Single mother Sabrina Gervais has built a happy life with her daughter Charlotte in their eastern Long Island hometown of Holly Point. Having Charlie meant putting some of her own dreams on hold, but Sabrina is content to surround herself with family and friends, safe from the realities of the outside world. She had enough of that when the man she loved broke her heart.
Jake Killen’s career in professional hockey has brought him many rewards on and off the ice, but returning to New York brings back a flood of memories. When he sees Sabrina again, he discovers that he didn’t just away from her ten years ago, but also from their unborn child. Struggling with anger, guilt, and chemistry that’s off the chart, Sabrina and Jake wonder if they can find love again and, this Christmas, make all their wishes come true.
This title is so full of Christmas magic, it took my breath away!
A fantastic, romantic story about first love, second chances, and yes, Christmas magic.
The romance is sensual, the connection between Sabrina and Jake is tangible and miraculous. Even with all the years, hurt, and damage done to their relationship in the past between them, they manage to find the affection and fondness towards each other again. And it is beautiful.
But Charlie, their daughter, takes the cake. Part of the story is told from her point of view, and it is just so touching to read the thoughts, hopes, wishes, and faith of the nine year old, that I recommend to get your tissues close by. And to see Sabrina and Jake work so hard to get past all the animosity, to be such awesome, loving, caring parents, is just amazing.
So like I said, a story full of incredible Christmas magic
