There were also some pretty romantic dates and lots of happy endings! My only wish is that we had met a long lost Renwyke sibling so that we could have another novella! I was not ready to finish! Sign me up for a trip to Maple Valley. First stop is Coffee Coffee and I am grabbing a latte before I head to the snowman building contest! If only!
