Cute story about two people who think they'll have to spend Christmas alone until a chance encounter at a local café (involving spilled coffee and a lilac blouse) and then another chance encounter on craigslist bring them together. What is supposed to be a fake date for Christmas turns into something more, with Brenda realising she wants more from Alex than she bargained for, and Alex doing everything he can to break down the barriers around Brenda's heart.

Really liked the idea of basing their

An excellent read! I enjoyed author Rose Francis's writing style! I read half the book in one day! Hooray for hunks!
This was a sweet, heartfelt story that I really enjoyed. As an author, Rose Francis has shown definite growth in her work and this story is a prime example. Brenda and Alex have both been in unfulfilling relationships that ended disastrously. Brenda is hesitant to enter any kind of permanent relationship with Alex, even though her heart tells her otherwise. She just needs his company for a Christmas dinner as her "pretend boyfriend" so she doesn't look like the lonely, desperate ex girlfriend of ...more
A Christmas Miracle was well-written, and I genuinely liked Alex and Brenda. Even though I don't care for insta-love plots, their sometimes awkward chemistry worked, and helped to overcome it.
What messed up the story for me was the ease in which Brenda forgave her half-sister...I don't think I know of any woman - during the loving holiday season or not - who would forgive such a transgression of 'stealing' another woman's man from under her nose. True - you can't 'have' what was never really you

This was my first book by Rose Francis. I really enjoyed her writing style. I rate this book as 3 1/2 stars. I found A Christmas Miracle to be very heart-warming and romantic. The novels shows the sorrow of deception and heartbreak, finding new love and forgiveness. The one thing I didn't like - it drove me crazy that the big betrayal was never really addressed.

I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good holiday romance, and am looking forward to trying other Rose Francis novels.
A Miracle Indeed

The story of Alex and Brenda was emotional and intense. It was well written in many regards but skipped over other parts.

This was my first book by Rose Francis. I was not enthralled by the lead characters as I normally find myself when I am reading. The heroine annoyed me with the constant pity parties she would indulge in and the advance and retreat with the hero.

Despite my complaints, for the most part, I did enjoy the story.
