This was a lovely story. I really liked the characters and the Scottish setting was fantastic. I only wish there was more development in the relationship. That part of the story happened too fast.

D'awwwe. Very sweet.

Reminds me a bit of J.L. Merrow's stories, which I adore. Likely The Plumber's Mate series.

Cam was very loveable. I like my men just like him--big and brooding-looking.

3.5

A Christmas story that is sweet, tender, melancholic and full of hope with two beautiful and sexy, mature men.

I know Halloween hasn't even passed yet, but I was looking through some of the Christmas/holiday MM releases coming in the next few weeks, and that just put me in the mood for a holiday read.

description

I originally read 'Rest and Be Thankful' in the Comfort and Joy anthology. I enjoyed it a bit more the first time around, but this short is still sweet and full of holiday feels.

I wanted to wrap Cam up and never let go, and I wanted Rob to wrap me up and never let go. Plus, I love the setting of a Scottish

I’ve only discovered Joanna Chambers in the last couple of years and find I can’t get enough of her writing now. Once I start one of her books I need to leave myself enough time and a clear run as I find it difficult to put it down, and this has been the case with everything of hers I’ve read and she never disappoints. There’s something special in her way of writing – an innate kindness and compassion that calls out to me. It says a lot about her writing, that because I feel the need to read eve ...more

4.5 stars

This is the kind of holiday read I love. A melding of sense of community, family, the hope of the season, love, and new beginnings.

And, an enemies-to-lovers trope with a dash of hotness doesn’t hurt at all.

I really like Cameron (Cam). He’s gruff, proud, and fiercely independent. He’s new in the tiny village of Inverbechie in the Scottish countryside. He’s on his last dime, trying to establish his outdoor adventure business in a very tight-knit community. How does he go from outsider t

What a lovely friends to enemies to lovers story. I hope the promise of a new year sends nothing but romance and great sex to Cam and Rob.

Joanna Chambers always delivers. It was nice reading a holiday story that wasn't focused on the holidays more than the characters and plot.

Sure I've read this one before...oh well, a nice little Christmassy/New Year's read from Joanna.

I read this as part of Comfort and Joy.

I really liked the story, but I found the use of apostrophes on every 'round (British colloquial version of 'around') very distracting. These were not used consistently (not used on 'phone, for instance), and I know I'm being pedantic - perhaps the absence of the apostrophes would be just as distracting to US readers. However, I rate on how well a story drags me in and keeps me there, and those little fellas kicked me right back out of it, which is a shame,

something about this story didn't quite work for me. I really felt for Cam, but I felt there was too much telling me about his character, and not enough showing. I liked the resolution of the feud between him, and Rob, but it felt a bit too pat for something that had been brewing for so long. I did appreciate the author's feel for small town life, and politics. It felt very true to my own experiences, and home town, but the story failed to fully captivate my interest. Not bad, but not really goo ...more

The discouragement that Cam feels is very well achieved, same as Rob's muffled sadness.

Read as part of Comfort and Joy Anthology.

This was quite a sad, short and very sweet novella. I really felt sorry for Cam, the way he was dealt with the worse hand in life. Having made redundant at his accountancy job Cam rethinks his life and wants to do what he loves: being in the outdoors. Exited he moves to small town Inverbechie, that he has found memories of from his childhood, but quickly he finds he has become a total outsider with a business that seems to be very seasonal. “Apparently, to exist on the poverty line in a remote v

My 6th X-mas book this month! Even though the MCs didn't get together until towards the end, I still enjoyed the story. Witnessing the softening of their animosity helped me understand the characters better, especially Cam and his predicament. Boy, what a pickle he was in...more like pickles. I felt so, so bad for him. I didn't want the story to end, especially with the surprise craving Cam begged for. We get a brief glimpse of what kind of domestic life they could have together. I want more of ...more

Didn't realized I had already read this, in the Comfort and Joy anthology. Love almost everything Chambers writes, so I reread this anyways. Not my fav of the collection, but still rewarding.

Cute enough for a holiday short story, but the ending was a little too pat--felt unearned, I guess, by the rest of the story.

3.25 stars. The story was cute enough, but somehow I couldn't really connect with either of the two main characters.

3.5 stars. Short and sweet romance.
Chris, the Dalek King
Cam’s life is not going well, at all. His boiler had bit the dust, his business has flown south for the winter, and pretty much everyone in Inverbechie dislikes him–-including the sexy café owner who he had a blazing row with moths ago, which led to the town shunning him. And he’s broke; so very, very broke. No, life is most definitely not going well. He can only hope that come midnight on New Year’s Eve, he’ll figure out a way to make this new year a better one. Because he really doesn’t fancy ...more
