    • 4 - "I don't know why it's you and I wish like hell it wasn't." Stars!I really enjoyed Three Nights before Christmas, it is always a pleasure to return to the town of Marietta, Montana and it’s inhabitants, and Kat Latham, gave Austin and Lacey and absolutely stellar story for me to sink my teeth into.I think what made this little novella such a treat is the fact that it was quite unusual in its tropes, the ex-con and the man who helped send her to jail falling in love, over the rebuilding of [...]


    • Looking for some holiday fun, check out Three Nights before Christmas.Lacey is a recent parole, thrust back into a life she was ripped from 3 years prior. The man who was the catalyst behind her incarceration doesn’t think he can trust her but needs her train expertise to make a Christmas wish come true.This is a slow building romance, with lots of character growth and mutual appreciation.I have to admit, I was a little reluctant about an ex-con falling in love with the lawman storyline but La [...]


    • Three Nights Before Christmas by Kat Latham is a 2015 Tule publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Don't let the holiday season pass by without reading this book! Lacey has just been released from prison for a crime she committed unwittingly. But, the evidence was compelling, and her own boyfriend testified against her. Now three years later, Lacey is home, helping her brother with his Christmas tree business, when she comes face to face with Austin, the [...]


    • Just getting out of prison on parole right before Thanksgiving, Lacey Gallagher returns to her brother's home and the family Christmas tree farm ready to get her life back. Too bad she encounters the man who arrested her and he's as disdainful of her as ever.Austin Wilder wasn't prepared to encounter the woman he arrested for transporting drugs and being a huge part of a drug ring. She looks harder and wary, but she's also the only one he knows who can get the steam locomotive up and running in [...]


    • Lacey Gallagher has finally been released from prison after being convicted of a crime she didn't really know she was involved in. Lacey had been an train engineer and got caught up with the wrong man. Her boyfriend had used her to traffic drugs but being caught with the package she couldn't convince a jury she hadn't known what was going on and her boyfriend Dave had testified it had all been her idea. Austin Wilder was the officer that had arrested Lacey three years ago. When he runs into her [...]


    • Some spoilersDNF. Sorry, I just can't get past the description of the heroine who sounds like an old hag:"She’d certainly gained weight, and not in an I spent all my time in the prison yard pumping iron sort of way. Fine lines bracketed her wide mouth, and strands of premature gray hair glittered among the dark brown ones. Her eyebrows were thick and rough, and her gaze grew harder as he stared her down."UPDATE: finished 17/07/2017Ok, here's the deal. Overall, while this is not a literary mast [...]


    • This was kind of difficult to review, because I absolutely loved it and I want to make sure I explain exactly why. It is set in Montana right before Christmas, but it's about so much more than just the holidays. It's feels very realistic and gritty about someone who just served three years in prison for a crime she swears she was innocent of but who toughed it out and now just wants to get on with her life. In some ways she's much stronger, but she's also pretty jaded, knowing she can't ever go [...]


    • 2015 has seen Kat Latham become one of my go-to authors. I just know that when I pick one of her books up I’m not going to be left disappointed and Three Nights Before Christmas reinforces this.I have to say I wasn’t quite sure how a romance between Lacey Gallagher and Austin Wilder would work; after all he played a part in her ending up spending three miserable years in prison, how do you go from that to lovers? But Kat Latham did make it work and crafted a wonderful festive romance focusin [...]


    • I adore this book. It is so thoughtful. Our heroine was a train engineer. My love of trains can't be understated so I completely get her train love. And this thing she loved was taken away from here when she was implicated in drug smuggling. She is coming home to her family christmas tree farm after serving her sentence. She readjusting. The hero is the ranger who arrested her. But he needs her to help fix a train. And then she gets to know her. I love the heroine sexual agency. I love the hero' [...]


    • I liked this! I wasn't sure I wanted to read it because ex-con and the guy who arrested her didn't seem up my alley, but it got enough reviews that I decided to give it a try. It dealt with that issue well enough. And I do like Latham's characters.



    • This book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review. My review is below.OK - I admit it. I cried a bit over this story, in a totally good way. It didn't blow me away, but it was more than solid in its emotional strength. I'd say this year's crop of Christmas stories out of the Montana Born books got started with a winner.Lacey has just gotten out of prison, three years for drug dealing. It's been a hard road, especially for a woman who swears she's not a drug dealer. But she's home no [...]


    • 3.5 stars -- After reading His Christmas Gift by Sarah Mayberry, I knew I wanted to read the companion story about Sawyer's sister, Lacey. And it was a steamy, quick holiday read! I loved the premise of the book -- an ex-con (if wrongly convicted) being released after 3 years in prison, and her developing relationship with one of the officers who helped put her away. I had a bit of a problem with how their relationship started -- I guess b/c Lacey was already having hot sweaty dreams about Austi [...]


    • If you're looking for a fun, and sexy, holiday romance with an interesting heroine and set up, look no further than Three Nights Before Christmas! Also, why haven't I read Latham before? I know I have one or two on my Kindle, unread, and I also know that Kame loves her books. After enjoying this one so much, you better believe I'm looking forward to reading her other novels, too.Lacey made some mistakes and trusted the wrong guy, which lead to her being arrested and sentenced for a drug-bust thr [...]


