Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?



Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.

It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.

Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.

When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.

Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?

Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

I want to start out by giving huge kudos to the author! Writing any story is tough, but to take on subjects as cerebral palsy, child abuse, and ex-cons, Rachelle Ayala has blown my mind with her talent.

When it comes to the characters, you can't help but admire Bella's determination to be independent, even if her whole family (well, accept from her brother) wants to keep her in a bubble. Chance's story is heartbreaking, and boy, I got so mad, at the people responsible. But I love the way he sees Bella for who she is, and encourages her to do what ever she wants.

Her Christmas Chance is a beautiful story, of overcoming adversity and finding love, even if it does come with a destructive cat! Which is why I am giving it 5 stars!

Deck the Hearts (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 1) by [Ayala, Rachelle]
Deck the Hearts (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 1) 

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?
