I enjoyed Yates' "Copper Ridge" series -- and I am happy to find out that there will be more books coming next year -- so I welcomed this Christmas novella with open arms. I didn't remember whether Holly and Ryan made appearance in the novel, though, but I liked the idea of foster siblings. Heck, I wanted to read more romance stories that started in foster care.

Both Holly and Ryan didn't have a good childhood before they became foster kids. Ryan came from an abusive family while Holly's mother n

Yates shows readers another side of Copper Ridge with this Christmas novella. At the same time, she shows how relationships aren’t easy. They take work, but are worth the reward. Through this all, Yates brings Copper Ridge to life in a vivid way, giving readers access to the lives of her characters.

I liked the character development in the past and present, as well as how past perceptions tie into today’s actions and reactions. It gave me a complete and complex view of the main characters withou
I really like the Copper Ridge series, so I knew was going to get something sweet and mostly fluffy.

Holly and Ryan were interesting. I loved how they were so different in their personality, but had similar backgrounds. The little bit of banter was fun and I adored the grand-ish gesture at the end. I definitely would have loved more from these two, even just another chapter or an epilogue.

Overall, a super quick read for a holiday season.

I've been in a Oregon cowboy/holiday mood, so decided it was the perfect time to *finally* get to this Copper Ridge novella. It perfectly hit the spot!

Ryan and Holly have known each other for years, ever since they shared a set of foster parents. Though their time with the family didn't overlap a whole lot, Margie and Dan (the foster parents) have always made an effort to keep their "kids" a part of their lives and Ryan and Holly both still live in Copper Ridge. They've been a part of each other

"There were a few things Holly Fulton knew for certain. The first was that Ryan Masters would not be looking forward to Christmas. The second was that she needed him if she was going to pull off her plan for a perfect holiday party. And the third was that if she was approaching the metaphorical badger in his metaphorical den, she needed to bring bait. In this instance, bait was takeout cheeseburgers and curly fries from Ace's Bar."

I’ve been wanting to try Maisey Yates’ romances for awhile now. Mostly because I’ve heard good things, but also because she just has the best book covers. The novella, A Copper Ridge Christmas, seemed like a perfect way to check out Yates’ writing style. While I did have some issues with A Copper Ridge Christmas, I can definitely say, I want to read more of Yates’ books.

The premise behind A Copper Ridge Christmas is that Holly Fulton wants to throw a Christmas Party for the foster parents that h

Review posted on Got Fiction?

I really like this series. In this novella, we meet Ryan and Holly, who were foster siblings. Holly wants to throw their foster parents a Christmas party, but she needs Ryan’s help. Ryan who she’s had a crush on for years, but was her foster brother at one point so he’s off limits…right?

Ryan for his part, is a big, hermity, grinch. He lives on his boat, and rarely interacts with the outside world. Until Holly makes him. He knows this party means a lot to her, and it

Holly and Ryan are Foster siblings. This year Holly plans to throw her foster parents a surprise Christmas party as a thank you and she has asked Ryan to help.

Both Holly and Ryan had crushes on one another but knew they couldn't do anything about it or it might wreck the family dynamics. With Christmas just weeks away these two get closer and they find out this will be the best Christmas after all.

If you are looking for a cute quick Christmas read I highly suggest getting know Ryan and Holly.

This was a cute and steamy read and I just wish it were longer. I'm a sucker for Maisy Yates and Copper Ridge and there was something so undeniably right with Ryan and Holly being together, that I wanted more time with them. I wanted to read more about their personal growth, their pasts (together and separate) and I wanted to get to know Margi and Dan and Elizabeth.

But that's not how novella's work.

With that in mind, I give this a 3.8 because I was invested, intrigued and rooting for Holly and

Holly is looking to throw a christmas party for her foster parents who had made christmas special for her. With the help of an old foster sibling she'll get things done. But things start to heat up for the two the longer they work together. Lines will be crossed and boundaries will be tested for the two.

I loved this fun quick and steamy. Great way to heat things things up for the holidays that are quickly coming along. I loved this book. I loved that for a short book this book did come with some

Holly said some pretty unforgivable things to Ryan, and that really frustrated me. But overall this wasn't bad. Not great, either.

A Copper Ridge Christmas is the bookend novella for the first series focused around the Garrett family with in the larger series involving other Copper Ridge residents. We were introduced briefly to the heroine Holly as the wedding coordinator for Eli and Sadie’s wedding in Bad News Cowboy. Our hero is Ryan a fisherman by trade who spent a few months in the same foster home of the Travers (who own the farm market that Jake from Shoulda Been a Cowboy stole from and Kate Garrett worked at) with Ho ...more

Great Christmas romance

Yates has written the ultimate Christmas romance.

The characters and their dialogue make this book. They are snarky and dynamic. They are funny and broken. The story is well written and well delivered.

I recommend this book to fans of the genre.

Can't go wrong with Ms. Yates or Copper Ridge. Holley feels like she is not lovable and Ruan feels like he is unworthy of love. But their foster parents show them that they are both great people. Holly's parents will regret sending her away one day. So glad they ended up in same foster home.

Our Rating:

As much as I try to avoid novellas, I couldn’t pass up a book from the Copper Ridge series, and while it was just under a hundred pages in length, it almost felt like a full story.

Holly’s rather attached to holidays, and since her former foster parents will be away until Christmas, she wants to be sure they come home to all the decorations, snacks, and guests they’d usually have planned. But she can’t do it on her own, and the one person whose help she needs isn’t exactly known for h

If you've never read Maisey Yates' Copper Ridge series, you could probably start with A Copper Ridge Christmas, the second novella in the series and book 3.4 according to Amazon. How do they calculate that? Anyway, it was my third Copper Ridge book, but I've been reading them all out of order and it hasn't really seemed to matter.

In it, foster-siblings Ryan and Holly plan a Christmas party for their foster parents. Initially this seemed like it might be creepy to me, but Ryan is several years o

I’m totally ecstatic that Maisey Yates’ Copper Ridge series extends beyond the Garrett family—although I did expect that it would. As much as I love Eli, Connor, and Kate, there were just so many more characters I wanted to learn about, and it’s a yuletide present all on its own knowi

A good Christmas story always gets me. Usually I’m disappointed when such stories are not “Christmasy” enough. In this case, although Christmas was a central point but, the overall tone didn’t smack of Christmas to me. I still loved it!

The chemistry between Ryan and Holly (I love when the characters in Christmas books have Christmasy names!) is off the charts. Holly is inexperienced in a lot of ways, but she has a spirit that can’t be tamped down. She knows what she wants and once she d

This was a pretty cute, quick Christmas story. There were moments, I wasn’t quite sure about Ryan and Holly because of the way they talked to each other, but then I realized that was more about their dynamic as foster family, then about their potential relationship. Ryan was definitely the best part of the story though. I really understood where he was coming from and why he was reluctant to fall in love. I felt bad for Holly’s past, but considering the fact that she was the one pursuing Ryan, I ...more

Another great read by Maisey Yates. How do you mend broken people? The secret you can't. It's about letting go of the past to have a future and perhaps with one you have always loved from a distance. The distant dark brooding man who had deep wounds. By the woman who never felt good enough to be loved. It is Christmas time and Holly wanted to fix up a Christmas party as a thank you to the couple who had taken in an abandon child. So she was going to drag in Ryan Masters to help who was also take ...more
