Holiday in Stone Creek: A Stone Creek Christmas\At Home in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller

A Stone Creek Christmas

Stone Creek veterinarian Olivia O'Ballivan communicates easily with animals, but men are another story. Especially rugged architect-turned-rancher Tanner Quinn. Olivia's uncanny bond with his daughter Sophie's pony has him questioning her sanity, while she wonders if he's not just a drugstore cowboy. Then twelve-year-old Sophie conspires with Olivia to get Tanner into the spirit of Christmas. But will a holiday miracle transform the globe-trotting Tanner into a rancher—and family man—for all seasons?

At Home In Stone Creek

Everyone in Ashley O'Ballivan's life is marrying and starting families—except her. But why bother dating when no one can compare to Jack McCall, the man who left her heartbroken years ago? Now he's back in town —and maybe he isn't who she thinks he is.

While recovering from a dangerous mission for the DEA, security expert Jack rents a room in Ashley's bed-and-breakfast. For both their sakes, he tries to keep his distance, though neither can deny the growing spark between them. But when his past catches up with him, he'll have to leave again…just as he realizes where he's always belonged —in Stone Creek

Review for A Stone Creek Christmas

The first story is the best in my opinion. I loved Tanner and Olivia and his daughter Sophie also. Tanner is doing his best for Sophie he just doesn't realize what he's doing is the wrong thing until Olivia appears in his life. Olivia has a special gift and being a vet is her life until she meets Tanner and Sophie they show her what it means to be alive. I really liked this story it was fun and heart warming. It is the first Christmas book that had a Santa sub plot going on that added to the book. Olivia is the kind of woman you want as a friend and Tanner is the kind of man you just want.

Review for At Home In Stone Creek

A little of this couples story was told in the first book which was both good and bad to me. I say good because you got some of their back story and bad because when they talk about their past it doesn't match with what was mentioned in the first story. A example would be in the first book they say they split up because he cheated on her and then in this book it's for a whole different reason and never mention the waitress he cheat with. When you get to this story it's been two years since the first. I didn't care for this at all you missed Ashley forgiving Jack which takes away from the story to me. I felt like I read half the story and missed all the good parts. I just didn't feel invested in them ending up together or not.
