Reviewed for www.thcreviews.com

In Not Another New Year's, Christie Ridgway has created an enjoyable story, that is basically a two-for-one romance, with a likable cast of flawed characters. Tanner Hart and Hannah Davis, the primary hero and heroine of the story are basically two ordinary people who unfortunately had some unusual things happen to them. They are basically two peas in a pod with a great deal in common. Both have put high expectations on themselves due in part to family dynamics. Af...more

Not Another New Year's by Christie Ridgway (suggested by a good friend who adores contemporary romances)

Even though I'm not a big fan of contemporary romances, this week it was fun to read New Year's-based stories, and Not Another New Year's was steamy enough to satisfy all. Hannah has gone to Coronado to confront the woman her fiancé dumped her for when she decides to throw caution to the wind and have a one-night stand with a very hot stranger. Things get complicated when a hysterica...more

This book is not what I expected. It not only follows the relationship between Tanner and Hannah, but also Tanner's brother Troy and Dez. Having both story lines play out kept it interesting and had me wondering what was going to happen next. The story was way longer than I expected (but I am not complaining) and there were a few plot twists I didn't see coming. My only complaint: I wasn't ready for it to be over. I would have loved to have gotten a little more insight in to how things were goin...more

This one is totally cute, fun and a bit funny to put it all together. I love the scenery made for the storyline which in Coronado (I never know what it would be like), but the sound of beach and ocean is always a good choice!

Hannah is a quite a Miss Prissy and always love to please everyone. Her mom, dad, family, everyone. Which ends up the way she lived back stabbed her later on. How she's being dumped by her former fiancee' after he's already dead. There's a mystery though that kept her from m...more

Not Another New Year's is the second book of the Holidays series by Christie Ridgway and since I loved Must Love Mistletoe, I had to read this one too,

I love to know more about the other characters from a story, so I was happy to read about Tanner, Finn's friend. He's also having a difficult time, feeling guilty for the death of a work partner and also because of the loss of his job. So when it's New Year's eve, he isn't exactly happy.

Hannah is t...more

Weak 3 stars. Ok for contemporary romance, but nothing special or different. Light on plot, character, and dialogue.

STORY BRIEF:

The main romance:
Hannah is a sweet second grade teacher. Her parents and relatives are protective, helpful, and drive her wherever she needs to go. She was engaged for several years to Duncan who dumped her a few months ago. Now she is on a ten day vacation in Coronado. Her Uncle Geoff works for the secret service. He asks one of his former agents Tanner to watch over h...more

**3.5 stars**

Hmm, I have a lot of questions that weren't answered in the end of this book. Honestly, I hopped between loving and strongly disliking this story. The characters, except for Hannah, were excellent. The romances (it's a double!) were pretty good. I felt more, and connected better, with the secondary romance between Troy and Dez. Desiree is how you write a heroine! Strong and independent and colorful. I...more

2nd in the "Holiday" series after "Must love Mistletoe" even though you do not need to read the 1st to understand the 2nd. Ridgway is a great writer and I have enjoyed every book I have read of hers and this is no different. While this is part of the Holiday series it really does not have a holiday feel about it so don't wait until the New Year to pick this book up!

Hannah is a schoolteacher who has always done the right thing and has been protected her whole life. She has lead her life to pleas...more

3.5 stars

In this second contemporary romance set on Coronado Island we delve into Tanner's life nearly a year after the tragic events of an assassination attempt foiled by the Secret Service. Unlike Finn, the male lead of the previous book, Tanner's role in the event was almost a comedy of errors which continues when wholesome school teacher, Hannah Davis lands in his lap on New Year's Eve. While the two dance around each other, Tanner's brother, Troy, and Desiree, the woman who stole Tanner's S...more

I LOVED this book!

The book was MORE than I expected. There is also a little suspense thrown in. That only made it better, if that is even possible.

It’s a romance that's a little hot. Okay, it’s a REALLY hot romance book. You will definitely need to a cold shower or two.

Hannah Davis is a school teacher from a small town, out for an adventure, after getting dumped by her fiance. In truth, she's actually gone to Coronad...more

This is the second in the Holiday Duet series. This is a well written romance that is an enjoyable afternoon read.

Hannah Davis says: "I hate Auld Lang Syne!"

After all, this year brought Hannah nothing but the memory of her wandering fiance marrying someone else behind her back. Now, sitting alone at a bar in Coronado, California, on December 31, she decides to do something radical...and lets a brooding good-looker take her to bed.

