This was a sweet Christmas romance and even though it was nothing new plotwise, it was still very entertaining. Noelle is working as a waitress at a bar, doing her best to earn a living for her and her son, Sam. When a customer puts his big, beefy, hands on her and refuses to take no for an answer, Christian Danser, a local rancher, steps in before Noelle has a chance to diffuse the situation. When a fight ensues, Christian and the customer get thrown out and Noelle gets fired. Desperate and ...more

Whats better than a contemporary western starting out with a cowboy coming to the rescue of a waitress and ending in a bar fight? Fists arent all that flies, as sparks ignite.
But what happens next will have your heart breaking for these two lost souls.
How can Christmas ever be the same? Christian and his daughter Molly lost so much two years ago in a fatal car crash.
Noelle and her son Sammy, are about to become homeless and its a fate Noelle has feared all too often, growing up in the foster

Christmas is usually the happiest time of the year especially for the residents of Whistle Stop. This year the town is going all out with the new development and organizing special activities during the holidays

Unfortunately, Christian Danser hates this time of year since it reminds him of his wife's death. The problem is Molly, his young daughter would love to have a Happy and Merry Christmas but her dad has practically ignored the holidays since her mom died.

Noelle Forrester is used to life

I was so happy to be back visiting Whistle Stop! A Moment at Christmas is book 5 and although you dont have to read the series to enjoy, you really are missing out on a wonderful place to visit. Ms. Faye has created a great town that has some characters that will make you laugh, make you smile, make you crazy, and make you want to move to the town, at least it does for me.

The story starts off with a peak into the very lonely life of Christian Danser, a widower with a little girl. He lives on his

Once again, Ms Faye delights us with a very heartwarming, and touching story. To top it off, its a lovely additional for the upcoming Christmas holiday.
The story centers around Christian Danser and Noelle Forrester. Christian is a widower and a rancher with a sweet six year old named Molly. A child who not only lost her mother 2 years before, but also lost the Christmas celebration, since her Dad refuses to celebrate it. Noelle is a single Mom to Sam, a 4 year old. She loses her job due to

4 1/2 STARS!

A delightful holiday trip back to Whistle Stop, New Mexico! Jennifer Faye weaves a bit of magic every time we step into her next small town spiel. The characters are well developed, the plot is attention grabbing, and there is humor mixed in with angst as we watch this woman try to heal this broken man so his daughter can start to truly have her father whole again. Great story!

Rancher Christian Danser likes organization in his life, and he's convinced that nothing in his life or his

A MOMENT AT CHRISTMAS Book 5 of A Whistle Stop Romance;

A Beautiful and Heartwarming Christmas book filled with laughter, joy, and some sadness. But above all it was so moving.

When Christian met Noelle it was a place where she worked, and he was there for his friends party. He wasnt feeling up to being out. After all he was a widower and single father. He thought he came to her rescue, but not so.

Noelle couldnt believe what happened after the handsome cowboy thought he was helping her. She

I love this series and this book is one of the best! These characters just grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go. While little Molly absolutely stole this story the emotional journey Christian is forced to take will steal your heart. After the loss of his wife rancher Christian Danser has emotionally shut down. Sure he gets up everyday, works the ranch, and provides for his daughter but emotionally he's struggling. He should have known that hiring Noelle for the nanny position would be trouble ...more

Another delightful trip to Whistle Stop written by a very talented author! The story line has emotion, sorrow, indecision and determination. The characters have remarkable interactions as Christian and Noelle fight their growing attraction. Will Santa be able to make Molly and Sammy's wish come true? Great holiday story!

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

Jennifer Faye is finally taking us back to Whistle Stop, New Mexico in A Moment at Christmas and this story will not disappoint you.
Noelle is a single mother in desperate need of a job and Christian is a single father in desperate need of a nanny. As they work together, love for their children and each other will make this Christmas one to remember.
I received an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review

A Moment at Christmas is a fun holiday book full of hope, family, and love. Everything you would want in a Christmas story. This is one of my favorite Whistle Stop books! Take two single parents, one divorced with a four year old son and one a widow with a six year old daughter, throw them together and watch how Jennifer Faye weaves an inspiring story you will definitely want to read.
I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

A beautiful, sweet story - with the Christmas theme that Christmas is the season of HOPE. I loved this book. And I loved the occasional appearances of other Whistle Stop characters and the feeling of community that was still able to be woven into the story of Christian and Noelle. And isn't ever-so-appropriate that the "heroine's" name was Noelle. The Whistle Stop books never fail to make your heart feel lighter. Of course, all of the books written by Jennifer Faye make me feel good.

Wow, if you want to read a great romance and get into the Christmas spirit this is the book you should read first. I love the style of Jennifer's writing of a story it is always heartwarming and you really get yourself involved in the story. This being said her story line in this series Whistle Stop each book is so different but you feel so so good after you get done reading one of the books. This is another "grand slam" for Jennifer!

Christian and Noelle are a fantastic couple. They've both been through circumstances that were out of their control. How they handle their lives and move on, is what makes this book a beautiful, heartwarming story. It was great going back to Whistle Stop and experiencing these characters. Jennifer Faye is an excellent author and I highly recommend this book.

I have read all the Whistle Stop books and I think this is my favorite. It makes you laugh and cry. The story of Molly's bangs was really funny since the same thing happened to my daughter. This is a stand alone book but I would really recommend you read all the books in the series because they are great also.

A MOMENT AT CHRISTMAS was the perfect book to start my Christmas reading. It is a wonderful story of two people who need the magic and hope of the Christmas season. Christian Danser needs a nanny for his daughter, Noelle Forrester needs a job and a place for her and her son. Christian resists everything Noelle tries to do; however, his daughter likes Noelle and wants to remember her Mother and have Christmas again. A miracle is truly needed in Whistle Stop.
