    1. 5 - "A star says you're home." Stars!Loved this one, have been saving it so I could get maximum Christmas satisfaction from it, after falling in love with the people and town of Good Hope while reviewing the second book in the series earlier on this year. "Good Hope is it's own world."The Bloom sisters are just an absolute treat to get to know, and I cannot wait for the next book, which is thankfully due in January.


    2. It's not a work of great literature. Yeah, it's a romance novel. And, as some may feel, it's worse than that: it's a Christmas story.I could not help but be charmed by this book, however. It was predictable, sure. Sweet. I could picture it being played as a movie on the Hallmark Channel during the Christmas season and I, the softy that I am, would likely be totally taken by it. (I have, after all, watched just about everything the Hallmark Channel, and its like channels, show during Christmas. A [...]


    3. 3 1/2 Christmas Stars!!I enjoyed this story. It was very much like watching a Hallmark Chanel Christmas movie. Both MCs were very likable. They both had a serious issue they were dealing with. The romance was slow building. A little more real life like than lots of the books I read. Though they certainly hit the gas at the end. There wasn't anything overwhelming or especially surprising, but it was a sweet Christmas romance I liked a lot. There were also several side characters that I'd be inter [...]


    4. Reviewed for Romancing the Readers Blog: romancingthereaders.I have to tell you that it took me forever to figure out a Christmas story to giveaway and review. I spent a good two, maybe three days looking and picking only to disregarded it a pick something new. See the problem was that since I was giving it away and hadn't yet read it I wanted to be sure to pick something good. But as I mention it was going to be something I hadn't read yet. Scary thought. So after the few days of looking, I wen [...]


    5. It put me in the Christmas spirit, so what the heck, I'm giving it 4 stars! It's a simple read (I read it in one sitting, with a few interruptions) but it's so sweet. What can I say? I guess I'm a sap, or a sucker for small town Christmas romance stories. Even though it was somewhat predictable, it was a nice little escape. Perfect for reading by a fire, with some hot chocolate and a cat purring in your lap (and NO, that's not my life I don't have a fireplace). It was my free book for November f [...]


    6. Christmas in Good Hope by award-winning romance author Cindy Kirk is Book #1 in the new Good Hope series and, if it’s any indication, this is going to be a series every bit as good as a few other popular town-centric heartwarming series I’ve read. I always gravitate toward this kind of series during the holidays and I become nostalgic and sentimental – yes, you caught me - I’m just a big ol’ mush-melon inside.

    7. I was a little surprised at this story, and pleasantly so. It was a cute small-town romance, but it also had a realistic feel to it, because of the tragedies that had struck both Beck and Ami. Beck did the tortured hero well, and Ami was a good foil for him. I didn't like how long she kept her secret, but the way it came out was very realistic! I loved all the secondary characters in the book, and am eager to see more of the series!


    8. There was a lot that was nice about this book - the main characters were well-fleshed out and there was none of the farcical insta-lust that seems to infect so many 'Christmas' stories. Ami and Beck were interesting and there was an air of 'normality' about their relationship.However, this is yet another 'small town America book' where a cohort (coven?) of thoroughly obnoxious women decide exactly what everyone else should do. They browbeat, bully, threaten, blackmail and generally ride roughsho [...]


    9. Typical romantic novel which was well written and had a good story line. With two or three different side issues added into the plot this book was an easy and enjoyable read


    10. I received an eARC of this book as a part of 's Kindle First program. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.Christmas in Good Hope by Cindy Kirk is a sweet, contemporary romance about grief and second chances. This is such a sweet story about two people from very different backgrounds finding each other and bringing out the other’s best. Ami and Beckett’s story is one that you should not miss!Ami Bloom is the eldest of four sisters and the only one to stay [...]


    11. Is It Love?A love story is hard to write. Without a doubt, Ms Kirk has figured out how to write a good love story. She has an impressive body of work to prove she knows her way around a successful novel.Good Hope is a town with a heart. The residents know the secret to happiness: helping others because it's the right thing to do. It's a place where you want to raise your children because you know it's safe. Steven and Sarah Bloom raised four daughters there. I'll let you discover their names. On [...]



    12. Christmas in Good Hope was a sweet, entertaining Christmas book. While the book centers around Ami and Beck it's really a book about the town of Good Hope. Ami is a sweet, glass is half full character who truly loves Christmas and all that it entails. She's struck up a friendship with Beck who moved to Good Hope after a horrible loss and is hoping to avoid all the trappings of Christmas. Ami needs Beck's help and slowly pulls him back into enjoying Christmas and all that the town has to offer.I [...]


