Welcome to Advent Reads!
This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now. Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!

Synopsis: "The third book in the Highland, Georgia romantic comedy series from Laura Trentham, A Highlander is Coming to Town, full of love, laughs...and highlanders!
You better watch out. . .
Holt Pierson is dreading Christmas. His parents absconded to Florida for the season and left him to handle the family farm which will be his one day―whether he wants it or not. Driven by duty, Holt has always followed the path expected of him. But lately, he’s been questioning what he wants and where he belongs. Will assuming the responsibility of the Pierson farm make him happy or is there something―or someone―else out in the wider world calling to him?
To Claire Smythe, the Scottish lead singer of a touring band, Highland, Georgia, is the perfect place to hide . . .until a very handsome and deeply curious Holt begins to ask all the questions Claire doesn’t want to answer. As Holt draws Claire out from under and into the fabric of small-town life, can Claire put the past behind her and embrace the unexpected gifts of the season―including the new and lasting love?"
My Review: I just started with this series this year and have come to adore the little town of Highland with all it's quirky characters and fun festivals. I was so happy to see Holt get his own book, he is definitely a character I really became attached to in previous books. This was also a perfect book to get you into the holiday spirit. I was really drawn in with the mystery and backstory surrounding Claire. I adored Ms. Meadows and loved watching the relationships with her and the people around her grow and shift as the story progressed. This is definitely a feel good holiday romance, though I would recommend reading the previous books first, but I think this is the best in the series so far.
My Rating: This is such a great holiday book. I honestly read it way before the holiday season but it still gave me all the vibes and the characters have definitely stuck with me. If you want a heartwarming book, a bit of steamy romance and some comedy this is a great one to pick up. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley. The above is my honest review and opinion.
