A Christmas Wedding

A Review by Lexi Connor

Tracy Wolff knows how to suck a reader in with the first pages of her novel, A Christmas Wedding. Jesse Rainwater, the world’s best horse trainer, hands his wife divorce papers. On their daughter’s wedding day. Triple H Ranch owner Desiree has always tackled trouble with an iron fist, but Jesse’s bombshell makes her realize this may be a problem she can’t fix. However, Desiree refuses to give up on her marriage, on the only man she’s ever loved, without a fight.

A Christmas Wedding is a fantastic story that immediately piqued my curiosity about how the author would tell the tale. Right away Ms. Wolff made me care about Desiree and Jesse, and then she pulled me on an emotional roller coaster straight through to the end of the book. I didn’t read it all in one sitting, but each day when I got home from work, I looked forward to curling up on the couch and uncovering the next layer of Jesse and Desiree’s story. I laughed, cried and sighed as I followed their journey and watched them revive their hope for an everlasting love.

I admit I’m much more of a suspense reader and the thought of reading about people involved in horse racing at first gave me pause, but wow! The time I spent reading this book was well worth it. Tracy Wolff is definitely an author I’ll read again.

I love husband/wife stories and not the marriage of convenience sort. I'm not exactly sure why, but there's something that grabs me about two people who were once in love and now find themselves learning new things about each other.

I just started reading this one this morning. Like you, I got sucked in right from the start. I can't wait for everyone to see what I've known for a while now: That Tracy is an amazing writer. Someday, I'll be saying I knew her "when"! LOL!

Cat, this really is worth your time. It's not like the average romance, that's for sure.

Lori, Tracy and I talked tonight about her January release and oh, I can't wait for that one!
