Description

Jaded Army medic Ryan Malone never expected his next mission would bring him back from Afghanistan to tiny Wishful, Mississippi. His great uncle's health is failing and the cantankerous old coot has pushed everyone in the family away. Ryan is their last resort to get Uncle Percy to move into assisted living before he breaks a hip—or something worse. He's looking to get in, get it done, and get back out. That definitely doesn't include taking time out for a sweet-faced waitress with a heart bigger than the Atlantic.

Interior designer Hannah Wheeler is a long way from the high-powered clients of her old Atlanta firm. Despite the fact that she's currently spending her days waiting tables, she's discovered she really enjoys the small-town life she found with her sister. This Christmas season, she's finally ready to introduce Wishful to her true capabilities by using her skills to spread some holiday spirit. But with Ryan and Percy, she's definitely got her work cut out for her.

Will Hannah's evergreen cheer thaw their frosty hearts and remind these two that the most important part of the holidays is family?

    Great feel good story. I grabbed a latte, curled up under a blanket and read this book from cover to cover. I loved how Hannah led her man back into the light and the casserole patrol brought an old man who was giving up back to life. Really enjoying all of the books in this series and that touch of southern hospitality and warmth that keeps popping up. Keep the coming please...

    Kait Nolan’s stories are always filled with love and friendship and A Lot Like Christmas is no exception. Hannah Wheeler is living with her sister in Wishful, MS, while recovering from the car accident that derailed her Atlanta interior design career. Ryan Malone, a medic with the Army’s elite Delta Force, is currently on leave and on a very different mission. At his mother’s request, he’s in town to perform a wellness check on a beloved family connection, his ‘Uncle’ Percy. But Percy isn’t cooperating and Ryan is beyond frustrated when Hannah is sent by a friend of Percy’s to decorate his house for Christmas. As the decorations go up, Percy is reminded of holidays with his beloved late wife Janie. Like a Christmas miracle Percy begins to lose his reclusive and curmudgeonly ways as his home is transformed. And, Ryan begins to fall for kind, sweet, talented Hannah. Going back to Wishful is like visiting old friends -- before you know it the visit is over and you hate to leave. You can only hope you’ll be invited back to Wishful soon! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    ARC for honest review with no compensation received from BookSprout Ryan a Delta Force medic on leave for Christmas, comes to Wishful after a call from his mother to check on his stubborn Uncle Percy who has become a homebody after the death of his wife a few years prior. Fresh off the plane he borrows his buddy’s truck to head to Wishful and breaks down outside of town, walks to town and goes to the diner and meets Hannah a waitress who thinks he is a homeless person. She waits on him and tries to spread holiday cheer but he doesn’t really respond... Hannah a big city interior designer, now a waitress in Wishful recovering from a horrible accident and with her never ending optimism for spreading holiday cheer and the hopes of starting her own interior design business. With the help of a Secret Santa she ends up at Uncle Percy’s to use her skills to decorate his house and who answers the door but Ryan! The magic of Wishful brings these two together in an unusual way and maybe they can help each other to overcome the fears they both are hiding deep inside.

    A Lot Like Christmas by Kait Nolan is a beautifully written story of the romance between Ryan Malone and Hannah Wheeler. Ryan looks homeless when Hannah sees him outside the diner on a cold winter night and brings him in and pays for a coffee and soup. Ryan, a Army medic, whose borrowed truck breaks down outside of the town of Wishful is in town to check on his Uncle and access him whether he is ok to live alone. When they meet again Hannah is decorating his Uncle's home for Christmas as a gift from one of his late wife Uncle's friends. A Lot Like Christmas is romantic and full of unique characters in the wonderful town of Wishful. It is beautiful story of finding love and the Christmas spirit, and one you will thoroughly enjoy reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
