Holly Jolly Christmas Derailed by Emily Bradford My Review


About the book 

Tis the season to beat my fierce new competitor. `Tis NOT the season to fall in love with him.


After letting my heart run wild in the wrong direction last year, I moved home to help revive my family’s struggling train business.

Everything would’ve been fine if Harrison hadn’t rolled into town with his shiny stallion of a steam train and started using my train depot. Now, ticket sales for my Santa Express ride are plummeting.

Sure, he’s handsome and charming and his smile-crinkled eyes rev my heart into high gear, but I’m determined to outsmart him and his sneaky marketing tactics.

Because falling for Harrison would squash my train company’s dwindling chance of survival.


This Christmas, my to-do list stretches from here to the North Pole. You know what’s not on that list? Falling in love.

Except ever since I met Claire, I’m questioning all my well-laid plans. I didn’t expect to become so attracted to a woman right after I moved here. She is stunningly beautiful and her sizzling kisses heat up the coldest of December days.

But my new business venture in White Rock requires all my attention, which means now isn’t the right time for a serious relationship. First I have to prove I’m capable of running the train business. Then, someday, I’ll focus on love.

Because getting sidetracked from my career could lead to another absolute, complete failure.

If you love sweet romantic comedies with lots of laughs and equal shares of heart and heat without explicit content, you’ll love Emily Bradford’s Holly Jolly Christmas Derailed.

And I thought 

From the jingle bells to the sweet Happy Ending Holly Jolly Christmas Derailed will warm your heart and make you giggle.  

I wish I could really tell you my favorite part but it would give away too much.  But I will tell you it was when Claire realized Harrison wasn't the reporter she hoped would be writing a positive review and the Santa Express ride her family owned and operated.   

The scene made me laugh and gasp at the same time. 

I have read other books that I thought were Hallmark Movie worthy.  Well hello Hallmark check out Holly Jolly Christmas Derailed.  

Along with the giggles author Emily Bradford gives the reader a fun and likeable cast of characters. 

Of course the main characters Claire and Harrison drawn you in.  But they are supposed to . . . 


Claires best friend and fellow Elf enchanted me.   I wanted to have dinner with Claire's parents.  Even the depot owner Doyle and his wife are fun that make you want to visit their little town. 

I could see a whole series of fun Sweet Romances set in White Rock around.  

I received a complimentary copy from the author.  

I was not asked to write a positive to review. 

My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads.
