Actress Carrie Murray’s films are a Christmas lover’s delight. Filled with twinkling lights, festive carols, and happy endings, they’re the perfect escape from reality—for her and the audience. Then Tinseltown calls.
Braxton Timothy is Hollywood’s biggest action star. Handsome and talented but decidedly on the naughty list, no one can fathom his sudden desire to produce a feel-good Christmas movie—least of all, his no-name co-star.
Alternating between scenes reminiscent of everyone’s favorite made-for-TV movies and unexpected, off-screen chemistry, Gingerbread Falls has surprises in store this holiday season. The question is, will there be enough Christmas magic to convince two imperfect people that they’re perfect for each other?
This “sweet as a Christmas cookie” romance (bestselling author Heidi Swain) includes an original recipe for Maple Glazed Gingerbread Scones.
Magical and Love Affirming – 5 stars
This romance, which is full of the promise of new beginnings, oozes chemistry between the hero and heroine, and I found it to be a deeply romantic and love affirming read.
On the face of it Carrie Murray and Braxton Timothy have little in common. One a lesser-known actress of Hallmark style Christmas movies, who likes to keep herself to herself, and the other a Hollywood star of action movies, who has a reputation for being a player. However, when they start to film a new movie together, the season weaves its magic around them and the couple forge an deep connection.
The story is cleverly orchestrated as we witness them playing out the story of the fictional characters in the movie being filmed and their real life romance off the set. I loved how their relationship grows ever more complex and intense as their attraction to each other ratchets up. Carrie in particular is so fragile and has been through so much and my heart ached for her as she struggles to let go of a past that threatens to derail her future happiness. These two individuals find that they have far more in common than they ever imagined, yet will they put their past traumas behind them and take a chance on love? I was egging them on throughout.
A beautifully and sensitively written read that will delight lovers of contemporary romance.
