Lots of Beautiful People. Lots of HEA. Then again, why else would someone read a romance? :) ( )

This is the second book in the Drake Sister series and it is also a novella. I will say this Ms. Feehan can pack quite a story in a few pages. Again there is a very nice love story. I enjoyed the way that Matt had an open mind and believed in Kate. Kate needed someone like Matt to protect her and take care of her. We also meet Jackson for the first time in this story. There are also the rest of the sisters that didn't show up in the first story and we see more of Jonas. Ms. Feehan also brings in a nasty spirit that is determined to ruin Christmas for the town of Sea Haven. There is lots of action and suspense throughout the story. This is of course Ms. Feehan's signature to all her stories and she is very good at it. I like this story very much and I look forward to reading the next book. ( )

Loved Loved Loved Loved (ok you get the picture) this book! I think Christine did a wonderful job of mixing Christmas/Romance/Paranormal/Caring/Family into a book that you did not want to put down until you were done. This was about the 2nd sister Kate who has the ability to calm people by talking to them and also the ability to travel to the shadow world. Her romance is one that has been in the making since she was 15 and though they have known each other forever this is no easy ride. You get caught up on all her sisters and you finally get to glimpse a little of each of their personalities. It was a great book! ( )

Book description
Bestselling novelist Kate Drake is one of seven sisters gifted with amazing powers of witchcraft. Returning home in time for her northern California town's annual Christmas pageant, Kate catches the spirit of the season and decides to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down historic mill. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a local contractor, doesn't mind working in the undeniably eerie house -- not if it means getting closer to Kate. There's something about the quiet, sensual woman that powerfully attracts him.

When an earthquake cracks the mill's foundation and reveals a burial crypt, Kate senses that a centuries-old evil has been unleashed--and that it's coming after her. Though Matt vows to guard her from dusk till dawn, Kate knows she will have to summon all of her and her sisters' powers to battle the darkness threatening to destroy both Christmas and the gift of soul-searing passion her hometown hero wants her to keep forever....
