A BRAMBLE HOUSE CHRISTMAS #6
A BRAMBLE HOUSE CHRISTMASC J CARMICHAEL
Finn Knightly a.k.a. Finn Conrad wants to know why his recently deceased father left his nurse fifty thousand dollars after knowing her a mere six weeks. So he travels to Bramble House B&B in Marietta, Montana to find answers.
But Willa Fairchild is not the conniving woman he expects to find. Before he knows it, Willa-and her six-year-old son Scout-are stealing his heart. And that’s before he finds out Scout’s secret and the real reason this Christmas is so important.
Willa Fairchild and her son Scout were on
their way from Bozeman airport in a snowstorm.
Which for people who live in Montana or snow country it was easy but for
someone from Arizona not so much.
The thing she didn’t know is she was being
followed by the son of the patient that arranged this whole Christmas adventure getaway. Finn (Knightly) Conrad. You see Willa is an RN and took care of Ben,
Finn’s father, the last six weeks of his life.
Or at least she was one of three nurses.
In the will his father left the other two nurses $5000.00 but left Willa
$50,000.00. His ex-wife who was already
bitter about the divorce and his three daughters want answers as to why he did
that? Finn’s mother is forcing the issue
and him to find out the answers. So,
hence he is following Willa.
So, to shut them up he agrees on sight he
doesn’t believe she could do anything they may have thought at first. He knows he has to follow through and follows
her to the B & B in Marietta. Finn
had researched the Bramble House B & B in Marietta, Montana and found out
it had made the national spotlight. Last
year for the country music artist, John Urban, he announced on TV that he
planned to go there for Christmas. So he
couldn’t figure out why this place?
Maybe she had family in town?
Friends? His next thought was, “Well,
with the money his father left her she could afford it.” Then he felt bad.
Finn in a lot of ways was glad someone
kind and who cared about his father was there with him at the end. Yet, he still had family who were counting on
him to get answers. When he meets the
owners he is taken aback by their open, kind, and cheerfulness. Yet, it feels right. He seems to be fighting with all the emotions
including grief. The next morning when he
comes down to the dining room he gets a cup of coffee and ponders his first
meeting with Scout and Willa in passing to his room. Scout was a happy cheerful boy of 6 years and
Willa was polite but you could see sadness and a guarding behind her eyes. As he’s staring out he sees Scout and Willa
rolling extra-large snowballs for a snowman.
Willa takes selfies of them with the snowman and still there is a
When the two come in breakfast is served
when Aunt Mable the original owner of the house notices the ring on her finger
being the exact same as one in a tin picture Eliza had on one of the Christmas
trees at the B & B. One of their
family members is wearing it. She ask to
see it. As soon as Finn sees it he is
filled with anger. He calms himself and
then asks, “Where did you get that?” She
explains how she cared for a sweet patient who was alone when he passed. They had become good friends. How one day he was holding the ring and she
mentioned how beautiful it was. He told
the story of how he had given it to his ex-wife and she never liked it and
neither did his daughters. So, he just
gave it to her and asked her to wear it often and to remember him. Finn choked back emotion then said, “Are you
in the habit in receiving expensive gifts from your patients?” Causing Willa’s spine to straighten and to be
curt with him saying, “NO!”
This was an interesting book of secrets
revealed, history found, and love that is unfolded in a town of Christmas cheer
and loving people. Can Willa keep her secret
to Scout? Can Finn find what he needs or
will it be what he never knew he wanted?
Will Scout find the adventure of a lifetime as well as a reason to
believe again along with his mom? Read
to find out. I give this 5 stars. Provided by netgalley.com.
