Synopsis

Fall in love with Christmas at Castle Mountain Lodge! 

Ever since Ryan Morrison has taken over as Customer Service Manager at the famous Castle Mountain Lodge he’s witnessed the ‘magic of the Lodge’ and couples of all kinds falling in love around him. Is it the backdrop of the majestic mountains? Or maybe just the luxuriously rustic setting? Either way, Ryan’s convinced it won’t ever happen to him. 

For Julie Pitts her number one focus has always been raising sixteen-year-old Shay. Julie would do anything for her daughter, including organizing a special Christmas crafting retreat at Castle Mountain Lodge as a way for them to spend the holidays in the mountains the way her daughter has always wanted. 

Shay has also always wanted her mother to fall in love and when she sees a potential love match between the handsome manager and her mom who is long overdue for some romance in her life, she sets out to give the ‘magic of the Lodge’ a little festive help. After all…what’s more romantic than Christmas at Castle Mountain Lodge?

~A sweet, Contemporary Romance~

    Great read

    Love is in the air again at the magical Castle Mountain Lodge. Although Ryan Morrison has seen many couples fall in love there, he doesn't think it's in the cards for him. That is until Julie Pitts and her matchmaking daughter Shay arrive at the lodge. Ryan is attracted to Julie immediately but can he get her to stop working long enough to notice him??? Great story with very interesting characters! Definitely a great holiday read that I would recommend to everyone.

    A cute fun read

    This was a very cute sweet and at time funny read. Two people not looking for love and one teen who want nothing more than for her mother to find love does her best to push Ryan and Julie together. Shay was a delight from her pushy teen ways to her wonderful delightful wit. This was a wonderful short read that keeps you entertained as the author gives you a wonderful playful read with lots of humor. This is a clean read with a heartwarming plot. I really enjoy how Shay got the ball rolling I found myself laughing out loud at the things she puts into action. The author gives a very well written holiday read she reminds us what Christmas is all about family, love and dreams. She gives you wonderful characters you can relate to as she keeps you entertained. This story is for just about everyone who loves romance that warms your heart and keeps you smiling.

    A Surprise Christmas

    As with the other Castle Mountain Lodge books, this is no exception. All the ones l have read have been a very interesting romance and it keeps you on edge until the very end. Elena has a way of making you feel like you are there at the lodge and are part of the story. You want to shake both of them and let them know that you both feel the same way and this one is no different. Ryan is in love with Julie, but Julie thinks he is only spending time with her because of her daughter. She turned on Ryan and tried to pretend it didn't matter, but it didn't work. She found out she really did care for him, but is it too late? Read Holiday Gifts by Elena Atiken to find out how the story ends. Elena has written a winner again. I got this book in exchange for an honest review. It is a great Christmas love story, but does it end well??

    Sweet return to Castle Mountain

    Holiday Gifts is a sweet novella that returns you to the magical Castle Mountain Lodge for Christmas. I really enjoyed the book because both characters are relatable. Ryan is feeling that life is starting to pass him by and is interested in finding a woman and getting married. Julie has been relying on herself to raise her daughter alone for a long time. She isn't looking for love but finds it when she all but trips over it. Julie was especially relatable because every step in her relationship with Ryan was fraught with anxiety and second-guessing his feelings for her as well as her feelings for him - a very realistic emotion for someone who has been fending on her own for so long. Sweet story with a Christmas theme and a precocious teenager.