    • Nominated for a 2016 RITA Award in the category Contemporary Romance: Short! Lacey and Austin have a pretty unpleasant history. He was the arresting officer in a drug case that Lacey inadvertently was involved in due to her relationship with the man in charge. Imprisoned for three years, she's finally free to try to pick up the pieces of her once thriving life. Working at her family's tree farm with her brother is a chance to rebuild, but for one reason or another Austin seems to always be aroun [...]


    • I really enjoyed this Christmas romance about unexpected love and second chances.The main characters are unique and do not have a positive past experience. I liked how Kat brought them together was instantaneous, it was a slow growth of a relationship that neither expected to go anywhere! There are no secrets between Lacey and Austin. What starts off as distrust, unease soon morphs into something much more positive when Austin needs Lacey's help to restore the old steam train. The unanticipated [...]


    • This was really good! I didn't think I would like this as much as I did based on the summary, but it was excellent! I loved Lacey so much and I felt for her and how stupid she must've felt to be used by her ex and pay the ultimate price for it. I love that at least at first it was really a story about HER and her trying to get used to a life outside of prison, and that the romance only started somewhat later. I loved the romcom trope that was a play on one of my favorites ((view spoiler)[Oh, our [...]


    • **I received this book as an ARC through Tule Publishing via NetGalley. In return I will give my honest review**First of all let me say I absolutely loved this book!! Couldn't put it down, went home after 12 hours of work and had to finish this book! I did not read any other books in this series but now I will. Very well written book with excellent character development. Lacey had such a rough past. I felt sorry for her but she is a fighter. Very strong woman absolutely loved her character. Alon [...]


    • **ARC given in exchange for an honest review**If your looking for a great festive read then look no further than Three Nights Before Christmas.Lacey has recently been released from prison after doing nothing more than falling for the wrong guy and paying a heavy price for it. She back at her families Christmas Tree Farm with her brother hoping to pick up the pieces of her life.Austin is the police officer that arrested Lacey during a stake out then testified against her in court. When fate bring [...]


    • I enjoyed this quite a bit. It is wildly rushed in the last few chapters--the novella problem strikes again--but up until that point, it was a great read. If it were a novel, I'd give it three stars but I'm bumping it up because almost all novellas seem rushed to me.


    • Not just your normal holiday read! A gripping, emotional read that grabs your heart. Lacey and Austin's story keeps you turning the pages. This is one I'll read again and againI received an ARC from the Publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.



    • I liked this a lot. Ex-con heroine who was a train engineer before she was convicted? Awesome. And Austin is the forest ranger who arrested her. They have a bumpy road. Lacey is super prickly and it's awesome to behold.I did have questions about the letter at the end, though. It seems like Austin should've had to state, in no uncertain terms, his relationship to Lacey and that could've changed the outcome.


    • Read and reviewed for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge!I've slowly been dipping my toe in the contemporary romance pool, and I've read another Kat Latham novella before, so I felt safe taking this one on to review! Plus the idea of a railroad engineer heroine and a park ranger hero (one of my high school dream jobs!) made Three Nights Before Christmas even more intriguing. Spoilers full steam ahead! (train pun #1)The book opens with Lacey starting her very last hours in prison. In just a [...]


    • 3.75 starsAbout the book: Release date October 24, 2015Have yourself a steamy little Christmas… After three years in prison, freight train engineer Lacey Gallagher doesn’t expect this Christmas to be very merry and bright. At least chopping down trees for her brother’s Christmas tree farm will help her save money to get her life back on track. All her plans derail, though, when her new job puts her in territory patrolled by the man who haunts her dreams—the forest ranger who sent her to [...]


    • First reviewed at Keeper BookshelfHow could loving someone, trusting someone turn a person’s life so horribly wrong? At this point, Lacey didn’t have any better answer than she’d had three years ago when she’d heard the doors of her prison cell close behind her. She’d ended up here by trusting and loving a man who’d used her, lied about her under oath. Yeah, guess that did mean she was criminally stupid just like the arresting officer had said. Only he believed she was as guilty as s [...]


    • Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Tule Publishing in exchange for an honest review.I've read almost every book written by Kat Latham, and while I've enjoyed every single one of them, I must confess that her latest release, Three Nights Before Christmas, has become my favorite. Beautiful written, Lacey Gallagher and Austin Wilder's story about finding love and redemption was haunting but hopeful. It highlights the things that the Christmas season [...]


    • I received this book in exchange for a honest review.Freight train engineer Lacey Gallagher trusted the wrong man more than three years ago and she has paid a big price for it. She was send to prison. Now after three years in prison Lacey is going home. Home, being the family Christmas tree farm where her brother lives and works.

    • Review originally posted at The BookpushersAn ex-convict heroine really grabbed my attention when I read the blurb for this festive romance. Then freight train driver really had me going, ‘this I must read’. Three Nights Before Christmas was an enjoyable read with an engaging heroine in Lacey, who had her life ruined by falling in love with the wrong man and being betrayed in the most awful way. But while I enjoyed the characters, setting and premise, I did have an issue with the beginning o [...]


    • Lacey Gallagher had a dream world - loving family, incredible job of driving trains and a semi-decent boyfriend. Or so she thought, but then it all came crashing down several years ago when she was arrested by Forest Service Officer Austin Wilder for drug dealing. She claimed she was innocent but no one believed her, especially Austin after all wasn't her "boyfriend" Dave Duggar testifying she was the mastermind behind the whole thing?Finally released after only 3 years of prison, Lacey knew she [...]
