This was a quick little novella. Insta love, second chance romance. I loved the cabin setting and getting snowed in together. Perfect setting to fall back into love! Cute and fun.

I was so excited to read this new book by Laramie Briscoe. A second chance romance that takes place during Christmas. Lucas and Holly were high school sweethearts. Holly came home after her fiancé leaves her at the altar. Lucas is running his own business and really struggling after losing his dad. The book is pretty short, so everything happens very quickly. I didn't have a great emotional connection with the character's, but they were written well for the length of the book. I'm still looking ...more

Lucas and Holly broke up right after graduation. He stayed home, while she went off looking, what she thought was a better life. But said life has a way of putting things into perspective and boy did life do that for Holly. She was left at the olter, lost her job and had to return home.

Lucas is still trying to pick up the pieces since his dad died. He's struggling and looking for a sign that everything will be OK. And his sign was Holly. They reconnect and quite quickly realize that there's no

Geez, Holly has gone through the fire in a very short length of time (like in a day), and I had one of those days (not in the same way but just as awful) this past week so I really felt for her. She's all tucked away in her hometown at a cozy cabin when she comes face to face with her past, Lucas. See, after they graduated, they broke up (her doing), and she left him in her rearview mirror. So yeah, Lucas is a bit gun shy understandably when they come face to face, but with what he's going throu ...more

This second chance holiday romance is a quick light read. Holly has had it rough the last few days, she was left at the altar and lost her job. She returns home and decides to spend a few days at her friend’s cabin. Lucas has taken over his dad’s construction business. With a storm approaching he was asked to winterize and check on a friend’s cabin.

I enjoyed the forced proximity of the snowstorm forcing Lucas to spend the night with Holly in the cabin. It led to the two talking about

Short and sweet. A lovely holiday snack that hit the right buttons. Not overly spicy, but more than a Hallmark movie! Perfect to escape with for an hour or so.

I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a really cute, short, hot and sweet second chance romance in small town during the holidays. I would have liked this story to be a bit longer, but I did enjoy its fast pace and that it was a short novella.

Holly couldn't wait to leave her small town growing up. But she left the people she loved behind namely her boyfriend, Lucas who had family obligations and could not go. Now years later
RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
SPICE: 🔥🔥.5

This was a fun insta-love (well, somewhat) short read.

Holly came home to Blizzard Bluff to get away from a horrible series of life events. Who can blame her when she's jilted at the altar and lost her job to boot? Seeking refuge at her family's cabin, she did not expect to run into Lucas, her ex-boyfriend from high school and the man she's left firmly in the past.

If you're looking for a quick-paced steamy holiday read about second chances, this is a great pick. There is an

4 Star Review The Cabin At Candy Cane Lane by Laramie Briscoe

What’s not to love, it’s the most magical time of the year. A time to come together with family and friends to celebrate. Laramie Briscoe is a new author to me and I cannot understand how I have not come across this author before.

I love stories set around the holidays, add in that it’s in a small town called Blizzard Bluff (I just adore the name) and it was a win/win for me. I fell hard and fast for Holly and Lucas, both separately an

The Cabin at Candy Cane Lane is a short story, a quick read, about a second chance romance.
Holly is being left at the altar, that’s when she decides to go back to Blizzard Buff, her hometown. The hometown she left to pursue her dreams, but she also left her first love behind.
Now she’s staying at the cabin, and guess who knocks on her door. Yes, Lucas, her first love. He’s there to check the cabin before the snowstorm hits, but the storm beats him to it and he has to stay at the cabin as well.

The Cabin at Candy Cane Lane is a quick read, but it's not without the feels. I don't want to give too much away, especially since it's such a quick read, so suffice it to say that both Holly and Lucas have things to work through. They've both suffered a loss - different kinds but still a loss - and they're really at different places in the journey of moving on. That doesn't mean they can't find comfort in each other. The romance is blissfully low angst, which I always appreciate in a Christmas ...more

Who knew that the worst moments in life could lead to the best future possible? Holly and Lucas have been apart for years, but somehow fate knew that now is the time for them. And neither of them is sure how the other feels at first, but this feeling of RIGHTNESS just can’t be ignored. Can they have it all now that they’re older and wiser?

Holly made me so sad at first. And then angry. Because how dare her ex be such a slime? And for her to see the truth that was deliberately and willfully hidden

The Cabin at Candy Cane Lane by Laramie Briscoe is a heartwarming love story. Perfect for the holidays!

Holly wanted to marry and have a wonderful life in the big city... but first her fiancée left her standing at the altar and then she lost her job. Perfect, right?!
So packing her bags to go back to Blizzard Bluff is the only way to deal with all that.
Never would she have thought to get a second chance as well...

This novella had an amazing storyline with great characters. Holly is facing one misfortune after another and the only solution is to get back home to Blizzard Bluff which she left behind eight years ago. Lucas is swamped with his own problems. Last thing he expected to find at work was the one that got away.

It's a sweet read about second chance and getting to know yourself, trying to find what they actually wanted in life. Getting to know their issues made it easy to connect to both Lucas and

Insta-love second chance
The Cabin at Candy Cane Lane by Laramie Briscoe is a sweet and steamy second chance romance that feels like insta-love with the promise of Christmas magic that rekindles to spark between Lucas and Holly.
The plot demonstrates how these two are not just getting a second chance at love, but also realizing dreams and making a together that they both want. Unfortunately it took a whole lot of heartbreak, for each of them in their own ways for it to be possible.

She's staying in a friend's cabin and is expecting someone to come look at the pipes before a storm hits. She's not expecting that person to be Lucas, her high school sweetheart. There's still something between them. Can they start over?
