Wesley Adams is on the fast track to be an assistant vice president at his financial firm in Manhattan. Before the promotion is announced, he’s sent to this small town from his past to do an analysis of the candle company.

My Thoughts:

If you are looking for a little Christmas in July, look no further than Christmas in Bayberry. And if you adore Hallmark movies, you will enjoy this story from Hallmark Publishing.

What I liked was that more than one of the movies, we get more depth into the story and the character's lives. This is a story about a candle factory, which is very old and started the town, and it is in financial trouble. This company has stayed in Kate's family it's entire existence and she loves it. Now Kate has dreams and the Bayberry Candle Company is at the very top. She knows business isn't doing well, but not how bad it really is.

Kate's Aunt Penney hires a business analyst, Wesley Adams to find out exactly what kind of future the candle company has. I will say I was a little irritated that Kate was kept out of the loop and her aunt really wouldn't discuss these matters with her. I realized her aunt thought she was doing what was best but those secrets just didn't really sit well with me.

Wes is no stranger to Bayberry or Kate herself. He lived their briefly when he was younger and he had a mighty big crush on Kate. But Wes is focused on making it big in his company so he try's to stay all business. Unfortunately, this little town and its cheer, the big hearted people, and Kate draws him into the small town life and out of his comfort zone.

As Wes and Kate navigate business and their attraction to each other grows, both of their dreams become at risk. Finding out what is most important to each other made this heartwarming story a welcome read.
