Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?
Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.
It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.
Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.
When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.
Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?
Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

Bella & Chance, Her Christmas Chance
Bella has a wayward cat that likes to find himself in Chance’s woodworking shop tearing things up. Chance confronts Bella and upsets her. Bella is devastated she has a crush on chance and is resigned that relationships are not for her. Chance apologizes for upsetting her and shows her a good time. More and more time they spend together it seems Chance can look past Bella’s disabilities. The only thing holding them back is the secret of what put Chance in jail which he was released from three years ago. Chance is afraid when the truth comes out Bella will be the one that will want to run.
In an Oyster Shell – A good romance that was tasteful and inspiring.
The Pearls – I here the term diverse characters being thrown around and I think Bella should be considered a diverse character especially in a romance. Bella was severely disabled and was not your typical heroine for a romance. I loved it. Her disabilities where her strength and how Chance accepted them made them even more beautiful.
I loved that this book was set in a small town with a big loving family thrown into the mix. Bella’s family comes to town and there is drama from her brother but other than that her family is overprotective of her. When they make a point to let her make her own decisions and accept Chance it leaves you with a cozy feeling.
I like the character development. Both Bella and Chance thought they were social rejects that nobody could love. They proved each other wrong. That took a lot of guts that they acquired through perseverance.
The Sand – It was a good book.

Holly Jolly lives for Christmas. It’s the only time of the year, as far as she’s concerned.
Gordon Gills doesn’t need a reason to hate the holiday season. He doesn’t see the point.
Gordon returns to the mansion he inherited and finds Holly making a mess with her Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, his great-aunt’s will stipulates that he must make merry every Christmas if he wants to keep his inheritance.
Holly is determined to infect the grouchy Gordon with every dose of Christmas cheer she can muster and show him what Christmas is really about.
