It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences - until one bad decision landed her in jail.
That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her - and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.

A cute and very suspenseful Christmas story. I would recommend reading book one first, while the story stands alone, there was obviously some back story that I had missed going into it that I missed out on.
Michael's long lost love, Shay, is back in town and seems to be in trouble. So, like any good romance hero, he sets off to save the day. But none of it goes as planned. He ends up in trouble himself and there are some really good secrets that come out at the end of the story. Debbie Mason drops just enough hints that I wasn't completely surprised, but it was still a great reveal when it happened.
Almost too short to get a lot of romance in, but the characters already have a history, so the connection was in place. They just needed to reconnect. They don't quite do that (just warning you), but I think it might be something that happens in a future book at some point.

Quick Character Introduction
Christmas with an Angel is a quick interlude to introduce us to future characters in Debbie Mason’s Harmony Harbor series. It is a fun, quick read, but there is little romance and definitely no happy for now. I enjoyed seeing more of Michael and Shay and look forward to their story. If you aren’t a fan of teasers, this is not a good choice for you. I have a feeling that it will be a good read before their book comes out, I don’t know when.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novella.
this is a clever little in-between novella to fuel interest
If you’ve read Mistletoe Cottage, this little novella will bring in some new information and start to set the scene for a new romance –but if you aren’t familiar with that book, you really do want to grab BOTH books.
Picking up where Mistletoe Cottage left off, it’s Michael’s turn to let off steam and get drunk – whinge to all your buddies drunk even if you are the one who changed your life plan from attorney to cop at the last minute, without feedback or consideration for your fiancé. So, she had her heart set on a high powered attorney, mover and shaker in the political arena – and he either never listened, or went along to get along – and it’s over.
Then we have his ex-girlfriend, one he knows he treated badly years ago, and owes her an apology. Thing is, she’s always been around one on the wrong side of the law with her father, and she’s got history. Lots of it. But the attraction is still there….even if they are so different.
Clever plotting and plenty of interaction to show these two as the second chance couple that might be. And this will be a fun one – their interactions are clever, sharp and the attraction between them is steamy and tense. Perfect set up, and reads just like a long prologue to a longer and more complex (and telling) story. Best read by those who have the background from Mistletoe Cottage, this is a clever little in-between novella to fuel interest in the upcoming Starlight Bridge.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
