THE TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS: The Ballad of Lula Jo
A Lonesome Point Novella
It’s the time of year for miracles…
Once upon a time, Lula and Carter were inseparable and Christmas was Lula’s favorite time of the year. But when Lula refused Carter’s proposal one dark December night—unwilling to abandon her hometown to live the dangerous life of a treasure hunter’s wife—the holiday lights went out in her heart. She abandoned all hope of romance and embraced a hermit’s existence, keeping her distance from dangerous men and untamed cowboys. Until now…
Years of hard knocks have taught Carter that the greatest adventure is the one he once found in Lula’s arms. He’s back in Lonesome Point determined to win back the only woman he’s ever loved, but Lula is just as determined to keep her heart under lock and key. She gives Carter twelve days—and twelve dates—to make his case before she sends him on his way, not counting on the fact that the two of them have grown into people even more meant to be.
It looks like Lula and Carter are on track to Happily Ever After take two, but when Lula’s old fears are reawakened Christmas Eve it will take a holiday miracle to keep them together.
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This is a quick novella that focuses on Mia's (from book one of the Lonesome Point, Texas series) cousin Lula.
The first chapter covers the past, when Lula and Carter were young and very much in love, but his need to travel and her need to stay at home ripped them apart.
Then we come to the present and catch up to the present day Lula and Carter and find out what happened to them in the 11 years that have passed.
Both tease each other and come alive again when they are with the other, not only do they remember the fond times of before, but they start to get to know each other and make new wonderful memories and both of them realise that they very much are still in love with the other.
It was a lovely, but quick novella that had me turning page a after page and gutted when it had ended.
