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.

Deck the Hearts (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 1) by [Ayala, Rachelle]Deck the Hearts (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 1) 
Opposites attract and sparks fly in the delightful small town of Christmas Creek.

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.

Will Gordon prevail and turn Holly into a Grinch, or will a sprinkling of Christmas magic show Gordon that there’s no fighting love, especially when it’s wrapped up in a gorgeous redheaded package of jolly holly?

I have read a few of Rachelle Ayala’s books in the past and have so many I want to read, but this one really stood out for me. Bella is a young woman, living on her own with a manic cat, she is also a twin to her sister Tally. They may be sisters, they may be twins but one thing makes them different from each other – Bella has cerebral palsy. This story is all about her breaking free from her sisters shadow, standing on her own two feet and showing the world that she can make it on her own despite her disability.

Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would fall in love with the bad boy next door though! Chance Martin, he is Bella’s brother in law, and not only that but he has spent time in prison, the reason as to what he was in for is being bantered about the town as gossip and whilst it is not initially known, Bella accepts him for who he is and in Chance’s own way he accepts her for who she is as well.

Chance came over as a bit of an numpty acting all gruff and mean, but really deep down he didn’t think he was deserving of anyone’s love, let alone Bella’s. I loved their interactions with each other, and their story and how strong Bella was as a character in overcoming her overbearing family who although they were only looking out for her best interest they were treating her almost like a child due to her disability – but boy did she prove them all wrong. 

Bella & Chance are the complete opposite yet compliment each other perfectly, their story shows that love doesn’t discriminate.
