Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

Christmas bells are ringing, and love is in the air in the lovely town of Dickens. As young mayor Elizabeth McKenzie takes up the role of officiating at a wedding for two of her favorite residents, she finds herself drawn to a charming wedding guest—an Army officer who threatens to distract her from her official duties. Daniel Murray, who is a soldier and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine for the US Army, considers leaving the military but wonders if he is ready to accept a new, less challenging life. However, the vibrant and beautiful mayor of Dickens that he keeps bumping into makes settling down a more appealing option. Will love find a way into the hearts of two attractive and single strangers brought together by a wedding in Dickens? Find out in Kathryn Hills' exciting, sparkling, and highly engaging romance: Gavel and Garland.

Gavel and Garland is the type of book that keeps you up at night and prompts you to leave every other thing until you're done reading. Once I got a taste of the ultra-cute and appealing narrative from the first few pages, I had to get to the end of the story and see if the two protagonists would finally end up together. The book's characters are described with such peculiar traits that they are quite hard to forget—like Daniel, who has a weird habit of giving nicknames to everyone he knows. Kathryn Hills' picturesque descriptions immersed me fully in the glittering and cheerful atmosphere of the story. Gavel and Garland would appeal to all romance fans—especially romantic stories that are set in a cozy, friendly town filled with the magic of Christmas.
