"Cozy!" her grandma called in a loud whisper. "I'm in the kitchen. Hurry!" Cozy frowned, and her heart leapt as worry consumed her for a moment. Yet as she hurried to the kitchen to find her grandma kneeling at the window that faced the new neighbor's yard and peering out with a pair of binoculars, she exhaled a sigh of relief. "Grandma! You're still spying on him?" she gi ...more

I'm pretty sure this is My FAVORITE E-book ever. It was won over by the kissing scenes...delish! Oh and the Wolfish man, Christmas light paradise scenes and the cracked candle votives. Need to try the almonds!

(12/13) I really LOVE this story!!! Such a cute, holiday story without any stress.

*(12/11) I did it! I re-read this during the holidays and it was every bit as fun and sweet as the first time.

* (7/11) A sweet holiday romance. Marcia weaves a truly romantic tale (times two!) in this story. Cozy Robbins is such a sweet, old-fashioned girl and Jesse is such a manly old-fashioned guy. What a perfect match! I love the little tidbits thrown in--orange almond punch, mulled apple cider, walnut ornaments

It almost feels blasphemous to give a Marcia book only three stars, but I prefer her historical romances. The endearing cheese just seems to work better when the setting is not contemporary. However, this will put a smile on your face if you're looking for a sweet, clean romance to encourage some Christmas cheer.

Thanks Marcia - You did it again!

This was the perfect book to read on Christmas afternoon. I started it 3 weeks ago when it was released but have had no time to read since then. Finishing Take A Walk With Me was first on my list of things to do this afternoon.

I loved this book just as I've loved everything Marcia Lynn McClure has written. A wonderful holiday romance. Can't wait until this gets turned into a full length book. Such fun characters in this sweet romance.

I think I need to find rec

6/19/13 - Just a wonderful, romantic story with a hot guy. What more could you ask for?

So cute, and romantic. I just wished instead of like 90 some odd pages it would have been 190.

And I wished it was December and I was reading it in front of a fire with my Christmas tree twinkling in the room. I'll have to re-read it during the holdiays.

Moral Note: Passionate kisses, language (heck, dang, a$$, and a couple cut off swear words)

Oh my gosh! Marcia definitely is the queen of kissing! This book definitely made me salivate, in more ways than one. This was such a fun, light-hearted, holiday book. It made me all warm and fuzzy and in the mood to snuggle in front of a fire. Thanks for another great book Marcia!

I read this tonight as I sat on my couch with my warm corn bags in front of my lit Christmas tree snuggled up in a blanket with hot apple cider. Such a FABULOUS holiday romance...I thoroughly enjoyed my evening...every last page of it. :)
I loved this book! Jessie is perfect in looks and his actions, quite the guy! Cozy is great to fun, smart,and sweet! Their relationship was fun to watch unfold. Just what I needed at this time of year,great story!

“Grandma?” Cozy called as she closed the front door behind her. She inhaled a deep breath—bathing in the warm, inviting scent of banana nut bread baking in the oven. “Grandma? Are you in here?”
“Cozy!” her grandma called in a loud whisper. “I’m in the kitchen. Hurry!”
Cozy frowned—her heart leapt as worry consumed her for a moment. Yet, as she hurried to the kitchen to find her grandma kneeling at the window that faced the new neighbors yard, and peering out with a pair of binoculars, she exhaled
Reading this book was like someone telling you how they met their spouse. I liked it. I would really like to purchase one of the
little walnut ornaments, they sounded adorable.
I love how Marcia always talks about funny little things. I loved the quote about how, "No women should ever give up her Barbies,
not completely."
This made me think of my sister Karen. Also, I think it is really strange how they changed how Barbie
looked because they didn't want little girls obsessing with Barbies weight

I just rereaed this for Swoon Fest, and I think I liked it even better my second time around. Take a Walk with Me really put me in the Christmas mood. I was playing my Christmas music (and it's not even Halloween yet). It also gave me an idea of what to cook for dinner, meatloaf and mashed potatoes, so it was invaluable ;).
Really, it was a cute story. I love Cozy and Jesse. I love the scene where he teaches her this is kissing, this is making out. It makes me laugh every time. A light, fun, holi

November 2011: Cute, conflict-free romance.

December 2010: This was a fun holiday read. I can picture curling up with some hot chocolate and reading this over the holidays. Anyway, both couples are cute, and it was just a sweet story. I would love to try the almond recipe and buy a walnut ornament!!

You know I always love books my Marcia, so it is no secret that I loved this one as well. This book has not one, but two budding romances to follow...and as usual, lots of good kissing ;) Mix in Thanksgiving, Christmas lights and long walks in the cool Autumn air and you have a cute story.

I love it, as I love all her books. But as with all (or at least most) her ebooks, I really wish I could proof read them before they come out. All those little errors distract me from the story, but I still love them anyway.

I especially loved the holiday feel of this book :)

When I rate Marcia's books I rate them against themselves. The other ones that she has written. As this was not my favorite it was not bad. I usually am not partial to her modern day romances.

Sweet, fun, and of course a great love story. Reminds me of my grandma.

I enjoyed this more the second time again. It was charming and cute and just a simply fun read.

This title makes the book even better some how! I loved it! It is true what Marcia says about our society today! It's a good thing my husband still opens doors for me!!

Super cute and fun holiday book. (Good to read anytime of year) Quick easy read. I loved it except for the old people kissing - yuck! Haha. :)

I love Marcia McClure's stories. Where women are treated with grace and respect and the men are masculine. I love best of all the statements Marcia included in this contemporary romance about society trying to change those identities and it not being implied with the timeline.
I loved the side romance involved with the grandparents. It was another element that makes Marcia's books so great.
Thankyou Marcia for your stories that inspire and depict a relationship with love, respect, and a start to s

What a sweet fun story to read. I was charmed as always by my favorite author of all time! Love the Christmas theme! Gets to me every time! And I love to read books like this not at Christmas time. I cherish it ever so much more! The words "Take a walk with me" will never be the same either! Wish I had a hunky hero who would say that to me! Lucky Cozy. Happy sigh. :)

Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Marcia Lynn McClure grew up influenced by the reminiscent stories of rugged, rural Colorado farm life fascinatingly recounted to her by her parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts…tales of runaway buckboards, mule-drawn plows and dust pneumonia; verbalized images of stream-flooded meadows, frozen over in winter, where a child could peer through the crystal clear ic ...more
