~*~Melissa and her son need a new start. Jim wants a second chance. The past can ruin their future...or make it magical.~*~
Single mom Melissa is moving back to Serendipity, Indiana to raise her young son and run her new business—in spite of a painful past and the fact that the man who broke her heart years ago still lives in their hometown.
With his dad’s death, the work of the family Christmas tree farm has fallen to Jim Standish. But how can he hold everything together for the sake of his family, when his past is pulling him apart? Nobody can do it all, and there’s an obvious solution for the Standish family. But in Serendipity, there’s often more going on than a casual observer will ever know.
A new tragedy puts Melissa and her son in closer contact with the Standish family. Ignoring the past, and Jim Standish’s part in it, is no longer an option.
This is a story about second chances: facing difficulties of the past and not only moving on, but becoming stronger because of them. It’s also a story about “coincidences” in life that may be more than that.
A delightful touch of Christmas magic makes Small Town Christmas a story that ends on a sigh!
Small town Christmas
This is my first book by this author, but unfortunately this book wasn’t for me. In my opinion, the passage of time was too quick which lead to gaps in the story. Also, the ending just left the story hanging. More time given to develop the characters would be helpful along with a more complete ending could help in changing my opinion. I realize the author is trying to hook you into buying more books in this series but there are better ways of doing such and instead of enticing me to buy more, it’s doubtful I’ll buy any future books from this author.
