    This is a cute story about a cross-country trip that Lacey takes in an attempt to reconcile with her father after years of estrangement. A last minute change requires her to ride with the crusty trucker Cooper who is not pleased when he discovers he's unwittingly agreed to also transpo...

    Reading for the Southern Lit group. This book was so cheesy I felt like I should be eating crackers. I didn't find it "Southern Lit". Most of the story took place in a tractor-trailer traveling across the country. Once they arrived in North Carolina there was very little Southern cult...

    Truly a heartwarming and wonderful read at this or any time of year! Shortly after opening any of Curtiss Ann's novels, I am quickly reminded of how much I love her writing. I highly recommend this and her other novels. ...

    This book is a nice Christmas romance. You won't have to worry about any swearing or sassy parts. There are a few cheesy parts but overall it's a nice, feel-good book. ...

    Light, slightly cheesy read. A simple story of a waitress (why are they always waitresses?) raising two kids on her own who finally decides to mend the fence with her father. When she got pregnant her dad threw her out. She had another kid, her husband left and so she ended up at Geral...

    A quick read about a single mom traveling cross country to visit her family for the first time in many years. A feel-good read about family with a love interest twist. Good for a light, quick read during the busy Christmas Season. ...

    2.5** I feel a little like Scrooge giving this a lower rating, but ... This is a short, (too) sweet story of love found unexpectedly ? or at least unexpected by the characters; the reader sees it coming a mile off. Lacey is a single mom with two children, scraping by on her wage...

    My beloved friend, author Curtiss Ann Matlock, is well known for her down home, heartfelt romances - each one written from her heart and soul. Now, I am so pleased to let readers know that Curtiss Ann's books are being made available for e-readers, just in time for the holidays! ...

    I enjoyed this Christmas story. It is light and quick. Lacey is returning home to North Carolina with her two children for the first time in 11 years. Love finds two people that had given up on finding any. There is forgiveness and personal growth, and not to mention, some Christmas ma...

    For readers who want something light and clean (only kisses), this novella is just right. However the short length inhibited the chance to become invested in the characters. Nice enough but not a reread. ...

    This novel was a quick read but I thoroughly enjoyed it.Curtiss Ann Matlock's writing grabbed my attention. Lacey was a heartwarming character dealing with some real-life issues. If you are looking for a Christmas read that leaves you feeling sappy and pulling for the underdog(s), this...

    What a fun feel good Christmas story about Lacey and her kids who ride home for the holidays in Cooper's eighteen-wheeler. I found this interesting take on the humbug versus Christmas spirit theme very enjoyable. ...

    This story is a reprint. It originally appeared in one of Silhouette's Christmas stories collections (not sure which one). I never know what to expect from Curtiss Ann Matlock. Some of her stories have bored me to tears. But not this one. It was short (less than 100 pages) but swee...

    I like to read a Christmas book every year so I wanted to be able to read one this year as well. I had this book for awhile and finally decided to get to it. This a first time read for me with this author, so I was not sure what to expect, but it turned out to be pretty good. Synops...

    It was an easy and light read but just felt I wasn't able to invest in the characters. I enjoyed the ending and there were some nice touches to add a bit of an unexpected twist (although the story was pretty predictable). This wouldn't be one I would rush to recommend to others, howeve...

    It was good read. This is the first book by Curtiss Ann Matlock I have read. It was a "Free" ebook from Amazon. It's a sweet romance between a Waitress and her kids and a Truck Driver. It is a Christmas theme romance. ...

    Like a super sweet made-for-Hallmark Channel TV Christmas movie. Unsophisticated and simply written, short and predictable, yet a well told story. ...

    I have read numerous books by Curtiss Ann Matlock but somehow missed this one. I wasn't sure she was still writing, but apparently she still is although this is an old book. It is a delightful, sweet Christmas story of wounded people who help each other out in a time of need . It is se...
