This Christmas, she’s hoping for a miracle…
Twenty-five years ago, Jane Fallon put her rising career on hold to take over her family’s bookstore after the death of her father. Throughout the years, she’s transformed Angel Harbor Books into a place of comfort for her and her daughter, but when her landlord announces the building has been sold, Jane is faced with sudden uncertainty. If the bookstore is gone, what will she do?
As a young man, Dan Gallo couldn’t get out of Angel Harbor fast enough. Now a best-selling novelist, Dan returns home after a tragedy derails his career. His first stop is his favorite teenage hangout—the local bookstore. It’s almost exactly how he remembers it. But the girl who once worked there is now a beautiful woman whose smarts and spirit inspire him to write again, and open his heart to new possibilities.
With her world threatening to fall apart, Dan hopes that with the help of the town—and some Christmas magic—he can get Jane to see how important she is to the people of Angel Harbor...and him.
Poignant and Joyous
Gifted author Jeannie Moon swept me away to the quaint town of Angel Harbor in her newest book, Christmas in Angel Harbor. The town is the embodiment of small town life, especially at Christmas...it receives the gift of love through the presence of Jane and her generational book store, Harbor Books. With the quality of affection that transcends what one expects from small town life, her characters steal your heart through the tenderness they hold for Jane and her little store.
Entering back into Jane’s life after years of separation Dan, now a best selling author, brings the one kind of love that neither has found since they parted. The emotional journey they take to find what they lost is at the same time poignant and joyous.
There is one thing I have come to expect from the characters in each of Ms Moon’s books...no matter how many different storylines...they are all unique and have a depth of character not often found with other authors.
These are the types of characters who stay with you long after the stories have ended. I was also taken with the wry wit and humor threaded throughout the story...the quips between the myriad of characters were often laugh out loud hilarious...though they were subtle at the same time.
