Loved this!!!!

My favorite book of the series.

Tobias was so thoughtful, yet tortured and unwilling to forgive himself for his past deeds and Harper opens her heart to him and gives him hope to believe that he is worthy of a happy life. I was left wanting more.

CHRISTMAS IN SILVER SPRINGS (Silver Springs Book 6) by Brenda Novak is a full-length Christmas contemporary romance. The story is not a light and fluffy Christmas romance, but a powerful story of finding love after betrayal, forgiveness and redemption. This addition to the series, like all the books in this series, can be easily read as a standalone.

After thirteen long years in prison, a man gets to celebrate the Christmas holidays in freedom for the first time since he was a teenager. A woman comes to town to heal a broken heart after her husband of many years lets his rockstar fame put his family aside. I was captivated and eager to see how things turned out for this pair and try a new to me author all in one.

Christmas in Silver Springs is the sixth book in the Silver Springs series by Brenda Novak. The main characters are Tobias and Harper. While each book in the series is a stand-alone, I believe that if you read/have read Unforgettable You (book 5 in the series) before you pick this one you will have a better understanding of Tobias as a character and what drives him to act and think as he does. Harper has been divorced for less than a year and she is still trying to get used to her new life. When ...more

I am always happy to come back to Silver Springs . There is, however, an overall theme of people making some bad choices or being in bad situations and having to live with the consequences. The school is a key part of helping the very young be in a better place and have improved chances in the future. Their

FINAL DECISION: This is a book about rebuilding. Both Tobias and Harper are starting new lives. I found their struggle emotionally satisfying although I really didn't like that Tobias kept his secret for so long. That was a bit annoying even though I understood his character's motivation. I just think that they needed more time to process the truth so I docked the book a little.

THE STORY: Tobias Richardson has just been released from prison after serving a long sentence for shooting someone when

2.5 stars

I don't really know what to say about this novel, other than I didn't connect with anything in this one. Which made me sad, as I was really looking forward to finally getting Tobias' story. I didn't find anything here original, it was like some names were changed away, and the tension was very similar to the tension in other Silver Springs novels.

Christmas in Silver Springs was everything you could wish for in a holiday-themed story–and everything wonderful I would expect from Brenda Novak. Full of healing, redemption, triumph and love, this romance will surely warm your heart.

Since the first book I picked up by Brenda Novak, I’ve always thought she has a clear, genuine writing voice that focuses equally on the characters and emotions without losing anything in the plot. That

Another wonderful story by Brenda Novak. I could hardly put this books down long enough to eat, get dressed or do anything! Tobias broke my heart with all that had happened to him, but I was so glad that his family and friends rallied around him. Harper was between a rock and a hard place trying to decide what was right and wrong for her and her two girls, as well as her attraction to Tobias and dealing with her rock star ex. Silver Springs is another wonderful fictional place that I love to ...more

4 star review of Christmas in Silver Springs (Silver Springs #6) by Brenda Novak

I love any story that is centred around Christmas; it’s a time for family and friends to get together, celebrate and reflect.

This was a fun, at times heart wrenching read and one I thoroughly enjoyed. I liked Brenda Novak’s style of writing and felt as though I was a part of the magic of Silver Springs.

I really liked Elle Devlin and Tobias Richardson they were easy to relate to and the secondary characters were

Another outstanding book in the Silver Springs series!

Silver Springs always seems to be a town of hope and redemption. Belief in the goodness of mankind is rampant here. Forgiveness for past misdeeds is usually the norm. Add a recently divorced mother with 2 kids and one ex-con and the mixture is volatile. Tobias and Harper both need healing. The story is told with humor and understanding. This is one of Brenda Novak's best books. You will enjoy the story!

Having your rock star husband ask you for a divorce is awful. Harper Devlin slaved to make ends meet while Axel was trying to get himself noticed in the wild and wooly, rock and roll world. Once he was a star, he didn't need Harper and their children. Harper is in Silver Springs to spend some time with her sister, and try to heal her heart. The divorce from her one and only will be final in a few days.

