I don’t think the smile left my face from the moment I opened up the Kindle to start reading A Pinerock Bear Christmas. I enjoy any addition to series that I’ve enjoyed, but I look forward to the Christmas reunions and additions so much. And Zoe Chant never fails to give me great reunion stories from many of her series. So this time of the year I am one very happy reader.
Gloria is setting out to spend Christmas with her brother and his family after dumping her cheating boyfriend and looking for a new start. Only he’s a long way from Georgia and between highway closures and a car that picks the most inconvenient time to die Gloria is now stuck in a small Montana town on Christmas Eve cursing at her car… and about to have the adventure of her lifetime where love is the greatest gift she’ll find this Christmas.
Jaron is one of the bears from the wild clans that Gannon left long ago. Some of those shifters have wanted more interaction with the human world and the life and possibly mates that a larger exposure may grant. So, Jaron is now a deputy at the Pinerock County Sheriff’s department where he’s learning how to function in a human world among friends, bear friends. No one should be alone on Christmas Eve so Jaron has been invited out to the ranch compound that houses his alpha and all the members of the Pinerock County clan. He’s happy for the company, and experiencing a Christmas celebration with people he’s comfortable with – he simply doesn’t know yet that another stranger is about to show up at the ranch as well, and she’s going to be very important to him.
I loved catching up with couples who I have watched find their happy ending and to see where they are today. As usual, the competition between the brothers is fierce in outdoor Christmas decorating, the ladies take it all in stride and rule their mates with a gentle touch, babies have been born, and children wait for Christmas morning… just like most places in the world. In other words, it’s pure chaos, the absolutely delightful, fun kind. Gloria and Jaron are a sweet, young couple just discovering each other and watching them find an uncomplicated happy ending was enjoyable. This was a story that simply warmed my heart, made me happy to catch up with old friends and maybe hope to eventually learn more about the wild clans. A fun experience, a great story and one that I’d definitely recommend. If you want a guaranteed shifter story that will put a smile on your face this season – this one is for you.
