New Year’s at the Graff: Holiday at the Graff Book 3 is a fun, small town romance featuring a single mother, her adorable little girl, and the big city businessman who steals their hearts. Ava has finally finished her education and she is determined to move on from being a housekeeper to a businesswoman helping other single mothers get back on their feet. She isn’t looking for love, so when she spots the handsome, well-dressed stranger on New Year’s Eve, she’s surprised by how strongly she’s affected by him. Author Marin Thomas did a great job of bringing me right back to Marietta and the chocolate shop, Grey’s Saloon and all the happenings in this adorable small town.

The thing that I liked best about New Year’s at the Graff was the low-key, angst free way Lucas and Ava got together. Other than a few hot kisses, they took time to get to know each other and, though they both fell fast, they didn’t jump into anything. This is definitely a beautiful romance, but the other relationships in the story really made me love it. Tilly, Ava’s mother-in-law, and her quirks were fun and entertaining, but the way Marin Thomas wrote Lucas and Princess Sophie made them the true scene-stealers, in my opinion. Even his relationship with his mother and then his father kept me reading just to see what was happening. This is a fun and easy to read romance that I’m happy I got a chance to enjoy. Fun times are always had in Marietta.
