I was honoured to read this book prior to publication following a request from the author, Kat Bellemore. Borrowing Christmas is a beautiful clean romance set in a small town in New Mexico.

The author has penned a short heart-warming and uplifting tale which gets right to the heart of the story quickly and you can feel yourself simply whipped up and taken on a winter wonderland tale of love and romance.

Brilliant book which I read in an afternoon – on the sofa with a few cups of tea and a nice

Borrowing Christmas is the first book to come in the Borrowing Amor series by new author Kat Bellemore. While I'm not sure what trope the rest of the books will be, this one is a Christmas romance. Amor is a small New Mexico town. This town was charming with lovely characters. Makes me wonder who will get a story next.

Sam and Katie.....
Sam is the mayor of Amor. After the previous major died in an accident, Sam felt it was his moral duty to run for the position. It was, in fact,

Katie and Sam. Sam and Katie. Though they couldn't have been further apart, once together...you couldn't imagine them anywhere else.

Katie had a bit of bad luck growing up...okay, A LOT of bad luck, and landed herself in some sticky situations. Problem was a bad cop was pulling the strings and that made breaking free way harder than it should have been. She takes it upon herself to try YET AGAIN to cut the strings he's pulling and lands in what could only be described as paradise...at least to

A really good Christmas romance.

Katie is on the run from a life that is on a one-way road to ending sooner than later. When she is out of choices, she goes to see her friend Daniel for help. Sam is in a slight pickle as mayor of his small town because his event planner eloped without finishing the towns holiday festival with less than a month to Christmas. After her car is towed to his town, he ends up hiring Katie to finish the festival without even checking into her past. From there, it's a

Katie was homeless not a great thing to happen just before Christmas. What is worse she is now also on the run from a dirty cop. With new ID she is off hoping to stay one step ahead of trouble. Then she meets Sam and trouble kind of found her. Yes, this story occurs during Christmas time, but it is not a Christmas romance it is more a suspense drama with a romantic twist. It is really good. What Katie had to go through, her budding relationship with Sam and the threat of Teddy made this a ...more

She is thrown out again just two weeks before Christmas. This time she will not go to the dirty cop but she will run. She does not get far as her car breaks down. He is the first single mayor and so they watch every move he makes. When she appears he hides her. What will happen? Will life be good for them? See what will happen

Borrowing Christmas - This is my first read by this author and I enjoyed the storylines. The characters are interesting, funny and sincere. Many good things happen in this cute, quickly read second chance at starting over and a first for romance. Learning to trust is difficult when coming from a bad background, but buckling down instead of under is most of the battle.

This story is better than I expected. I found this book on Booksprout.co. 4*

This is 1st book I’ve read written by Kat Bellemore; she has done a great job at writing a good book. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Really cute story!

This was a wonderful story with just a little bit of mystery to it. I loved how Katie saw the real loved behind the homeless people and it all turned out to be perfect!

Always fun to see the bad guy get what he deserves. Life is always about choices, but we don't always get to make the ones we want.

What an unusual story, with a unique plot and quirky characters, the author crafts a tale of love, change and acceptance. I will be reading more from Kat Bellemore.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Borrowing Christmas! I had a hard time putting it down and finished it in just a couple of days, as each chapter left me wanting to see what happened next. Even though in some ways you knew what would happen, there were alot of fun, creative twists that kept it fresh. I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys a fun romance with a little more depth.
