Christmas in Quincy (The Edens #0.5) by Devney Perry

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry comes an Eden series prequel.

Cleo Hillcrest would rather cancel Christmas than endure another one of her father’s pretentious holiday parties, making small talk with his rich colleagues and her stepmother’s shallow friends. She’s leaving home to spend three peaceful and quiet days in Quincy, Montana, trading gifts and grandeur for room service and slippers.

But she should have expected her family to thwart her plans. The minute she finishes unpacking her suitcase at the quaint Eloise Inn, Austin Myles knocks on her room door.

As the head of her father’s security team, Austin’s been ordered to drag Cleo back to California. Only when she refuses to leave, he has no choice but to stay. After a Christmas in Quincy, everything between them is about to change.

5 out of 5 stars

Christmas in Quincy was so fun, sweet, and entertaining! I love reading Devney Perry, I always feel like I'm coming home to these familiar places with really likable and relatable characters. This was just what I needed!

I loved Austin and Cleo so much and the unrequited love they had going on and the bickering that happened from it. I loved that attraction they had for each other and why they tried to keep it in check. I was filled with so much anticipation waiting for them to get together. It was so fantastic watching their feelings grow and their guards come down as that attraction built. I couldn’t get enough.

This was a really good introduction for the Edens, giving the reader a glimpse of who there might be stories about. I'm already liking grumpy Knox and am looking forward to the series. It was a nice intro about the town, leaving you excited for more.

This story was warm and cozy and inviting, and had the best build and slow burn. It was filled with heart and sweetness mixed with just a touch of antagonism. I loved the descriptions and details. It was a fast-paced read giving me everything I needed. Loved this!
