From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. He wasn't a Charleston native, not with that adorable Yankee accent. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry--just a few no-strings dates while he was in town.

Macy Frost takes her professional services very seriously--how could she not, when she's rumored to be a direct descendant of Cupid? Tech entrepreneur Deacon says he's just trying to make his social-climbing aunt happy by being seen out and about with a few prominent beauties, but Macy insists she can make her client fall in love...for real. And Deacon can't help but think she might be right. As charming as the palmetto trees and magnificent harbor may be, it's the beautiful, breath-of-fresh-air Macy who's become Deacon's favorite part of the scenery. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart?


For me there is nothing better then a holiday romance book. It's my favorite time of the year so it would make sense that I would love to read them, right? So when they start coming out I have to say that I gobble them up! 

When I saw this new series by Kramer I knew I had to try it. The Story sounded good and I loved both the title and cover! It had all that attracts me to a story. 

After reading it all I can say is that for me it was just okay. I didn't love nor did I hate it. Maybe a solid 2.5. I really wanted to like it more. As I read it I kept thinking, "this would have made such a good series to read," but it didn't. At least it didn't for me. 

I don't know, maybe I'll try it again at some other time. I can't even tell you what I really didn't care for. It was almost boring to read, like a slow drip. I know that sounds horrible but at the moment I don't have any other words to use. 

I think my biggest problem was that I only liked the characters a little. Good characters can lift up bad writing but so-so characters will draw good writing down. I couldn't connect nor believe in them. It's not like they are horrible, I just didn't....

I think this is one of those books that you'd have to try for yourself and see how you feel about it. Again, I wish I could put in words more of how I felt about it but I just had very little feelings about it one way or another. 

If you've read Christmas at Two Love Lane I really would like to hear what you thought of it. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

  1. I wanted to try this, but a 2.5 rating in my opinion is a pass. I've a coupon so maybe I'll try it anyways, especially since I love her historicals

  3. I was on the fence on this one and still not sure if I will read it. especially since it sounds like it wasn't what you were expecting. I do love Kieran Kramer but have only read her historical romances.
