My summary: Reagan just hasn't been the same since her husband passed away two Christmases ago. Now she dreads Christmas, snow, ice skating, and even denies her children a Christmas tree. Every aspect of Christmas reminds her of her loss. Then one night she makes a Christmas wish for happiness. A wish that results in one handsome yet mysterious man appearing at her front door.
My say: Who hasn't wished on a star, fountain, or snow? I still do. This is a sugary sweet love story about a woman who must learn to let go and see the blessings she has before her. Overall I enjoyed the concept, writing story, and strong start, but felt it could have been shortened or fleshed out a bit more. However, don't let that deter you. This story is like Christmas candy; perfect when you are in the mood for a yuletide flavored sugar rush.
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Kiddie-o-meter: While the desire for sexual intimacy is present this novel remains rather chaste and contains no foul language.
"No. I didn't respond to an ad," he told her, watching as her eyes darkened and her body tensed.
"Then why are you here?" Her voice was now cool and low.
"I'm here because you wished for me." He winced when he spoke the words. He had a feeling that Reagan was not about to believe in magical wishes.
My final say:
What would you wish for if you could wish for anything this Christmas (material or otherwise) ?
