Love to read but not sure which book to read next? There are so many books to choose from that it can be difficult to decide. Read this 5-stars book review of, Her Holiday Family below:
Genre: Inspirational Romance

Star Rating Given: 5-stars
I absolutely LOVED this book! Eileen Pierce was wealthy and spoiled, but she is trying to hide just how far she has fallen from a town that already looks down on her. Can she continue to hide her secret when she is coerced into taking in ten stranded children and their temporary guardian?
Simon Tucker is intrigued by the ice queen that offers them shelter while the caretaker of the ten kids he has been escorting to their new home recovers from her stroke. Even more interesting is the fact that she obviously doesn’t want them in her home, but she opens it to them anyway. He is sure that there must be more here than meets the eye.
The characters in this book were so believable I felt like I was right there with them. I understood what they were thinking and why they did the things they did. That isn’t true of very many books. A lot of the time when I’m reading I keep thinking how stupid the characters are and they really get on my nerves. Griggs characters weren’t like that. Yes, they had their problems, but they were believable, relatable, and worth reading about.
This book did take me a little longer to read than I expected, however it was still a great book to read during the holidays. I kind of wish we had a secret room where we could put up our tree.
I highly recommend this book!
Book Description from Amazon:
THE CHRISTMAS CHILDREN
Reserved widow Eileen Pierce never considered herself the kind of woman who was cut out to be a mother. She wouldn’t know what to do with one child, much less ten. But when handyman Simon Tucker is stranded in town with a group of young orphans at Christmastime, she discovers she can’t just turn them away.
Simon knows there’s more to Eileen than meets the eye. Though his easygoing demeanor immediately clashes with her buttoned-up propriety, Simon’s kindness soon melts Eileen’s stern facade. Simon and the children already upended Eileen’s quiet, orderly life. Will they do the same to her guarded heart?
