What’s up, Grinches?! Just kidding. I know not everyone’s a Scrooge around the holidays, but don’t you just love to read love stories starring them? They start out hot and all bah-humbugy, but eventually the romance of the season sweeps them off their feet, and suddenly they’re hot, heart-eyed puddles of goo.
As an enthusiastic lover of grump-to-love romances, I’m very excited to welcome you to my stop on Harlequin’s blog tour for Christmas from the Heart by Sheila Roberts!

About the Book
“USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts takes readers to a small, snowbound town, where a young woman fights to save her family’s charity that brings Christmas to families in need, and a stranded millionaire loses his heart and finds the true meaning of Christmas.
Sometimes you need to look beyond the big picture to see what really matters
Olivia Berg’s charity, Christmas from the Heart, has helped generations of families in need in Pine River, Washington, but this year might be the end of the road. Hightower Enterprises, one of their biggest donors since way back when Olivia’s grandmother ran the charity, has been taken over by Ebenezer Scrooge the Second, aka CFO Guy Hightower, and he’s declared there will be no more money coming to Christmas from the Heart.
Guy is simply being practical. Hightower Enterprises needs to tighten its belt, and when you don’t have money to spare, you don’t have money to share. You’d think even the pushy Olivia Berg could understand that.
With charitable donations dwindling, Olivia’s Christmas budget depends on Hightower’s contribution. She’s focused her whole life on helping this small town, even putting her love life on hold to support her mission.
When Guy’s Maserati breaks down at the edge of the Cascade foothills, he’s relieved to be rescued by a pretty young woman who drives him to the nearby town of Pine River. Until he realizes his rescuer is none other than Olivia Berg. What’s a Scrooge to do? Plug his nose and eat fruitcake and hope she doesn’t learn his true identity before he can get out of town. What could go wrong?”

Christmas from the Heart by Shelia Roberts was such a fun, charming read!
Olivia and Guy start their relationship off on snarky terms, and it basically comedically train-wrecks from there.
I really enjoyed watching these two fall in love, slowly realizing that their first impressions of each other were totally off-the-mark. Guy initially thinks Ellie is pushy and money-hungry, and Ellie thinks Guy is a selfish Scrooge. Their voyage of discovery was utterly delightful. I was all smiles.
Christmas from the Heart is a funny, uplifting, and entertaining read made for snuggling under fluffy, soft blankets on snowy days. Roberts’ writing style is heartwarming and cheerful, and she had me laughing out loud a few times. This book is a Hallmark movie waiting to happen! It left me in such a blissful, Christmas-is-magical state.
Christmas From the Heart is officially one of my favorite Christmas releases of 2019. If you love heartfelt, romantic romps with hot, Scroogey love interests, this is the book for you. Prepared to be utterly enchanted.
