Review: Halfway to Christmas by Steena Holmes

Pages: 76

Goodreads:  Christmas has always been one of the busiest times of the year for the women of Halfway, Montana, and this year is no exception. 

It’s barely been a year since Nikki Landon and her son, Ryan returned to town. But a lot has happened in such a short time, and this year, with her new love by her side, the holidays are set to take on a whole new meaning. 

Despite how busy Becky Jennings and her husband Matt are running their tree farm, Christmas has always been a time for love, laughter and…baking. Now, with a baby on the way, their lives are about to change—but is all the stress starting to take its toll? 

Melissa Tait has spent the last nine years celebrating the holidays without her husband Wade. Now that he’s returned, the whole family has a lot of adjusting to do. But is it too much? 

After ten years away, Nyah Henderson has finally returned to Halfway to take over her father’s medical practice. As happy as she is to be home, small town life can be tough. Maybe the holiday season is just what she needs to find her way? 

Join the women of Halfway, Montana as they celebrate love, friendship and the benchmarks of life this holiday season while learning some hard life lessons along the way. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series and I must warn that I would start at the beginning of this series because the story completely builds from one book to the next.

There are four women that in book one returned to Halfway, Montana and in this book their lives move forward just a bit.  As I would say this is more in the novella range, it is a quick short read and I loved the holiday theme, I wish it were a little longer.  

Each woman gets a chance to tell the story from her point of view and I absolutely love a book that does that, its interesting to see other characters through a different characters point of view - did I confuse you?!  It just felt a little too short and too sweet.  

If during the holidays short and sweet works for you, I would still say you should start with book one and end here.  

Rating:  enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
