REVIEW: The Knight Before Christmas by Marilyn Brant

Updated: Nov 22, 2019

Review by Christina Boyd

With a nod to Jane Austen’s masterpiece Emma, set in present day Minnesota, The Knight Before Christmas is an endearing holiday romance. When wildly successful Austin Knightley returns home to Crystal Corners to be closer to his family, he encounters his old high school friends and discovers past impressions are no longer the same...or are they?

Following the popular trope of enemies to lovers, Austin and the town’s sweetheart, Emma Westwood, are thrown together to create a huge gift presentation at the town’s Good Will Toward Men & Women Project holiday event. Chocked full of warm-hearted moments that will satisfy the holiday sweet tooth in all of us, make sure to add The Knight Before Christmas to your Wish list.

Rated Chaste for possible kissing and affection.
