I should have stopped when the heroine in the first book started telepathically communicating with every animal in a 10 miles radius.

Just...no

Two Stone Creek stories in one book; contemporary Western romance.

The hero in this story is an architect Tanner Quinn who is town for the year that will take to build the new animal shelter that Olivia will be running. T

Review for A Stone Creek Christmas




The first story is the best in my opinion. I loved Tanner and Olivia and his daughter Sophie also. Tanner is doing his best for Sophie he just doesn't realize what he's doing is the wrong thing until Olivia appears in his life. Olivia has a special gift and being a vet is her life until she meets Tanner and Sophie they show her what it means to be alive. I really liked this story it was fun and heart warming. It is the first Christmas book that had a Santa sub p

Holiday in Stone Creek are two novels in one. The first one, A Stone Creek Christmas stares Olivia O'Ballivan and Tanner Quinn. Olivia is the vet for Stone Creek and she has the uncanny ability to speak to animals, so when she hears a distressed call from a horse in the stables next to her house, she can't help but go investigate. What she didn't expect to find was hot and irresistible Tanner Quinn. Olivia and Tanner both agree on a no-strings relationship, but that quickly changes for the both ...more

I was reading the Creed series and jumped to this book after I got done with Tyler's story because as I began to read A Creed in Stone Creek, I realized that the book made references to both Olivia (A Stone Creek Christmas) and Ashley (At Home in Stone Creek) as married with kids and the last time I read about them in Brad and Meg's story (The McKettrick Way) they were single. I learned my lesson when I read the McKettrick series in the order in which the website has them which is totally convol ...more

A two-story collection, the first deals with Olivia O'Ballivan, a vet who can talk to animals and has a very smart Golden Retriever, who tangles with Tanner Quinn, her next-door rancher and his 12-yr old daughter. This is a Christmas story and it wouldn't be complete with a tree-seller who is Santa in hiding (sort of).

The second story follows Olivia's sister, one of the twins, Ashley and explores whether Jack McCall, who stole her heart years earlier, is going to have it stolen again. OR will sh

I love anything that Linda Lael Miller writes and this is no exception. Both stories are about family and what brings them together. You have protective big brothers, caring sisters and sweet children. Lina makes rancher life sexy as hell. I mean who wouldn't want a cowboy of their own.

Tanner & Olivia's story is sweet and romantic. You have Tanner's daughter who tries her hardest to make Tanner believe he belongs in Stone Creek with Olivia.

Ashley & Jack's story is about finding the love

This is two story's in one book!And both were really good! The first one is about the town veterinarian ,and the new man in town with a 12 year old daughter.And the town vet also has the ability to talk to the animals!So as they both go through some family stuff,they as so find an attraction to each other!
The second story is about Ashley who runs the Bed and Breakfast in town,and who checks in, but an old boyfriend who works for the DEA.He broke her heart once and she was not going to let him

It's a little hard to grade this book as it's two stories in one. The first - A Stone Creek Christmas - was fun, but not nearly as riveting as the second - At Home in Stone Creek. Linda Lael Miller really nailed this story and to date, is my favorite of the Stone Creek series. There was real passion between the main characters and the story just pulled me in and tugged at my heartstrings - which is what I really like in a romance novel. So yeah, probably three stars for the first book, but a def ...more

two sisters, , two strong men, two Christmas romances, one small town. I liked Olivia's story because she has the talent of talking to animals--her dog Ginger is full of advice and made me laugh, Ashley's story was more bitter-sweet, she is morning the loss of a mother who was seriously disturbed When Jack McCall (the man who always walks away) walks back into her life bringing sure heartache. In true LLM fashion both stories have HEA.

Recommended to Laura by: Mary Ann
Enjoyed this book but not as much as the others in the series. Liked getting to know more about each character and the family. Not much plot to this one. Love story and in this one guy if fearful of commitment due to past tragedy in his life. Will continue to read more about this family. Like the way Linda Lael Miller writes. Even a rather weak story, she can drawn the reader in and want you to read more.
Brenda
I picked this up on Amazon for my Kindle when it was on sale, and loved the stories. That said, they were romantic, at times sappy, but great feel good reads that I needed because of a stressful week. More and more I realize I'm a "Mood Reader". Linda Lael Miller's stories can be counted on for heartfelt smiles.

Another 2-in-1 holiday release.

A Stone Creek Christmas

Perfect hero, perfect heroine, perfect dog…not to mention Rodney the reindeer. Perfect holiday reading.

At Home in Stone Creek

Well, I did it again. Grabbed the latest thing I saw from the grocery store without taking a close look at it. Guess what...it consists of two books I already own.

Good because this gives me more to trade at paperbackswap.com. Bad because I've wasted the money.

Oh, well.
Brianne
I really liked both of the novellas, but think I was pulled in At home in Stone creek - Ashley and Jack more so - they had past experiences together more than once and then were dealing with a lot of issues in the present as well.
Shawna Hansen
Loved this! I didn't think an animal communicator would draw me in, but I loved every page! Great holiday story. Rodney is adorable. The second sister's, Ashley's, story was also wonderful. I am looking forward to Melissa's story!
Stephanie
The first story took a while for me to get interested in but the second story was much better, especially since the main characters were minor characters from the first story and I was more interested in them. Good read.
Lisa Currier
Even though the stories are predictable, I liked them. LLM characters are well written and enjoyable. I've always liked that her characters intertwine from book to book. This was a good, easy fun read.
Niki
This is two books from Linda Millers Stone Creek series. It is the only two that I have read but liked them they caught your attention from the start and were fast and romantic with a little suspense./
Nicole
The second story in this book went on for what seemed like FOREVER! Too many shallow characters, I actually kept getting confused between who was who.
Sandy Forman-Johnson
This was a 2 for one and both books were superb. Couldn't put it down, the more I read the more I wanted to read.
Sharon Sherman
Linda Laael Miller has two more winners in this book. Not to be missed.
Kade
This is a pretty good book. Two stories that pair really well together.
Carole
An easy, light,quick read. Sometimes I just need a superficial story.
Kurt
Magical, makes me sentimental, brings out the desire to be generous-great book!
