One Christmas can change your life… Kyle Houseman believes he'll never find anyone he could love as much as Olivia Arnold, who's now married to his stepbrother. Not only did he lose her, he's been through one divorce and has no desire to go through another. He's determined to be extra careful about the next woman he gets involved with—which is why he fights his attraction to the beautiful stranger who rents his farmhouse for the Christmas holiday.
Lourdes Bennett is a country music artist. She's only planning to stay in Whiskey Creek long enough to write the songs for her next album—the album that's going to put her back on top. Her dreams don't include settling in a town even smaller than the one she escaped. But as she comes to know Kyle, she begins to wonder if she'd be making a terrible mistake to leave him behind…

A Winter Wedding is quite honestly a sensual masterpiece with lots of emotional turmoil, fun characters, with one crazed ex running around town. It was a romance that I just could not put down.
Finally we get Kyle’s story. I have had such a love/hate love affair with this hero from previous books in the Whiskey Creek series, that I was totally blown away by Brenda Novak’s ability to do Kyle’s character justice, Thank you Ms. Novak for showing Kyle in a new light.
Kyle is a true friend without question. After everything that has happened, Kyle still feels like an outsider. He just wants what his friends have, Marriage, Kids, but is he ready to let go of the past? First Kyle needs to rid himself from his very own stalker, his ex-Noelle. Kyle realize maybe his sexy little renter could help him out in that area. The question is will he be able to pull back when she leaves town?
When it came to Lourdes, it was hard thinking of her as a country music star. This heroine came with her own baggage, but it did not steel her heart. Lourdes is a very open character. Lourdes and Kyle formed a bond quite fast, is what they’re feel a lasting feeling or a quick flash of passion.
I enjoyed the banter between Lourdes and Kyle. It was like watching their attraction and love bloom from standing in the same room. You feel so much. There is one moment which I can’t mention except that it was the moment that I could love Kyle without any hesitation.
Supporting characters are the usual gang, which it was great to see how they have all grown. I loved seeing Bax again. Ms. Novak you know I have to ask, are you going to try to give Bax his own HEA? Maybe heel what has transpired between him and his father? Kyle and Lourdes received support when needed, I did enjoy seeing Lourdes fit in so naturally.
Brenda Novak does it again with A Winter Wedding book #9 in the Whiskey Creek Series. Heartfelt, Sexy, Suspenseful and Funny… A truly marvelous story. I highly recommend anyone who has not tried Brenda Novak’s Whiskey Creek series, do so. You will not be able to stop at just one book.
