Kristin Holt is an inspirational and historical romance fiction author who has said that there is nothing she likes better than writing and reading sweet romances.

However, the one thing that differentiates her fiction work from those of her contemporaries is that she sets hers in the American West during the Victorian times of the 19th century.
As such, she will treat you to small-town romances, the Old West, posses, mining towns, marshals, ranches, bandits, farms, lady doctors, dairies, lady lawyers, and mail orders brides.
Outside of her writing, she has four adult kids none of which has deemed her worthy of a grandchild even though there is nothing she wants more.

She has been married to her husband whom she met in high school and married when she was 21 for more than three decades now.

While she has now achieved a lot of success as an author, she is a Certified Childbirth Educator and Registered Nurse specializing in Delivery and Labor.
She no longer works in medicine but still has an active license, even if she prefers working as an author.

Unlike many of her contemporaries, Kristin Holt never knew that she had been born or called to write.

Still, she used to enter all manner of writing contests while she was in middle school and high school and even got a placement in a poetry contest. In fact, her mother still has several mementos from that time that she keeps in a hardbound cover.
Her love for storytelling and reading was born from the fact that her parents loved to regularly read to her the likes of Madeline L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and Florence Laughlin’s “The Little Leftover Witch.”
It was from this that she developed a love for history and the many memorable events in the history of the US.

Kristin would then gravitate toward historical romances which she used to learn history as she did not like the AP History classes taught in high school.
Ultimately, she went to college but did not think that she could make a career in writing. She would study nursing and become a Registered Nurse.
Holt would then spend several years working as a delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a fiction author.

It was during her time working as a nurse that Kirstin Holt felt that she needed to pen her own fiction works. During the many years of reading romances, she had found many friends that were just as interested in writing.
Encouraging each other, they joined critique groups, took part in writing classes from writers that had made it, and spent hours learning how to write and publish.

Since fiction books had often provided some positive impact on Holt right from her youth, she felt that God had granted her a message she needed to deliver. Right about the time her last kid was born, she decided to get started writing.
As a mother of three daughters, she wanted to write works of fiction that would not only provide inspiration to her daughters but also guide them when it came to romantic love.

She published Home for Christmas her first novel and the debut novel of the Holidays in Mountain Home series in 2013 and has never looked back since.

Kristin Holt’s novel “Home for Christmas” is a sweet work that shows how what one may think is the worst thing may turn out to be the best thing.

For Miranda, this came in the form of being left at the altar a few years back without knowing what she had done wrong. For about three years, she avoided her friends and family as she suffered from the pity and gossip that followed her misfortune.
She left her hometown and went to Denver where she worked with an elderly spinster until she died. Missing her family, she thinks that it is time she paid them a visit since she has some time before she starts her new job.
Miranda believes it is time to move on with her life and put some of her old ghosts to rest. Resigned to a life living as a spinster, she reconnects with her former to-be brother-in-law who becomes one of her friends.
But what she does not know is that Hunter had been in love with her for years. Will he have the opportunity to convince her of his love or will they be doomed to remain single forever?
It makes for a beautiful love story that will have your tears flowing and your heart melting.

“Maybe This Christmas” by Kristin Holt is another thrilling romance fiction work in the “Holidays Mountain Home” series.

The lead is Luke Finlay who cannot wait for Effie O’Leary to finish mourning her dead husband so that he can court her.

He had not been in any kind of hurry until a man named August Rose who was her former boyfriend from her youth comes to Mountain Home.

Effie is not sure if Gus is still sweet about her or if he has come to town to investigate her on some criminal allegations. Either way, his arrival results in all sorts of unintended consequences.
The two men seem to have made the decision that Effie is a prize that they need to compete for and the fierce fight for her leaves her torn.

She had just come from a horrible marriage and is still not so sure if she wants to get into another romantic relationship.

However, Gus and Luke can be very persuasive and intend to show her that she needs to open her heart to love particularly since it is Christmas time.
It is a funny and good read twitch a wonderfully flowing story that will keep you turning the pages with its brilliant turns and twists.

Kristin Holt’s novel “The Marshal’s Surrender” is the story of Marshal Gus Rose, a determined man with a strong personality, who is outspoken and has a single-minded focus.
What he wants is a strong woman who will complement his life as he cements himself as a town sheriff.

In the recent past, an unknown group has been committing some horrible crimes and now they are targeting Noelle, who happens to be the sister of the man that got married to Gus’s ex.

As such, he avoids her like most of her friends and family since it is still awkward and painful. She happens to be an adventurous, smart, and risk-taking woman who nonetheless seeks after Gus.
It is a well-told story in a wintery setting that provides the perfect Christmas feeling.
