I enjoy reading JL Jarvis Holiday House novels.

This one was fun, but not as enjoyable as some of the others.

Chloe Burke inherited a secluded mountain cabin from her great-aunt and decided to move there definitely and upon arriving there she meet her new neighbour , Luke Abbot and while he helped her with something they began to fall in love with each other, but first they have to solve some problems with his line of work so they can be happy together. A sweet story that makes you warm inside, I loved to read how they got their way to a happy ending.

The Holiday Hideaway - A delightful, sweet romance set in plenty of snow and Christmas-style magic with two lovable characters and their interesting storylines.

I had a problem with complete strangers being expected to bare their souls on the first meet or date, else they are considered liars and untrustworthy. Relationships take time to build trust and respect and to share secrets. I guess this type of relationship is considered old-fashioned and time consuming.

Other than my pet peeve, I

Well this was exactly what I thought it would be. A girl moves away to a remote cabin and falls in love with the neighbor who has some secrets of his own. It wasn’t a terrible read, but yeah it was mushy and didn’t have a lot of character growth or anything. But it did have its cute moments. So if you are looking for a cutesy, easy Christmasy read, this book is for you!

Chloe Burke, an unemployed artist, has just finished a temp job when a letter arrives from a lawyer saying that her estranged great-aunt Eleanor died and left Chloe a secluded mountain cabin and a modest inheritance! She has no idea why she would do that, nor did her mother. But this is an opportunity for her to perfect her art and become a real professional artist in the quiet of the beautiful mountains! Her aunt’s studio was top-of-the-line!

When her neighbor, Luke Abbot, stepped out of his

This is my first book from this author. I loved the cover and it looked like a nice story. I was thinking it will probably be a sappy love story, boy was I wrong! Chloe is the main character. She is a strong girl with a good head on her shoulders. All will be tested when she inherits her estranged aunts home/art studio. It is a cabin that has only a few neighbors...and one is Luke. A quiet recluse that lives right across the street. Just after she moves in to her new home, she cant wait to ...more

Oh Boy! Chloe really, really loves Christmas and when she unexpectedly inherits a secluded mountain cabin she wastes no time in decorating it for the holidays. New neighbour Luke would rather avoid this outpouring of holiday spirit but finds himself drawn in regardless. Luke has secrets and Chloe wants to find out more about him. Although the incredibly fast speed at which these two characters swap confidences is highly unrealistic this is a good book if you can look past that. It is a nice, ...more

The Holiday Hideaway was such a charming little romance. There is something about a small town Christmas that just hits you right in the feels. I could just imagine myself in a cozy little cabin adorned with twinkling lights, amidst the softly falling snow. My idea of heaven! Luke and Chloe get off to a rough start, but they soon realize just how much they are attracted to each other. There are definitely some obstacles for them to overcome in their relationship, but never fear, you will be left ...more

Luke's desire to keep his life private makes Chloe's imagination go into over drive and not in a good way. A fun story about love, trust and Christmas spirit.

It might be love, yet it is really covert

When she inherited her cabin and a modest estate for upkeep, she had not spoken with her aunt in several years. A somewhat puzzling gift from one artist to another.

She found a neighbor in that cozy hideaway who would steal her heart away.

Can this hidden hero and his secrets hold onto her and their affection, or will his past take her heart as victim?

Intense and involved romance

This is a super cute and fun holiday read. Right from the start, you get a feel for the holiday and how much Chloe, the main character loves it. The plot is really nice and the book itself is well-written and kept me engaged the whole time. I didn't want to put it down! I definitely recommend giving this a go if you're looking for a holiday romance to wrap up you nice and warm.

Chloe has inherited her aunt's house in the mountains and realizes her dream of becoming a professional artist may come true. After meeting her new neighbor she realizes the attraction is there but also mystery surrounding him. A quick fun read with holiday magic, sweet romance, characters you'll fall in love with and of course all it set during the holidays.

I found this to be an interesting story and liked that I ended up making assumptions as the story went just like Chloe! I thought the characters were developed and likeable and the story unfolded well (even when it took a turn I'd not expected). Personally I would have liked either a bit more between the last chapter and the epilogue or a longer epilogue as I had questions!

I really enjoyed this story. It has a background of Christmas along with romance and a little mystery. I loved Luke and Chloe. They had a connection from the start but secrets got in their way. A quick read but definitely worth it.

The Holiday Hideaway: A Holiday House Novel is a heartwarming holiday romance. I am a sucker for Christmas stories and this one has me hooked. Chloe and Luke are likable characters and the story is well written, with secrets, emotions, Christmas lights, and a sweet romance.

This is the 1st book I've read written by J.L. Jarvis; 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.

I loved this book. It was such an easy read. When Chloe Burke inherited home, she did not know that her life would change so much. She met her neighbor, Luke Abbot, and her world changed forever. She knew he was keeping things from her, but she did not know how much and why.

Chloe inherits her Aunts home relishing the idea of decorating her own home for Christmas. Her new neighbor is a sexy mysterious man that is not an all out for the holidays guy. The story is interesting but the ending left me with a lot of questions. It has a HFN feel.
