The Christmas Bargain by Shanna Hatfield

The Christmas Bargain by Shanna HatfieldI think I gained 10 pounds from reading this book. Much of the romance between Filly and Luke occurred over breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Filly seemed to be cooking delicious meals all the time and I found myself drooling on my Kindle! I appreciate the author sharing a couple recipes at the end of the story, but my goodness Ms. Hatfield, you could create a whole cookbook from the food that Filly prepared! I particularly liked the way Luke determined to make the best of his forced marriage, and desired to woo his new bride each day hoping to win her heart. It was interesting to watch shy, timid, Philamena transform into beautiful, kind, but spirited, Filly. Very sweet, romantic, story about overcoming unexpected and painful circumstances. You won’t want to miss the ‘kissing lessons.’ I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or swoon!
