Publisher's Summary

Opposites attract and sparks fly in the delightful small town of Christmas Creek.
Holly Jolly lives for Christmas. It's the only time of the year, as far as she's concerned.
Gordon Gills doesn't need a reason to hate the holiday season. He doesn't see the point.
Gordon returns to the mansion he inherited and finds Holly making a mess with her Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, his great-aunt's will stipulates that he must make merry every Christmas if he wants to keep his inheritance.
Holly is determined to infect the grouchy Gordon with every dose of Christmas cheer she can muster and show him what Christmas is really about.
Will Gordon prevail and turn Holly into a Grinch, or will a sprinkling of Christmas magic show Gordon that there's no fighting love, especially when it's wrapped up in a gorgeous redheaded package of jolly holly?

Holly Jolly elf meets Grinch Gordon

Any additional comments?

This is such a cute story of Holly Jolly and Gordon Gills. Each of the chapters has a line from Deck the Halls which is a unique way to title the chapters. Holly lives in Christmas Creek and her business and the rest of the town is dependent on the Christmas festival. Gordon has inherited the mansion that is the center of the festival. He doesn't like Christmas or anything to do with it until he meets Holly. His goal is to turn her against Christmas so he can build condos instead of Christmas themed stores. Love has a way to turn even the "Grinchiest" person's heart. Another wonderful story from Rachelle Ayala and great narration from Kate Marcin. I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review. You can't miss this Christmas themed story that will get you in the Christmas spirit whatever time of year you listen to it.

Just what I needed!!

Whether you love Christmas all year round or are just trying to get into the holiday spirit, Deck the Hearts: A Christmas Creek Romance, Book 1 will leave you smiling and feeling happy! This audiobook, written by Rachelle Ayala and narrated by Kate Marcin, is around 2 hours long...perfect for a drive up north or a Saturday afternoon at home! I didn't know it at the time, but being that I didn't stop smiling once throughout the entire listen, it was just what I needed!

Rachelle Ayala is an amazing author. :-) She has a way of pulling you into the story and making you feel like you are right there in the action of it all. Her characters are not only relatable and loveable, but they also feel like friends! Sometimes when I listen to a book, it takes me 2 hours to get to know the characters in the story...this book is just 2 hours, and when it was over I felt like I was saying good-bye to people I've known for years! Not everyone has talent like that! Great job!

Kate Marcin's narration made my experience more exciting and engaging than if I had just read it. I love audiobooks, but finding a narrator who adds to the story as a whole isn't always an easy task! I think she did a fantastic job! Ayala and Marcin are a great team!!

Overall, I rate this audiobook 5/5 stars! The plot advances quite quickly, but being that it is a short listen, that is expected. For me, the length is PERFECT! I don't want to give away any of story, but I will say that nothing drags on and onnnnnn like some books do. I loved it, and as I already stated, I didn't stop smiling even once. As I write this review, the date is September 13th, and Christmas isn't for a few months. However, I enjoyed this audiobook just as much as I would have if it were December 13th (in fact, I'll proably listen to it again around that time)! I highly recommend Deck the Hearts: A Christmas Creek Romance, Book 1 to those who love Romance, Chick Lit, or books about the holidays!

Thank you so much for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
