True love and holiday cheer combine for an unforgettable romance in this second Happily Ever After novel featuring a North Carolina bookstore from the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Ones.
All he wants for Christmas… The second Joaquin Solis saw Savannah Wilson, he knew she was destined to be his wife. Unfortunately, Savannah’s sights are set on a happily-ever-after of another kind: skewering the boss who got her fired. Until then, she won’t act on the scorching sexual chemistry that is brewing between them, leaving Joaquin scrambling to find a way to capture her heart. 
When the opportunity arises to use his ranch to boost Savannah's publicity career, Joaquin doesn’t hesitate to invite her into his world at Shadow Pines and woo her with all of his Christmas loving mojo. It’s a gamble since the holidays aren’t really Savannah's thing and helping her might also mean losing her as she plans to shake the dust off of their quaint town in North Carolina and head back to New York City the first chance she gets. 
But Joaquin believes in the magic of Christmas and he knows with a little help from his friends at the Happily Ever After Bookstore, he can convince the woman of his dreams that he’s a keeper…

Karen’s Thoughts

The Christmas Keeper by Jenn McKinlay is a heartwarming and witty tale about a cowboy, Joaquin Solas, who is determined to get the woman of his dreams, but Savannah Wilson had other ideas. One problem is that Savannah loathes Christmas; therefore, Joaquin sets out to change her mind with tacky Christmas sweaters and holiday mojo. Savannah tries to resist the cowboy’s overabundance of Christmas spirit, not to mention, the chemistry sizzling between them.

Christmas magic goes a long way for these two to find their happy ever after. Christmas is my favorite time of the year, so I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and loved both Joaquin and Savannah.

Reviewer: Karen’s legally blind status may prevent her from driving her car, but it doesn’t stop her from reading books.  Whenever she isn’t on Facebook, she reads novels of hot alphas whether they’re cowboys, ex-military, vampires, wolf shifters, Scotsmen in kilts, or Rakes of the Regency era.  She also enjoys spicy romances and mystery thrillers.  When not reading, she dabbles in writing cowboy and vampire stories and wears western clothing, boots, and hats.  The only thing missing is a cowboy and his horse, (or his Ford F-150 truck).  She lives in hot, hot Florida, (dreaming of moving where the cowboys roam), along with a hubby of 28 years and 2 cats.
