Rumor Has It In Christmas Falls by Melinda Curtis {Review}

Rumor Has It In Christmas Falls (Return to Christmas Falls * Book 4) by Melinda Curtis
Kindle Edition, 139 pages
Published October 23rd 2017 by Purple Papaya, LLC

Twelve unlucky years ago, rumors flew about Lexi and Kevin. And now? Well, not much has changed, except this time neither can run away. Not from Christmas Falls. And maybe . . . not from each other.

As a political strategist at Dunlop Bennet & Associates, Lexi Townsend's career is going nowhere. She's a cubical dweller writing speeches for freshmen senators in DC. But if she can hitch her career wagon to a rising political star, she’ll be on her way to a corner office in no time. When she’s offered a plum holiday assignment–an ideal candidate with deep pockets, someone who could make the leap from local to national politics–she starts to dream about that corner office.

Until she realizes her candidate is Kevin O’Malley, aka Kevin the Hottie, Kevin the Snob, Kevin the Liar, the same guy who shattered her high school reputation back home in Christmas Falls with a rumor. Assignment in hand, Lexi braces herself for the most difficult political race of her career--because this time it’s personal.

Seven romance authors bring you this holiday romance series about a group of special friends returning to their hometown at the request of their beloved teacher. Each book is a standalone, but read them all to fully enjoy the journey of these remarkable women and their emotional reunion with their mentor, an incredible woman who changes their lives and helps save a small town community forever.


My Review: 4 Stars

Isn't it crazy how rumors can make or break people? Lexi knows firsthand just how damaging rumors can be because of her secret high school relationship with Kevin. Working with him now, years later, is going to be a challenge for sure.

I thought it was slightly hard to connect to Lexi because of the chip on her shoulder that she holds towards Kevin, but when I really thought about it, she definitely has good reason to feel that way towards him and it would be tough to move on, especially when she has to work with him and those devilish tenancies of his pop up now and then. Has he really changed? He seems to do whatever will benefit him most, whether it's the truth or not, but he does have that charmingly good streak lying beneath it all. So on the flip side, while Kevin is likable, it took me some time to trust him, especially knowing his background.

I loved watching these characters shift their opinions and grow into their potentials, especially as things got tough. The interactions with some of the characters from the other books in the series is the icing on the cake, as far as I'm concerned. I loved Curtis's take on this town and enjoyed learning more about Lexi and her story. I highly recommend this series for sweet romance lovers and if nothing else, read this series this Christmas!