    13. Where do I beginning I did find this through Kindle Unlimited, which did come with the option to use Audible which I am finding the greatest addition, you can do other chores or take a shower while listening such a great new option in my life. i love brushing my teeth and tuning my ears in. so cool!! who ever this reader is just amazing, love her voice and need to figure it out so i can see what else we had done. so great. love her voices and all her funny ways. so perfect. Cindy is new to me [...]


    14. Lovely story of love and friendshipWhen you need to read something to lift your spirits, to smile and laugh, or to fill good about the world around you; I think you will be pleased if you pick up this book. It was so refreshing to read a story about not only romantic love, but love within a community. People helping people. I hope there is a sequel; I'm not ready to leave Good Hope or its characters.


    15. DNF at 48%I chose this as my free Prime download back in December and began reading it just before Christmas. Considering it's the end of March and I'm not even halfway through, I don't see myself continuing to read this book.Essentially, the story just wasn't for me. It was kind of a simple romance plot that took place in a small town, but none of the characters or storylines were all that interesting.


    16. Loved it! I'm an eternal optimist, too!This book focused on the importance of community and neighbors,helping g neighbors, I loved that! It was,also,a beautiful love story that focused on unconditional love and forgiveness, something we could use a lot more of in our world today. Reading works,like Cindy's help me keep a more positive outlook on life.


    17. Christmas and HopeEnjoyed the story and the characters The small-town background was charming and I wanted to visit Good Hope Read it in one sitting held my interest till the end !



    18. A truly delightful Christmas read. This would make a wonderful Hallmark movie. This is the first book I have read by Cindy Kirk, but it will not be the last. Happy reading!



    19. Very well written for an author that was unknown to me until now. A perfectly plotted romantic Christmas novel that's worth the read!


    20. Definitely a feel good Christmas story! I can see it as a Hallmark movie :) Do I really have to wait until June for Book 2?


    21. Sweet story. Ami owns a bakery next to the cafe that was recently bought by Beck Cross. Ami quickly befriended Beck and they have a daily ritual of morning coffee together. As part of her 'initiation' into the ladies auxiliary, Ami is tasked with talking Beck into opening his house up for the annual Christmas tourmething in which the previous owner participated. Ami is an all-around do-gooder. She collects donations for various charitable groups, delivers food baskets, etcd she's slowly breaking [...]


    22. I enjoyed this book. This town was awesome in their Christmas spirit. I really enjoyed this story. The characters were individuals just like any small town community has, some liked, some not so much, and some outstanding, and all believable. Ami is one of the outstanding ones. She's very likable, community minded, willing to help others when needed, but hard on herself. People helping people especially during the holidays is part of what makes a small town so inviting. There's also the fact tha [...]


    23. Ugh within the first two lines I knew I had listened to a book by this narrator before - and immediately remembered that I didn't like it because of the narrator. I feel bad saying that, but I've had to restart the book three times in the first 5 minutes because I can't concentrate on what she's saying. I'm hyper focused on the way she is over-annunciating the words. Narration is very clipped - pacing does not flow and she constantly interchanges "Ami" and "Amy" and then changes to Ammy (Ah-me, [...]


    24. Great start to the series and filled in the blanks for me since I had read the later books first. Loved the Bloom family but dad is a little naive with barracuda Anita after him. She's a piece of work and has no redeeming qualities and Steve Bloom doesn't see it! How he doesn't see it is beyond me. Also his family believes family is everything and that they're always there for each other but she has a horrible relationship with her older daughter and her family.Love Good Hope and neighborliness [...]


    25. Great literature, this is not. However, it is a nice, easy read romance that is not overly filled with sex. I like the characters, both major and minor. A nice book to just relax to. I probably will read the rest of the series just because I like the characters, and I want to know what happens to them.


    26. A sweet Christmas romance story. I loved the small town environment, the flawed characters and the message of forgiveness in the book.I was sorry when the book was over. I wanted to stay in the town of Good Hope a little longer. I look forward to the next book in the series.I recommend this book to readers who like cozy stories, Christmas stories, romance.


    27. Really nice start to a sweet series, likeable characters and also some you love to hate! Loved watching the main characters stories grow, can’t wait to see where their stories lead as well as other characters along the way.
