Review: A Sugar Creek Christmas (Sugar Creek #1) by Jenny B. Jones

About the Book
Sometimes all love needs is a second chance.

Morning television show darling Emma Sutton has just been fired. The only way to get her job back is to find a holiday story to warm the coldest heart. So when her hometown of Sugar Creek, Arkansas, needs a Christmas event planner, Emma moves back, sure her story lies in the town’s desire to become a tourist’s holiday wonderland. The plan is perfect—until Emma meets her new boss.

Charming, handsome Noah Kincaid isn’t just Sugar Creek’s newest mayor. He’s also Emma’s ex-fianc√©. Ten years ago Emma left Noah her ring and a goodbye note, but it’s haunted her ever since. The last thing Noah wants to do is work with the woman who broke his heart, but Emma’s desperate to prove to him that her bah-humbug ways won’t interfere with her work.

Emma finds it’s more than the mistletoe drawing her back to Noah. Whatever they had is clearly not over, but Noah’s kisses can’t protect Emma from a past that won’t leave her alone. As the snow falls and the trees glisten, love will come to Sugar Creek. But will it come in time to make all of Emma’s Christmas dreams come true?

My Thoughts

This was such a fun Christmas read! It's full of lots of laughs and a ton of heart.

Emma Sutton loses her job as a news anchor at America's favorite morning show after she says, on air, that she hates Christmas. The only way to get her job back is to find the most inspirational and heartwarming story. A story that will bring a smile to even the worst Grinch. So she heads back home to Sugar Creek, Arkansas looking for her one shot at redemption, looking for her Christmas.

This story is full of wonderful and likable characters. Emma was a great leading lady. She had a tough childhood which greatly colored her view of Christmas. I loved watching her work through things and discover her Christmas. Noah, oh my. He's so swoonworthy and so sweet. He's pretty much the epitome of the perfect guy. My favorite character, though, was Sylvie, Emma's ex-CIA grandmother. She was something else, lol! So hilarious, so ridiculous, and just plain awesome.

This was a quick read that I devoured as fast as possible. I'm eager to check out the other books in this series and highly recommend it if you're looking for a Christmas romance.

Four Stars


  1. Aw, I've been watching so many Hallmark movies lately - this sounds perfect.

    1. This would make a fantastic Hallmark movie. I'd love to see that happen. :)

  2. I admit, I do love to read a fun Christmas romance or two this time of year. :D
