Wonderfully Wintery Wonderland

Winter Wonderland (Minnesota Christmas, #3)Winter Wonderland by Heidi Cullinan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Heidi, the cover of this book had my pulse racing before I even opened the cover and now I kind of wish it was Christmas. That is if we can keep the snow off sidewalks and roads. Thanks.

This was the third book in Heidi’s series, Minnesota Christmas which began with Let It Snow. While I have yet to read the second book in this series the third book was very good (and I think would work well as a stand alone read) maybe even as much as the first one which I really liked. And yes Winter Wonderland made me cry and yes, I may have blushed once or twice over the hugging, kissing and sexy stuff and now I’m blushing again writing that bit of info but that's all okay and frankly why I read.

And no, I can’t say bears are my thing (or maybe they will be now... hmm) but I wouldn’t kick one off my couch for getting Christmas cookie crumbs everywhere either. In fact I may look into a few more bear type book characters because Heidi makes them sound so delicious.

I loved the character portrayals and was glad to see the male nurse, Kyle, and his bear, Paul, get a wonderful (that word again) HEA. Kyle’s family members were such a great support to Kyle and Paul. Kyle’s awesome twin, Linda Kay, was so loving and funny and Kyle’s parents were so supportive and... well then there was Paul’s family which helped to balance things with their somewhat homophobic (but maybe just scared and unsure) views of their son, Paul.

Hopefully Paul’s family will settle down in time perhaps in Minnesota Christmas part 4? I can only hope especially if their granddaughter does turn out to be lesbian (or not) and/or she is, at least, trying to accept her Uncle Paul more than the rest of this sad family.

For fans of fuzzy warm feelings (and if the idea of stroking a nice furry chest appeals to you or just reading about it) this is a book you will enjoy reading.
