The Christmas Catch by Ginny Baird

eBook Novella
I managed to finish reading a holiday novella today along with a short story I've already reviewed earlier! I read The Christmas Catch by Ginny BairdThe Christmas Catch is approximately 104 pages in length and the first book in the Holiday Brides Series. 

As a side note, I was able to download a free copy of The Christmas Catch from Amazon to my Kindle, but this in no way affects the thoughts expressed in my review as follows below. 

Okay, The Christmas Catch is predictable as far as holiday romance reads go... A nice, tidy, romance novella with a very happy ending! The story is good clean fun with well developed characters and a decent storyline. Overall, I enjoyed this easy, breezy fun holiday read despite it being so predictable. My favorite characters were Tyler and Mason the dog!

Book/story description per Amazon's website:
Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected...

Since the death of her military husband two years ago, single mom Christine White has struggled to get by. By throwing herself into her work as a Chicago copywriter, she's managed to keep food on the table but has gradually lost sight of what really matters, like building a bond with her four-year-old son. When Christine's best friend insists she spend Christmas in Vermont so she can get her life in order, Christine initially resists. Little does she know she's in for a memorable holiday that will reignite her faith and reawaken her heart.

Bachelor professor John Steadman has given up on finding the right one. Spending time with his friends while keeping up with his job seems satisfying enough. Then one day close to Christmas, a beautiful woman from Chicago nearly runs him off the road during a snowstorm. What's more, she's got a kid in her car. It's only natural that John and his trusty golden retriever want to help drag them out of a ditch and steer them toward their destination. What John doesn't expect is that soon he'll be hoping Christine and her son will be staying in Vermont - for more than just a little while.
I'm giving The Christmas Catch a rating of 6.5 stars out of 10 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
