As Bluestar Island prepares for a very special Christmas wedding, Santa’s sleigh crashes into The Lighthouse Café, reuniting Bluestar’s beloved waitress with her former fiancé.

In this holiday novella, Darla Evans has carved out a quiet life for herself as a waitress at The Lighthouse Café. Up until this point, she’s conveniently avoided the one man who shattered her heart and her dreams. But when a wedding draws him back to the island, she knows their meetup is unavoidable.

Tech entrepreneur William “Will” Campbell has returned to his childhood home to be the best man in his father’s wedding. But first his father has a very special task for him—to restore a sleigh in time for the wedding. However, there’s not much time until Christmas. He just might need some help.

As snowflakes cover the small town of Bluestar, Will and Darla work together to make it a very special holiday wedding. With the past looming between them, will the magic of the season open their hearts and allow them to find love again?

Includes a holiday recipe for Darla’s frosted sugar cookies!

My Thoughts:

Darla and Will haven't seen each other in years. Darla has been actively avoiding Will since he broke off their engagement in San Francisco. But Will's father is getting remarried and he has come back to Bluestar Island, much to Darla's dismay.

Will wants to make amends with Darla. They used to be good friends before they were a couple and he wants to be able to move on. Neither one of them have moved on and Will has never told Darla the real reason he decided to break off their engagement.

This Christmas and with the wedding, Will and Darla are teaming up to make his dad's wishes come true in a surprise for his soon to be wife. This puts Will and Darla together a lot and begins the slow melting of their hearts. Can they just be friends again or is the reason Will broke up with Darla too much for her or too much for him?

I enjoyed this wonderful, moving romance as these two come together to help others despite their own feelings. Their first meet after so many years was a bit funny and jaw dropping at the same time. This was a nice holiday read.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
