Good Books Christmas Stranger During the month of November, I searched through my shelves for all Christmas themed novels I had. To my surprise, I found I had over 40. ( Not all were romances) So, I picked out some of the shorter ones , so I could squeeze in as many as possible between my regular reading list. This book has only 188 pages. It is a Silhouette Desire romance written by Joan Hohl and published in 1989. Although this is an older book, it wasn't all that dated, which can be the case with contemporary romances written during that time.This one had a little bit of a different plot. A man during the mid 1800's is shot in an ambush and wakes up in "present day". His doctor, Virginia, an independent woman with no desire for marriage or even an steady relationship with a man, takes an interest in Matt. Despite his having no ID and having no idea about modern technology, Virginia is drawn to him.Since he has no place to go, Virginia allows him to recover at her home. Doing a little research she finds that Matt really did live in the 1800's. They don't know what happened to cause him to skip through time. But, there is a danger of his not being able to stay.Time travel romances are hit and miss with me. This one was a little different since the guy came into the future from Ft. Worth, Texas. I don't really know why this one didn't appeal to me so much. I'm not sure if it was the time travel thing, or the age of the book, or that I just didn't feel like the chemistry was all that great. Either way, it was an OK read. Overall a C-

  2. I normally love Christmas stories, and I tried to love this one but I just couldn t get into it Both Virginia and Hawk are terribly one dimensional and the plot didn t existMy problems no villian sorry, no, a bad guy from the past who shots Hawk and then is NEVER seen from again and never impacts the storyline Hawk and Virginia s insta love for no reason We are supposed to believe that an intelligent, independant doctor would invite a virtual stranger to live with her based mostly on her desire [...]


  3. I m not normally a huge fan of time travel romance, but this one kinda worked I think it s because it s about someone from the past ending up in the current period although by now, it s set almost 25 years ago I m getting old.And the whole thing was dealt with kinda realistically I loved MAtt s thoughts about everything strange he saw he thought Virginia was a hooker because she wore make up for instance I liked how he gobbled up information like it was nothing, and loved simple things like shoe [...]
