A Christmas Homecoming by Melissa McClone Review


A kiss is just a kiss…

Unless it’s under the mistletoe.

Ellie Smith is determined to make up for Christmases past by spreading holiday cheer throughout the Bar V5 dude ranch, but tech “bah, humbug” billionaire, Josiah Whittaker, refuses to bask in the spirit of the season.

Unwilling to let the geek-to-gorgeous Josiah win, Ellie plans to give him a Christmas he’ll never forget. But after a simple kiss under the mistletoe, Ellie and Josiah both start questioning everything. Can Christmas really bring the gift neither one of them were expecting: true love?

My Review: 

A sweet story about one woman helping a Christmas hating Scrooge overcome his hatred of the holiday.

Josiah Whittaker hates Christmas.  He never wanted to return to Montana once he left.  And here he is at Bar V5, a working dude ranch and hotel that has been transformed into a Christmas winter wonderland.  He is being forced to take some time off work after a serious illness.  No work allowed.

Ellie Smith was excited to learn the first billionaire guest at Bar V5 was one of her late brother's friends. The last time she saw Josiah, she was only 14 years old.  Josiah sure has changed.  Ellie is having a hard time keeping her eyes off him.

When Ellie finds out Josiah hates Christmas, she sets out to change his mind.  With a little luck, some mistletoe, a group of children and a real live Santa, Ellie just might be able to convince Josiah that Christmas is the best time of year.

This wonderful Christmas story will really get you into the holiday spirit. Ellie and Josiah are the perfect example of opposites attract, and that going back home can lead to happiness and surprises.
