Contractor Brady Buchanon can't wait to surprise single mom Abby Webster with his company's Christmas home makeover prize.
But once he does, the struggling waitress turns him down flat!
Raised in foster care, Abby won't accept charity. Yet when her dilapidated porch almost injures her daughter, Abby finally agrees to Brady's offer.
As the hardworking bachelor pushes to finish the house in time for Christmas, he starts falling for Abby and her little girl.
With the holidays in sight, Brady wonders if Abby will not only accept her beautiful new home, but also his wish to make her his wife…
A heartwarming and delightful story about the meaning of Christmas, and the importance of a family and support around us.
There's so much to like in this story, first the Buchanon family, the support they give to each other, their generosity and kindness is admirable.
Lila, Abby's daughter, is the little angel, and a sunlight to anyone around her. Her sweet spirit, and happy smiles, how she endures all that she has to because of her disability. I love her. It's not possible not to.
Abby might come off as a stubborn, prideful, and too independent, but she has a good reason, her childhood, to be the way she is and not to trust people around her. She works so hard to provide to Lila, and to be the best mom she can be. With everything she has gone through, no wonder if she has some self esteem issues.
Brady has so much on his plate, helping to run the family company, the recent vandalism on the job sites, but he loves Christmas, and his favorite thing is the makeover. This year, it's different than before, it is personal, and there's something about Abby and Lila, that he just can't stay away from them.
This story hit me straight to the heart, it has so much warmth, kindness, and loving care for each other in it. It is the perfect Christmas story, with the reason for the season highlighted, and made clear. I liked how the story unfolded over time, nothing happened too fast, yet, it still didn't seem to move slowly. It puts a smile on my face, and gave all warm and fuzzy feelings, make me look forward to the holidays coming up. Inspiring story filled with joy!
