Christmas Miracles at the Little Log Cabin by Helen J Rolfe #Romance @HJRolfe @rararesources #BlogTour #TuesdayBookBlog

My Review

I was intrigued by the title (Christmas and a lion don’t usually go together) and, although it’s the second book in a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone.
