Book Review-Blue Chow Christmas: The Hart Family (Have A Hart Book 4)-Rachelle Ayala

Monday, May 8, 2017

This is one of the series that I want to read them all--and hope that Rachelle Ayala keeps on going with--every one is a winner! I haven't read them all in order-but they don't need to be--each can stand on it's own although the same character's can be found in each along with new ones.

This one deals with Cait Hart who has been married to Brian for 12 years--but it was a marriage of convenience for both of them. Not that Cait's tight knit family knew--all they knew was that Brian and Cait were essentially living separate lives, and they were worried about it!

There are lots of twists and turns and lots of secrets that will be revealed! Can these two make their marriage work? And what are all the secrets that are being kept? Read the book to find out.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

If you love sweet romances (PG-rating), look no further than Rachelle Ayala's Have a Hart series. The Harts are a family of San Francisco firefighters. Their family motto is: Heart comes first.

Cait Hart has been married to Brian Wonder for twelve years, but does she really know him? The redheaded firefighter is dependable, loyal, and kind to others, but he's never let her probe his feelings.

Brian's life is blown open when his former high school teacher and wife of a senator dies in a car crash. When a pair of blue chow dogs show up at his mountain cabin, he is forced to tell Cait his secret--the real owner of the dogs is a boy he believes is his son.

Cait and Brian are tested on the true meaning of love when the boy goes missing and authorities suspect Brian of wrongdoing. Can two lost chow dogs save this fragile and vulnerable family?

Blue Chow Christmas is Book #4 of the Have A Hart Romance Series. It can be read standalone, although characters from the previous books appear here in supporting roles.

Awe, Blue Chow Christmas sounds like a book I want to read. Since it is pg there are no slaughters an such. I like when animals are a little piece of the story. My dog is half Chow but only has the fur collar. My daughter would like this too. I think they can make it. I'm all for the under dog.

Thanks so much for your warm review. The chow dogs who inspired my story belong to my sister and appear on the cover. I better get book #6 written, hopefully by the end of summer.