Tobias Richardson, has been spending his time in Silver Springs getting his feet under himself

Even broken crayons still color!
When Tobias sets eyes on Elle he knows instantly there's not only an attraction but something much deeper- PAIN!
Her hurt is wearing on her sleeve so he does what most men would in this situation he sends her a 'rose' in hopes of capturing her attention.
It was a small gesture yet large in spirit and his spirit is ready to sore.
You see he knows pain all too well after serving time as an ex-con for a crime committed as a teen.
Not just any crime but one that changed

Harper has been divorced from rock star Axel Devlin for a year. It will be final very soon. This past year has not been easy for Harper and her two daughters. She tried so hard to make her marriage work but there was no pleasing Axel. She needed to keep building him up telling him he could do it. She loved him so much that this divorce has just about broken her. Thinking a change of scenery may help, she temporarily moved from Colorado to Silver Springs and moved in with her sister's family.

This is book 6 in the Silver Springs series and it features Tobias and Harper. It does my heart good to know Tobias is getting his heart wrenching story told. He made a mistake by experimenting with drugs when he was 17. That mistake cost him the next 13 years of his life. Finally out of prison and making a fresh start Tobias sees the most breathtaking woman ever and she looks so sad. That’s the beginning of their story and it’s a rough, emotional roller coaster after that. I think even Piper ...more

I received an ARC of Christimas in Silver Springs from NetGalley and the publisher and this is my fair on honest review.

This was another incredible story by Brenda Novak, I have read over 50 of her books and I amazed at how wonderful her books are. I think I have a favorite, and then another book comes along and it takes the place for a short while. There is so much chemistry between Harper and Tobias, yet can you keep secrets and hope to make any relationship work. I really disliked Carl in
Michelle Lindo-Rice
I am a fan of Brenda Novak's books. I love how she crafts such flawed characters and make you fall in love with them. Tobias needs a second chance and though he has a supportive family, he can't forgive himself for his past action. He doesn't feel he deserves love until he meets Harper and feels a connection from first sight. Harper is a divorcee who feels she is in love with her ex-husband, who is a rock star. She is drawn to Tobias' caring nature.
The dynamics of this story wouldn't have worked

The ultimate in feel good romance! CHRISTMAS IN SILVER SPRINGS is book six in Brenda Novak's Silver Springs series and brings us the story of Tobias, a reformed bad boy who is trying to start his life anew after surviving his prison sentence, and Harper, the soon to be ex-wife of rock royalty in a heartwarming take on a second chance at love story.

If you've been following along with this series, you will already be very familiar with Tobias and his story. It was really touching to get to watch

As Harper has discovered, fame and fortune isn't the most important thing in life. Tobias was a simple man and didn't have much to offer, however Harper couldn't get enough of him. Since coming to Silver Springs to help get over her broken marriage, Harper hasn't even begun to move on until she met Tobias. Even though he didn't have much to offer monetarily Tobias was a wonderful, tender, caring man. He tried many times to tell Harper about his past but couldn't find the right words. When she ...more

This is my first Brenda Novak book and it definitely will not be my last. This book is part of a series and I feel the need to read them all after reading this one.

Christmas stories are my favorite. Tobias won my heart from the very beginning and Harper balances him out perfectly. This book is an emotional rollercoaster but once I started, I could not put it down. This is a must-read this holiday season!

With all of Novak's Silver Springs novels, you get much more than a romance. You get a heartfelt, well-crafted story with real characters in tough but realistic situation that will touch readers on multiple levels. From traumatic pasts and difficulty navigating family dynamics, to messy but passionate love stories. I believe a reader doesn't have to actually read these books in sequence in order to enjoy all of these books but it does add a familiar coming home experience. Visiting with old ...more

I love this series but I must say that Tobias is my favorite. He became such a good guy even after thirteen years in prison. I'm so happy that he found Harper. My only complaint is that I want to know more.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a
