Olivia Darling had never done anything impulsive – until she left the east and opened a boarding house in Springwater. But still an outsider at heart, and struggling to make a success of her business, Olivia finds herself turning to the other newcomer in town, the rough-hewn and embittered man she’s taken in. As the Christmas season brings them together, Olivia finds in Jack’s arms a passionate sweetness she never knew existed. And with the stunning revelation of Jack’s true identity, all of Springwater witnesses a heartwarming reunion that will change their lives forever.
Linda Lael Miller's Springwater Christmas is the last story in the Springwater series set in the late 1800's. There is one more book after this one but it’s set in present day so I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about it yet. All I know is that I’m going to miss visiting this place! The town and the people sure have grown since I first met them and now that I have to leave the rustic Springwater for good it’s kind of bittersweet. I’ll miss everyone so much but at least I’ll know what happened to everyone and the town when I read Springwater Wedding.
I enjoyed Olivia and Jack’s story and although Olivia is a bit of a pain at first, you eventually get used to her and she starts to soften up. I always assumed that at least one of the McCaffrey’s boys was alive, because they’re mentioned in just about every book but this went above and beyond my expectations! I sincerely hope that I have interested someone in this fabulous western romance series from all of the posting I have done on these books.
