A California Christmas is the 7th book in the Silver Springs series by Brenda Novak. I’ve really enjoyed reading many of Novak’s hoiday tales in the past but A California Christmas fell flate for me. Generally, when a holiday tale comes along in the series the author gives you enough back story about others surrounding the main characters, or even the main characters themselves. I found myself getting annoyed because the author assumed I knew things that I did not SO, with that said, I wouldn’t recommend this book unless you’ve read the others in the series. That said, and this is such a personal quirk, I cannot read and engage with any character named “Dallas.” Seriously, that’s a great name for a city and it’s a great porn name but it is not a great name for a character who doesn’t work for the Chippendales. This one was not for me.
