All he wants for Christmas...is an answer
Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks. So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers.
But Willa Fairchild is not the conniving woman he expects to find. Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart. And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.

"A Bramble House Christmas" by C.J. Carmichael. This is the first book of the series I have read and had no trouble following. We meet Willa and her son Scout traveling in a bad snowstorm and along the way, we are also introduced to Finn. I liked Willa. She's a single mom that is overly protective of her son - rightly so, we come to find out. Her life hasn't been easy as of late and when she meets Finn, she falls hard. Finn is a good guy, despite the circumstances that bring them together. He's funny and kind and great with Scout. Overall, this is an enjoyable read that is smooth and flows nicely. It's a feel good story and although there is a bit of tension at some spots, it's not overwhelming and Ms. Carmichael, keeping with the feel good aura, smooths it over quickly enough. There isn't any action or adventure - it's a simple love story. Willa, Finn and Scout are enjoyable and work really well together. The other characters in the story are fun too - even Aunt Mabel! For a story that isn't overrun with angst and that will make you sit and smile, I would say check this one out.
