Reviewed for Romancing the Readers Blog have so many feelings about this book that I m afraid I won t do this review justice I "KNOW THAT SOUNDS KINDA CRAZY BUT " that sounds kinda crazy but s how I feel I started writing this review in my head and I have to tell you it was ood Unfortunately If you re looking for a sweet holiday themed romance with a few uirky characters and a supernatural element Christmas In Harmony Harbor has Boy Soldiers of the Great War: Their Own Stories for the First Time got you covered Read my full review here I haven t read a Christmas based romance that I didn t like Reading about two people falling in love during the most magical time of the year alwaysets me misty eyed So when I saw that Debbie Mason had written another book in her Harmony Harbor series I couldn t wait to read itI loved the plotline of Christmas in Harmony Harbor It was fast paced and well written There was a spot in the book where it lagged But the author was able to Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders get the book back on trackThe storyline of Christmas in Harmony Harbor was interesting It was a mixture of A Christmas Carol and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas It reminded me of A Christmas Carol because of the journey that Caine took during the time he was with Evie Each task he had to complete had him reflecting on his past present and future It reminded me of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas because Caine s heartrew three sizes too large towards the end of the bookI was surprised to find out that Christmas in Harmony Harbor was oing to be the last book in the Harmony Harbor series That upset me because I didn t want the series to end Hopefully the author will start a new series that features a least some of the unattached characters thinking Clio here That way I can catch up on what the characters in this series have been doingChristmas in Harmony Harbor can be read as a standalone book But considering the intertwining storylines I would read the previous books I wish I did because some plotlines were mentioned that had me oing Huh I loved Evie but she was a hot mess She was trying to save her family business and disrupt Caine s plans for her house But she did make me laugh during the book I thought her idea to win Caine over by using the Angel Tree was perfect I also liked how she saw the best in everyonething Like her shop It was a rat and mice also liked how she saw the best in everyonething Like her shop It was a rat and mice mess yet she loved itI didn t like Caine for the first half of the book He was hellbent on Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age getting revenge on the Gallaghers on behalf of hisrandmother But then he met Evie and he started to thaw He agreed to 3 wishes from the Angel Tree It was after that scene that I began to like him But I wish that he stood up to his Les Innocents grandmother soonerCaine and Evie s romance was cute They weren t expecting to develop feelings for each other Caine viewed Evie as a PITA and Evie thought Caine was the second coming of Satan But I saw that spark The minute that Caine went into the basement and faced down rats I knew it I loved it even though it was InstaloveI thought that the secondary characters made this book Caine srandmother GG Seamus Evie s mother and all of the characters from the previous book added depth to the story My favorite Was Seamus I Had This Seamus I had this picture of this barrel chested handsome Irishman helping his nephew My least favorite was Caine s randmother Up until the end she insisted on doing things that harmed everyone I also couldn t et past what she told and do to Caine I did a mental WTF when that came outThe end of Christmas in Harmony Harbor was bittersweet I liked it because I ot to see Caine and Evie s HEA But I was sad because the author is ending the series Copy received via Netgalley for an honest reviewFor me it is

and in the Harmony Harbor series Christmas in HARMONY HARBOR IS THE NINTH BOOK Harbor is the ninth book the Harmony Harbor series and although there is a lot of history in this story I did not feel lost at all It was a splendid enemies to lovers romance that had two characters at odds with each other despite the rowing attraction that was developing between them Over the past year Evangeline Christmas had been fighting having her property and business which had been in her family for over a century taken over by Wicklow Developments With how much resistance she "put up and believe me there was plenty and with how much money she was costing him Caine Elliot " up and believe me there was plenty and with how much money she was costing him Caine Elliot have iven Up On His Idea on his idea unfortunately he was committed to building an office tower in Harmony HarborWhat Caine had planned would indeed bring a ton of business to Harmony Harbor but his motivation for the development was truly not economical He was committed to following through on this deal for the sake of his dying randmother whose motivation was one of revenge Caine had been doing his best to et the deal done but his Gone: The Disappearance of Claudia Lawrence and Her Father's Desperate Search for the Truth grandmother was one who was willing to bend any rules if the end served her purpose and he did not want anyone hurt in the process It was because of his fear of what levels hisrandmother would stoop to that Caine made a trip to Harmony Harbor to try and reason with Evangeline in person to 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts get the deal done What Caine hadn t been expecting was to meet as much resistance as he didHe knew that Evangeline was notoing to make finalizing the business transaction easy for him but he had not considered how far she would take things or how much local support she had For many reasons but trying to Moonrise (Snowfall, get the job done being the foremost idea Caine agreed to a fulfill three Angel Tree wishes from Evangeline s tree at her store He figured he darner some ood will with the locals and win a bet fair and suare in order to move forward with the project What Caine had never anticipated was that he would enjoy his time in Harmony Harbor or that spending time with Evangeline would change his heart in ways than oneI found Christmas in Harmony Harbor to be utterly charming I was very excited that it had all the wonder of a holiday story but loved that it also had elements of a saucy romance mystery suspense and the paranormal All that just made this book that much better I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading this story and was thrilled with how enuine the characters were I liked most of them ha ha ha there were the antagonists in this story and of them I was not a fan They were plenty naughty but despite having no love for certain characters all of the characters in this story were memorable and added much to the plot Overall
