An Evergreen Christmas
Dr. Holly Green hasn't celebrated Christmas since age thirteen when her parents were killed in a car accident on Christmas Eve. An intense surgeon but a social wallflower, Holly successfully dodges the hospital holiday party every year, except this year when she meets Dr. Noel Shepherd, sexy new surgeon on the block who's determined to end her absenteeism.
The polar opposite of Holly, Noel revels in the Christmas spirit, sporting a penguin print necktie and Santa sticker on his beeper.
From the moment Holly bumps into Noel in the operating room, she can't deny her attraction to him. Noel likewise lights up around Holly.
When their relationship heats up over the holiday season, Noel purchases an evergreen tree that he and Holly could decorate. But his surprise quickly sours when Holly refuses to have anything to do with the tree. Has Noel crossed the line, catapulting Holly into a Christmas she isn't ready to celebrate?
I really enjoyed this story.The characters backgrounds are so well explained you feel you really know them.Holly has gone through a lot of loss and heartache in her life.She lost both of her parents on Christmas Eve when she just thirteen.She hasn't
celebrated Christmas since.Holly was known as a loner,never doing much but working as a surgeon and going straight home.
Then comes a new surgeon to her crew who she bumps into.Literally.She is dazed by his good looks and how sweet he is. Doesn't take long for Noel to take an interest in Dr.Holly Green.He's just as smitten as she is.They hit a bump in the road as most new couples do.But come Christmas Eve and an emergency that require them both to save the life of one Holly's students,things take a turn.
This whole story pulls together nicely and just flows.You can feel the emotions that the characters are feeling.You will laugh in parts as well feel the sorrow in the deeper scenes of this book. Just a well balanced great Christmas read.