More like a 3.7 than a solid 4, but close enough.

This was a well-written book. The writing was quite suburb and it had wonderful setting details and character descriptions and growth. The story was fluent with characters of fleshed out backgrounds plus a dual romance within the main story. So overall it really was a good story plus had some steamy romance scenes.

However, Not Another New Year's had its setbacks. For one, the main character Hannah was 50 shades of dull . She was beautiful and sma...more

The sequel of the previous Love must mistletoe, which however can be read independently. It happens on an even shorter period of time, about one week, and is also a light read.
I preferred this one to the previous, and would rate this one a full 4 stars.
I really liked the heroine's character, and the way she slowly discovers herself and takes back the confidence that she's lost/never had for many long years. She's undeniably endearing. For once, I had more problem with the hero, whose problem to...more

Sooooooooo much better than Must love mistletoe! Very cute actually.
the focus was hannah but dez got her story too, but she got cheated. Thats actually why the book bumped down to 3 stars. I mean, one day troy wants to kill her the next he loves her. Zero development. Not good writing skills but much improved......in my opinion.

2nd book by Ms Ridgeway, and I'm truly a fan! I picked this up to relieve a little stress from school, Xmas planning & I couldn't put it down! If possible, I liked it better than Bailey & Finn's story. I loved the unfurling relationship btw damaged Tanner& the naive Hannah. I have a soft spot for alphas with a gooey center! The dialogue is realistic, I can relate a lot to Hannah & her hesitancy in living her own life on her own terms.....family is great but at times..... :-). The...more

A 2-in-1 love story! I love those! Every time I switched between couples, I'd think that I'd rather here about the couple I was just reading about... until I turned the page. Hannah is a prim school teacher kind of reeling from the turn her life took and decides to go on a vacation (with a secret ulterior motive, of course). Decides to get crazy drunk since her day has been shot to hell and has (her first) one-night stand. To wake up the next morning and find out - the man her uncle said would b...more

Talk about bad karma, Hannah is having a bit of bad luck, on a much needed vacation to clear her head after being jilted by her fiance, her luggage and purse stolen and then to top it off, the man that she is meeting to show her around Coronado just happens to be ....

You don't want to miss out on this book!!

Dawn ♥ romance
This story started out okay and I did finish but it was so full of useless details, characters thoughts and not a lot of action. Eventually I started skimming all but dialog and never warmed up to the characters. Hannah is on vacation and on New Years Eve decides to be radical when she meets ex-Secret Service agent Tanner.

Fun fluffy romance, takes place in Coronado. Teacher comes on vacation, is mugged in the San Diego airport, goes to the only address she knows, which ends up being a bar in Coronado. Meets the brothers...

2.5 stars...I think I would like this better if I was in a contemporary mood. I've been reading a lot of action/suspense romance and I don't think I devoted the heart capacity needed to really enjoy this. I plan on reading it again in a few months, then see how it goes... Sorry.
Donna Twedt
I thought that this book was refreshing and a fun read. There were several moments when I wanted to go back to San Diego. The only hang up that I had was the Fact that some of the physical descriptions of the characters seemed to change throughout.
A Tasty Read Book Reviews
I borrowed this book from my mother in law, of all people, and loved it!! This was the book that re-launched my love of reading and now I have an extensive collection and have got to read so many wonderful authors. So thank you Ms. Ridgway!!
Laura
This was two romances. Ex-Seal and Secret Service brothers find romance. I liked the story and felt it hit upon some issues that were more than "chick lit" and I felt empathy for both heroines and especially the hero's!
Tressa
I really liked the characters and their relationships. I thought this was a fun and sexy story. I didn't think the ending was the best, but it's probably because I didn't want the story to end.
Patty Presley
I read this book years ago. It was actually one of the first romance books that I'd ever read. It's got mystery and angst and lots of action. Very nice way to ease into reading the genre.
Ngaio
Another quick, good read. I am glad there was this book with the characters from the incident that was also in Must Love Miseltoe. Liked this books subplot with troy and dez too.
Kevin Connery
Decent enough storyline and dialog. The characterization was very good; some of the plot elements were more than a tad unbelievable, but she carried it off well.
CL (www.loveisastateofmind.net)
Another book where I liked the secondary romance more than the primary one. Can't say I was fond of the Hannah/Desiree looking alike plot arc either.
