Brie Graves might be jobless, living with her brother, and recovering from a painful break-up, but she's determined to enjoy the holidays. Until the end of the year, she's going to do anything she wants to do, no matter how crazy it might be. Soon, she discovers exactly what she wants--to spend a week with a fascinating, sophisticated stranger. It doesn't matter that she only knows his first name or that he's more than twenty years older than her. After this one week, she'll never see him again.
Cyrus Damon has spent his life making money and holding himself to impossibly high standards. Pressured into taking a vacation in Savannah, he's alone and at loose ends, so he lets himself do something he never would have considered otherwise. He gives in to his attraction to a beautiful, free-spirited, and much-too-young woman. But, after the week is over, he'll once more be the man he's always been, left with nothing but the memory of a woman who made him happier than he's ever been.
He has no idea that when he visits his nephew in a charming bed and breakfast called Eden Manor, he'll find the woman he thought he'd left for good.
Christmas at Eden Manor is a short holiday romance with an old-fashioned hero in his fifties and a lot of swoony romance. It concludes a sequence of three series (Heirs of Damon, Beaufort Brides, and Eden Manor), but it can easily be read as a standalone.
My Opinion 4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This is another brilliant novella in the Eden Manor series and it's really quite sweet how well Brie and Cyrus gel together considering their age difference, which with the mature way Brie acts never really seems to make much difference at all.
We really see another side to Cyrus that only gets brought out by Brie. Even when at times he believes that he is doing something to spare Brie for the future she see's right through him to the heart of the matter and helps him move forward.
We also see a better connection between Cyrus and his nephews a bond which only seems to be getting stronger.
I really loved this book and hope we get to see more from these characters.
