A Willow Creek Christmas by Lily Graison

His recluse days end when he finds a mother and two children poaching in an old line shack on his property. Looks like his life will never be the same.

WOW! I loved it . Great one to read for Christmas! I will remember this one for a while . ( Keri turned to look at him and nodded. " I think they`re beautiful." The drawing of her flashed in her mind`s eye. " All of them." His gaze touched every feature of her face, the look in his eyes so warm, it felt like a soft caress. " Not nearly as beautiful as the real thing." Love Noah! Awesome. ...more

2.5
This wasn't a bad read but not my normal low angst type. I did like some parts and the kids were cute. The problems were mostly the issues I had with the heroine and the hero. They both had moments I was like ugh but I can say it kept my attention so not bad read but not one I would want to re-read.

Oh this one had me on the edge of the couch. Plus I stayed up late into the night to finish it.
This story takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride. One that you do not want to get off from.
Keri is running. Noah is hiding. Both were hurt and trying to over come their pasts. He thought he would always want to be alone. That was until she showed up with her little ones. He could not turn his back away. They crawled into a spot into his heart and he could not get them out.

He disappears into rural Montana and lives the life of a hermit. One snowy winter night he comes across a young family sheltering the weather in one of his out buildings.

Omg, Lily warned me to have tissues ready and she wasn't kidding!!! This series just keeps you hooked and I think this one may be the best of the six so far. Absolutely loved it.

This book had an unusual but well enjoyed premises. I had a hard time putting the book down and hated for it to end.

I like the story and the fact that it's Christmas themed but too much "gazing" going on. Him gazing at her. Her gazing at him, etc. I lost count how many times the word gaze was used. Never found out what happened to her brother. Not my most favorite book by far.

I absolutely loved this book. I read it in two nights and could NOT put it down. As we can expect from Lily Graison, this book is swoon-worthy. The romance just sweeps over you and takes you away. Noah is a loner and a recluse injured from the war with a house outside of town. In addition, he has a cabin in the woods. To his surprise he finds a woman with two small children in his cabin. Outraged he kicks them out, only to find himself guilt-ridden and bringing them back to his house. I found my ...more

I was given this book by the Author Lily Graison for a Honest Review.

It was awesome and I loved it.

A Willow Creek Christmas is a stand alone novel but its also part of a series. So many of the people in this book are from previous books. It's good to hear about them, even if its just a little bit.

Keri Hilam is a widow with two young children (Aaron and Sophie). She is desperate to escape her abusive brother in law and find her brother in California. She leaves her home in the middle of the nigh

I just loved this book!

It is a story that's been told hundreds of time, hundreds of ways: A damsel in distress is thrown together with a rather hostile hermit type man who very grudgingly helps her out but, over time... romance blooms.

So, the story line is predictable. And it's one that I usually enjoy. But this time even more so than usual. The writing was good, but probably not spectacular. (There were a few typos.) The plot moved along at a good clip but nothing very earth shattering happene

A Willowcreek Christmas.
A Willowcreek series book 6.

Another fantastic read written by a truly amazing author. She has the ability to grab you right from the beginning and keep you turning pages. If there is someone looking for a great series, this one is it! You will not be disappointed.

The story takes place in our favorite little town of Willowcreek. That being said we get to catch up a little bit with some of our favorite characters from previous stories, without it dragging on and moving righ

This is definitely a re-readable Christmas story I will pull out again every year. This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Graison, but it won’t be the last! Not only were all the elements of a grand romance in this story (Noah, a wounded hero, and Keri, a feisty heroine down on her luck and equally wounded), but the depth of this author’s description of their plights and roads to recovery, their fragile hopes for a better tomorrow, and their blossoming attraction for each other made this a one- ...more

It has become an annual tradition for me to read a cheesy holiday romance each Christmas season, and A Willow Creek Christmas was this year's selection. The emotions were well written, and the sex was not too over the top for me. The characters were likable, if a bit predictable. But Lily Graison is in dire need of an editor. I know I am anal about apostrophes, but I bet there were at least 100 instances of plurals with apostrophes and possessives without. Homonyms were another problem: bare ins ...more

I just discovered this author and read this book in one sitting. I really enjoyed her writing style and she did a great job of conveying the feeling of what it must have been like to live back then, and the desperation a widowed mother of two young children must have felt. The situation that threw her together with the hero was both heartbreaking and realistic. The reality is that she and her children would not have survived the brutal cold if they hadn't been taken in. The relationship with the ...more

Lily Graison nailed it again!!!! A Willow Creek Christmas was absolutely amazing! I could not read it fast enough. You would get to a part in the book where you think you know what is going to happen and then all of a sudden there's a twist. As always, she was very descriptive when telling about the characters so much so that you can visually see the characters and feel what they too are feeling. I have and will always recommend her books to everyone I know that loves to read as much as I do. I ...more

*4.5 Thoroughly enjoyed this story!! I fell in love with Noah, Keri, Sophie Ann and Aaron right from the start and their story pulled at my heartstrings. Perfect book for the holidays. This was my first book by Ms Graison, and even though it's #6 in the series, I never once felt like I was missing anything. This book has it all - great story arc, dual POV's, engaging characters, excellent dialogue and steamy sexy times.

Lily Graison has done it again with A Willow Creek Christmas. One of the best books I have read all year. Fabulous character development and a great plot. It kept me captivated from page one right up to the very end. Very touching story. I highly recommend it.

ARC received from author in exchange for my honest review.

Whoowhee!

Awesome story, love those hardheaded characters! I was getting a little worried right there at the end with Robert, but thank goodness Noah came to his senses. Now on to the next book!!! Thank you Lily for sharing this book. Love it.

Super-basic writing and rather crudely drawn love scenes cost this one star for me, but at the core is a sweet holiday romance.
