In her latest entry in The Hardman Holidays, The Christmas Ring, the town welcomes two newcomers, Victoria Carter and Trace Travers.
Needing to flee the gossip which has plagued her and her family, Victoria accepts an invitation from her brother and his family to start a new chapter in her life. What she doesn’t expect, want or need is another man in her

A great addition to the Hardman Holidays series

4.5 stars

I especially enjoy the Hardman Holidays series by Shanna Hatfield. It could be the time period, or the characters, or the fact that they have a little more adventure in them...

The Christmas Ring is a great addition to this series. Victoria has an uncanny ability to notice and remember details which became clear when she was able to give such great descriptions of the outlaws who robbed the stagecoach she was on. This came in handy when she

Fun activities await everyone, from outdoor ice skating, Christmas plays to taffy pulls. This book as others in the series pulls a reader into a ...more

I was really excited to hear there was another Hardman Christmas romance and The Christmas Ring did not disappoint. Shanna Hatfield knows how to write great stories and this one was a page turner that had me impatiently itching to get to the end.
I really enjoyed the interplay between Victoria and Trace. I liked the way Trace was able to really see who Victoria was and worked to restore her confidence and belief in herself. I empathised with Trace and his fear of heights and his muttering

The Christmas Ring

Victoria met Bub when he was part of the gang robbing stage coach, something about him intrigued her. She met Trace when she came into town after the robbery. She thought she was just a little crazy for having enjoyable thoughts about both men. Would she be able to pick correctly, or would she even need to choose?

The Christmas Ring( Hardman Holidays Book 8)

This series is one of my favorites. It was fun catching up with all the different characters, while reading about Victoria and Trace's evolving romance. I never guessed who Trace went undercover for. I recommend this story and series.

Another Wonderful Christmas!

Finished the Christmas ring at last. I decided to read the first Hardman Holidays book again. I got carried away and read each one again. Each book adds to the citizens of Hardman another adventure. Cannot wait for more adventures.

The Hardman Lineman

As always,a beautiful written story taking place at the turn of the century in Oregon. The characters are believable, the story is clean yet has enough action that it comes a very long way of becoming boring.

Lovely Christmas Romance

I thoroughly enjoyed this Christmas romance, including the insights into the technology of 1903. I also enjoyed reading the conflict caused by Trace's double life. Great secondary characters and an interesting plot. A delightful story.

A ring

Holidays and family and a tale of adventure. An entertaining tale about telephones and children and two people trying to figure out how they could possibly be falling in love. Well done.

A good clean romance about a second chance at real love for Victoria after being deceived by her first husband and a first love for Trace because of his busy job as undercover Marshall.
It is a well developed story with wonderful and complete characters from previous stories. I really enjoyed it.
