Book Info:

Wrapped with a Beau by Lillie Vale

Genre: Adult Romance

Publishing Date: September 26, 2023


In its heyday, Piney Peaks and its beloved Christmas House were made famous by Sleighbells, a romantic holiday movie. 50 years later, the small town is ready for a new love story.

As a successful film liaison, Elisha Rowe has her heart set on one thing and one thing only: putting her hometown back on the map. So, when she gets the chance to secure a sequel to Sleighbells, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure everything goes smoothly. Unfortunately, that includes claiming to have already secured permission to film at the historic Christmas house—permission she was very much denied by the gorgeous new owner.

Ves Hollins is only back in Piney Peaks long enough to sell the house he inherited from his great-aunt. The holidays have always been tough for Ves, and it’s not any easier when he’s distracted by memories of a Christmas long, long ago, and the undeniable charm of neighbor Elisha. Ready to return home to New York as quickly as possible, he has no plans to put down roots or fall in love…even if Elisha unravels his hesitations like a bad Christmas sweater.

There’s no question the two are opposites in every way. Ves is unquestionably frosty. Elisha is brimming with warmth. He doesn’t do commitment. She never runs from a challenge. But as the two grow closer, they quickly realize that the growing spark between them may be just what the season calls for.

Tour Schedule:

Today it is the 3rd September and my review of Wrapped with A Beau by Lillie Vale does not go live until the 17th but I need to put down my thoughts like now.

I am relatively new to reading Christmas Romance Books during the festive season heck I never ever included any Christmas books. So I am always on the lookout to make my reading as festive as possible and for me Wrapped with a Beau was perfect.

This book gave me all the feels and last night I could not help thinking and wanting to finish as I was desperate to find out what happened to Ves and Elisha I kept waking up in the early hours so I could read some more and I love my sleep.

I loved both Ves and Elisha but Ves tugged at my heart strings more and I could see why he was deemed to be the grumpy one.

As much as I cried I laughed alot to with Ves and Elisha first encounter to the Christmas Innuendos had me cackling alot. Not forgetting the Smut which was top notch and was so well written and not added for the sake of it.

I really do hope there be more visits to Piney Peaks as I loved the setting and the People but what would be the icing on the cake would be Maeve's story hint hint.

For all the above reasons I am giving Wrapped with a Beau 5 stars
