“Heartfelt and delightful!” -RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author
Romance writer Julia Landon knows how to write a happily-ever-after. Creating one for herself is a whole different story. But after a surprising–and surprisingly passionate–kiss under the mistletoe at Harmony Harbor’s holiday party last year, Julia thought she might have finally found her very own chance at true love. Until she learns her Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broodingly Handsome has sworn off relationships. Well, if she can’t have him in real life, Julia knows just how to get the next best thing….
Aidan’s only priority is to be the best single dad ever. And this year, he plans to make the holidays magical for his little girl, Ella Rose. But visions of stolen kisses under the mistletoe keep dancing in his head, and when he finds out Julia has written him into her latest novel, he can’t help imagining the possibilities of a future together. Little does he know, though, Julia has been keeping a secret that threatens all their dreams. Luckily, ’tis the season for a little Christmas magic.

Christmas with an Angel (short story) Starlight Bridge Primrose Lane Sugarplum Way Driftwood Cove Sandpiper Shore
Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason is for all fans of romantic Hallmark films. This story is sweet, entertaining, and charming. The cast of characters made for an interesting read. I loved how the female protagonist got carried away with writing her romance tales. These tales were inspired by her crush. A crush who has no intention of having a relationship. Yet he can’t stop thinking about their very brief kiss. And neither can the leading lady.
I also liked the fact that, Julia Landon, loves Christmas time. Her obsession with Christmas is cute and a bit overwhelming. It made me smile. Julia Landon’s love life is non-existent. Something happened with her ex and now she’s a single lady. One who dreams of a particular sexy annoying man.
Aidan is a single father. His goal is to be everything his daughter needs. That means no other women in his life but his daughter. However, the one kiss he shared with a particular woman has him wondering. Could he have both?
Family, love, Christmas spirit and new beginnings are found here. I enjoyed following the characters as they failed and succeeded at things. Every page a dash of humor, intrigue, and heartfelt moments. I loved it.
