Review: Wrapped Up in Christmas Hope by Janice Lynn

This was a wonderful and heartfelt Christmas read. My emotions were pulled all over the place by this novel! It is the third book in a series and I had listened to the first book last month. I had not read book two and had no problem jumping right into this story. The author did a good job of making these books able to stand alone.

Morgan and Andrew were exactly wrong for each other. Or that was what they both kept telling themselves. But their hearts definitely didn’t get that same message and even though they both resisted, love grew between them.

I loved Morgan’s son, Grayson, and especially Andrew’s reaction to him. Grayson really looked up to the firefighter and Andrew was so kind to him, recognizing what a wonderful child he was. My emotions ran high in this story and hurt right along with Morgan and Andrew as they both tried to navigate a love that seemed impossible.

I wished there was an epilogue or a little more of a drawn out ending. The book finished a little abruptly for me and I hope that we readers may see Morgan, Andrew, and Grayson in a future novel.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


He’s willing to risk his life to save others.
Is she willing to risk her heart on him?

Morgan’s late husband was a daredevil…and now she’s a widowed single mom. All she wants now is to set up a stable life for herself and her son in the small town of Pine Hill, Kentucky.

Andrew’s a firefighter who thrives on the rush of saving others. His secret dream is to become a smokejumper and fight raging wildfires across the country. But it’ll mean leaving his hometown and the people who rely on him.

Morgan and Andrew are drawn together as they both volunteer to make quilts for veterans at the local quilt shop. Morgan’s son looks up to Andrew, and Morgan can’t help but notice how good Andrew is with him. Meanwhile, Andrew’s torn between his ambition and his growing attraction to Morgan. They both have choices to make about their future…and about each other.
