After three holiday heartbreaks in a row, caterer Emily Landon is determined to break her Christmas Curse--and what better way than to spend Christmas at the remote inn, Angel's Landing, where her recently cold-footed boyfriend can't reach her to break things off. 
For small-town veterinarian Griffin Boone, the holidays always find him falling in love with the wrong woman--but this year he has a fail-proof plan to keep his heart safe: One last house call to Angel's Landing's aging Golden Retriever and he's heading to a cabin in the woods to hide out until the New Year. 

But when an ice storm strands Griffin at the inn with Emily, everyone's careful holiday plans are tossed like last year's tree. 

Will unexpected attraction confirm Griffin and Emily's worst fears--or could this year's Christmas Curse be a blessing in disguise?

Emily Landon has had some of the worst luck when it comes to men and Christmas. Every Christmas for the last several years has ended with Emily brokenhearted and feeling like a curse has been placed upon her. So this Christmas Emily has decided to take matters into her own hands and escape her life and take herself away from the problem, hoping that if she spends Christmas in an remote inn that she can make sure her relationship with her boyfriend survives this festive holiday. 
Griffin Boone has seen his fair share of hurt and loss in his life, these events were one of the main reasons why he decided to go from a doctor to a vet. So when Griffin stops by to visit a golden retriever who hasn't been well lately, he is unprepared for the events that will transpire and throw his solo Christmas plans out of the window. 
Stuck together in a small cabin Emily and Griffin are not happy, with the situation or each other. Although they soon realise that they are more alike than they first thought and maybe this Christmas would be the Christmas that changes their minds and hearts about their relationships and desires. 
I loved how The Christmas Curse covered a lot of topics, one of them a sensitive topic which draws on the mental health side of someone from Griffin's past and how things are never what they seem. Emily's character is one that showed the desire to find and keep love as that is all she wants in life. Griffin's character is one who has experienced something that would effect someone very deeply yet he has used that experience and helped others, pushing them to follow their dreams and not to follow others happiness just their own. 
The Christmas Curse is a truly, magical Christmas read that makes you realise that Christmas is a lot more than just presents and decorations. It is about love, family, hope and above all finding your true destiny and not anyone else's. 

Hopeful, Love and Moving. 

Another day, another book,
