About this ebook

"The perfect holiday confection."—Booklist

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery comes a witty and heartfelt story of two friends who unexpectedly find the person-and the place in which-they belong this Christmas.

With twinkling humor and heartfelt Christmas spirit, two friends find love in a town called Wishing Tree…

Until Camryn Neff can return to her “real” life in Chicago, she’s in Wishing Tree to care for her twin sisters. She’s not looking for forever love, not here. But handsome hotelier Jake Crane is a temptation she can’t resist, so she suggests they pair up for the season. No golden rings, no broken hearts. At his side, she sees her hometown through Christmas-colored eyes. The cheer is cheerier, the joy more joyful. She thought she had put her future on hold…but maybe her real life was here all along, waiting for her to come home.

New in town, River Best is charmed by Wishing Tree’s homespun traditions and warmhearted people. When she’s crowned Snow Queen, she’s honored but wary. Dylan Tucker, her king, seems like the stuff of sugarplum dreams, but she can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something big. As they perform their “royal” duties—tasting cookies, lighting trees—Dylan’s good humor and melty kisses draw her to the brink of love. But she can’t let herself fall until she uncovers his secret, even if her lack of faith means losing him forever.

A return to Wishing Tree, and forever wishing I could transport myself to this magical town where anything is possible. What I give to be able to stroll around the wreath and participate in the Advent calendar and Tree of Christmas future. I loved the dual stories of Camryn and Jake and River and Dylan, though of course would have loved to dive into each a bit more. I always love how Mallery weaves in past and future characters into her stories, as when you fall in love with someone you know.

What a wonderful book!! Loved the reference to Painted Moon Wine. The characters in this book are people you immediately fall in love with. They are real people who make us feel everything they are going through. Susan does an amazing job making all her characters relatable. I also want to get wrapping paper from Carmen's shop, it sounds so beautiful. I have to say, Helen was the best, she will make you laugh out loud!!! She is someone to be admired and feared at the same time...lol. The problem was, I couldn't wait to finish, but was so disappointed when I reached the end of the book!! I wanted it to go on forever! Another amazing book!

Trust and romance collide in this newest Christmas Novel. Susan Mallery brings the holiday spirit to life, only to find distrust and loss issues. This is an amazingly good story, with heart felt and broken hearts along with a sweet little Tinsel to melt the hardest heart. Do not miss this one, it put me in the mood for some early holiday cheer.
