    One thought on “Christmas Comes to Main Street”

    1. Full disclosure, I am not a Christmas person. I hate the stupid songs that play incessantly on the radio, the decorations that 88% of the time look ridiculous, and of course I dread the family dinners. But while reading this book I was in such a Christmas mood and just had a genuinly happy time learning all about these characters. You're probably asking yourself why I even read a holiday book if I don't like the holiday's but I fell in love with this town and didn't want to miss out on Kara find [...]

    4. Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.: amzn/2cXJwIPA small town baker with a love for Christmas and a big city visitor who looks down on all things festive. Ah yes. That's quite the duo. Christmas Comes to Main Street was a Christmasy good time and utterly delicious!Alright so the quick of it is that Nate is in town to spend Christmas with his elderly aunt then heading back to his real life that is blessedly Christmas free. But then he runs--quite literally-- into Kara. And crushes her c [...]

    5. Christmas Comes to Main Street is the final book in the Briar Creek series by Olivia Miles which really bums me out a little. From the very beginning I fell in love with this series, it’s made me laugh and bring me to tears but each story is one I will cherish and re-read over and over again. Miles not only developed amazing characters but a town that stood out and had me wanting to move to Briar Creek. Nate is in Briar Creek to spend time with his Aunt but as soon as the holidays are over he [...]

    6. This is my first Olivia Miles book and I have to say that it was quite the surprise. This is a small town Christmas romance book that is full of all of the craziness that a small town offers.I like how hard working Kara is and although I could see her struggling with how much work it is and being a one woman show, I could see the determination and will to continue to improve her dream. Not only does she run a store front bakery alone, she seems to be the sole baker that supplies the town with ev [...]

    7. InkvotarySo, the time for this challenge is over and I am now allowed to post my review.This was my first book written by the author. And for sure not the last. Good, I might not be over the moon with this, but it was very entertaining and great for a cozy afternoon read. This book was a wonderful Christmas read. But why on earth had the author to write every few pages about why Kara was still single and why Nate had a huge problem with Christmas? I don´t mind getting told details from the past [...]

    8. "Weihnachten in Briar Creek" ist der letzte Band einer wundervollen Reihe, die im kleinen Örtchen Briar Creek spielt.

Und auch bei diesem wurde ich nicht wirklich enttäuscht.Olivia Miles entführt einen als Leser erneut in einer Welt, in der Gemeinschaftsgefühl und Freundschaft ganz oben angesiedelt ist und vermischt diese "Traumwelt" mit traumhaft weihnachtlichem Flair.Im Mittelpunkt des Gesche [...]

    9. Much to my surprise this year, the Christmas spirit hit me very early so I have been happily inhaling all the Christmas-themed books I can fit into my schedule and I was really looking forward to this from the teasers about Kara in the previous book.

After a history of being unable to stick with anything, the time has come for her to show Briar Creek that she's found someth [...]

    12. ARC REVIEW This is a new one for me, I haven't read Olivia Miles before and with this being book 5 of the Briar Creek series I thought I would get lost in the characters and the setting but nope it can be read as a standalone. The main focus was on the two main characters and what was happening with them with a few side notes from another character which is setting up for her own book. This was an absolutely adorable book. I love books like this because it plays out in my head like a Hallmark Ch [...]

    16. I really liked Nate he gave me warm fuzzies, “nope,” Nate said, his dark eyes intensifying their hold on hers. “I don’t. Life’s too short. If you’re going to do something, go all in or don’t bother.” This book was great, it was heart-warming, sweet and put you in the holiday mood.

    18. In "Christmas Comes to Main Street" which I won through Giveaways Olivia Miles blends the flavor of peppermint and cinnamon, Christmas cookies and holiday celebrations with a romance that begins when Nate Griffin bumps into Kara Hastings making her late for her delivery to Main Street Bed and Breakfast. Having sunk all her inheritance into the Sugar and Spice Bakery, Kara is determined to make it a success and is irritated by the city slicker who not only isn't easily charmed by the holiday fes [...]

    19.

Ihr Neffe Nate kommt sie über die Feiertage besuchen. Leider ist er ein absoluter Weihnachtsmuffel, was für ihn das Leben in Briar Creek nicht einfach macht, da alles hier weihnachtlich ist: ein Schneemann-Bau-Wettbewerb, ein Winterfest und ein Weihnachtshaus-Wettbewerb, den Ka [...]

    20. Very sweet and romantic. Also, the perfect book to read in December to get you in the holiday spirit. I didn’t like how the plot in the first half of the book hinged so much on miscommunication, but I guess it did give the story some conflict. I liked the details of Kara running a bakery, and how excited the town of Briar Creek gets about Christmas (reminds me of Stars Hollow!).

    22. openbooksociety/article/chReview:WOW! Really that is all I have to say. Okay…for a book review, I know I will need to say more. ☺I knew right from the beginning that I would like the book. You ask why? Well, the cover of course. I am a sucker for Christmas romance novels, but this cover was just simple elegance. Sometimes the understated is all that is needed. And as I read the story, this became abundantly clear. The story was easy to read, with a good flow, superb characters and a resoluti [...]

    23. I feel for Nate at the beginning. He is lonely and he is stuck being haunted with his past. His past defined him in so many ways. It made him determined to rise above his circumstances and make a better life for himself and his parents. It also made him fear that at anytime everything could be taken from him. He worked more so he could feel safe and secure but no matter how much he had saved he never felt safe or secure. He had moments from his childhood that hurt his views on Christmas and he h [...]

    25. It’s that time again, when the snow covered Christmas novels start to hit the Kindle… and I love it!This is the final book in the Briar Creek series, but it could be read as a stand alone (but why would you want to miss the goings on in this town?)Since I started this series, Kara Hastings book is the one I have been waiting for.
