Review - ‘Caribbean Christmas’ by Tammy Tate


Blurb 

As a real estate agent in the Virgin Islands, Kendra Dawson enjoys summer all year around with beautiful Caribbean waves and white sandy shoreline just outside her condo. Although living next door to the handsome and successful Richard McNeil with only an occasional nod or one-word greeting has been exasperating. Finally, three weeks before Christmas they ride the elevator to their sixth-floor and after a brief conversation a relationship starts to blossom. Now that she’s fallen in love with him, she must debunk the rumor that could prevent them from being anything but friends. 
Richard accompanies her to New Orleans after she discovers that her long lost uncle, who she hasn’t seen since she was four, has passed away. To comply with his will, she and her mother must stay the weekend at his haunted estate. 
Who knew her witty but ghostly Uncle Morgan would be lurking in the shadows? 

Review 

Kendra and Richard have been next door neighbors in a ritzy condo for the past two years. They’ve barely spoken until a chance encounter on the elevator. Their relationship develops quickly but stays sweet. When her uncle dies, Kendra and her mom go New Orleans to hear the reading of the Will. Richard and their two friends, Becky and Mitch, go too. They soon meet a shady lawyer and learn they have to stay overnight for two nights in Uncle Morgan’s supposedly haunted house for a large sum of money.
This isn’t your average Christmas romance. I love the paranormal twists and Kendra’s friendship with Becky. Richard has an English accent—love men with accents—and he’s really down to earth despite his wealth. All the characters seemed believable and the mysterious haunted house plotline really drew me in. This is a great book!
