This is a lovely story about how first love that is lost doesnt have to stay lost forever.
Penelope is a single mum to a little boy called Max. Its christmas eve and their plane has to land as the weather is too bad to carry on, so they are stranded in a little airport until it clears.
Also stranded in the same airport is Artemis Warren.
Penelope and Artemis were childhood sweethearts but a misunderstanding caused them to part.
Now 6 years later they are stuck together in a small place. Both holdong secrets that could either destroy each other or bring them back together.
Can they get over all the pain and secrets of the past or is it too late to rebuild the past.
Holiday Terminal by Gwyn McNamee and Christy Anderson is a short and sweet little Christmas read that is full with emotion. On the flight home for Christmas Penelope, Max (her son), and Jolynn (her mom), are forced to land their plan in a very small town because of a snow storm. Unfortunately, fate would have it that her ex from years ago, Artemis Warren was also forced to land at the same tiny airport. The separate worlds of the two of them collide again, only this time there are a lot of scars and secrets… big secrets… secrets that could change both of their lives in a major way. The secret is soon revealed and so it begins the back and forth of the emotional pull between the two.
This book was delightfully pleasant. There was so much emotion packed in to this book and the character were very favorable. The story-line was great and I got the ending that I had hoped for all along. This is a quick read that would be perfect by a day spend by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate.
Holiday Terminal: (A Second Chance Secret Baby Billionaire Holiday Romance) by Gwyn McNamee and Christy Anderson was the first Christmas book of the year for me and almost got my grinchy heart into the spirit.
I have read most of Ms. McNamee’s books and wasn’t sure what to expect with a collaboration, especially with an author I have only recently discovered but I throughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by these two ladies in the future.
Max stole my heart from the very beginning of the book and didn’t let go, there was just something about that little boy that grabbed me.
Though there were some issues between Penelope and Artemis, there wasn’t the heavy drama like there could have been which made me enjoy it that much more.
Holiday Terminal by Gwyn McNamee & Christy Anderson was a fun second chance romantic read. I would give this book a four out of five stars. I found the story well written and the holiday time frame made it super emotional. This was a quick read and definitely got me in love your family mood. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. I was happy with the ending and cannot wait for more!
If ever there was a book I could ask to be written it would be this one because not only is it co-written by one of my favourite authors but it is also a holiday time story – my all-time favourite time of year! I was so excited to get my hands on this story and I wasn’t disappointed at all! I loved every second of it! Ok so maybe the story was a little predictable but I didn’t care at all!!! I loved the setting for the story and I loved the characters. In my opinion this is the perfect Christmas read that gives you all the feels! The writing as I expected was brilliant and it was hard to tell that it was written by two authors, their writing styles blended together seamlessly.
I 100% recommend the Holiday Terminal was a wonderful romantic and heart-warming read for this holiday season!
Holiday Terminal is a Christmas-themed romance that sees two ex-lovers get a second chance of happiness. As a huge fan of the authors already, I was super excited to get started on this. I was also hoping it would get me into the Christmas spirit and I can safely say that it has!
Penelope Barnes and Artemis Warren could not be more different. A small-town girl and a city boy, they were thrust together during a hot summer neither of them would ever forget. We got to learn about their past through short flashbacks and, while there wasn’t many of them, it was the perfect amount for us to understand just how deeply they had cared about each other. Learning about the Warren family was fun, but it was the love and support Penelope’s parents have showed her that I enjoyed so much. The Warren family are not the kind you want to be part of, so I was screaming at Artemis to finally get the guts to step away from a life he hates leading.
Seeing Penelope and Artemis together after so many years apart was fun. There was so much back-and-forth that it keeps you guessing until the very end. There is a huge plot element that I can’t discuss (because it is a big spoiler!) but I absolutely loved how endearing it was. It is the perfect Christmassy read as family is such a strong theme. Another thing I loved was the wintery setting, especially all the snow! Being stuck in a desolate airport terminal on Christmas Day sounds awful, but this book made me want it to happen to me!
I absolutely loved this and will definitely be recommending it. It is the perfect short read to get you in the Christmas spirit and its left me hungry for more festive reads!

Holiday Terminal by Gwyn McNamee & Christy Anderson
5 +++++++ Stars
Holy Buckets I loved this book! I did not want it to end. Gwyn Mcnamee is an automatic for me and is already on my favorites list. This is my first time reading Christy Anderson and I’ve already pulled her books up so I can read more. These two wrote this story in a way you have no idea who wrote what because it all flows together so perfectly.
This was a different story for a few reasons, one being that most of the story took place in one night and in one place and in my opinion this could be a Christmas Movie on that channel that does the countdown to Christmas every year. I felt like I was right there and could see the beauty outside the windows and actually hear the vending machines dropping the treats. It had my emotions all over the place and Max won my heart right from the start.
The misunderstandings that caused years of loneliness and secrets for both Art and Pen had me wanting to shake both of them but the way this story was told and unfolded made it perfect and I truly want more… I can not wait for the next in this series, while I was reading all I could think of was I hope Archie gets his own story and book I get to the end and find out he is next, so now I’ll hope that just maybe we will get to know Athena as well!
Loved this and can’t recommend it enough. These two authors make an awesome team and I hope we get much more from them in the future!
Holy holly berries! This book is amazeballs! Yes I said amazeballs, because really that is the only word my brain can produce after the way this book left me in my feels and reeling with the need for more. First of all we have Gwyn McNamee and Christy Anderson teaming up and honestly I need more of this in my life! These two are explosive authors on their own, so seeing them team up is one heck of an explosion that I will never get enough of, bring on more! Follow that up with the perfect amount of holiday cheer, romance, and angst, and you have the makings of a fabulous holiday read that you will devour over and over again this holiday season. I am seriously sincere folks, this book should be made into a movie, more along the speed of Lifetime than Hallmark but a movie nonetheless.
Imagine being stranded in the middle of nowhere with a blizzard raging around you and the company you have to keep is your ex that you just can’t seem to figure out how to communicate with. This book brings you just that. Art and Pen are thrust together with all their chaos and mess and forced to face the cold hard facts. They have a sizzle that will set you hair on end and your feels on fire. I absolutely adored these two was cheering for them to find that happily ever after with the magic of Christmas cheering them on. I know there are a few moments where I also wanted to reach through my kindle screen and strangle them but it made sitting on the edge of my seat that much more desirable. I can’t wait to find out what the next novel will bring but I sure know I will be pre-ordering that sucker as fast as my finger can click. I hope this book brings you as much magic and joy this holiday season as it has for me! Happy reading!
