Review: Holly Daze ( Christmas Traditions #7)

Holly Daze

Holly Daze by Gina Welborn

After a year of geological surveying northeastern Iowa, English paleontologist James Holly yearns to join a fossil dig in Colorado. Although amused by the town’s folklore and Christmas festivities, he doesn’t believe in superstitions or curses. Celebrating the holiday only reminds him of the family he lost. What goodwill he has for the townsfolk dissipates after someone steals one of his fossils. For once in his life he needs is a bit of luck on his side, and he’ll take it, even if it’s in the form of a charming lady.

Everyone knows fortune favors Lena Reinhardt. That’s why on St. Barbara’s Day since she turned eighteen, she’s the lucky one who places the cherry twig in the holy water. The town believes her good fortune causes the year’s windfall of crops and livestock, and it will continue as long as she stays unmarried. This year, though, Lena believes God sent James to change her luck. Now if she can only convince him…

Thoughts:

Holly Daze is a wonderful story! I love Gina Welborn’s writing and was delighted by her charming, holiday novella! James Holly and Lena Reinhardt are endearing characters and I enjoyed reading their story. Although it is a Christmas Traditions novella, this engaging story can be enjoyed any time of the year! I loved Holly Daze and highly recommend this novella!
