Momma Leighellen's Book Review
If you are a fan of Hallmark movies, then I have the book for you!!
Hot fireman + cute dog + lonely veterinarian = Christmas Together, the perfect Hallmark Christmas book.
“Anything we have to let go of won’t compare to what’s ahead.”
This story follows a young veterinarian who comes back to her hometown over the holidays to help Doc, the man she learned from, who is recovering from cancer. Once in town she’s tasked with hosting a fundraiser to cover Doc’s bills and help keep his practice afloat. But she has to partner with Simeon, a local fireman from Texas, to pull off the event.
There’s instant chemistry between the two but both of them is leary to start something new. She was roasted by her last boyfriend and has a new job opportunity in another state. He’s supposed to be headed back to Texas to take over his parent’s business. Do they hold out, have a Christmas fling, or see if they can make it work in the long term?
While a sweet holiday story, I appreciated that it does touch on some very real topics like work/life balance, parental expectations, adoption, and cancer. But it stays in the hopeful zone and there’s plenty of joy to go around. Short, sweet, and full of swoony moments.
