A Lot Like Christmas Kait Nolan Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Jaded Army medic Ryan Malone never expected his next mission would bring him back from Afghanistan to tiny Wishful, Mississippi. His great uncle's health is failing and the cantankerous old coot has pushed everyone in the family away. Ryan is their last resort to get Uncle Percy to move into assisted living before he breaks a hip—or something worse. He's looking to get in, get it done, and get back out. That definitely doesn't include taking time out for a sweet-faced waitress with a heart bigger than the Atlantic.

Interior designer Hannah Wheeler is a long way from the high-powered clients of her old Atlanta firm. Despite the fact that she's currently spending her days waiting tables, she's discovered she really enjoys the small-town life she found with her sister. This Christmas season, she's finally ready to introduce Wishful to her true capabilities by using her skills to spread some holiday spirit. But with Ryan and Percy, she's definitely got her work cut out for her.

Will Hannah's evergreen cheer thaw their frosty hearts and remind these two that the most important part of the holidays is family?

  • A Wishful Christmas

    By cici-online
    Kait Nolan’s stories are always filled with love and friendship and A Lot Like Christmas is no exception. Hannah Wheeler is living with her sister in Wishful, MS, while recovering from the car accident that derailed her Atlanta interior design career. Ryan Malone, a medic with the Army’s elite Delta Force, is currently on leave and on a very different mission. At his mother’s request, he’s in town to perform a wellness check on a beloved family connection, his ‘Uncle’ Percy. But Percy isn’t cooperating and Ryan is beyond frustrated when Hannah is sent by a friend of Percy’s to decorate his house for Christmas. As the decorations go up, Percy is reminded of holidays with his beloved late wife Janie. Like a Christmas miracle Percy begins to lose his reclusive and curmudgeonly ways as his home is transformed. And, Ryan begins to fall for kind, sweet, talented Hannah. Going back to Wishful is like visiting old friends -- before you know it the visit is over and you hate to leave. You can only hope you’ll be invited back to Wishful soon! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    By Jen G F
    ARC for honest review with no compensation received from BookSprout Ryan a Delta Force medic on leave for Christmas, comes to Wishful after a call from his mother to check on his stubborn Uncle Percy who has become a homebody after the death of his wife a few years prior. Fresh off the plane he borrows his buddy’s truck to head to Wishful and breaks down outside of town, walks to town and goes to the diner and meets Hannah a waitress who thinks he is a homeless person. She waits on him and tries to spread holiday cheer but he doesn’t really respond... Hannah a big city interior designer, now a waitress in Wishful recovering from a horrible accident and with her never ending optimism for spreading holiday cheer and the hopes of starting her own interior design business. With the help of a Secret Santa she ends up at Uncle Percy’s to use her skills to decorate his house and who answers the door but Ryan! The magic of Wishful brings these two together in an unusual way and maybe they can help each other to overcome the fears they both are hiding deep inside.

  • Christmas spirit in Wishful

    By Nettie1114
    A Lot Like Christmas by Kait Nolan is a beautifully written story of the romance between Ryan Malone and Hannah Wheeler. Ryan looks homeless when Hannah sees him outside the diner on a cold winter night and brings him in and pays for a coffee and soup. Ryan, a Army medic, whose borrowed truck breaks down outside of the town of Wishful is in town to check on his Uncle and access him whether he is ok to live alone. When they meet again Hannah is decorating his Uncle's home for Christmas as a gift from one of his late wife Uncle's friends. A Lot Like Christmas is romantic and full of unique characters in the wonderful town of Wishful. It is beautiful story of finding love and the Christmas spirit, and one you will thoroughly enjoy reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Wishful meets military romance.... swoon

    By CassBloom
    Hannah seems like an amazing person from the first scene, then she meets Ryan’s eyes and her warm welcome sparks the fire… even if they don’t know it yet! It was fun to see him melt down his walls slowly while she found her courage and opened herself up for more than a moment’s time. I enjoy how so many small businesses flourish in Wishful and how young love can be found. Hannah’s Christmas decorating business may be one of my favorite so far! I loved the slow burn of Hannah and Ryan’s relationship that develops into trust and commitment. I couldn’t have written a better epilogue myself, and am glad they got their HEA… Thanks Kait! My new favorite line in a book… “That was a kind thing, and my mama always says you should never apologize for kindness. Even if you jumped to the wrong conclusion.” I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    By angie1229
    This is the first holiday story I’ve read this season, and now it’ll be the yardstick to compare all the others to, and it has set the bar high!

  • Another Great Wishful romance!

    By Lil herp
    Oh how I love this series! The Wishful world is great and this one has a great bonus of the Casserole Patrol! You have to read Kait ‘s books. They are all stand alone, but they are even better when you read them all. Kait is so talented. She creates great characters and a fictional world you want to live in. Such a gift!

  • Sweet romance

    By Killer read
    Another great romance by Kait Nolan. Her books are sweet, funny, and romantic. This one did not disappoint. Hannah is living in Wishful with her sister while she recovers from a health scare and tries to decide what to do with her life. Ryan is a military man in the special forces. He doesn’t have time for relationships. Ryan takes a leave from the military to check on his “Uncle” Percy. The three join forces to decorate Percy’s home for Christmas. Everyone starts trying to play matchmaker. I love how the book shows the different challenges each character is facing and how their relationships with each other help them overcome the obstacles they are facing.

  • Best yet!!!

    By Norm256
    With every new Kait Nolan release, I find a new favorite, but this one takes the cake!!! A Lot Like Christmas is my FAVE!!! When Ryan, a Delta Force medic, checks on his adopted elderly uncle while he is on leave, meets Hannah, the town Christmas Cheer-meister, lonely Uncle Percy gets to play Christmas match maker, all the while Uncle Percy is being matched up himself. The chemistry and fire between Ryan and Hannah is undeniable, regardless of intentions. Mr. Boyscout, Ryan touches the soft spot I have for the servicemen and woman in uniform. Not only is this my favorite Kait Nolan book, but it ranks at the top of my all-time favorite list! Kait Nolan doesn’t disappoint!!!
