Christmas Secrets by Donna Hatch {Review}

Christmas Secrets by Donna Hatch
Kindle Edition, 158 pages
Published November 9th 2017 by Mirror Lake Press LLC
Holly has two Christmas wishes this year; finally earn her mother's approval by gaining the notice of a handsome earl with an impeccable reputation, and learn the identity of the stranger who gave her a heart-shattering kiss...even if that stranger is the resident Christmas ghost.
My Review: 4 Stars

I love a good story that starts out with a bang and boy does this one ever! Holly decided to innocently watch for the supposed ghost that appears at her brother-in-law's house each year, but she ends up with a mystery kiss that even curled my toes. I think I was almost as caught off guard as she was.

The flirtatious characters plays a very nice game of round robin, as the different individuals fall in and out of love at an alarming rate. However, once a firm and forbidden attraction is formed, the romantic tension could be cut with a sharp knife. The butterflies were flying rampant in my stomach throughout and the swoon literally oozed out of my kindle from just a glance or a brief graze of the hand.

Not only did I identify with the solid Christmas traditions throughout the story, but I absolutely adored the cast, especially the main characters. Holly is overly eager to please her mother and I love her growth throughout the book. I especially loved that her love interest wasn't stodgy and stiff, but had a ripple of delightful wickedness flowing through his veins, especially considering how society deems he should be. Donna Hatch always delivers a great Regency story, and this one put me in a jolly holiday mood.
Content: mild romance (kissing)
