Title: Falling for Christmas
Author: Kate Hewitt
Series: Falling for the Freemans #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Welcome to Creighton Falls, New York… a town time forgot where miracles happen…
Glamorous city girl Hannah Ford wasn’t thinking when she walked out of a Christmas party and drove three hundred miles into a snowstorm; she just needed to escape. Thankfully local carpenter Sam Taylorcomes to her rescue, and the unlikely pair are forced to spend a snowed-in Christmas together.
All Sam planned for Christmas was to get drunk alone. The holiday has always been something to be endured, until Hannah tumbles into his life, making it magical. Now Hannah and Sam have a chance to have a Christmas together… and make it the best one either of them have ever had.
But can one night out of reality turn into something that’s lasting and real?

Another cute Christmas read from Tule, this time pitching a city girl against a country boy in upstate New York with a blizzard, some heartache and lots of tangled up feelings thrown in.
The romance between these two is pretty tentative throughout. Hannah is at a bit of a crossroads, finding herself dissatisfied with her life but unsure what to do about it, while Sam is existing more than living. I don’t feel like I got to know either of them too well, because Hannah doesn’t really know what she wants and Sam is very closed off.
However, I did enjoy the way they cautiously got to know each other, trading questions and probing a little deeper. It’s a short and pretty sweet read, even if it did feel more like a set up for Creighton Falls and the rest of the series (Falling for the Freemans) than a romance solely between these two characters. The ending left me with more questions than it answered – mostly about just what these two were going to do with their lives and how I wanted them to find a way to work together perhaps.
So overall this is an enjoyable read that’s definitely whetted my appetite for more from this setting, even if these characters themselves left me a touch underwhelmed.
Falling for Christmas is Out Now!
