Publisher's Summary

A heart-warming yuletide romance by best-selling author Jude Deveraux. Hollander "Holly" Latham can't believe her good fortune. After endless calls, letters, emails, and promises, she's finally persuaded her parents to buy Spring Hill Plantation just outside beautiful, historic Edenton in eastern North Carolina - and strategically located near Belle Chere, the purest, most untouched plantation site in America.
At the tender age of 13, Holly fell in love with Lorrie Beaumont, who inherited the Revolutionary-period estate when his heiress mother died during childbirth. Though more than a decade has passed since Holly last locked eyes with her childhood love, the passion she felt in her young heart has never come close to extinguishing - that is, until charming, ruggedly handsome Nick Taggert unexpectedly waltzes into her life and treats her to an unforgettable weekend of laughter and intense passion.
Will Holly be seduced by Lorrie's wealth and privilege, or will she choose the simple gift of love that Nick has offered her? The answer is unveiled on a starry Christmas night, when passion, hate, and greed collide to reveal bitter truths that will forever change the course of Holly's charmed life.

Great holiday read!

Would you consider the audio edition of Holly to be better than the print version?

I always enjoy having audible versions of great stories. I love this author's work and am glad to have it in audio version.

Mistaken Identities, Love, & a Treasure Hunt

What other book might you compare Holly to and why?

It reminds me Jude Deveraux's, The Princess, which is even referenced in this story. Another high-class wealthy woman paired with a seemingly lower-class man, at least, as far as she is concerned.

Any additional comments?

The book is very short but enjoyable. A fun read. I just wish the characters were a little more fleshed out.
