The Christmas Secret by Jeannie Watt Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): Trapped in a cabin in a raging blizzard with the one man on Earth who could turn her world upside down…this Christmas holiday was not playing out at all the way Lil Reynolds had planned. Not even close. When Lil’s former fiancé chose to marry on Christmas Eve – the day he and Lil had planned to marry one year ago – she knew she had to get out of town for the holidays. Heading to the isolated family cabin seemed like the perfect solution, until the blizzard came…and a man showed up at her door i the heart of the storm. Casey Lanigan. Her ex-fiancé’s brother. A man with whom she shared a secret summer romance many years ago. A man who’d betrayed her trust. A man who, despite everything, still made her heart beat a little harder… so much for a Lanigan-free holiday.

I have given The Christmas Secret by Jeannie Watt four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A very delightful, wintery quick read which gave me all of the cosy cabin vibes I wanted from this book. This is a story about second chances at love (one of my favourite tropes!), should Lil risk it all and give Casey a second chance or throw away what could be love altogether?

I really enjoyed this romance book, between two characters: Lil and Casey, who had a previous summer romance years ago before Lil met Curtis. Casey’s brother. However, as we find out in the first few pages of the book, Curtis and Lil were to be wed but unfortunately it didn’t go to plan and their relationship was over pretty quickly from that moment.

I loved the concept of this story, the jittery feelings I got from the scenes that took place between Lil and Casey, I couldn’t get enough of those two together! I would love to read more about their relationship together. I’m a complete sucker for second chance romances, it’s one of those tropes which always manages to punch me right in the feels, especially when the author is very good at writing. I could picture the imagery described so vividly, minus the blizzard I would love to take a trip to Lil’s cabin one day!

I hope to check out more of Jeannie Watt’s books in the future. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy short and sweet second chance romance novels.
