Fall in love this holiday season with this heartwarming story about finding romance, the magic of Christmas, and the importance of family...
Children's bookstore owner Addie Mayberry believes in the magic of Christmas. Or at least, she used to. So when a young customer needs some seasonal optimism, Addie sets out to give the vulnerable, heartbroken little girl the best Christmas ever. Which means helping the hottest man in Shadow Creek, Bella's surgeon father, find his holiday spirit. Addie's up to the challenge, but between tree decorating and late night talks, she realizes she's starting to fall hard for the one man she definitely shouldn't.
Drew Barrett drastically changed his fast-paced life when he moved back to Shadow Creek, but it was all worth it to give his daughter a better life. He wasn't exactly winning dad-of-the-year awards before, so he's determined to make it up to Bella. And with Addie's help, he's slowly repairing his relationship with his daughter. The last thing he wants is to fall in love, since that road only leads to pain, but he can't stop thinking about Addie. Not only is she gorgeous, sweet, and great with Bella, she fills something in him he never knew was missing. But Addie wants forever, which is more than Drew can offer...

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was such an adorable story. I totally fell in love with Isabella (Bella) Drew's little girl. She was so wise beyond her years. Drew and Addie were wonderful as well. Drew had a few hang-up but his former wife cheated on him and left him. Both were successful and basically ignored their daughter in a quest for their careers. He being a highly respectable and competent surgeon. He believed he was sacrificing his family life to save others. It is only after Bella comes to live with him full-time does he really see that he was truly hurting his little girl. Addie on the other hand is perfect. She has a few self-esteem issues stemming from high school and her Mom. She is someone that is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.
Drew's and Addie's journey is a great story to read. I was immediately enthralled by the story and how it all unfolded. It played out like watching a Hallmark Movie. The plot was so well done that I was sorry that it ended!
This book was written in my favorite dual POV format. It was very helpful especially when reading Drew's POV to understand why he did and said some things.
I highly recommend this story to anyone. It is so adorable you won't want to miss it.
The doctor comes home
When Drew’s ex-wife tells him she doesn’t want to have joint custody of their daughter, Bella, anymore, he moves back to his childhood home. He’s making Bella his number one priority. When Drew first meets Addie, he’s attracted to her, but he doesn’t have time for any other females. No spoilers, so grab your copy and see what happens. Victoria James I really hope there will be more books in this series. We have several people that need their stories told. Finn, Melody, Faith hint, hint.
